Besides being the un-official national drink of Qatar, Karak is a favourite drink of both Qataris and expats alike.

Are you a regular drinker of Chai Karak? Let us know where you get your fix and so we can update our Karak listing.

Please leave an address/phone number of the place in the comments below, unless someone else has beaten you to it - then you can list a different place that you know of or can recommend.

p.s. This thread is going to be about Karak - nothing else :)

Rizks emporium is as true as Father Christmas it all depends how much you believe that both exist, yet make people happy to talk about it!

On a serious note, prefer Karak from fresh milk rather than the tin milk which is most widely used here in Qatar!

I would recommend PappaRoti, the best so far! The one in Al Emadi Financial Square C-Ring Road, once tasted you'd know why too much Qataris keep on coming, as well as expats, and the service is great.

Only at Rizks!!!

He has a special chair reserved for me :)

and his service is the best in Qatar..plus, of course, the flavour of his karak is heavenly!

He also has a very comfortable and reliable transportation service :)

I am Karak Chai lover

The best, as per my taste buds :

-Tea Time in Al Sadd (Near Jarir Bookstore)

-Al Naiemi in Al Sadd and Petrol Station near Land Mark.

Don't like much the one at 'Karak & Chappti'. A bit heavy and more cardmone-flavoured.
