Qatar Travel – Cuisine

Aziziya Street  

Enjoy fabulous food choices, from high-end to fast and affordable

Aziziya Street is a bustling commercial area between Salwa Road and Al Waab Street – and home to some very popular restaurants and eateries. Check out Chinese, Egyptian, Lebanese, Qatari, Thai and Turkish, as well as more Western dishes. The offering includes healthy lifestyle choices for fitness-focused foodies. 

Souq Waqif 

Drop in at the souq for authentic Arabic food at its best

Souq Waqif is an amazing spot for the very best in authentic Arabic cuisine. So, if you’re missing home or want to try something completely new, this is the place to be. You’ll find traditional Qatari, Iraqi, Syrian, Iranian and Yemeni delicacies – and much more. Take your time to search the alleyways and uncover every surprise. 

Brunches 

Hotel brunches offer great deals, including all you can eat

Get brunched at a high-class hotel and feast on a wide range of global cuisine. This is the thing to do among Doha’s expats – some even say it’s an institution – on Friday (aka the weekend). Look around for deals and discounts for kids. 

Nasr Street 

Discover great budget food from just about everywhere in the world

It’s all about eats on Nasr Street: Arabic for sure, plus great Filipino places, alongside some of the best Turkish food in Qatar. Or do you fancy some spicy Tunisian fare? Tuck in, then wash it down with a healthy smoothie from one of many hip juice bars.   

Duhail Night Market  

If food trucks excite you, take an after dark pit stop here

Duhail Night Market is about more than food trucks – street eats is a scene. Think hip American Airstream trailers and cute micro-vans each decorated in their own theme. On the menu you’ll find custom burgers, hotdogs, fries, Indian food, Thai desserts and the wildly popular Qatari cookies. Ride up and pull over. 

Souq Al Wakrah  

A quaint seaside marketplace with beachfront restaurants

Satisfy all your taste buds – try the Arabic delicacies and sweets, have some authentic fresh seafood, or be predictable and have an ice cream by the seaside! Venture the winding alleyways and make your way to the five star hotel to enjoy some fine dining. Get your fill – then walk it off on the shore.  

Hiteen Street, Muntazah  

Hit up Hiteen Street for some good eats

If Msheireb is on your sightseeing list, make sure to pass by Hiteen Street in Muntazah – a small district in Doha where much of the infrastructure has remained the same for decades. Although this area is a quintessential piece of Doha, its range of eateries leans more towards south-eastern Asian with Chinese, Malaysian, Indonesian and Japanese cuisines. 

Al Jazeera Street, Bin Mahmoud  

A whole world of flavours awaits you

Venture past Al Bidda Park where the FIFA Fan Festival™ will be located, and you will find yourself in food heaven. Take a stroll up Al Jazeera street and find restaurants from all over the globe – Thai, Indian, Egyptian, Tunisian, Pakistani and Filipino.   

Al Matar Al Qadeem 

Get a taste of Qatar at Al Matar

Also known as Old Airport road due to its proximity to the original airport – Doha International Airport – this 2km long road is a popular spot for local, Arabic and South Asian food. With a list of cuisines nearly as long as the road itself, you can satisfy your craving here – find affordable Karak tea, Filipino dishes and authentic sit-on-the-floor Afghan meals. 

Qatar Sports Club 

Have a happy stomach and a happy wallet

Perhaps an unusual location for fast food and dessert restaurants, Qatar Sports Club in central Doha has made a name for itself amongst Doha’s foodies. From sit-down establishments to drive-thru joints, this spot is popular due to its extensive range of eateries. You can find everything from juices and smoothies, to three-course Arabic and International meals.  

The Pearl-Qatar 

Expensive tastes for any budget

European style meets Middle Eastern flair at this exclusive island. Enjoy tastes from all over the world at Porto Arabia with its exceptional marina views and docked luxury yachts. Meander through the Venice-like streets in Qanat Quartier and grab a bite to eat along the canals at one of the many innovative cafes.
