Top choice desserts in Doha

Now here's somewhere special. Those with a sweet tooth should make a beeline for these splendid Middle Eastern and Turkish filo pastries such as baklava, which are freshly made in-house to perfection. Salivatingly good sweets are laid out on the counter – the melt-in-the-mouth kunafeh (a soft or crispy pastry filled with white cheese and soaked in syrup) is our favourite.

The staff can also box up a selection of sweets for you to take away and enjoy. Ask nicely, and you may get to try a sample before you buy. A couple of large pieces should set you back around QR15.
