A post shared by Toki Restaurants KSA (@tokiksa)

Toki knows how to set the mood with its swanky seats and low lighting. The award-winning chef, Peter Lau Chee Wei, makes the kind of Chinese food that makes our hearts skip a beat. When budget isn’t an issue, order the Szechwan aromatic crispy duck. As it’s cooked with so much love, it needs to be ordered 24 hours in advance. Plus, there are quirky treats like the chocolate hazelnut crunch dumplings, which are filled with Nutella and hazelnut roasted paste.

Toki, Al Khalidiyyah, Jeddah, Sun to Wed 1pm to 11.30pm, Thu to Sat 1pm to 1am. Tel: (0) 50 466 5658. tokiksa.com
