Feel closer to the heartbeat of Qatar’s heritage
Jiwan is located on the fourth floor of the National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) and is an essential chapter in the museum’s storytelling experience. Design works in harmony with the menu to give you a taste of Qatar’s nature and rich traditions linked to activities by the sea. The result is a calming, comfortable environment to enjoy the essence of Qatar.
Enjoy a modern homage to local ingredients and flavours
Jiwan’s contemporary Qatari menu has been carefully curated to take us back to the country’s roots. Seasonal sharing dishes pay homage to indigenous ingredients. Ancient Bedouin elemental cooking techniques —fire, water, air, and earth — are used to transform textures and familiar flavours. The result is a celebration of Qatar’s future culinary identity. Simple yet sophisticated. Novel yet comfortingly nostalgic.
