Bennigans: where the playground as big as the restaurant


My straightforward review:

– Food: **

Steak and chicken combo come in not too large size. But enough  for two people. Both chicken and steak are tasty with tendency to a bit salty. Lamb chop was cooked very well. No lamb meat smell remained. However it seems that lamb meat was not fresh (I mean cooked from frozen). Spagheti for children was far from delicious, not recommended. Buffalo chicken salad come in a full plate. Boneless chicken wings – again – salty, but the salad itself was fresh, and good. For drink, QR8 ice tea refill is recommended. Bennigans also offers regional favorites, tailored to Middle East such as hommous, taboula, fatoush, chicken or lamb kabab.

– Service: ****

Staff is polite, communicative, efficient and friendly. Service is quick.

– Facilities: ***

As the title says, Bennigans boasts the largest indoor restaurant playground in Doha. Aside from this, an outdoor playground is also available. This 288-seat wood-panelled restaurant offers separate family and non-family seating. Ambience is good. Toilet facilities are clean. Unfortunately, no prayer room is available (if my observation is right)

– Location: ****

Easily accessed from Markhiya St. with plenty parking lots. Enough for maybe hundres of cars.

– Price: ***

Comparable with similar restaurants such as Apple Bee, chilis, or TGIF.
