Taste of Japan

Thursday 30th November


We are thrilled to announce our ‘Taste of Japan’ evening, scheduled for Thursday, 30th November. The night promises an unforgettable voyage of flavours, sights, and sounds that transport you straight to Japan.

Wine & Sake Showcase

Prior to settling in for dinner, our Head Sommelier, Ivan, will guide you through a captivating Wine & Sake presentation. Dive deep into the fascinating world of these beverages, unravel their history, their making, and their significance in Japanese culture. Whether you’re a novice or a connoisseur, this presentation promises insights and delights for all.

What’s on the Menu?

The evening comprises a 6-course menu crafted by Chef Patron, Mike Shaw. From delicate textures to robust flavours, each dish has been designed to pay homage to the rich culinary heritage of Japan.

Each course will be paired with meticulously selected wines and sakes. Our Head Sommelier, Ivan, with his unmatched expertise, has curated a selection that promises to be both harmonious and exhilarating with every sip.

Start the Evening Right

To set the tone for the evening, guests will be greeted with a refreshing welcome drink accompanied by gourmet canapés. It’s a small teaser for the dining experience that awaits.

Lounge DJ Session

After your dining experience, let the evening flow into a rhythmic serenade with our Lounge DJ in the bar, making the ambiance even more enigmatic and memorable.
