WHY GO

Rem­i­nis­cent of a beach house, this white-walled restau­rant of­fers both pre­mium Asian fu­sion dishes and views of the An­daman Sea that are se­cond to none.

WHAT TO OR­DER

The tuna tartare is a must-have here. The teriyaki glaze on the tuna gives it a hint of sweet­ness while the av­o­cado and mango salsa adds rich­ness and a bit of tang to the tiny cubes of fish.

The crab salad is given a hint of heat with the wasabi to­biko and the ad­di­tion of av­o­cado gives it a creamy but­ter­i­ness. The dish comes to­gether nicely with a re­fresh­ing co­rian­der yo­ghurt.

The seafood paella is great for shar­ing. In­fused with Asian herbs and spices, it is topped with tomato salsa, lemon wedges, plump scal­lops, crispy pieces of fish, lus­cious prawns and chewy mus­sels — it is just as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the taste­buds.

Round up the meal with the Na­gasari, a Malaysiana dessert made up of caramelised ba­nanas and co­conut cream topped with a crispy fried ba­nana. It is com­ple­mented with teh tarik ice-cream, which has a hint of bit­ter­ness thanks to the tea leaf in­fu­sion.
