Time Out Doha’s 2019 Restaurant Awards nominees revealed

Doha’s best restaurants 2019 are about to be revealed by Time Out Doha.

Across 25 categories, restaurants throughout the capital city are set to be awarded for their commitment to fantastic dining experiences.

And now, we’re ready to reveal who made the shortlists.

Over the past 12 months, Time Out Doha’s team of reviewers have eaten their way all over the city, visiting restaurants anonymously and always paying for their meals.

The winners will be revealed in a dazzling ceremony on Wednesday June 19 at the Grand Hyatt Doha – and bookings for tables are now being taken.

For event table bookings, prices and event queries, please contact tablebookings@timeoutdoha.com.
