In anticipation of the unveiling of Nobu Doha at the Four Seasons hotel, we look at some of our favourite Japanese dishes in the city, and have an interview with the man himself.

Yen Sushi Bar

Address: Open daily 11.30am-midnight. La Cigale Hotel, 60 Suhaim Bin Hamad Street, C Ring Road (4428 8698).

The restaurant: Located on the Lobby level of La Cigale Hotel, Yen Sushi Bar is a modern Japanese venue designed in a contemporary style with fiber optic lighting, rice paper walls, a revolving belt and handmade stools. Yen can seat up to 30 guests and it serves a wide array of freshly-made sushi and sashimi, presented on a rotating belt on colour-coded plates, or guests can choose from a selection on the à la carte menu. Sushi lovers can experience one of the star rolls ‘La Cigale Salmon Wrap with Avocado,’ where the chef has recently added some strawberries to it.

Chef’s signature dish: The chefs are constantly adding their touches to the dishes. One of the signature rolls is “La Cigale Crispy,” where they use special ingredients such as the tempura flakes, crab with special Japanese sauce, sesame seeds and flying fish caviar on top. People love it for its crunchy and unique taste.

Best of the rest: Yen Sushi Bar also brings the essence of Japan with a wide variety of rolls, such as the “Dragon Roll,” which consists of crab salad wrapped with eel, avocado, crab and the chef’s special sauce, in addition to the “salmon seaweed,” with its special ingredients, toppings and sauces.

What about Sushi Minto on Salwa Road?
I think you have missed that one. It has a very nice atmosphere, friendly staff and great food.
Thank you
