Dubais favourite Asian restaurant opens new location

Attention! ASIA ASIA is officially open in Business Bay. The multi award-winning Asian Restaurant & Lounge is truly one of Dubai’s unmissable dining destinations, and their stunning new location is no exception. 

The Ambience..

You can expect the same opulent surroundings inside the new venue, as the iconic candlelit Oriental statues frame the tunnel entrance, and the aromatic smells create an authentic Far East feel. The décor feels rich but sophisticated, with that iconic Asia Asia ambience, i.e low lighting, opulent Asian features and a whole lot of gold! The terrace also deserves a mention, perfect for a candlelight dinner, with incredible views across the glittering water. Back inside the Asian restaurant you’ll find a beautiful cocktail bar, life sized blossom trees and an open sushi bar – a real insta-worthy photo op.

Cuisine from the Far East to the Middle East..

The menu includes all the favourites we know and love, from the Truffle Beef Gyozas to the Miso Black Cod. With Sushi being a key feature on the menu, it was only right to ‘push the boat out’ and enjoy our very own Sushi platter, displayed beautifully on a wooden ship. Yes, you have to see it to believe it. Head to Asia Asia Business Bay and get a feel (and taste) for the place, with their exclusive offering, ‘A Taste of Asia’. For just AED 250 from 6pm daily, you can enjoy 4 courses from a curated set menu of the Chef’s favourite dishes. Don’t walk, RUN!

The Chicest Restaurant in Selfridges 

Selfridges

Welcome to Brasserie of Light

We spent the afternoon at this stunning London hotspot, it really is the chicest restaurant in Selfridges. The venue dazzles diners with Art Deco interiors, an eclectic menu and a giant statue by Damien Hirst.

Selfridges

Selfridges’ Brasserie of Light opened in late 2018 and wow-d shoppers with its ’contemporary, elegant and artistic’ style. The venue continues to be a firm favourite amongst the London crowd, known for it’s extravagant interior and top tier service. If you take the entrance from Duke Street, you can understand why it’s considered an extravagant affair, with the resident doorman in a top hat and coat tails ready to welcome you inside. Follow the mirror covered walls through the entrance, and into the restaurant, an impressive space with serious Art Deco styling, from the high ceilings and mirrored everything, to the mustard yellow banquettes and bar stools. The star of the show though, is Damien Hirst’s largest London artwork, the 24ft crystal encrusted Pegasus set above the gleaming tables below.

The buzzing atmosphere..

Brasserie of Light definetly pulls out all the stops to ensure even the most discerning of guests leave feeling they’ve had a special experience – and we’d say the owners know a thing or two about creating successful venues, given that the owners Richard Caring’s Caprice Holdings are responsible for The Ivy Collection and Sexy Fish. The buzzing atmosphere is charming, and even though it gets rather busy, still manages to feel like you have enough privacy at your table (unless your a table of two). Aside from the stunning dining area, the venue also boasts an impressive mirrored bar (perfect for an elegant cocktail or two), while the flamboyant character continues into the loos, with a bold combo of marble and yep, more mirroring. It’s black for the boys and dusty pink for the girls, serving as the perfect insta op.

An extensive all day menu..

Selfridges food

It has to be said that our lunch at Brasserie of Light was no less impressive than the surroundings. The menu is a good mash up of British and International dishes, all of which have certainly been given a tweak or two to emulate the decadent experience. The extensive all day menu offers something to satisfy everyone, from the white onion soup (tried, tested and delicious), to the Milanese Chicken and Miso Black Cod. The deserts are a real spectacle, creatively ‘designed’ to ensure maximum content potential. Although a hard choice, we opted for the galactic themed ’Orbit’ desert, a planet shaped chocolate dome, encasing chocolate mousse and ice cream on a bed of milk foam. We can confirm it was as yummy as it was beautiful! From the extensive alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktail list to the brasserie style all day menu, this venue really does cater to everyone, and is surprisingly reasonably priced given its flamboyant vibe. A special dining experience that doesn’t break the bank!

Changing The F&B Industry In Dubai..

 

It’s not just the views that are wow-worthy,  If you can steal yourself away from the sparkling marina lights, you’ll find Group Executive Chef Robert Rathbones’ menu equally alluring. The man behind the magic for all the incredible cuisines across all Solutions Leisure restaurants including hotspots such as KOYO, Ula and STK. Robert has been with the ever expanding company for the past 5 years, he prides himself on constantly creating new concepts and menus for the restaurants.

You are sure to be blown away by the diverse menu and flavors he brings to the table.

When sitting down with Robert he explained that he loves the challenge that comes with the diversity of Solutions Leisure, jumping from an Asian perspective one moment to planning the menu of an American steakhouse the next, never a boring day!

ASIA ASIA DUBAI

The Best Sushi In Town..


Sushi is one of the most popular dishes here in Dubai and boy do Asia Asia pull out all of the stops! We ordered the Asia Asia mixed platter which was presented on huge wooden iced dish decorated with beautiful bright flowers. As the impressive dish was placed onto the table the waitress poured water over dry ice which surrounded the dish, the whole table was covered with smoke, it really was quite the show! If you’re looking to WOW someone on date night this is the dish to order, plus It really did taste as good as it looked!!

The best seller is the Moromi Miso Black Cod, a huge crowd pleaser and defiantly one to try. Other popular options include: Crispy Aromatic Duck, Beef & Truffle Dim Sum, Duck & Dragon Maki and much more. Prices are really reasonable starting with the Sushi and Dim Sum from AED 45 +.
