Iftar Buffet – Horizon Manor Hotel

As a customer, all I aim is at service, food, hospitality, price and if all this blends with location even – I think that’s wonderful then! Having said that, Sarangi, the restaurant that hosted the iftar in the hotel, was bubbling with customers on a weekday which was unexpected to be honest. It is always a pleasant experience though to have people around you (that’s the whole idea most of the times).

The hotel is centrally located which gives traffic a back seat at all times and with valet parking who would complain! We were warmly welcomed and escorted to the restaurant at the Mezzanine floor. As we entered, a good selection of dates and dried apricots with kahwa (Arabic coffee) waited at the central porch with a neighboring counter offering Ramadan drinks.

Not being able to figure out offerings of all ranges earlier, I came up with my own customized post listing various Iftars and Suhoors.

My first Iftar buffet this year was Flying Carpet at The Torch Doha – and, I can say, without a doubt, what a start!
The Torch, as it popularly is, one of the proud structures in Doha has made a special place amidst the residents. Their hospitality and service, too, stands out as their edifice.
