PINOY FIESTA at Choices Restaurant, Oryx Rotana Hotel

The Oryx Rotana Hotel is one of our family’s favorite hotels. It is our hotel-of-choice whenever we have guests before, as we love the fact that there are a host of restaurants and bars inside. They will never run out of dining options: from Chinese food, to jazz bar, to wine, outdoor and indoor lounges, and an all-day dining restaurant… name it, they all have it.

Some of the most memorable occasions for the family are spent at Oryx Rotana: our New Year’s Eve celebrations, birthday dinners, occasional staycations, and even casual dining with friends and colleagues.

So an invitation to revisit the Oryx Rotana is simply exciting. There were minor refurbishing done at the lounge as well as upgrades on the decors. But the overall feel is still the same… homey, comforting and very friendly staffs. It definitely feels good to be back!


It got me super excited when I learned that there’s a Filipino theme night at Choices Restaurant… adding up to the growing list of 5-star hotels in Qatar which feature Filipino dishes on their menu.

Sunday was the designated feast day for Filipino cuisines… a showcase which I personally believe will not only benefit the Filipino expat community in Qatar but also the other nationalities. It is high time for Filipino food to take centerstage and be known.

As their digital banner at the entrance aptly puts it:

Through good times and bad, the fiesta must go on! And what can be better than to spend your Sunday at Choices in a perfect family ambiance with our Filipino buffet. Surrender yourself to the rich varieties of kare-kare, beef lechon kawali, sinigang and bistek for just QR139 per person food only or QR 229 including unlimited selected house beverages or try our premium package for QR300 including unlimited sparkling vino, house spirits, selected digestive and aperitifs.

I was a guest blogger for the PINOY FIESTA Theme Night and it adds pride to endorse this FEAST-ive SUN-date to everyone.
