Yum Cha Brunch at InterContinental Doha The City - a culinary journey through Southeast Asia

Advantage Club caught up with the team at Hwang to delve a little deeper into this brunch with a difference.

Take a trip around Southeast Asia through the region’s unique and delicious flavours. The best way to do it? Enjoy the famous Yum Cha Brunch at Hwang, located in the heart of the city, InterContinental® Doha The City.

So what's this Yum Cha brunch I’ve been hearing so much about?

Served family style and with typical Asian flair, the Yum Cha Brunch delights guests with small plates of a wide range of delicious Southeast Asian dishes, gathering friends and family together to share a great meal. Although Yum Cha is technically known for the all you can eat dumpling and tea brunches in Southeast Asia, we’re giving it a twist at Hwang and offering so much more. Snack sized portions of beloved street food favourites – and you can have as much of everything as you want!

How does it work?

Make a reservation, take a seat, choose your package, and let us do the rest. We bring your menu to you so you don't have to get up. You choose as many dishes as you want and we cook it from scratch with passion, ensuring quality and fresh flavours every time. We bring your favourites to your table where you can then enjoy and savour the flavours of Southeast Asia.

Order one portion of each dish to be shared with the rest of the group, or order plenty of your favourites to each have a portion all to yourself. We’re bringing you the ultimate lazy brunch.

How and where do I start?

The menu shows you the various categories available. You can go ahead and have your curries first, or start with the soup, and mix between the appetizers! Move on to the steamed dishes, the grilled dishes, the wok-fried favourites, and more when you feel ready. Order a side of rice or vegetables (or both!) then indulge in some noodles and Ayam Perchick (a delicious spicy chicken dish from Malaysia marinated in spices and coconut). Eat your appetizers side by side your mains. End the day with some dessert… Or start your meal with it! We won't judge. Just go with the flow and eat how you feel!

So many options… What are the absolute must-eats?

With such a wide range of dishes to choose from, we understand it might be a little daunting trying to think about what to eat first. We recommend you try the signature dishes of Hwang: Crispy wasabi prawns, laksa, and the Malaysian chicken & beef satay. Don’t miss our dumplings and curries!

To go with your brunch, we offer classic as well as unique Asian flavoured cocktails and mocktails. Try our signature Hwang Passion Mocktail! Also, we help make your meal as authentic as possible with our Asian brews.

Don't forget to ask us what 'Hwang' means!

But don't just take our word for it, here's what diners say about the Yum Cha Brunch.

I loved the spicy beef salad, broccoli and the duck. Other favourites were beef satay which was wonderfully tender, crab rangoon, nasi goreng and the asparagus with sambal belacan. The wok fried duck was so good we ended up ordering another. Throughout our meal the service was superb.


So would we go again? Absolutely! We loved the small plates which allowed us to try a brill range of food and loved he fact that it was served rather than buffet style. The staff were excellent and the decor lovely. I think this might become our go to whenever we are hankering south East Asian food!


The menu offers a dim sum size selection of dishes including soups, fried, steamed, wok fried, curries, vegetables and of course sweets. You can have as many or as few as you want. Of course, I wanted all the dumplings.
