Popular Chef Izu Ani’s upcoming restaurant concept, Aya – which means beautiful in Japanese – is set to open in City Walk this month. The restaurant promises to showcase the very best of innovative dining in the UAE with its bold flavours and unexpected layered Asian cuisine.
The interiors will feature an inside and outside space with elements of a Japanese garden complete with a cherry blossom tree symbolising the fragility and beauty of life, tying in with Aya’s namesake.
“Dubai has been waiting for a fresh concept that layers traditions and flavours, creating beautifully delicate dishes that guests will not find anywhere else. We wanted to take Asian cuisine to a different level with the most important elements being imbedded deep in the tastes of the menu. The passion we have behind the concept will present itself in the aromas, interior, staff, food, drinks and atmosphere Aya has to offer,” says Ani.
