Manko - Parisian/ Nikkei Lounge - InterContinental Doha
Very nice atmosphere, nice food and good service...
Nice place. And staff very helpful and friendly. But ambience is poor. Only reservations. Half empty because all reserved. Place for the rich to flash the cash. Was expecting a bit of music also but that seemed to be background sound rather than something you could move too.
Sitting inside is like you are alone with no ambience. I ordered 5 dishes 2 were ok the others didn't have any flavor. Also deserts were average. It looks like sitting outside with a drink is the best option for next visit if we go.
I reserved a week ahead of time and didn't get even on outside seating.
So, we were really excited about going to Manko. We arrived and it was beautiful. We were seated on the terrace and served amazing food and drinks, plus LED shisha. Ther service was spot-on! Then, Manko started filling up and essentially, WE WERE FORGOTTEN. No more checking on us...no more recognition of our empty glasses...no more attention to our charcoal...AND THAT RUINED THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE FOR US. Quality service is KEY, because wevcan get great food and drinks anywhere!
