Sheraton Grand Doha Launches Garden Brunch

If you’ve been in the Gulf for a while now, you’ll know that the change of season is a big deal. You don’t need that infamous Game of Thrones quote to say “Winter is Coming” as more and more al fresco dining options are reopening in Doha. Adding to the list is the iconic Sheraton Grand Doha Resort and Convention Center with its new Garden Brunch launch.

Sheraton Grand Doha is one of the city’s historical landmarks being the oldest hotel in Qatar dating back to 1979. As the winter season officially kicks in, the hotel is opening its doors garden to all foodies and families who would like to enjoy an outdoor dining experience like no other.

Sheraton Grand Doha Garden Brunch

Having been to a number of brunches in Doha, it is getting harder to differentiate what sets one from the other. All of them offers an impressive international buffet spread, some activities here and there, and a novelty theme that are sometimes borderline gimmicky.

For Sheraton, they decided to keep it simple: Garden Brunch. The hotel’s garden hosts this weekly brunch with lush green background and overlooking the pristine beach. Compared to other brunches, the buffet spread is just right. It is right smack in the middle of modest and lavish. From salad and appetizers, grilled items, fresh seafood, to live cooking station, sushi station, hot dishes, and even a generous camel ouzi (which I only get to see often during Ramadan), to dessert station, they got it covered.

And these cake pops?

I particularly enjoyed the spinach and ricotta lasagna which is divine; the red snapper was just tender and retains its texture, and the roast beef is succulent and fork-tender, you definitely have to try. I was too busy eating, I forgot to snap a proper photo. Unfortunately, I have to settle for Instastory footage.

I won’t tell which round was this but here are my top picks: Spinach and Ricotta Lasagna, Red Snapper, and Roasted Beef.

The live entertainment keeps the atmosphere laid back with an eclectic repertoire of jazz and blues music.

Impressions

Overall, the brunch looks very promising. While it was inevitably still warm when I visited, I definitely see myself going back in the coming weeks once the weather becomes more garden brunch friendlier. I like the concept and overall look and feel of the brunch. I’m a person who would like to have a more relaxed brunch, no fuss, no frills.

Price-wise, it is considerably pricey given that other brunches in town with similar buffet spread would cost less. Nothing much can be said about the quality and taste because they are of standard. Perhaps a little more ice on the seafood station would be great to maintain the required temperature (especially with how notorious Doha heat is), but other than that, everything else was executed pretty well.

If you’re looking for a great al-fresco dining experience (music, laid back ambiance, great selection of food, kid-friendly) in Doha done right, then the price difference would make it worth the tag.

Are you ready for more al fresco dining options this coming winter? Are you up for the Garden Brunch experience?
