Restaurants

Dive into Doha’s dynamic dining scene with our guide to five unique eateries that capture the city’s gastronomic diversity and cultural richness, including authentic Qatari delights at Al Jasra and the high-altitude, panoramic Three Sixty.

Meet you there?

A cosy seating area. Long, seemingly luxurious couches line a rectangular area. Cushions decorate the couches and separate them into smaller seating areas. Four low hexagonal tables are in the area within the couches. To each side of the couches are dining tables, and the back wall is lined with windows and sumptuous curtains. Orb-shaped lamps hang from the ceiling. This is the Restaurant Argan at Al Jasra Boutique Hotel.

Three Sixty at the Torch

A curved wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Along the wall are a series of tables and chairs, some set restaurant-style for four people, some set for two. A carpet runs under the tables. On either side of the carpet, large tiles are visible. There are several rounded pillars dotted along the wall of windows. These support a beam that appears to be about a metre and a half from the floor. The view from the windows is over a city. It's clear that the restaurant is quite high up.

Let’s face it… You don’t come to Doha for ordinary. Three Sixty offers a unique dining experience. The revolving restaurant is located on the 47th floor of the Torch, currently the tallest building in all of Qatar, and diners can experience a panoramic view of the Doha skyline while enjoying Mediterranean-style cuisine. The restaurant also offers vegetarian, vegan, halal and gluten-free options.

Irish Harp

Bar interior. A checkered tile floor. Red brick walls, covered with pictures in old-style frames and illustrations of the Irish harp. A TV hangs on the wall in the left of the image. Two wooden tables with high chairs on the left, and two barrels that have been turned into tables in the centre. To the right is the bar itself, which is wooden, and has a brass foot rail and brass hooks for coats and bags. Five high chairs are lined up in front of the bar. A bowl of lemons sits on the bar next to cocktail-making equipment (shakers, a strainer and a jigger).

Irish Harp is open daily from 5pm until 2am, with a resident DJ and regular live music performances. If you’re in the mood for a game, it also screens all major sporting events, including football and cricket. Irish Harp has a daily Happy Hour (from 5pm to 8pm) with selected drinks, and hosts Ladies’ Night every Tuesday. If that’s not enough, there’s a Latin Night each Wednesday for salsa lovers. What about food, you say? There’s an extensive pub grub menu you can tuck into when you’re hungry.

Al Shurfa Arabic Lounge

A rooftop restaurant. Inside a glass-walled room with a retractable ceiling are two low wooden tables, each surrounded by three wooden armchairs with cushions on them. Outside the glass wall is a terrace with tables that appear to be metal, and chairs that appear to be some sort of rattan weave. Beyond the terrace, a city skyline is visible, with a cluster of skyscrapers in the centre. It's dusk.

Located in the heart of old Doha, Al Shurfa offers more than just a dining experience. The restaurant overlooks the vibrant Souq Waqif marketplace and offers an extraordinary view of a busy neighbourhood. The cuisine is a blend of Lebanese and Mediterranean flavours – think tabbouleh, fattoush, hummus, kofta and kebabs.

Saasna

A large plate piled high with spiced rice, chicken legs and lemon wedges (Qatari chicken majboos) in the centre of the frame. Arrayed around the large plate are a smaller plate of flatbreads that are topped with herbs and pomegranate seeds, a dish of chopped onion, a dish of dates, and a dish of pomegranate seeds.

You can’t leave Doha without trying authentic Qatari cuisine… Immerse yourself at Saasna, a restaurant – located in the vibrant area of Msheireb Downtown Doha – that draws its name from the word ‘asaasna’, meaning ‘our origins’. Head chef Sheikha Ahmed Al Meer is well known in Qatar, and is the author of The Art of Qatari Cooking. Try the chicken mashkul (a chicken and rice dish bursting with flavour of spices, almonds, saffron and raisins, and follow it with a cardamom-infused ballaleet for dessert.

Nobu Doha

Open-air restaurant. People sit in rattan chairs arranged around round tables. Rattan sun shades arc over some of the tables. The people are chatting and smiling, and some are holding drinks. Large lanterns containing lit candles dot the tiled walkways, which lead to an interior bar area. A low wall separates the tables from a body of water. On the other side of the water, not too far away, are a cluster of brightly lit skyscrapers. It's dusk.

Nobu Doha has become synonymous with celebrity sightings, and it’s no wonder why. This upscale chain of Japanese fusion restaurants is pure luxury dining. Designed by the acclaimed architect David Rockwell, the Nobu Doha is housed on its own pier. Come for Nobu’s signature dish – the black cod in miso – and stay for the foie gras shiitake dumplings and the whitefish sashimi.
