30 Apr The art of Sushi: Kyo Restaurant & Lounge
When Japanese cuisine meets sophisticated interiors, then the art of sushi reaches its excellence.
Kyo restaurant & lounge recently opened its doors on the Palm in Dubai, and revealed a secret realm – its garden. Located at the start of the prestigious strip, reaching Kyo is like reaching an oasis in the dessert. Its stunning outdoor garden, surrounded by greenery and flowers, elicits calm and serenity. The perfect scenery for loosing myself for hours. Going inside reveals another story, where Japanese accent meets contemporary interiors. Wood, marble and neutral tones create a rather casual feel. With decor that’s elegant while remaining minimal, I loved the central open sushi bar where you can watch your favorite bites freshly prepared. Its wooden black lighting fixtures are also a plus. Don’t forget to visit the restrooms ‘je ne sais quoi’ (even if you don’t need to)!!
For sushi lovers, a thoughtful selection of sushi is served and (yes!) I tried many flavors that left my palate satisfied! The menu also includes authentic Asian grills and even a fusion breakfast menu to sample the best of the Far East. Not to mention the French flair that the head chef Gregory Goulot, who has owned his skills along with Japanese chefs, gives to the execution and presentation of the dishes.
This stylish sushi spot worth a try for healthy breakfast, casual meal with friends or a fun night out. Don’t miss out its mocktails. Let me know about your #EscapeToKyo experience and leave your comments!
