Situated within the world-class Doha Sports City, inside the stunning Mövenpick Hotel Al Aziziyah Doha, you’ll find Blue Restaurant which offers international delights from Premium Western steaks to Oriental sushi. Every Wednesday night, Blue runs a Sushi night promotion. Is it worth trying out? Let me show you our first visit to this hotel. Here’s another entry to Flights and Flavours‘ Sushi Showdown: Blue Restaurant.

How was it?
A pretty great deal for its price. The variety of maki rolls were good, the rice were seasoned well and in good ratio with its fillings. One of our few favorites, Unagi and Salmon, can be ordered as a sashimi. You don’t usually see that in a sushi buffet. Although it’s not as melt-in-your-mouth fresh as the ones we have tried, but still it was ok. Besides sushi, they also serve soup, salads, and desserts. So you get more than what you pay for.
The staff provided a great service, looking after our needs and see if we need any assistance. Although we noticed that the chef was working alone in making all the sushi. It would be better if he has someone with him, especially when the place is packed as the flow was slow in refilling in their sushi boats.
Their outdoor patio is quite a nice place to have dinner too, great view and especially the weather is getting better. 😉
