L2 DoubleTree, Hilton Doha

 
Last Thursday, me and my fellow blogger Manju (www.scoopoflove.com) got an opportunity to dine in L2 restaurant by Double tree Hilton, Doha. When we arrived by 7 pm, their marketing executive Diana was waiting for us at the entrance of the restaurant. We were welcomed by a classy chic interior with minimalistic furniture styled in a contemporary theme. The bright shiny mirror ceiling was really catchy.
 
 
 
Comfortably seated in a relaxing ambience, we decided to try their dinner buffet. The spread was balanced and a perfect assortment of essential entrees for an international buffet. There was a small cheese counter, salads, soups, bread, pasta, kebab, seafood and some Asian dishes. Few dishes stood out in their spread was, juicy lamb kebab, seafood thermidor and fruit shooters, presented in a unique bulb shaped container.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I was quite impressed with their desserts which was a cheerful mix of arabic and western treats. We got a chance to sample their cheesecake suggested by Diana as the best in town.
 
 
Indeed it was, creamy light and decadent. Diana briefed us regarding their promos and future plans. As the famous quote says simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, this restaurant stood out for their simple menu which comes for a very reasonable rate. Definitely one of those hidden gems in Downtown Doha for a quiet meal.
