Dined here several times and we loved the way they cook the cuisine. One of the best Indian restaurants we tried in Doha. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I visited this hyped restaurant with my wife and kid, it was indeed a wrong choice. Food was below average, service was very very bad, the only thing I appreciate about this place is the live music. The singers put in a lot of effort to impress the audience. Talking about food, well it was bland totally off my palate.... More

The restaurant was nice with some intimate spaces and decorative details. The service was also quick and friendly. But for the price and the hype (just the water cost QR 28), my husband and I were both unimpressed with our dishes: palak aloo and butter chicken. They weren't bad, just bland. I was also disappointed that they didn't have live... More

Our first return visit for a while and a huge let down.

We enjoyed our stay at Chingari, with great food, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Just be careful, when the menu says, it is spicey, it probably is for European tase. We defintily will come again.

This is the best Indian restaurant I have been so far in Doha. The staff delivered an exceptional service. Although the interior seems to be a bit dark, the ambiance and the music compensates for a relaxed evening dinner.

I come to Chingari just for the Fish Tandoori which usually comes with big prawn(s) and fish. The service is poliTe and helpful. And the style of the restaurant meets all expectations if you want to have the "I'm in India" feeling. Dark red cushion seats, low tables, elephant statues, Indian live music etc.

My husband and I have a guilty pleasure - a love for Indian food paired with a glass of shiraz.
