Craving for an authentic Indian Masala Dosa or Dahi Puri? We all know that finding good vegetarian restaurants can be challenging while you are out of India. Eating out can be even more challenging in Gulf countries, where non-vegetarian specialities are more popular.
Luckily, Qatar is a country with a diverse population and plenty of restaurants that specialise in Indian vegetarian dishes. We have prepared this list of Vegetarian Restaurants in Doha based on online dining reviews, delivery app reviews and our personal experiences.
We are including only pure-vegetarian restaurants that do not serve any non-veg dishes. If you do not mind non-veg dishes being served on the same premises, there are even more Indian restaurants to check out.
