Chili’s – Doha

There’s a reason you pick Chili’s as your choice of fast casual out of the many American competition in the region!
They are more of a quiet setup, not very noisy, moderately formal interiors and staff and their food pictures are actually what is served to you. Yes, it is a bit high in price comparatively. But what you get as an experience on the whole is flavoursome, sinful yet satisfying food.

As soon as we entered, we were warmly welcomed by the friendly staff. Assuming we could use our Entertainer vouchers, we presented that in the beginning itself but were disappointed that it could be used only in 3 branches of the country and City Centre Mall branch wasn’t on the list. However, we continued to our table and below is what we ordered:

Outback Steakhouse – Doha

‘No rules, just right!’ That’s what Outback – an Australian themed steakhouse restaurant proudly frames their tag line.

What they get right:
– Their modern ambience with a spacious area complimenting the larger than life attitude of the region.
– The perfect location being – The Lagoona Mall.
– Friendly Staff that are very good with keeping the kids busy while you enjoy your meal.

Well, what isn’t right or let’s say didn’t work well for us was the steaks – the prime reason we visited them.

We started off with a nice freshly baked bread with butter. I like the way it was served to us – a knife inserted in the middle of the bread presented on a wooden board.

Our stomachs were growling on this evening for food and what better to opt for than juicy tender filling steaks. Having heard mixed reviews about Outback, we still gave it a shot to see for ourselves their offerings.

The Noodle House – Doha

In my quest of a decent Chinese place, I’ve often seen The Noodle House. Their logo had tempted me on numerous occasions but somehow I always gave it a miss. Giving it a shot this time – courtesy to my Entertainer voucher, we dedicated a weekend evening to South East Asian cuisine. The restaurant reminds me of a setup like one of the regular joints I visited in Kuwait (homeland).

Drafted out menu where you tick your selection, open kitchen and the whole feel of the interior got me homesick. Though I had like to mention the staff wasn’t as friendly and the location of the restaurant itself felt like a block misplaced in the hallway of the City Centre Mall. People moving up and down from the elevator could see right through your dining experience (not a fan of being eyed while eating, are you?).
