It’s summer, which means venturing out of the cool A/C into the great outdoors even for such staples as food is a mission worthy of commemoration in song (at least in our heads). And turning on an oven or stovetop? Anything making heat in our apartment is out of bounds. Thankfully, there’s a brigade of brave motorcyclists ready to jet to your door, bag in hand, bringing you something tasty.

We’ve rounded up 51 surefire options that will keep you ensconced in your chilly fortress for the duration, full and happy. Let the eating commence!


American Grill
Ease of ordering:
Super easy.
Delivery time: 1/5
Times: Sun-Thu 11am-2am, Fri 1pm-2am
Verdict: When you want a massive burger that will dribble down your front, this is the place to go. With huge, hearty portions and some of the best chilli we’ve ever tasted, it’s a must if you want a burger that bites back.
Get it: 4411 0188

Ease of ordering:
Ridiculously easy. These guys are pros.
Delivery time: 1/5
Times: Sun-Thu 11am-2am, Fri 1pm-2am
Verdict: An American chain with simple, easy items, the boneless barbecue wings here are excellent. Applebees will also deliver its beverages, including the frozen juice concoctions. But portions do seem to be smaller when you order than when you eat in.
Get it: 4442 7753 or 4436 0747

Black and White
Ease of ordering:
Delivery time: 3/5
Times: Daily 11am-midnight
Verdict: Set up as a ’50s American diner, it offers exactly what Archie comics defined as ‘classic American’ – burgers, French fries, and sandwiches. These are tastier than the average burger, though, and the garlic mayonnaise a must to add to your order.
Get it: 4444 4585

Bread and Bagels
Ease of ordering:
Simple if you’ve got the menu in front of you.
Delivery time: 2/5
Times: Sun-Thu 7am-10pm, Fri 9am-10pm
Verdict: Some of the best (and only) bagels in Doha, we’re also really into the pizza versions, and the number of things offered that can be slapped on a bagel. Sandwich based, these are easy to adjust to suit your taste. Be sure to order a side of the wicked potato salad.

JG Sandwich Cellar
Ease of ordering:
Super ridiculously easy.
Delivery time: 4/5
Times: Sun-Thu 7am-10pm, Fri-Sat 8am-10pm
Verdict: A British café-style restaurant, it’s packed with UK favourites like fish and chips and pies with all manner of fillings, plus hearty sandwiches. It’s also got some of the tastiest French toast we’ve ever had, and with some gentle begging you can even get breakfast foods delivered at night – which pleases us and our maple-syrup-huffing souls.
Get it: 4435 7559

Johnny Rockets
Ease of ordering:
Delivery time: 2/5
Times: Daily 7am-1am
Verdict: American burgers and fries with a ’50s twist, the onion rings are magical wizards from deep-fried Mars.
Get it: 4455 2792

Ease of ordering:
Delivery time: 3/5
Times: Daily 11.30am-1.30pm
Verdict: Tasty chicken that’s easily made healthier (although why you’d want to skip on the fantastic potato wedges we don’t know), it comes in a variety of spice levels. Ask for extra winget sauce to dunk your fries in – you won’t regret it. There is a QR100 minimum order for delivery.
Get it: Al Sadd (4432 2718); Salwa (4435 6756)
