It's a good 40 minutes from Doha by car up the Dukhan Highway to the Al Shahaniya exit (camel races) and then you take the roundabout and come back towards Doha. It's a few miles back down on the right. I generally look for the row of trees to know when the turn is coming up. (I go to the equestrian center out there for lessons thus knowing the landmarks.)

As far as the museum, it's completely free which is really nice. And the people working there are cheerful and friendly. The exhibits are nice pieces but they are very disorganized and don't always make the most sense as far as where they are located in the museum. But it seemed to be pretty well lit and things weren't exactly stacked upon each other. It's a shame that things are marked a bit better.

We are happy that we went. I think you could spend several hours really looking at things, but we were there with our young kids and they were finished in about an hour. We were allowed to go into the fossil exhibit which had to be unlocked for us.

All in all, worth the trip. I mean it's free and there is a lot of Qatar history in that building. It will be much better once they get the cafe and shops built and up and running.

Museum of Islamic Art
23/01/2014 

Exquisite collection of art from Islamic countries, or those that have or have had in the past significant Muslim populations.

The artifacts are housed in an architectural gem of a building on Doha's Corniche.

Fabulous collection, exquisitely presented, gorgeous building, magical terrace, good cafe, gift shop well-stocked with art books and catalogues of the collection.

Don't miss this when in Doha.

Mandi House

An excellent place for Chicken mandi or mazbi in the quiet neighborhood of Al Barsha.. with huge portions of chicken and rice with hot soup, salad, tomato dip and a yogurt.
The price is affordable about 25 aed for the mandi and 29 aed for mazbi :-)

Cafe Flo

The food is great.. great steaks have been there many times but the only problem is the service charge they actully charge almost a meal on service (tip) which in my opinion is wrong.

Amazing local food, surroundings, people, very reasonable. They have nice bbq like Chicken Kebabs/ tikka's, Afghani tikka, Karhai. They also serve continental food. You have many choices to sit and chill out with your dinner. Open area with cool breeze from Karachi beach, then 2 inhouse sitting arrangement with nice & cozy enviornment then comes roof top..!! Must try this place.
