Dinner Buffet: Sridan – Shangri-La Hotel, Doha 

Sridan - Shangri-La Hotel Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Located at the 2nd level of one of the newest hotels in Qatar, it’s not hard to see why Sridan is making a buzz in the Qatar foodie circle. Never been a fan of buffets as I can barely taste all of the food but hey, 2016 is a good year to start soemthing new and this restaurant was a good choice.

Decorated with a lavish Arabic Decor, the restaurant gives you that feeling comfort and coziness. We were warmly greeted by maître and since it was our first time to visit, she courteously took her time to give us a tour of the restaurant. They offer international flavors like Asian, Moroccan, Japanese; and the standard live cooking station with steaks, fishes, seafood, and the dessert and beverage stations.

Food review

Here are some of the foods that we have eaten:


Seafood rice noodles in duck broth (awesome!)


Chicken noodle soup (great!)


Steak from the live cooking station (meh, inconsistent doneness with a burnt taste)


Clockwise: Lotus buns (meh), man tao (okay), har gow (really good), chicken siomai (good)


Various desserts


Chocolate mousse


Overall, the food varieties were a collection of hits and misses. I would say that the grilling, Moroccan and Asian stations (especially the soups) were very good. The seafood selection was good as well. The sushi, astipasti and salad stations were just mediocre.

The desserts were good, too although the selection was small. The macarons and meringues looked really delectable, too bad they’re displays only.


no, the meringues and macarons are not included in the spread, displays only. hmp!


Coffee mousse


Customer Service Review

The staff were very, very attentive and helpful when it comes to explaining the food serving. They are also very observant, it they see even a slight hesitation in your actions they will immediately come to your aid. I love them already.


The dinner buffet was QR 185(!) per person. We paid about a total of QR500++ including 2 glasses of wine and a bottle of water.



Shangri-La is located right beside City Center, eastside. Sridan is at Level 2.
