Koi, St Regis, Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi
It’s the perfect place to celeb spot. It’s a firm favourite among the A-list in LA, where it was founded, boasting a loyal celebrity fan following. Some famous names that have visited our local version, include world number-one golfer Rory Mcllroy and Bollywood stars Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif.
The sushi bar proves thoroughly entertaining. Prepare to be mesmerised as the sushi masters roll and wrap with expert precision, to create mouth-watering dishes in front of your very eyes.
Ordering à la carte? We highly recommend the lobster tacos, tuna tartare and salmon carpaccio for a culinary experience you’ll want to relive time and time again.
Tradition and innovation create the perfect storm. Creative dishes are inspired by traditional Japanese ingredients, fused with modern accents. The same goes for the stylish interior, which plays with the ancient elements of fire and water, mixed with the funky seating options that range from casual tables, to Koi’s signature booths.
If you can, head down for brunch. It’s a classy affair that non-queueing lovers will appreciate, with the eclectic menu offering unlimited dishes, delivered to your table with courtesy and finesse.
