Dinner Buffet: Sridan – Shangri-La Hotel, Doha 

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:               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. …

Breakfast Buffet – Students’ Canteen in Education City

This review is going to be a short one as the canteen and it’s food are straight -on.  Choices are quite limited but hey, for QR 15, it’s a lot already and the food is decent for its price. They have the usual breakfast items:     eggs, sausage and salad but you can also find fried rice ( for my fellow Asians who are used to have it for breakfast), roasted potatoes and carrots, pancakes, breads, sticky bread rolls, fruits and hot and cold beverages.     The canteen is just past Weil Cornell University, I think it’s near the Female Student Housing. But I heard that there’s another canteen just near the Male Student Housing, too. Definitely going back to try their QR 28 lunch buffet. I was told that they serve a wide variety for food.

Yee Hwa Sunday Night Sushi Buffet Edition – Al Kinana, Al Nasr

Overall Review Yee Hwa is one of my favorite restaurants in Doha. It’s like the open secret of quality but affordable Japanese and Korean food. And boy, they do know their stuff. Two of their biggest sellers are the Sunday Night Sushi Buffet and Monday and Wednesday Korean BBQ Grill, starts from 6PM til 11PM.  Mr. QE and I decided (more like I decided and Mr. QE conceded) to go straight there after work. Luckily, we came in early and there were seats readily available. They served us with the usual Korean “appetizers” (not sure what they’re all called but they were yummy).  Then came the sushi buffet menu. Granted that they’re not offering all their sushi variety in this menu but this is like the nth time that I tried it and I’d still say that it’s more than enough. The sushi rolls, nigiri and sashimi are all made upon order which is nice as you know they are fresh. Make no mistake, even if it’s a buffet they still maintain a good quality …
