We had dinner at the Hub restaurant one of the nights of our stay in Doha.
This brand new restaurant is situated in the new Ramada Encore Hotel.
It is only one k.m. from Souq Waqif, but if you want to come from the International Airport which is only 4 km. away you should take the exit from the arrival terminal on the C Ring road and drive for 400 meters till you reach intersection with an overhead bridge. You have to turn left on Ras Abu Aboud Street and drive straight for about 3.5 km till you see a green colored Woqod Petrol Station on your right. The Ramada is exactly behind the station with one way entry around the petrol station.

The Hub has a pleasant casual design and it seems it is the hotel’s hip, -a vibrant eating and meeting place ideal for an enjoyable lunch or dinner outing and also for business meetings and gatherings. It is situated on the first floor above the lobby. It might not have the luxury of other hotel restaurants but have in mind that the Ramada Encore is a small hotel in a contemporary style. Being centrally located it attracts businessmen as well and in fact there were several dining along next to us that night.

Service and presentation are impeccable and I noticed that everything was fresh with quality ingredients. Dishes were classic I can say but at the same time had an innovate twist.
Out of 4 different starters one was the Greek salad that cost Qr.38 and the Caesar’s at Qr.45, we tried the Oriental Mezzeh Platter that contained cold hummus, moutabel and fattoush with hot kebbeh served with cheese and spinach fatayer. (Qr,45) and we had the Avocado and Shrimps Cocktail for Qr.50. Both dishes were amazing, so delicious and so nicely presented that exceeded my expectations.

If you are after soups there are three kinds to choose from at the Hub. It is the Minestrone, the Cream of Chicken soup and the 18th Century French Onion Soup. All cost Qr. 38 and we tried the latter which was superb.

There are 7 different main course dishes and price varies. Chicken Tikka Massala and Stuffed Chicken Breast cost Qr 60 with the Grilled Beef Tenderloin the most expensive dish which is at Qr.95. There is the Arabic Mixed Grill for Qr.75 but I picked the Grilled Fish served with boiled potatoes, leek confit and lemon butter sauce. This costs Qr. 70. I have to admit that the fish was delicious, the presentation fine but the sliced potatoes quite hard. They needed to be softer to match with the fish.

My husband had the Stuffed Chicken Breast and although the chicken and sauce were really good again here the sautee potatoes that accompanied the dish were hard. Potatoes were what we left in both our plates but that does not matter that much.

We accompanied our dinner with fresh juice Qr.22 and a non alcoholic beer Qr. 20. Mind you no alcoholic drinks are served out here probably because it is a centrally located hotel.

Finally we come to desserts where we had 5 alternatives to choose from. It was the Crème Caramel and Fresh Fruit Salad for Qr.25 each but we could not resist the three others which were a challenge for us. They were really delicious and nicely presented again. The Oriental Sweet Plate has a fine selection of assorted Arabic desserts (baklava, kunafa, Macron and Basbousa) for Qr,30. I admit that I would have preferred them a bit softer but still they were delicious.

I am a person who is not after sweets or chocolate cakes but the Double Chocolate Walnut Brownie which my husband had was irresistible. It has a rich chocolate sauce and a vanilla ice cream on top. I had a bite or two and I loved it. This costs Qr. 25.
I left for the very last the one I liked most and I was happy that I have chosen it. I cannot find words to describe the Banana Split of the Hub! Go for it for sure.

The restaurant opens at 6.30 a.m and stays open till 11:00 pm
On offer there are different snacks, beverages and a la carte menu the day long.
Wi Fi is also free here.

People who wish to smoke have a separate area where they can do it while enjoying their lunch or dinner however I have to admit that we could feel some smell in the room even if we were sitting in the non smoking area.

Anyway, I highly recommend the Hub and I will definitely return if I ever visit Doha again. It was in all a nice outing in a trendy and lively atmosphere. Keep the good work up guys.
