About Bar Asia
A Buddah smiles out from the blue-lit cocktail bar at the back of this two-floor bar and restaurant. His welcoming vibe, plus black leather banquette seating, tall white walls carrying bold modern art, and clever lighting make an inviting combination. Downstairs is a dark-walled dining room proper. Both floors serve a top-dollar pick and mix of Oriental and Asian cooking styles - so alongside salmon pieces marinated in yoghurt, cheese and dill you get Cantonese dim sum, and yakitori chicken.
