The month of October is always a good one for my husband and I. We usually have lots to celebrate around this time of the year and what better place to celebrate one such special occasion than at the iconic Nobu, Doha. We heard the Summer Omakase Menu was extended until the 15th of October and having missed it the previous month we decided to jump at the offer before if was too late.
The 4 course meal @ 300 QAR pp is absolutely price on point for the renowned restaurant that usually demands forfeiting a couple of dining occasions in order to enjoy a great meal at the establishment.
What’s on offer?
Nobu Wagyu Pulled Beef Nori Bao (Moist and juicy this ones an absolute winner)
Salmon Sashimi Salad with Matsuhisa Dressing (nothing beats a fresh salmon sashimi)
Shrimp Tempura Cut Roll and Hokkigai Sushi
Whole Mediterranean Sea Bass with Shiso Salsa (Flavorful meaty pieces of Seabass cooked to perfection)
Warm Fruit Crumble ( This is honestly one of the best crumbles I’ve ever eaten)
Nobu Cheesecake (Cotton like – light and fluffy cheesecake that wasn’t sweet and well balanced with raspberry sorbet)
Try and book a table indoors, the atmosphere is definitely much better. Exterior of the restaurant hasn’t been given much TLC and ends up being pretty drab apart from the view of course. Also Doha’s temperature or fluctuating humidity made it a bit of an uncomfortable dining experience outside. My main concern however was the service. Our sushi and main course came to the table the same time, forcing us to gulp down the sushi and move onto the main before it was cold. We didn’t end up actually enjoying the sushi course because of the unnecessary rush! Seemed like service was a bit uncoordinated due to miscommunication from our server to kitchen. We were very disappointed with this particular situation as obviously service expectation were running at its highest given dining at a restaurant like Nobu.
Overall a great deal and delicious food. The menu offers a choice for all sorts of diners even the ones living off greens and veggies 😛
