Marhaba interviews Chef Mohammed Ashfaque Quresh about Qureshi Bukhara’s debut in Qatar.

Welcome to Qatar! Tell us why you chose Qatar as the next step in your culinary career and how it will further enrich your career.

It’s great to be in Qatar. After working in the UAE and Oman, Qatar was a logical choice because of its diverse population, including many locals, Indians, and Europeans who love Indian cuisine. This will give me a chance to share my passion for cooking with a wider audience and learn from the rich culinary culture here.

What intrigued Qureshi Bukhara to join Dusit Hotel & Suites Doha?

The main reason was the visionary approach of the Al Majed group’s Chairman, which made the collaboration between Qureshi Bukhara and Dusit an exciting opportunity.

We offer a curated menu where every dish is a signature creation. You can expect exceptional Kebabs, Curries, and Biryanis. Some must-try dishes include Raan Sikandari, Dal Qureshi, Burrah Kebab, Tandoori Chicken, Family Naan, and our special Biryanis.
