Zengo is one of those restaurants which, similar to Zuma in DIFC, also boasts an impressive lounge and bar, not to mention much trendsetting swank. It is the jewel in Le Royal Meridian Beach Resort and Spa’s F&B crown, which is saying a lot. The interior (and now outdoor seating area too) is simply beautiful, with soft lighting complimenting chic, modernist décor; together creating an elegant yet comfortable ambiance.
The food, fusion Japanese with an Asian twist, is fantastic. Hats off to new kid in town, Chef Liu and his talented team; their ‘creations’ are amazing. Our table was oohing and aahing from the minute the first dish was ‘presented’ to our table. Try…everything. It’s all good. Look for Dario, their suave (he’s Italian) operations manager. He will guide you through the new menu. And remember, this is not a place to hold back.
Service is impeccable; easiestly among the best in Dubai. I cannot tell you how ‘special’ they will make you feel. There’s none of the snobbery of other premium outlets, only genuine smiles and efficient, fast service. This is one of the few restaurants which I go beyond recommending; I encourage you to visit Zengo – it’s a cut about the rest and without a doubt one of the best in Dubai.
