The largest tashas concept to date will showcase stunning interior architecture by globally renowned design firm B&S Studio. They will be harmoniously balanced with elegant swathes of peach and pink, taking inspiration from the fauna and flora of Africa with a gentle nod to the style signatures of the 70s. Embellished references to the African sky with hints of playfulness are delicately interwoven with modern, unique and classic elements, encouraging a lively interplay between the bars, lounge, casual dining restaurant and terrace areas. Flamingo Room by tashas has also collaborated with the unique South African retail brand, Collective by Charles Greig, which has appropriated a share of the space for its own shop, reinforcing the ode to African heritage and showcasing the glamour of the continent in a unique and contemporary form that comfortably sits within the International retail scene. It is where African opulence meets the sophisticated dining landscape of Dubai but with the casual comfort and homely ambience the tashas brand is renowned for.

Toasted Brioche and a Saffron & Lemon Hollandaise, a Classic Prawn Avo Ritz, White Fish with Sauce Vierge and Artichoke, Beetroot Quinoa Salad, Ribeye with Coriander and Herb Butter, and Seafood Pasta.
