Surprisingly discriminatory maître d’ toward young families. As a family with a 2.5 years old son we decided to finally discover the mouth watering dumplings all of our friends talked so much about. We did give a call in advance and were told that, kids were allowed on week days, we also have friend who went with their own kids under similar circumstances. Much to our surprise and disappointment we were unceremoniously sent back home, despite tables being free.... the lady at the reception has not even tried to contact her manager, but instead insisted, that their restaurant was not meant to be a place, where the little ones were tolerated (despite the aforementioned assurances we were independently given) . It is so funny, how at Shanghai Club (Shangri La Hotel), where we are regulars, they are so welcoming and are extremely happy to see our son (no matter the time and day of the week). Well...turns out, there are some “adult only” restaurants in Doha, so wether the food is good or not, how you are welcomed maters as well, hence the 1 star and the assurance that we will not go there again.

Food is absolutely delicious I cannot fault it at all

Serving staff attentive and helpful

Sitting outside brings a hideous noise every 5minutes which is a car park extractor fan (think of putting your ear next to a plane as it takes off!!) and will leave you semi deaf.

Booking with this restaurant is a huge let down. I don’t know why they can’t get it right, book by email because when they don’t record it they will challenge you for evidence and make you feel unwelcome. Book by email, and phone the day before and an hour before to make sure they log your booking. The receptionists are not welcoming but luckily the bar staff are great and restore your evening!

This restaurant is becoming my favorite restaurant in Doha. I think so far it is the best I have been to in here! This time we ate non-veg dumplings, steamed and fried. They were excellent. It was a windy evening and we sat in the terrace, it was a delightful evening! We will be back.

It's a must go place to eat in Doha - simply excellent food and service in every sense - though the latter was a bit too quick to bring the plates and typically over obsequious - if that's an issue...
