The Big Five: Late Night Bites

The Big Five: Late Night Bites

In a city that truly comes to life once the sun goes down, we sometimes find ourselves out and about until the early hours. Despite many places staying open, your choices become more and more limited the later it gets, with fast food quickly becoming your only option. It doesn’t have to be that way though, and the next time you hear a burger and fries calling your name, you’ll have more selection than ever before.

Here’s The Big Five: Late Night Bites:

Tea Time

Tea Time can be found in all corners of the city, and despite having an enormous menu of snacks, juices and combo meals, it is most commonly known for one thing – karak. An order of the sweet, aromatic tea infused with a subtle cardamom flavour is the perfect way to round off your night.

Although their food isn’t quite top-quality hotel standard, are you really looking for a Michelin-starred meal at 3 am?

Toot your horn for some curbside service, recline your seat, and enjoy them any time of the day or night!


Edem 46 Ice Cream & Café

If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, what better way to do it than with a bowlful of ice-cream?

‘But where can I grab myself a frozen dessert at five in the morning?’ we hear you ask, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Edam 46 Ice Cream & Café offer a huge range of sweet treats and light snacks 24 hours a day. Located opposite La Cigale Hotel in Al Sadd, it’s the perfect place for a midnight meetup with friends and family, or to pop down and enjoy the football.


Marmara Istanbul Restaurant

If you’ve been in Doha more than five minutes, chances are you’ll have driven past a Marmara Istanbul restaurant. With branches dotted across town, their range of grilled meats and kebabs is almost endless. Whether you opt for their classic shish tawook, moreish shawarmas, or succulent lamb chops, everything is always undeniably delicious.

Bear in mind that their portions are aimed at a hungrier audience, so maybe go for a cold appetiser, mezze or salad are if you aren’t quite hungry enough to devour an entire chicken – their fattoush is amazing incase you’re in need of a little guidance. It’s cheap and cheerful, great value for money, and with home delivery into the early hours, what more could you ask for?


La Boca

La Boca is just one of many restaurants lining Souq Waqif’s main promenade. The Latin American restaurant isn’t limited to just beef empanadas and mozzarella milanesitas – although they’re amongst our favourite things to order. They serve a huge range of international cuisines around the clock, with all kinds of Italian, Arabic, and Argentinian dishes featuring on their menu.

If you don’t want any food and are just looking to quench your thirst, you’ll be amazed by their drinks menu. Freshly squeezed juices, all manner of mocktails, and coffees from all over the world – they’ll have exactly what you’re looking for.


Al Mourjan

Located beside the water’s edge on Doha Corniche, Al Mourjan is widely regarded as one of the very best restaurants in town. Open until 2 am, this award-winning eatery serves stunning mezze platters, cuisine, fresh seafood, and fragrant shisha options.

Boasting incredible views of Doha’s skyline, it’s the perfect spot to sit and relax long into the night. Make sure to grab a basket of fresh bread and a serving of houmous, it’s by far and away some of the best in the city.
