As we only have a couple of months of 2015 left I looked through The Entertainer to see which vouchers we hadn’t yet used and came across ‘ buy one get one free’ buffet for The Square at the Intercontinental City Hotel. We were due to go out with friends so decided to take advantage of the offer on Saturday lunchtime, booking a table via Facebook is always very easy; they answer queries and take reservations very promptly. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor and although it doesn’t have much of a view it is nicely designed, broken up into several small areas and is quite light and spacious. The buffet is spread across 2 large rooms with a live cooking station serving kebabs and koftas, hot food such as pastas and curries, a fresh pizza bar and then another section with salads, breads, cheeses and dessert
The Entertainer voucher is for food only so we ordered drinks then went up to choose from an array of food. We all agreed there was a good choice and it was nice to select your own items to be cooked just for you. As a group of 4 we particularly enjoyed the sushi, variety of salads and the fish curry. Desserts, as I find often in Qatar, looked lovely but didn’t taste as good as they looked – again the cheesecake was more like mousse ( my search for a good cheesecake continues…) however, the chocolate mousse and red velvet cake were delicious.
Overall the cost for 4 people including 4 lunch buffets, 5 beers, 1 cocktail, 2 large bottles of water and a tip was 600QR which is a very good value for money. We will defiantly go back, we still have 2 vouchers to use and as we pretty much live next door its very convenient!
*Please note The Entertainer voucher is food only and cannot be used for Friday brunch.
