Claque-ing at Teatro Business Lunch

Fresh from their victory at FACT Dining Awards 2017 being named as Best International Restaurant, Teatro recently launched a new business lunch menu and I was invited to give it a try. Since I’ve been having a growing fascination to business lunches lately, I know I’ll be in for a treat. I mean, what is not to like about it? Great food (usually a 3-course meal) at a very reasonable price. They say a good conversation is best done over good food. Whether you are looking for a place for your next business meeting, catching up with friends over lunch during manic weekdays, or just a place to dine without spending a fortune, Teatro promises to give you the fix. Every business (even monkey business) is a serious business after all.

The neon signage is hard to miss.

Now, let’s talk about the star of the show. What are being offered?

I was handed a 3-course menu cleverly called “Act 1, 2 and Finale” in true theater fashion. The menu looks promising and honestly, I wish I went with a friend so we can try other dishes. Yes, I went for business lunch (this time) alone.

Teatro’s Business Lunch Menu

I have to give credit to the staff who did an amazing job that day. It didn’t take long for my orders to arrive and Melvin (the staff who assisted during my visit) keeps an eye for my every need (including all the questions about my food).

While I was reviewing my earlier interior shots, I was served with these savory Prawn Crackers and a special dipping sauce.

Act 1

For Act 1, I continued the Asian flare after the crackers and decided to have these crispy California rolls.

As you might have known by now, I’m a huge sushi fan and these rolls won’t fail you. If this is an indication, I should definitely be back for their sushi night soon.Teatro Business Lunch City Center Rotana Doha Sushi

Act 2

For Act 2, I decided to go Italian and asked for Pizza Diavola.

Pizza Diavola

Pizza Diavola (or literally translated as Devil’s Pizza) is a mild to spicy pizza which I personally prefer. The right amount of heat kicks in and blends well with the herbs bringing that deep rustic flavor. I have to say, the serving size is more than enough for a single person; it should be shared.

Diavola aftermath. It is meant to be shared.


And for the Grand Finale, I stayed Italian and ordered Coconut Gelato.

Coconut Gelato

The crunchy toasted coconut and the sweet biscotti brings sharp contrast in texture to the smooth and creamy gelato.

Props to the presentation and those toasted coconut flakes, the smooth cream, and hints of refreshing coconut surely ended my whole dining experience on a sweet note. I look forward to an encore.


Teatro business lunch is available Sundays-Thursdays from 12:30 to 3:00 PM. Reasonably priced at QAR95 (inclusive of water or soft beverage), you now have one more reason to seal that all important deal in real Teatro style.
