The interiors here are stunning. Used as a backdrop for many a magazine shoot, this is a reflection of the Japanese-Peruvian Nikkei menu concept. It’s designed to make a style statement with oversized contemporary chandeliers, black Inca-style carvings, South American street art and oriental-style bird cages, which are all enhanced by the natural light that floods in from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Make like a model and strike a pose!
It’s not pretentious. With zero dress code, you can dine as you like – whether that means a fancy frock and heels or shorts and a t-shirt. It’s up to you whether you want to dress the part and match the smart ambience or just stand out from the rest.
The food is spectacular. Thrill your palate from the start with a classic causa from Peru. It’s a dish that combines tender octopus and whipped potato with a deliciously moreish black olive mayo. For mains, try the Ebi Teppan; fragrant buttery prawns adorned with onions and coriander that’s brought to the table on a sizzling hot plate.
It offers value for money. With a price point of around Dhs250 per person, it’s perfect for those seeking something extra special without breaking the bank.
Enjoy the Latin beats. A resident native Columbian band add to the experience and play three times a week, to make sure you burn off some of those calories with some post-dinner hip swaying.
