Restaurants by michelin starred chefs qatar

Michelin stars are prestigious accolades that some of the best restaurants receive. The Michelin star is awarded to restaurants that exhibit incredible cooking in their dishes. Restaurants can be given one to three stars depending on their excellence.

As of writing, there are currently 15,989 Michelin-starred restaurants in the world. Qatar currently has no Michelin-starred restaurants as they can only be given a Michelin star once a Michelin Guide is published within their region or area. With that said, Doha is yet to be graced with its own Michelin Guide.

However, several chefs with Michelin-starred restaurants have their restaurants in Qatar. In this list, the (ILQ) team has put up some restaurants by them.

Read below to know more!
