Named after the Japanese word for light, Akari infuses Kathmandu’s fine dining scene with a potent dose of uber-trendy Asian flavours. Located on the 10 th floor of the hotel, adjacent to the bar and swimming pool, the restaurant’s minimalist design aesthetic borrows from Oriental manga culture. The extensive menu features the full spectrum of Japanese cuisine along with Thai, Korean, Cantonese and Burmese dishes. A show kitchen allows diners to observe our chefs sizzle fresh vegetables and the finest cuts of meat on Robata and Teppanyaki grills and expertly roll sushi, as small plates bearing sensational gourmet bites circulate amongst the tables. Redolent with the distinct flavours of Sriracha, ponzu, daikon, tobiko and matcha, Akari is the perfect space for gourmands to impress business associates, friends and family overoutstanding, sake-soaked dining experiences.
