Gran Melia serves authentic Japanese cuisine and sake at its in-house restaurant Yoshi Izakaya, a place for a great dining and drinking experience.
This warm and cosy restaurant features an interesting design concept inspired by Warner Wong design from WOW Architects. The unique showcase of bottles and sake bar and lounge at the entrance invites guests to start their experience with good sake or other beverage. Long benches and tables create a relaxed atmosphere, while round birdcage-inspired tables made from rattan add an exotic flair.
The highlight of Yoshi is the 19-metre-long robatayaki, sushi and sashimi bar that runs down the centre of the restaurant. Yoshi provides two teppanyaki counters at the end of the room and one semi-private teppanyaki counter just next to a private room overlooking the swimming pool, which can accommodate up to 12 people. The one-of-a kind semi-private tatami rooms are set up on each end of the restaurant. The dining room seats up to 100 people and is perfect for family, business or social gatherings. Yoshi is open for lunch from 11.30am to 3pm and for dinner from 6pm to 10pm.
Yoshi Izakaya creations include Zensai cold and warm appetizer, tempura, sashimi, sushi, kushiyaki, seafood and vegetable robatayaki, shabu-shabu, sukiyaki and gozen (set menus). Yoshi Izakaya has signature dishes including Yoshi Goma Tofu (sesame flavoured milk curd wakame seaweed), Robatayaki Yakizakana (robatayaki-style set lunch menu), and beef and lobster gozen (set lunch menu of sliced sirloin beef and half portion of lobster). For dessert, don’t miss their delicious Kuzukiri, chilled steamed arrowroot noodles served with black gum syrup, sweetened red bean paste and soya bean flour.
