Already well on our radar for the consistently good quality of its food and service, Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski Hotel, our favorite spot on the east side of town, has just added more delights to the menu at Yana, its Asian-fusion restaurant.

We can’t wait to try them and are counting the moments.

Type of cuisine: Asian fusion, sushi.

Signature items: Sushi Tower, Wagyu Beef Sushi, Kung Pao Chicken, Sizzling Sichuan Beef, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Shrimp XO and Ginger Lobster.

What You Will Find

If you are a fan of Asian food, this is where you can indulge to the max. Top of our list would have to be sushi. A lot of our favorite items already feature on the sushi and starter menu, but we would also love to try the Wagyu Beef sushi as well.

If we had a group of friends, obviously we would push the boat out and go straight for the 120 item Yana Signature Sushi Tower. Who could resist? Black Pepper Shrimp with Sun-Dried Pineapple also has us salivating, and we are sure the vegetarians amongst us would love the Vegetable Tempura with Plum Sauce.

For anyone who hasn’t tried Green Papaya Salad, this would be the chance to dive into a sour and spicy mélange of peanuts, papaya, garlic and tomato. Unique and memorable, it could fast become a standout item.

Meat lovers should definitely try the Sichuan Beef, served sizzling hot and redolent with garlic, ginger and chili. Another palate-pleasing indulgence must be the Ginger Lobster. Not low budget, but hey, it is not every day you dine like this!

The menu is rich and varied, so we would definitely plan to visit more than once to be able to explore the options. But already, we have our eye on the Lychee Pana Cotta with Raspberry Jelly as a sweet treat to wind up our experience. That would be a must.

Beverages: Full bar, exciting cocktails and plenty of soft options.
