This isn't the first time I've eaten here, and I enjoy the location and the atmosphere. It reminds me of the interior of an antique house boat. The staff are great. Helpful and attentive, but not over-bearing. I loved the complimentary papadums and relishes to start. My main meal was garlic naan (excellent) and the stuffed spinach balls in a... More

I have eaten at this restaurant quite a few times over the years I have been travelling to Doha. The food is still on the whole good, but the interior and fittings are showing their age and need refreshed. The chicken tikka starter I had was superb. Hot, very tasty and a huge portion for a starter. However, I also... More

Had a very enjoyable meal, not as expensive as I thought it may be before entering. Started with poppadoms, crispy and dry as I like them. Lime Pickle has a nice kick. Then had Paneer Tikka, paneer was a little soft but mixed with nice crunchy peppers it was certainly enjoyable. Followed with a Chicken Jalfrezi (good amount of chicken,... More

This is where I would go for the most delicious biryani (beef/lamb is recommended). The dishes are pricey but you will not regret as it is worth the waiting and money well spent. Biryani is not the regular fast serving dish. The biryani will require about 15 to 20 mins of waiting. I am not sure what is happening in... More

I have never left any negative review in my life but the experience I had with Royal tandoor – Souk waqif left me with no other option but to write. We all expect some sort of standard when you go out to eat. Unfortunately, the standard at this restaurant was very poor. Where do I start? Having entered the restaurant,... More

We can fall for the ambience of the hotel. It has one of the best finishings in the Souq and is lovely decorated. Menu is on the tablets and we can order on the tablets. Food was equally good and I have noticed crowd standing to get a seat.

Heading into the Royal Tandoor looked like a big mistake. The place is absolutely below average. But when the food came, it was AMAZING. Definitely reminded me of the saying don't judge a book by its cover.

Wasn't sure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised at how good the food was in this place. The staff were very friendly, the food delicious and plentiful and value for money. Would highly recommend. Only negative wasn't sure about ordering food via a tablet, I'm old fashioned and like a menu I can look over.
