“Hot pot dinner on Friday evening”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

The quality of food and the service was superb - first time trying waygu beef for hot pot and it was absolutely spot on! Portion was very small on the price that we have paid so perhaps this could be looked at.

Dear Rose Ting,

thank you for visiting Hwang Restaurant and trying our signature dish the Shabu-Shabu. We are pleased that you enjoyed it and have taken the time to write a good review about it. Concerning the pricing for the Wagyu we will gladly look into the price structure, but also the Wagyu we order for the restaurants is not frozen but chilled and therefore has quite an price tag to it. We hope to see you back soon for some more Shabu-Shabu
With Best Regards the Hwang Restaurant Team @ the InterContinental Doha the City

“Best of Asia ”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

Try the wasabi prawns. The food, flavors, and staff are excellent. Great place for a group. The menu mixes the best of Asia you can really appreciate. The dishes are served perfectly each time. Better than some of the other more expensive restaurants in town.

“Great new concept... Loving it... Will be back!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Loved my dinner at the new restaurant of the new InterContinental Doha The City!
Not one of those overpriced 5* Noodle Houses in the Middle East which take their justification for existence from the fact that they can serve alcohol.
The menu is extensive, the choices - and so is the decoration of the place - from all over Asia and it seems that concept also travels with the friendly service team.
Food came fast, fresh and tasty... a must-go-back experience.

“Great choice for a good meal”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I had the wasabi prawns for a starter, and the spicy wagyu beef for a main course. I asked the server what she recommended and she was quick and professional with a suggestion.

The wasabi prawns were fried, covered in a great sauce that was sweet but with the right kick of wasabi. Portion size was perfect. The wagyu beef was as to be expected: tender, prepared perfectly (read: not overcooked) and the sauce was pleasantly hot--not "spicy" mild that requires extra chili.

Drinks are a little steep, but otherwise prices are appropriate.

Service was good too--right on time, not too prompt (not trying to usher you out), enough time to enjoy the food. Whether staying at the Intercont or somewhere else, I'd recommend this restaurant.

Located in the Intercontinental City this is an excellent restaurant with a very nice atmosphere. The menu has a good choice of the various countries. As a starter I suggest the prawns.
