Contemporary Japanese

KATA’s bold menu is the brainchild of the award-winning Chef Marwan Sardouk. Having served under luminaries, Alain Ducasse and Heinz Beck, Chef Marwan brings his peerless culinary vision to KATA, which is then brought to life by executive chef Ricardo Bojador.

With a focus on premium ingredients and contemporary flair, Chef Marwan’s menu is packed with delicious dishes and signature creations. The menu is then complemented with non-alcoholic beverages from KATA’s resident mixologists.

Created by the talented Chef Marwan Sardouk with an array of options spanning seafood, meat, and vegetarian dishes, including Scottish Salmon Tataki, Chicken Katsu Curry, and the star of the menu Mushroom Truffle Rice Pot.
