Embark on a Culinary Journey

An exciting array of gastronomic and gourmet concepts awaits at Banyan Tree Doha At La Cigale Mushaireb with the launch of its luxurious restaurants.

Within the glamorous interiors created by acclaimed designer Jacques Garcia, the property is one of the most-anticipated epicurean dining destinations with distinctive venues, signature restaurants and lavish lounges and bars. Boasting curated signature touches, each restaurant is complemented by the mesmerising views of Doha.

Distinguished favourites and new dining concepts introduced by the hotel’s creative chefs are set to elevate Doha’s culinary scene. Offering savoury European and Asian cuisines from its Thai, Indian and Italian kitchens, each restaurant features a dining experience that will tantalise the senses and cater to local food aficionados as well as discerning travellers.


Offering authentic fine-dining Thai cuisine, this dining spot is Banyan Tree’s award-winning signature restaurant. Its menu stays true to classic techniques used in the Kingdom of Thailand. Saffron offers guests a highend experience with cooking methods passed down from generations alongside indigenous ingredients. The restaurant’s innovative menu features authentic and refined flavours from Thai royal palaces, regional specialities and all-time favourites, served with a contemporary and artistic twist.

IL Galante

This genuine Italian kitchen is inspired by the authenticity of the Il Cuoco Galante cookbook by Vincenzo Corrado. The restaurant features traditional Italian cuisine using the finest ingredients in an elegant setting. Vincenzo was a maestro of cookery, a great gastronome and one of history’s greatest chefs, who distinguished himself between the 18th and 19th centuries in the noble courts of Naples. His preparation of magnificent banquets and luxurious dinners earned him the nickname the gallant cook or ‘Il Cuoco Galante,’ which later became the title of his recipe book. He was the first cook to write about Mediterranean cuisine and the first to extol the great regional Italian food virtues.


At this eatery, you will find the art of contemporary Indian cuisine. Qalamkarri is inspired by Kalamkari art (a type of hand-painted or block-printed cotton textile produced in southern India) and the word ‘Qalam’, which means pen. The two are combined to symbolise the crafting and artistic presentation of historic and modern India. The restaurant brings together the latest cooking techniques with India’s multi-faceted cuisine, offering a familiar yet innovative interpretation of one of the world’s great culinary experiences.

Panya Lounge

A patisserie with an Asian flair. ‘Panya’ is the Thai word for wisdom. It is a celebration of fresh flavours, balancing hot and cold and sweet and salty. It takes strong influence from the culinary delights of East Asia infused with Western patisserie techniques.


In addition to the restaurants, the hotel will be introducing Vertigo later in the year, a panoramic rooftop lounge overlooking the entire city. Its mesmerising views will offer an experience like no other with a creative beverages menu, mixology inventions, and a Mediterranean take on PanAsian cuisine – all in a lively setting with upbeat music.

From exotic Thai flavours and an authentic taste of Italy to destination dining, at Banyan Tree Doha At La Cigale Mushaireb guests are invited to embark on a unique gastronomic experience.

At the helm of that culinary journey is Executive Chef Emmanouil Adam, who is the backbone of this distinctive and ambitious destination along with his talented team. With extensive global experience in some of the world’s leading five-star hotels, Chef Emmanouil is a culinary veteran who specialises in European, Asian and international gourmet cuisines. “We’re very excited to bring new additions to the incredible gastronomic scene of Doha,” says Chef Emmanouil. “Our guests can expect extraordinary experiences, delivered in an inviting ambience.
