Be it authenticity, exceptional value or outstanding customer service, we are truly setting the benchmark.”

“The Sama Lounge - Our new casual dining area is a clear key line of business that City Centre Rotana Doha will keep on investing in. As a perfect option for leisure meals, the restaurant is a real feast for the eyes as well as the stomach!” Martin Kendall added

Guests at Sama Lounge can anticipate a spin on ingredients through a variety of dishes namely Tabbouleh, Fattoush, Crispy fried calamari, Garlic chilli prawns, Mashawi Mushakal, Shish Taouk and many more that clearly demonstrate innovation of City Centre Rotana Doha’s chefs in the culinary field.
