Best brunches in Doha?

Torque
By Torque

Hello peeps!

Coming from Dubai with the big brunch culture & having a few friends there...., just wondering where is the best places for brunches & how to meet new people here!

The latter may seem a bit of a dumb comment, but I'm pretty new in Doha & like happy fun people, so there's got to be good places to meet those of that ilk...?!

TIA

don't go to Intercon.. it sucks.. this "5 stars" hotel is just getting worse and worse day by day... no matter that eventually they have changed their ripped off furniture in the lobby.. they are still on the MOTEL level by their nature… food is baaaad, leave alone service…

i was pleasantly surprised by Marriott though... huge selection of food, and service was good enough...

Marriott is generally the most popular since drinks are included in the price - not just sparkling wine either.

Turk, did that a couple of weeks back - very good value, especially as all had at least 2 bottles each, but a little disappointed in the food :o(

Last week I went along to the Marriot for brunch & had a brilliant time, lots of fantastic food & great people!

Also thought it terrific value, can't recommend it enough!

Only one down-side, on leaving no taxi's were available, only the hotel limo's who were charging outrageous prices because they've got new Mercs....

In my book, that did sour the experience a little as it was as good as extortion!!

Tallg & Mercia, thanks for the feedback!

Marriott does sound pretty good, went there the other night, great choice of food....., never had the tum to try sushi, one day, one day!!!

Will check before I post next time, felt a bit of a Homer moment coming on then.....DOH!!

By all accounts it has to be the Friday Brunch at the Marriott. All the restaurants are open and you can mix and match for just over QR200. So you can have sushi from asia live to start, then a curry, then tex mex etc includes all bubbly, wine and beer. Gotta be good!!
