Noodles and Ribs was the concept launched by Elements Restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel Doha last summer. It features a delectable variety of ribs and Chef Ding’s hand pulled noodles. Before I left for vacation last July, the foodie in me was so eager to try it because the concept looks interesting and unique, but the thrifty side of me was telling me not to pay QAR 200 for just noodles and ribs (I didn’t know then that salads, sushi and desserts are included).
Fast forward to when I got back in Doha, I saw that the Noodles and Ribs is included at the monthly promotion of Entertainer Qatar. I didn’t think twice of recommending it to our friends when they invited me and Tep to meet them over lunch.
Last Saturday, we finally gave it a try. It was my first time at Elements and I was so impressed with its cozy and vibrant set up. The restaurant was not full that time, which was good, as it gave us more chance to explore the wide array of dishes. And here they are:
Salads and Appetizers
Love the Lobster Salad, Cocktail Shrimps and Mussles and the Salmon.
I had Zhajiang Mian (Noodle with Zhajiang Sauce Beef Soybean) and Laksa. The ingredients, as well as the noodles, were of good quality, however I find it bland, it lacks the flavor that I am looking for on these noodles.
Grilled Section (Ribs and Fish)
I didn’t get to try the fish, but the ribs were tasty and tender.
Aside from the sushi and sashimi, they also have prawn tempura.
I like most of their desserts but my favorite was the chocolate fondue because I am a big fan of fresh fruits dipped in delicious melted chocolate..
It’s been a while since the last time that we had buffet in Doha (we were trying to slim down, but unsuccessful) and our experience at the Elements last Saturday went fine. The service was outstanding, all the staffs were accommodating and attended to all our needs. As for the taste of the food, I find it just average.
Would I return here? Probably. I’ve been hearing a lot of great reviews about the Friday Brunch and the ala carte meals, so I might give it a try soon.
