Al Rayyan Life Guide

About Al Rayyan

Home to Mall of Qatar, one of Qatars largest, and some say best, shopping malls with a wide variety of brands, restaurants, and cafes. Of course, you’ll find Carrfour here for all your grocery needs, but also an Oasis, surrounded by the mall’s finest dining experiences. On those hot summer days, head to Zekreet Beach with an all-terrain vehicle for serenity and peaceful family fun. Film City is another great find in Al Rayyan, a movie set built back in 2000 for a Qatari soap opera called ‘Ayal Al Theeb’. Film City is an adventure everyone can enjoy.

Al Mosak Diet & Fitness Food

What we love about this Al Rayyan restaurant is what it stands for. Qatar has been a great supporter of fitness and health – Qatar National Sports Day is a great example, not to mention FIFA 2022. Al Mosak fits right in with a health conscious menu and great taste.

Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar

This American, Vegan Friendly Cafe is another great example of good healthy food in Qatar – not all the way healthy, but definitely friendly! Everything you order will be fresh and delicious, with great service. The decor is a mixture of classic and glamorous with comfy couches and very creative food presentation.
