Qatar’s multicultural atmosphere is also reflected in its cuisine: you can look forward to culinary discoveries and a diverse gastronomic scene, from street snack bars to gourmet restaurants.

Street Food and Star Cuisine

The way to a country’s heart is not only through its stomach. You can also get to know the country and its people in a wonderful way at the table. This is especially true in Qatar, where food culture is highly valued and cultivated. Qatari cuisine is a colorful mixture with influences from India, Persia, Lebanon and North Africa and, like the country as a whole, is constantly evolving. You can discover it in simple street kitchens as well as in Michelin-starred restaurants. Gourmets should mark their calendars for the Qatar International Food Festival, which always takes place in March.
