Sushi trees, jaw-dropping views, elaborate plating, layered desserts and modern decor — Pa Pa Ya is the ultimate fine-dining gastronomical experience.
Your heart will skip a beat on entering this vast spacious fine dining space. Standing tall on the 11th floor of Magma House, it has huge windows with panoramic views of the city. They’ve got a special section with a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the entire city. For those who want to cherish some personal moments with the fam, they’ve got an 8-seater private room where you’ll be in the company of embroidered chairs, beautiful candleholders and abstract paintings.
The contemporary setting with gorgeous lampshades, grand sofas and bursts of white light is perfect to catch up over drinks. The dining area marks expansive open kitchens and bars, cushioned couches and modern-day tracklights. The décor feels as if you’re in a Japanese Michelin-star restaurant.
The bistro is known for their sushi and sashimi — they have an assortment of various kinds of sushi but what will rock your world is their signature ‘sushi tree’ (Nilgiri sushi presented on a wooden tree). The edamame sliders are totally worth it — not just green pods, it has got lotus buns, grilled chickpeas and a chilli mayo. For all the vegetarians in the house, you can finally try hot dogs. Yes that’s right, they’ve got a veggie tofu hot dog! Everything here is out-of-the-box; and you have to keep an eye out on their truffle imitation bao which is shitake shaped.
You’ll swoon over the desserts at Pa Pa Ya. We were totally aww-struck by the Flaming Chocolate Ball. It is a choco dome with vanilla ice-cream, cookie crumbs, chocolate ganache and almonds, that bursts when drizzled with alcohol. Pouring molten chocolate and cointreau over it, and watching it open is pure bliss!
