And this time we decided to visit the Pan Asian restaurant, Toshi at Grand Millennium Dubai and our experience was a very interesting one.
We met the restaurant manager Petra and we were seated at a small and cozy table by the window, with a grand view of Sheikh Zayed Road. Petra introduced us to their generous daily eat and drink, all-in theme nights and we decided to go in for the 7 Asian theme night buffet which looked awesome.
Toshi is for sure one of the classiest joints in Tecom with dim but decent lighting, soft music and a calm fountain that helps to create a Zen-like atmosphere. A great experience right from entering the lavish hotel lobby to nice interiors and a sophisticated setting on the 18th floor of the Jumeirah sprawl, Toshi is one place to be in while in Dubai. We felt that the restaurant is more suited to a business meeting and sophisticated formal dinner.
The variety was colossal, Toshi had specialty dishes from China, Singapore, Myanmar, Indonesian, Japanese, Vietnam & Thailand including Cold & Hot Appetizers, Salads, Soup, Noodle & Hot Dishes. It was an impressive layout of sushi and sashimi. The chefs prepare sushi in a viewable area for diners’ entertainment and the highly knowledgeable staff can offer recommendations.
I made my selection from the assortment of raw vegetables, meat, squids, salmon, chicken laid out in front of me and watched in hunger-driven awe as the chef cooked up my soup. The Tom Yam he made for me was excellent – very spicy and fantastically flavored, delicious enough to have us going back for more.
I normally can’t stand buffets but this one looked good and well spread out. The design is beautiful and the buffet is spread out on a long line going through many rooms. The buffet was divided into sushi/sashimi/maki, salads including crab salad, crispy fish salad, squid salad and so on, tempura/grills, soups/crackers etc. Mains came off a menu of selected dishes including Nasi Goreng, sweet & sour fish, wok fried chicken, beef rendang, shrimps and other vegetables. The sushi was delicious. There are tempuras and fried goodness as well. An exhaustive list of food and you can go on eating to your heart’s desire.
And obviously, don’t forget the desserts. No matter how full you might be, everyone must try the Pisang Goreng – deep-fried banana and the palm seeds in syrup. The innovative ice cream is strangely delicious and fresh and the deep fried banana tastes heavenly. There is a variety of mousses, cakes, custard and other desert items.
Toshi’s interior looks amazing and comes with spectacular panoramic views across the city skyline. So if you’re looking for a relaxing yet sophisticated way to spend your evenings, Toshi is the place to be.
