Are you traveling to Qatar and in need of some ideas for where to eat, but don’t want to spend all your travel money? This article will guide you on some of the best places to eat in Qatar, without sacrificing your budget. Even better, the restaurants listed here were recommended directly by Falcon Travel members.

1. King of Chicken

King of Chicken

Location: Bin Omran & Muntazah

Our first restaurant on this list is King of Chicken, serving a selection of Arabic dishes, grilled food, and sandwiches. We highly recommend their Lamb Lemon Tikka, Boneless Grilled Chicken, and Mix Grill & Rocca Salad.

2. Hanok

Hanok Restaurant

Location: Museum Street, Old Salata, Doha

Hanok is an authentic Korean restaurant, serving a wide variety of delicious Korean dishes, as well as the popular Korean barbecue in which grills are provided to customers for use at their table. We recommend trying out their Korean Set Meals, Snow Cheese Fried Chicken, and Red Sauce Tteokbokki.

3. Thalatheen


Location: Qatar National Museum

If you are on the search for a restaurant that serves vegan and plant-based food, look no further than Thalatheen. Health-conscious foodies will be pleased to know that Thalatheen makes it easy to tell if an item in their menu is plant-based, gluten-free, raw, and/or contains peanut (for those with allergy concerns). Dishes such as burgers and shawarma, usually coming with meat, are instead made with meat-free alternatives. We recommend trying The Neat Burger, Wonderful Potato Wedges with their homemade ketchup, and the Date Latte.

4. Sobingsu Qatar


Location: Bin Mahmoud

Have a craving for something sweet and looking to beat the heat? Head on over to Sobingsu, a café that serves authentic Korean desserts, coffee, and more. Bingsu, their main item, is a Korean shaved ice dessert often topped with fruit, condensed milk, syrup, and beans. You can choose from a variety of flavors when you visit Sobingsu. Try out their Mango Cheese Bingsu, Melon Bingsu, and Yuzuade (made from Yuzu, a citrus fruit popular in Korea and Japan).
