Some Words
About Us

Since its establishment in 2002, Layali has consistently stood out as Doha's Premier Lebanese dining destination, garnering recognition for its excellence.

It was honored twice by Qatar Today as the top Arabic Cuisine restaurant in the nation in both 2007 and 2010. In 2012, Layali further solidified its reputation by receiving the Best Middle Eastern Cuisine Award from Time Out Doha Magazine.

With 2 branches, at West Walk & Doha Port, Layali encapsulates Lebanon's rich cultural heritage, influenced by a history dating back centuries, including the region's diverse historical influences dating back to well before the 1500s. This historical tapestry has greatly shaped Lebanese gastronomy, establishing it as one of the most beloved cuisines in the Middle East.

The name Layali, meaning "nights" in Arabic, was chosen thoughtfully to evoke the enchanting atmosphere reminiscent of the lively soirées of old Andalusia and the mystical Arabian nights of the 17th century. Upon entering the restaurant, guests are greeted by a warm ambiance and an interior décor that reflects a fusion of contemporary Lebanese decor and historical charm.

Layali offers an ideal setting to savor its exquisite cuisine and a traditional Shisha with a variety of tobacco flavors. Combined with its meticulous Lebanese hospitality and historical ambiance, dining at Layali is an unforgettable experience that lingers in the memory long after the meal is finished.
