One Sheikh Zayed Road leads into the Pan-Asian Restaurant, the third outpost for the Novikov Restaurant Group headed by Arkadiy Novikov. Here, cool granite walls complement the striking lacquered ebony bar-counter decorated with a jade stone, offset by subtle features such as a wall of cracked stone and bamboo chandeliers.
The restaurant is divided into two areas, The Market and the Lounge Bar offering an atmosphere that is at once welcoming and relaxing, but subtle enough not to distract from the food itself. One of the main and real features of the Pan-Asian Restaurant is its open kitchen, fronted by an amazing display of fresh seafood and organic vegetables.
The Asian Restaurant specializes in Chinese and Pan-Asian cuisine, with a menu designed by highly skilled and experienced Japanese-trained Head Chef Shane Macneill experimenting with different textures, flavours and ingredients. Additionally, on the menu is an extensive range of sushi, dim sums and barbecued and charcoaled dishes, spicy lamb cutlets and miso black Cod included.
