“Good value Friday Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Yesterday we did the Friday brunch and bearing in mind our party was quite large (20 people) the service was excellent. Its QAR333 for unlimited alcoholic house beverages or QAR222 for unlimited soft drinks, its from 12.30 until 3.30pm and the staff did come round before the end to see if we wanted any final drinks before the brunch finished.

There was a good range of sushi and seafood (the man on the sushi counter was very generous with his huge handful of salmon to the point we had to say that is too much). The indian curry station was made to order and my husband was very impressed when it came and delivered to his table and even the chef came over to ask how it was.

There was an icecream trolley - Movenpick which was just scrummy and a candy floss machine too.

The staff were very friendly and very efficient.

The beef was a bit rare for me (I think it was still mooing) but cannot fault the rest of the dishes. So must choice and variety that there was definitely something there for everyone. This is definitely one I will return to.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The first time I went to Mawasem was during last Ramadan for Iftar. I was absolutely amazed by everything. The restaurant is very well decorated and looks very nice. They have an indoor and outdoor seating area. The buffet was international with so many different varieties and the food was absolutely delicious! They serve alcohol but it's a non smoking area inside. If you are looking for good food, this is the place to go.

Felt they could have better range of food on display

However the place has very good vigor and ambience which infuses energy

Friendly staff

“Friday Brunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Although the display of the food was pleasent, the quality of the food itself was poor and a lot less than the standards one might expect from Hilton operated chain of restaurants. The Sushi was room temperature so it didn't taste as fresh, the cooked food tasted off, the bread collection was wide but most were hard. for the minimum amount of 60$ paid per person, you'd get much better quality of food in other 4 star or 5 star hotel brunches.
The live music band was a nice touch, though the genre of music and the songs they played weren't really suitable for brunch time background entertainment.
