How about letting us know the best eateries in town!

Maharajah is one my favorites.
The Great Wall is not as good as Beijing?
Ric's Country Kitchen not bad and close to the Gulag.

Mall eateries are more or less the same everywhere. Nandoos, although it's a chain eatery, is one of the better ones, in my book. I recently had a very good North Indian meal at the Garden. The prices are very reasonable.

Doha Rocks! opens to connoisseurs’ delight

Naveed Abdulla, Business Director of Gulf Star Group, with the staff of Doha Rocks! yesterday during the inauguration. ABDUL BASIT

DOHA: After a gastronomic journey of 35 years Samco, which has become part of Doha residents’ way of life for pioneering mouth-watering grilled sandwiches in the city, has changed its face and the public can now experience its latest offerings as it opened its doors after a total refurbishment yesterday.

Now called Doha Rocks!, the café lounge under Gulf Star Group, was inaugurated yesterday in the presence of a large crowd.

Samco has undergone a complete makeover in keeping with the fast moving and rocking Doha, hence its new name. Doha Rocks! brings more to the table than before, while retaining all the ingredients that made it a household name in the country.

Located just minutes away from the Doha International Airport, the lounge has an amazing fun, casual and modern vibe with trendy, comfortable interiors — all designed by Gulf Star Designs & Interiors — and original murals on the wall depicting old and present-day Doha.

Doha Rocks! offers an amazing array of juices and beverages, including live charcoal Grill and Tandoor station and the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, and regular signature sandwiches. Celebrity chef to Bollywood star Sridevi is the expert behind the Grill and Tandoor offering.

Treats from the sandwich, tandoor, pastry, and juice and beverage corner are available 24/7 and the continental breakfast is served between 6.30 and 9.30 in the morning. Lunch comprises the authentic charcoal Dum biryani, which originated from ancient Persia, with variations of lamb, chicken, fish or vegetable served between 11.30am and 3.30pm only.

Doha Rocks! employs state-of-the-art technology in its kitchens and the live-tandoor station, is wi-fi enabled and also the first café lounge to offer an online service for deliveries in Doha. Orders can be placed online at www.doharockscafe.com, by giving a landline number the customer will receive a call confirming the order which will then be delivered to the stated address.

Every morning at 6.30 the management will choose two customers as Doha Rockers of the day based on a quirky factor that changes every day.

The names of all the Doha Rockers go onto the Board from which the Doha Rockers of the month will be selected to win prizes such as the latest gizmo, prized tickets to a football match or a dream trip to Dubai.

Naveed Abdulla, Business Director of Gulf Star Group and the brains behind the Doha Rocks venture already has plans to open a second outlet in Al Wakrah in August and a third outlet before the end of the year. He has intentions of taking the brand regional shortly thereafter

Wok & Walk Or Walk & Wok at the Diamond Hotel is good for hot Chinese. They also have an extensive varied eat in menu as well. Near the public library and they do take away/delivery.

Tandoori at the FFC near the airport has a good rep as well.

The Iraqi Restaurant in Souk Waqif has some amazing photos. Food is similar to Syrian food.

Fair East Restaurant on Mirqab Street. Moon Palace also on Mirqab Street near Family Food is not bad but has deteriorated. Good Korean dishes.

Being single (again), I eat out a lot so any recommendations are muchappreciated. Nice to take the gal pals out for a meal, no strings.

American Grill isn't too bad. The prices are about the same as Bennigan's.

It's at the Somerset Hotel in West Bay, opposite Hotel W and near the City Center.

Very good service.

A pal took me to Chowpatty's down behind HSBC on Grand Hamad. Not bad for a quickie cheapie. There is supposed to be another one somewhere else.

Avoid going Mandarin at Ramada Junction - you'll never get out of the parking lot. That said, they do make good juice shakes.

Tastets great and the entree and rice is enough for two meals for me
