Seasonal Tastes at The Westin Doha is known for offering one of the finest buffets in Qatar, and their latest offering, Seafood Night every Saturday, does not disappoint.

The ambience at the restaurant is elegant yet relaxed, making it an ideal spot for an evening out with family or friends. The Seafood Night starts at 6:30 pm, and we arrived early. As the evening progressed, tables filled up easily with groups.

Upon approaching the buffet, we took our time to explore all the offerings before selecting a plate. The sushi and sashimi section immediately caught our attention, boasting an impressive selection of fresh seafood delights such as peeled prawns, fresh oysters, black shell mussels, tiger prawns, and lobster tail. Adjacent to the sushi and sashimi area, we discovered Salmon Bellavista, which was quite interesting. Next to it was a corner dedicated to ceviche.

As we returned to our table, we noticed the chefs skillfully serving amuse-bouche scallops and prawns, which added an extra touch of elegance to the dining experience.

For extensive buffets like this, it’s always nice to pace oneself to enjoy most, if not all, of the dishes.

For salad enthusiasts, Seasonal Tastes provides a plethora of options to choose from, including a delectable lobster salad, refreshing pomelo salad served in a coconut shell, seafood salad, classic Caesar salad, roasted salmon salad, and a pasta salad featuring mussels and grilled octopus which kept me coming back to this corner.

If you fancy noodles alongside your seafood, the buffet also features a delectable stir-fried noodle dish with prawns and mushrooms, adding an Asian twist to the culinary journey.

Meat enthusiasts need not worry, as Seasonal Tastes caters to their preferences as well. The live kitchen offers succulent steak cube roll, tender chicken, a variety of other options including a delightful Chicken Cordon Bleu, Lamb Tagine, and a flavourful seafood pulao. The salt crusted baked whole fish and black cod were a must-try.

The Arabic section at the restaurant is equally impressive, ensuring a wide array of choices to satisfy every palate. There are also some soup options like lentil soup and a Mediterranean seafood soup, both of which provide a comforting and flavoursome experience.

To please cheese and cold cut lovers, the antipasti section offers an enticing selection of cheeses and cold cuts that complement the seafood theme.

Children are not forgotten at Seasonal Tastes, as the buffet offers child-friendly options like fish and chips, hotdogs, and fried calamari, ensuring a delightful dining experience for the entire family.

To end the meal on a sweet note, the buffet boasts an assortment of sweet treats, tempting guests to indulge. Finally, a visit to the ice cream machine allows guests to create their own delectable frozen treat, adding a touch of fun and customisation to the dining experience.

Overall, Seasonal Tastes at Westin Doha continues to impress with its exceptional buffet offerings, including this new seafood night.
