“Best shrimp tempura I have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Since discovering Yee Hwa, we have had lunch every Saturday -- terrific food, great service and not too pricy. The sushi is fresh and imaginative, and the selection is enormous. I love the seaweed salad (wakame) and the shrimp tempura is outstanding.

“Best Korean restaurant in Doha...affordable too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The place was recommended by a friend when our first choice of restaurant was full but I was thankful that it did happen.

This is the best Korean restaurant in Doha so because it capture the taste of real Korean cuisine and is affordable. I recommend you try the grilled menu's specially the chicken. Wrap it with lettuce and soybean sauce and its mouth-watering good.

I had been to South Korea so many times and had a taste of Korean cuisine, this remarkably come near on Seoul taste.

The only problem is the lack of parking space and the table arrangement. It was arranged in a way you legs can't stretch due to table and would end up sitting awkwardly sideways.

But amidst those observations, I still return to Yee Hwa for a sumptuous Korean meal.

Dear Kitkat_UAE,

Thank you for positive review of Yee Hwa.

We are delighted that you enjoyed our food as much as we enjoy serving it.

Our chef is from South Korea with over 30 years experience in many different fine dining Korean restaurants in Seoul.

With regards to the leg space, this is due to the fact that our grill exhaust system is under the table and therefore a small sacrifice in the leg space.

We hope to serve you again very soon.

sincerely yours,

Seung Moon

“Tip: Wear loose clothing. :D”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

We had our dinner there last Wednesday, BBQ night. I was annoyed at first because of a misleading advertisement in their FB page. I thought all meat choices were applicable in their Eat all you can promo. But there were only two sets to choose from! But when they served the food, there were plenty of good quality meat to choose from in a set. It was a great korean BBQ experience. Would definitely come back. Service was good.

The only downside was, it was very warm inside their restaurant and the waiter informed us that one of their airconditioning unit was not working.

BBQ nights during Mondays and Wednesdays.
Would cost you 123QR/ head excluding drinks.
All in all, I consider it as one of the best Korean Restaurants in Qatar. We literally loosened our belts when we went home. LOL.

Dear LeeStark,

First of all please accept my apologies if you thought our FB page was misleading. We do try and change the ALL you can eat BBQ night menu regularly so that our customers will have variety. Please check our FB page regularly for our next update to our BBQ menu.

With regards to the A/c problem we are working day and night with the building maintenance to find the exact problem with the cool air. We hope to have this solved within the next couple of days.

Thank you for dining with us at Yee Hwa and we look forward to serving you again very soon.

sincererly yours,

“Korean cuisine experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Had an amazing 1st experience of Korean food here. Nice ambience & ample seating. Location is good. Parking has to be in the streets around it.
Menu is massive with so many things in it to keep going there to try.
We had the shrimp dumplings & heart & Seoul sushi rolls which were amazing. The price is good or 8 pieces of roll & my husband dislikes sushi but he actually ate this one coz it was tasty.
We ordered a beef brisket as main for Korean BBQ. It came with a lot of accompaniments & salads. The whole cooking experience was nice & I would go there again to try more food.
Bill for 2 with drinks was approx 240 riyals which is definitely not bad considering the quantity & quality.
Highly recommend this one...
