I have been here many times mainly for two dishes : 1. Shawarma rolls 2. Barbique/ BBQ Chicken plate - and so far I have not any bad experience, except the fact that one time I felt the Barbique Chicken was either re-heated or too dry.. Not a great ambience for family dining.. But if you are solo - you... More

This restaurant was recommended to us for their Biryanis, so we went along at about 630pm, which is early for Qatari dinner time!. The restaurant was empty when we got there, friendly staff, very basic place but clean. I was excited because it's usually these types of places that sell the best food. I ordered the biryani and my husband... More

This place is great. Quick service and friendly staff. The shawarmas are amazing and they offer other dishes as well - whole/half chicken, curries and rice etc. Great for getting a quick bite on the way home.

As always we had a lovely takeaway from our favourite local restaurant. Food was delivered promptly to the apartment door and was piping hot on arrival. Mixed grill and half chicken were tasty as normal. I also like the fact that you get bread, chips and a nice fresh salad on the side. Great standby for when you are tired... More

not so expensive but the half grilled chicken was tasty and I still think of its taste even after hours of eating it.

Visited the Royal Istanbul with a few friends for a a meal. The good was warm, and delivered promptly. Meat was well cooked and very tasty. Not the best decor, but the food is cheap and tasty.

The shawarmas are really good here and will run you 12 Qr for a large one. This is a restaurant that has quick delivery and works for those on the go who live in the West Bay Area.
