Al Bandar Restaurant for Yemeni Food
Ranked #275 of 1,014 Restaurants in Doha
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Al Bandar is the best way to end off a Qatari visit. Forget about getting a table and rather opt for a room where you sit on the floor surrounded by pillows and everyone eats off a dish in the middle. The grilled chicken and lamb kabsa is proper good food and utterly to die for. It seems fairly simple being meat and rice but the flavours will rival any 5* establishment. Portions are massive so go easy on the menu. Each dish can be shared by 2 or even 3 people and when you're stuffed to the gills and getting the meat sweats just sit back, stretch out and relax for a few minutes... your appetite will return shortly to finish off the rest. Soup or rather a meaty tasting broth is served before main meals arrive so go slowly on that. The naan is gigantic and enough for 4 people if you can manage to get the soft, buttery goodness away from the first person to grab it. Al Bandar is not to be missed.

I was staying opposite this restaurant and noticed the mix of locals, workers and tourists frequenting this place, so thought I would give it a try. So glad I did! I had the vegetable dish which was lightly spiced and hearty, but standout was the fresh bread. Wish I could have taken the leftovers on the plane! Very reasonable price.

Good authentic Yemen food. The bread was amazing and the restaurant was mainly frequented by locals. 70 Riyals for 3 people! From experience they don’t always have everything on the menu.

Al Bandar is an authentic Yemeni restaurant at Souq waqif. It was very popular with both locals and tourists. I tried Chicken stew and my husband the lamb one, both great. The freshly baked bread was yummy. The prices were so low, I don’t know at least compared to everywhere else we ate before in Qatar. Definitely will recommend.

I love this restaurant which is quite simple but the food taste so home made, the portion are very generous even if you are 2 people. The meat and rice is awesome, the meat is so tender and buterry it's literaly melting in your mouth, their curries are totally worthy and the must order is their gigantic bread freshy baked, Iam feeling hungry just by writting this review !
