Asian Tower is one of the high end Japanese Restaurants. Beautiful restaurant with excellent service, great food. We had dinner with 20 business relations. The chef surprised u with a Kings Crab, normally not on the Menu. Excellent

“Wow, what a great dining experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

We went for Valentine's day to eat Japanese. We went for the Chef's menu and let ourselves be surprised, we choose a price of 75 euros per person which is somewhere in the midle of the ranges they had available -> price range had nothing to do with the amount of food but everything with the exclusivity of it.
It sounds expensive, but for all that we got to eat/try and experience the cook with the sharp knives and fire preparing the food in front of you, it was a price well paid for quality to our opinion.

We received a diner consisting of 8 plates, we chose the fish/meat combination, but it's also possible to only choose meat or only fish.

I must admit, I was a bit sceptic when the sushi/sashimi plate arrived after the first aperitive -> my husband doesn't like salmon too much and I remember my last experience of raw salmon as a disaster.
But the opposite was true now: so so delicious and we never knew that raw fish can taste so nice: salmon, tuna and seabass combined with avocado, cucumber and a very simple soy salse.

The next dishes of fish includes scallops, tiger prawns, lobster, helibot fish.
After the last fish dish we got a lemon ice sorbet with champagne to switch to meat;
including kangaroo meat and black angus beef, with deliciously a lot of garlic chips (yes, you have to like garlic!).

For us it was a fantastic experience of trying Japanese food and one more kitchen to add to our food list to love!
