Sometimes home delivery can be a bit hit and miss in Doha, our ‘go to’ places for delivery are Nandos, Chilis, Royal Istanbul and The Chippy. However, we fancied Chinese food and a quick Talabat search led us to The Rice and The Noodle located at Souk Waqif. The menu offers a range of soups, appetisers, noodle and rice dishes plus seafood, chicken, beef and vegetables ( they also have a sushi section which we didn’t try). Greg placed our order via Talabat and they messaged him to whatsapp our location. Our food arrived in about an hour which I thought was pretty good for a weekend evening, especially knowing they’d have to negotiate the corniche to get to us! Everything was well packaged and labelled. It was also warm so nothing needed reheating.
Our main dishes were good. The beef with oyster sauce (48QR) was tender and the sauce was rich but not too salty which often happens with Chinese food. The carrots and mushroom weren’t overcooked and there was a good proportion of ingredients to sauce.
I’m glad we ordered the vegetables in garlic sauce (23QR) a mix of babycorn, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage they were all fresh and crunchy providing a nice contest when eaten with the other dishes and the egg fried rice (14QR). I think next time we order we’d get 2 portions of rice as one wasn’t really enough for 2 people to share.
Our delivery cost 162QR which I felt was good value for the delivery time, quality of the food and portion size. We also recieved a complimentary fruit salad which was a nice touch – there was enough to keep us grazing all night! I liked the fact that nothing was too greasy and it wasn’t swimming in oil, each dish was tasty but not too sickly or sweet. I would definitely order from here again and visit their restaurant in the souk. Overall a thumbs up from us and another place to add to our ‘go to’ list for home delivery.
