South East Asian
Time Out Says
In our experience, the first thing service staff are likely to do when you arrive at pan-Asian eatery Toshi is introduce you to their generous daily eat and drink, all-in theme nights. Our advice: Ignore them. While those buffet packages are remarkable value – especially with accompanying beverages – it’s always the à la carte where things really shine. And shine they do – classics like a green curry are packed with zest, while more complicated dishes such as the steamed whole sea bass are particularly pleasing. Oddly, it’s the generic starters – typically the satisfyingly hard-to-mess-up bread and butter of any Asian joint – which feel comparatively underwhelming. However, despite pleasant 18th floor views of the Jumeirah sprawl, it’s the somewhat bland venue which might sour the taste. An odd lack of music, coupled with the threat of rowdy buffet diners, creates a sensation of sterility that is more suited to a business meeting than an anniversary dinner. Yet either way you will eat well.
