Moroccan, Kebabs and Shawarmas are plentiful in Doha and the Middle East. Damasca One is one that specializes in Syrian food, and is right at home situated in the oldest market of Doha; Souq Waqif. Respecting and sharing the old traditions of the Market, Damasca One follows an understated design, with a semi-outdoor rooftop.

Its menu follows the typical Middle eastern route, Moutabbel, Houmous and Kebabs, as well as more unique dishes like Oriental Sausage.

Damasca One maybe one of the go-to spots for locals when it comes to Tea, Shakes and Sheesha , where they spend the evening chatting away! Right in the center of the Souq/Market and onlooking toward marketplace, it is the perfect spot for tourists and gatherings alike!
