The restaurant is located in Souq Waqif. The place was like old Qatar. Ordered chicken and lamb dishes. Forgot the names though. Surely, it's worth the experience.

Very unique food and you dont have to travel to a war zone to eat this. Right in the heart of doha is this pearl of an eatery. Weekends are horrendous- waiting only. Go on a lzay weekday with family and you wont regret it.

This place is a bit of an institution, it's the best place for Yemeni food in Doha. I have visited it for breakfast, lunch and dinner but usually take breakfast there on weekends. A group of 8 of us ordered spicy tuna, foul, liver .The Yemeni breads are the best . We enjoyed the food immensely. You generally should not... More

The location is great - just off the main thoroughfare of Souq Waqif, a great place to stop when you work up an appetite from the shopping and sightseeing. The food is so tasty and unbelievably cheap. You can get stewed curries, roasted meat, rice, fresh flat... More

I heard a lot from a friend about this restaurant, and I was expecting some excellent Yamani food, but I found the food presented was average, I mean in this location (Souq Waqif) the food must be outstanding. however, the bread was great as they serve it hot, and its a busy place with a nice seating area.

Wow, was taken to this restaurant by a family friend. Very busy, but was not disappointed. The meat is just to die for, just melts in your mouth, superbly cooked. Will return.
