Award-winning Nozomi Riyadh has been the talk of town ever since its opening in 2014. Considered the number one destination for Japanese fine dining in the city, this unique culinary experience from Knightsbridge, London is at the heart of the Riyadh dining scene.
Located in a fabulously designed contemporary building on Dabab Street, it’s truly a gem due to its sharing plate concept which is “designed to excite the palate as well as stimulate a relaxing and unique atmosphere”.
Regulars at Nozomi are Riyadh’s elite society, which range from artists to fashion designers to ministers and businessmen, all of whom share a love and passion for excellent food in a high-end setting with a contemporary and fashionable flair.
The restaurant is split into three areas, which comprise of a singles area (by single we mean men’s only, it’s a Saudi thing), lounge, and sushi bar. There is also a private dining room that can be opened up into one big space for larger groups and has the capacity to host 100 guests.
When arriving at Nozomi, guests are greeted by a doorman in a traditional Saudi thobe, which is a heartwarming and welcoming Saudi hospitality style.
Must-try dishes include the mouthwatering watermelon duck salad, special sushi yellow tail sashimi, and volcano shrimp, as well as the Wagyu with mushroom rice for a main course.
To satisfy those sweet cravings, go for a refreshing rosewater flavor ice cream, which is both delicate and creamy with the perfect amount of sweetness. The fragrant taste of the ice cream is the perfect end to a decadent dinner.
An ultra-chic and trendy atmosphere among the “It” crowd of the fashionable and luxurious Riyadh society, Nozomi is a definite must when visiting the capital.
Good for a casual night out with your main man or with the ladies.
