    The interactive stalls in our over-the-water Asian-market-inspired restaurant make it as fun to admire the action as it is to try authentic tastes from Thailand, China, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines. Dim sum steam in bamboo mushiki. A parade of meats, vegetables and seasonings urges you to have noodle dishes or stir-fries whipped up in woks. A pushcart displays a perfect Peking duck. At East Market breakfast and dinner isn’t just about grazing from the live cooking stations – our terraces promise heart-stopping Indian Ocean views. In the mood for a classic European start to your day? Follow the scent of baking to croissants, baguettes, pastries and seeded loaves, fresh from that glass-fronted oven.

Perch on benches at the cobalt-blue sushi bar and watch our masters crafting just-caught seafood into world-class sashimi, nigiri and maki. At a wood-smoky robata grill, see us barbecue Kobe beef or Australian lamb, just how the pickiest epicureans like it, right here in this elegant space. More visual thrills await thanks to the head chef’s entertaining teppanyaki skills. Drink connoisseurs have 30 sakés and nine fine Japanese whiskies with which to toast this remarkable dining experience.
