This was the best meal we have had in Doha. The Indian dishes were so tasty and spicy with great service. What more do you need?

Well worth a visit, nice atmosphere, very chilled out, staff are nice and attentive. Food was tasty, would go again. Live music a good addition. Please though relocate the Koi carp, the pond is too small.

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

Description
Chingari which translates as 'sparkling charcoal' delightfully crackles with autenticity and brings genuine Tandoor cuisine to Doha. Dine in Maharaja splendour as you feast on our freshest produce, marinated and cooked in traditional clay ovens, whilst musicians serenade you with sweet ghazals from India.
