I am a fussy eater when it comes to Indian food ( probably because of being an Indian and being married to a chef (who is an amazing cook) for more than 20 years ). I avoid eating Indian food outside, but this time my interest was in saving. So, Doha festival city has a royalty program that is free to register for and offers deals for dining at different food outlets in the mall. Our favorite ones are for Papa jones ( buy one large pizza and get one free ) and the Magic Wok ( buy one starter and get the appetizer free ). I was out with my husband ( who is a total Indian food fanatic) so decided to try Shamiana and what a surprise it turned out to be. We bought a Tandoori chicken combo( 2 pieces of tandoori chicken, biryani rice, mutton curry, chicken curry, dal, and tandoori roti ) for 33 riyals or so and got a vegetarian combo( chickpea curry, aloo gobi, dal, biryani rice, and tandoori roti ) free ( worth 33 riyals or so ). This Discount was by using the Doha festival rewards code.
Yes, the food was cold, but it was tastefully cooked nothing a green chili could not fix. It tasted something like I would cook at home, not like food that is cooked in a restaurant overloaded with spices of all kinds. Something I would definitely recommend.
