We waited 10 minutes for a server to come to our table after being seated, and then 20 minutes for Diet Pepsis to arrive. We enjoyed the food, but then when we ordered coffees after the meal that took another 20 minutes. By the time we finished our lunch the place was filling up with shisha smokers, so we had... More

I had numerous cappuccinos, Turkish coffees to start. All well made. Then I moved onto the hummus. Exactly what you would expect for a Lebanese place: excellence. Their soups were also delicious. Will go again!

On my last visit to Doha, the only meal I had was at Al Balad. Amazing food, great Lebanese atmosphere and audience. The staff including their managers are very friendly and helpful. Totally Recommended!

Its appears to be a classy Lebanese restaurant like other refined ones in the town. Unfortunately its not what you expect seeing the advertisement or the restaurant. The service is ok, food is bland, plain. They need to improve the service and the get some better hands to cook. Comment is not based on one dish we were in a... More

Not impressed with the flavors or the service. Pricey too for just Lebanese food. The servers have attitude and so doe the manager and cook. The impression I received was that I should be happy they were allowing me to dine in their restaurant.

It is next to my office so i often go for lunch. Decent food, original Lebanese, and Lebanese people agree on that. Good and fast service, locals, families but also businessmen. They also deliver at home. No alcohol, non smoking except in the outside tables (suitable only in the winter).
