WAKAME – A stylish contemporary Asian inspired cuisine

by

Wakame, is a stylish contemporary Asian inspired restaurant with a fabulous cuisine in Dubai. We had the pleasure to try their latest menu and offers last week and wanna tell you more about it.

Tim and I went to Dubai last week and spent a delicious night at Wakame with some other lovely blogger friends. It was our first time at the restaurant and we were super surprised by the nice, big location and the great food we got.
Wakame is located in the Sofitel hotel in Downtown Dubai (close to the Burj Khalifa) and is a super stylish and spacious restaurant. We were invited to try their current offers and the menu in general and review it.

The food is of high standard, super yummy and the prices are reasonable. Especially now during the promotions.
The interior is beautiful, with dark woods, beautiful carvings and soft lighting.

The Jamaican born Chef Lloyd Roberts is just genius! He prepared amazing dishes for us which were all super tasty. He was trained in a Michelin starred restaurant what you can truly taste when you try his food!
