Playstation Cafeteria – Doha Corniche 

Overall Review

“Don’t judge a book by its cover” is the first thing that’ll come to mind when you see the place for the first time. Given that it’s in a dark area, the outside is also nondescript and the inside’s interior is dreary. It’s really not a place you would think that would serve good food, right? Wrong! 

The food, oh the food that they serve makes up for what the restaurant lacks in aesthetic features. It’s good enough to make you forget the place and focus in your eating experience. 

We ordered a seafood hotpot, crispy chicken, crispy shrimp, and beef dumplings. It may not sound much but man, it was a lot. I mean, a looot. There were 4 of us and we didn’t even get to finish them! The food was fresh, serving size is really big and the hotpot was amazing. I mean, the quality of their food is that of mid-class restaurants. I really can’t endorse this restaurant enough. Like if you’re looking for a place where you can bring 10 voraciously hungry people without breaking the bank, this is the place to be. And they feed stray cats who are hanging out in front of the restaurant (not that it’s related to anything but I love cats). 

A feast for only QR280

Happiness a.k.a. crispy chicken


Beef dumpling and crispy shrimp


So, if you find yourself craving for Chinese food and P.F. Chang’s is being its usual crowded self or splurging at Hakkasan is not an option during mid-month, then I would recommend Playstation Cafeteria. Weird name, but the best Chinese food that you can get your money’s worth and more.

Price Review

QR 40 per person (approx.). Again, mind you they have big servings.



Note: here’s a map just in case you’re interested
