My colleagues and I went to this place on a Thursday evening and I am one of the many of us that are not satisfied. The food came cold and way too salty. The chicken, the lamb chops, even the shawarma is not appetising. The...More

I chose the Al Bandar Fish Market due to my health concerns, so the fish menu catches my eyes and gave a try. I order grilled Hammour fish without any sauces to avoid the sodium. The chef did care about my request and make it...More

Starters were particularly good; we had moutabel, tabouleh, hummus, halloumi and calamari, all served with fresh bread. Main courses of hammour, lamb, chicken biryani were all tasty. Very nice and welcoming service and food that suited all of the fussy palates!

I ordered Al Bandar sea food dish (75 QAR) and expected different grilled fish and seafood with separate sauce. Instead I got kind of curry of mixed seafood with sauce similar to Chinese dishes. It was ok but did not cost 20$...

This is the place to go if you enjoy your food being dropped in front of you like you're in a prison cafeteria. Two stars only because food was edible and not entirely terrible. Can't say the same for table service. We asked for our...More
