Spice Market ticks all boxes when it comes to lavish yet fun fine-dining. The atmosphere is always lively here, even on a weekday, and the staff are courteous and very proactive. The tuna tartare with its spicy radish and ginger vinegar sauce is unbeatable and the chicken wings are real show-stoppers. Whatever you try on this ever-changing menu, you’re sure to love and it’s no surprise Spice Market has snagged this award.
W Doha Hotel & Residences, West Bay (4453 5000).
The recent change in menu to include cuisines from four specific regions – India, Thailand, Japan and China – is such a welcome update and whether you choose to dine indoors or on the pretty terrace area, Elements is always a great experience.
Four Seasons Hotel Doha, West Bay (4494 8888).
The dim lighting, gorgeous views from the 61st floor of Kempinski, perfect music and serene ambience all come together creating an atmosphere perfect for date night or any special occasion. The chicken wings are unique with a coriander and jalapeño sauce adding the perfect amount of heat. The sushi is some of the best in town and the kung pao prawns are a must-try, too. Overall, a perfect pan-Asian experience.
Kempinski Residences & Suites, West Bay (4405 3560).
Cosy and secluded, this restaurant takes you on a culinary journey through the Far East. Their Dragon rolls are known to be some of the best in town, and we don't disagree.
Doha Marriott Hotel (4477 4124).
There’s no better spot in Doha for authentic Indonesian and Malaysian food. This simple, no-frills restaurant provides the best dishes from the region and you will love how fuss-free the entire experience is. Best part? The prices are unbeatable.
Al Muntazah (7045 6262).
Their ambience is basic but their butter prawns aren't. A popular option for budget friendly and simple but tasty dining.
Najma (3336 3279).
This international restaurant with a theatre-like setup featuring plush chandeliers, fancy carpeting and an overall grand vibe does some really delicious pan-Asian food. The seekh kebabs with a hint of mustard are brilliant with three chutneys are served alongside. The kung pao prawns are phenomenal here and rice is unlimited, at no extra charge.
City Centre Rotana Doha, West Bay (4445 8888).
This gem in The Gate Mall really impresses with its menu and dishes. The sushi stacks here are interesting and the curries are droolworthy. This is also one of the few places that serves our ultimate favourite fried ice cream for dessert.
