Max you can do is to drive to souq waqif, have dinner and come back. Much better than sitting in Airport

<<, approx how long will it take and taxi costs?>>

Takes around 15 mins from Airport, 1745 is an rush hour time on that road during weekdays (Sun-Thursday), add another 5 mins max.

To souq from Airport around 30-35 including airport surcharge, way back to airport 15 to 20 riyal.

<<Can you suggest any good place/must have dish we should try at souq wakif?>>

Difficult to answer as there are so many good places in Souq, below are couple of them which are unique

Bandar Aden Restaurant not too expensive great Yemani food, sit in "Majlis" area with floor seating.

Al Jasra Traditional Food, for some local Qatari food.
