Two friends were discussing eating sushi over Facebook the other day and I invited myself (and chubby hubby and Aria) to their date. They couldn’t say no since the post was public and it would be quite embarrassing to decline my invitation to myself to join them. hahaha Although I did really ask if it was okay, and they reassured me that it was fine. I hope my fb friends wont feel too threatened about this habit of mine. I really don’t mind if you say No.
I always try to find ways to eat sushi and thought this was a good idea to find something new. One of my friends said that this place was the best in Doha. When we got there and I tried out their sushi, i found out that she really wasn’t kidding.
Neo restaurant is located along Salwa Road in Souq Najd which is right next to Jarir Bookstore. They have been awarded the best Japanese restaurant in Doha by Time Out in 2013. What is great about the place is the accessibility and the wonderful interiors.
It is always advisable to call and get reservations. When we got there they were fully booked for the evening, but since we were early and some of the other bookings were a little later, and probably because our friends were VERY FREQUENT guests, we were given a table.
They had an Eat-all-you-can option that evening for QAR 150 and I went for it without blinking twice. They served their best selling maki and ebi for that option and I thought I would be able to eat another round. I ordered green tea to warm my tummy as I had my sushi- thinking it would help me eat more. I forgot about the baby in there who is taking up a big chunk of space. So I didn’t get to eat another round and just ordered a second helping of their maki with mango.
We also ordered a shrimp tempura which came before the main platter.
They also served a some truffles for dessert. There wasn’t place in everyone else’s tummy so I ate most of it.
The food was really good and fresh. I love that their Eat all you can option included their best sellers and not just their plain makis and ebis. I wished they had some sashimi in there so that I could have tried it. Maybe next time… definitely next time.
