Texas de Brazil recently opened its first outpost in Qatar, at the Mall of Qatar in Doha. 

The 551-square-meter Brazilian-style steakhouse features themed décor, an indoor dining area that seats 52 and a terrace that seats up to 104 guests. It is the chain’s 12th international location and 63rd restaurant overall. 

"We're excited to once again partner with Gourmet Gulf and open our first restaurant in Qatar," says Salim Asrawi, president of Texas de Brazil. "Mall of Qatar is the region's favorite destination for shopping, entertainment and dining, making it the perfect location to introduce our unique Brazilian churrascaria dining experience to the residents of Qatar and visitors alike."

"Following Texas de Brazil's success in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, we are thrilled to now open in Doha, Qatar which is one of the most dynamic and growing cities in the region. The hospitality industry in Qatar is thriving and there is growing demand for best-in-class international restaurants,” says Sami Daud, executive chairman of Gourmet Gulf.

The restaurant's menu combines the cuisine of Southern Brazil with the spirit of Texas. At each table, Gauchos carve an array of grilled beef, lamb, prawns, chicken and sausage, as directed by the guests' red and green disks that indicate when to bring more meat or when a break is needed. The steakhouse also offers an elaborate salad area, decorated by large tropical flowers and featuring over 50-fresh items, such as imported cheeses, charcuterie, roasted vegetables and lobster bisque.
