Japanese restaurant draws crowds to its all you can eat Pan-Asian buffets

Its name may evoke images of kimonos and coy fish but this Asian fusion restaurant on the 18th floor of TECOM’s Grand Millennium hotel is on a mission to master every cuisine from China to Thailand. While the majority of restaurants in this city manage to fail such an ambitious task, Toshi get its right – especially if the crowds are anything to go by. On weeknights it hosts themed spreads and on our last visit, the place was heaving brunch-style, Thursday night offers an all-you-can-eat Thai buffet for an a very affordable Dhs215 (including drinks). While the à la carte menu is overwhelmingly disjointed and difficult to get your head around, options are plentiful. Whether you’re after sashimi, wok-fried king crab, Thai beef-style salad, wagyu beef strips or deep-fried ice cream, there is something for everything and it’s all totally edible, without being overpriced. Smokers will also love the fact you don’t have to take a lift downstairs to spark up – there is an adjoining bar and room to do so, as well as a smoking section within the restaurant.
