We like to dine at Layali because the of the foods and the atmosphere in the restaurant. Everytime we eat there, at the end of our meal they always served us a huge plate filled with fruits and some Lebanese sweets.

I went to this restaurant with my family and I loved the place. You can taste there delicious meals of typical lebanese cuisine. If you want to eat something tasty and lebanese you should go there.

- The vibes of the restaurant is pretty good. - I give the service 3 out of 5 - food was horrible especially especially the meat and shish tawoook. Soup was bland. It is over priced and overrated! This is the first and last time I go there.

Nice restaurant. Serves the best* Arabic (Syrian/Lebanese) cosine in town. They serve shisha and have good ventilation. The place is a bit pricy so watch out.

I went there with my colleagues after having heard it is one of the best Lebanese restaurants in town. And it honestly exceeded any expectations we might have had. The food was amazing, the service super attentive and the atmosphere very authentic. All the plates were to die for: hummus, Fatush salad, grilled meat, tabouleh, etc... etc... (the list could...

First dinner in Doha, and was glad my Qatar-based colleague brought me here tof the experience. The food was tasty, and well-presented.

It was great getting to see the diversity of the patrons: mostly expat families from the other GCC countries, one or two actual... More
