Head here for a dramatic and contemporary take on Asian cuisine. Set across two sprawling floors, comprising a lounge on the upper level and the restaurant below, this is an impressive venue complete with open kitchen at its epicentre, where you can watch the chefs creating dishes using traditional ingredients and modern cooking techniques.
The food is out of this world! Beyond the signatures of black tea smoked cod with Thai basil and pomelo sauce, shiitake crusted half rack of Australian lamb, sushi and dim sum dishes, we recommend the fire roasted Japanese eggplant glazed with sweet miso – it’s a veggie dish that will blow your mind!
Head outside if the weather permits. The newly opened terrace area is al fresco dining at its best, complete with twinkling fairy lights which create a magical ambience. It’s inviting and contemporary décor also makes this a shisha hotspot, for a fragrant and sociable end to the meal.
Ladies’ nights are epic. The venue’s ‘Madame Butterfly’ offering is so popular, it boasts the award for being Dubai’s top spot to chill on Tuesdays. With complimentary drinks and 50 percent off on food from 6.30pm, we say grab the girls for that long overdue catch up and a stylish night that won’t break the bank.
Make date night a Monday. Grab your significant other and enjoy a bit of everything with a seven-course tasting menu, complete with free flowing house grape all night long for just Dhs388 for two. It’s a sure-fire way to stir up amorous feelings!
