The St. Regis Doha, The Finest Address in Qatar, is honoured to announce that Al Sultan Brahim has been awarded the best Lebanese restaurant in the region, and Hakkasan as best Chinese restaurant in the region at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2017 ceremony held in Hanoi, Vietnam on 22 July.

The World Luxury Restaurant Awards inspire excellence and ignite healthy competition in the luxury restaurant industry. Voting is based on the food experience as a whole, combined with aspects of service excellence, presentation, quality and menu choices. Votes are predominantly cast by guests, but also by industry professionals that approve and support the nominated establishments.


The original Al Sultan Brahim restaurant was founded in 1968 in Jnah, on the coastline of Beirut by three El-Ramy brothers. Visitors to Al Sultan Brahim at The St. Regis Doha can savour legendary Lebanese cuisine prepared by Chef Wael Jaafar, who trained with the master team at Jnah. There is also a selection of Lebanese beverages, which can be taken on the terrace with traditional shisha and hot and cold mezze. A private dining room for ten people provides privacy for intimate groups and celebrations.

Hakkasan Doha offers guests a world-class culinary experience, setting the bar high in the Middle Eastern culinary scene.  Overseen by Head Chef Lai Min Wei, the menu is a modern interpretation of authentic Cantonese cuisine, using the finest ingredients and expert techniques to create timeless yet innovative signature dishes as well as those created specifically for the Doha location. Guests can choose to dine in the elegant restaurant, on the terrace or in the Ling Ling Lounge, whilst the bar serves an extensive array of wines, cocktails and small eats.

Tareq Derbas, General Manager of The St. Regis Doha, said:

We are extremely proud to have received these two prestigious awards. We are pleased that two of our venues at The Finest Address continue to be internationally recognised as a benchmark in the food and beverage sector and we will continue to build on the success that we have achieved.’
