From Monaco to Dubai, MayaBay Opened Its Door to Public

by DubaiCity Author

The MayaBay brand originated in Monaco as a trendy Asian fusion restaurant, one of Monaco’s most coveted reservations. Located next door to Monte Carlo Bay, Maya Bay is two individual restaurants – one serving Thai cuisine and the other specialising in Japanese dishes. The frequently changing (and inventive) menu. The Dubai location – at the Jumeirah Al Naseem hotel, with a view of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah – focuses on just one sophisticated dining setting that every guest will love.

The Concept

The restaurant is part of the Maya Collection. The Monaco-based hospitality group operates restaurants and hotels that include Maya Jah, Maya Mia, Maya Altitude and Refuge de la Traye. Seating 200 covers, the restaurant includes a DJ booth integrated on the mezzanine level of the bar and Asian-inspired music from conga drums, percussions, and a live band. There is also a wine menu, a cocktail menu and a cigar lounge. MayaBay exudes amazing Asian design, adorned with warm and intricately carved wooden panels accentuated by natural stones, red and green chairs, elegant crystal lights and large glass windows that offer uninterrupted views.

The Menu

Headed by Chef Shane Mac Neill, MayaBay Dubai’s menu is rooted in traditional Asian cuisine. It features distinct dishes ranging from dim sum to Japanese tempura and sushi, Thai curries and salads and standout signatures including Maya Crispy duck, Pad Thai, MayaBay sashimi, Yam ped tap tim (duck salad) and Black cod with miso and honey. It also expands on classic flavours in contemporary dishes, such as Caviar dim sum, Prik pao mangkorn (wok-fried lobster in prik pao sauce) and MayaBay beef tartare. The menu has also been carefully crafted to include special vegetarian and vegan-friendly options. Please click here to view its entire menu.

The Bar

According to its website, everyone can enjoy an impressive selection of signature cocktails that revolve around the natural elements – fire, water, air, and earth. The drinks menu features a carefully curated wine, sake and tea selection that perfectly complements its various Asian dishes. In addition, MayaBay also introduces the signature MayaMoki brand, where sophistication is found in the customised flavours and playful details of traditional Japanese mochis, presented in elegant displays reminiscent of beautiful jewellery vitrines and available to enjoy for dessert or takeaway.
