When you walk through to the grand lobby at Grand Hyatt Doha, you are instantly entranced by the seasonal decor and red carpet walkway dotted with Ramadan lanterns.
The Grand Hyatt’s Ramadanak Tent is spread across Al Maha Lobby and Majlis, which provides adifferent ambience depending on what you are looking for. In Majlis there is an Arabian-tent mood with decorative elements including traditional tent ties.
It is suited perfectly for larger gatherings with friends and families (VIP booths are available). While the Al Maha Lobby is an Arabian zen hangout for suhour, with its classical look and live music in the evening.
Grand Hyatt Doha Ramadanak Tent
It’s all about the embracing the spirit of Arabia – wherever you look you will see touches of traditional detailing, from the ornate brassware to the brightly decorative mezze platters.
Within Majlis you will find the extensive buffet which features a range of international and regional dishes: salads; hot and cold mezze; breads; cheese; carvery; grills; and many more dishes. Standouts included the ribeye beef, and a perfectly cooked ouzi with crunchy cashew nuts providing a lovely contrast to the tender lamb meat.
Diners are spoiled with three different stations offering starters, from salads, seafood dishes, and traditional Middle Eastern dishes. The cold mezze particularly stood out with its fresh plating and vibrant flavours.
Highlights included a perfectly tangy and spicy Pad Thai salad (which is to be expected coming from the kitchens of Grand Hyatt’s Thai restaurant, Isaan).
The main buffet area showcased Middle Eastern dishes but there was enough variety from other regions such as Indian curries like Aloo Mattar and International items such as baked salmon. Highlights included a creamy chicken dish and a hefty and unique Seafood Lasagna.
But, it is the live grill station that deserves your undivided attention. The grill masters can be found hard at work in the Majlis open kitchen, preparing kebabs, shish tawouk, and shawarma – deliciously juicy and cooked perfectly.
The desserts can be found spread across the back of the restaurant, where there is a good mix of traditional and continental desserts. There is also a live crepe station, with chocolate fountain and ice cream – enough variety to keep everyone happy. Standouts include a richly decadent mud cake, crisp chocolate eclairs, and the pistachio ice cream.
