Oryx Rotana Doha has won top honours for one of its restaurants at the fourth Time Out Doha Restaurant Awards, which was held at the Grand Hyatt Doha on 14 May 2014.

The Time Out Doha Restaurant Awards ceremony was attended by key industry leaders and dignitaries, in recognition of the best in the hospitality and culinary scene in Qatar. A variety of 90 ‘shortlisted’ dining outlets were assessed in as many as 20 categories, based on reviews from the past 12 months.

General Manager, Kevork Deldelian, said:

We have clearly set the highest benchmark in dining out in Doha, and we’ll endeavor to top the awards each time. It is an honour to have the high-quality of our restaurants and the perseverance of our staff recognised.

Time out Doha review

The vibe at Oryx Rotana’s Jazz Club is buzzing at the best of times for drinks and live entertainment by the resident band that plays a mix of jazz, blues, Motown and more. But pair your evening there with a bite to eat and you’ll enjoy a lingering loving feeling for the place. That’s how we felt anyway.

We headed over fairly early on a regular weekday night to find the place was already filling up. The menu, which has recently been revamped, offers a range of meals such as steaks, seafood, pasta, salads and more that vary in prices. Now a lounge bar, in my opinion, isn’t the type of place you go for a three-course dining experience but you could actually do it in The Jazz Club as everything sounds so tasty.’
