Directions: Location: Al Rayyan Road, heading towards the Amiri Diwan.
This restaurant has a range of food, from Gulf and Lebanese to European, but with a name like Al Hamra we could hardly place it anywhere else. It also perfectly suits the Arab family's preference for privacy, with many of the tables completely shielded from view. When we ate there we stuck to Arabic food: delicous Hamour Kabsa (slices of fish in fragrant yellow rice, as pictured above), grilled quail and mixed grill. The meat dishes were standard fare in Qatar, accompanied by bread, chips and red onions and with little in the way of vegetables, although the meat itself was grilled just right.

One of the best Arab resturants.

We found this place on a main road close to the bowling alley. The eating area is upstairs and no one was there eating. Normally this is a bad sign. But the food here was great. We had the bbq chicken and it was the best I have had here. The portions were good sized and the price for the entrees were very reasonable. I will frequent the place as the menu is varied from Arab to Italian.

We've just returned from a trip to Qatar and have only positive impressions and especially regarding this restaurant. Great arabic food and service. We recommend it.

May be my opinion on this matter is not that important, but I have to say it,
May be the feast we ordered is just too big for this resturant, but that was my experience
