Grand Heritage Doha Hotel and Spa’s popular Turkish restaurant, Agora, has been named as the Best MENA Category by Time Out Doha Restaurants Awards 2014, which recognizes the best restaurants in Doha. The restaurant was chosen over 6 other nominees for the category, and was judged based on the quality of food, service, value for money, and atmosphere among other things.

The Time Out Doha Restaurant Awards is one of Qatar’s highly anticipated events of the year. The judges name the award winners after spending the year eating at Doha’s restaurants. Time Out reviews the restaurants independently and pays for all its own review meals.

Agora is also still ranked as “Number One” since November 2013 amongst 348 other restaurants in Qatar by Trip Advisor.
