It is one of many new openings we’ve been looking forward to in 2023…

Food and karaoke may not always go hand in hand, but they definitely do at Dasha, Riyadh’s most exciting modern Chinese restaurant in The Esplanade that promises a jolly good time.

The beautifully modern main space is decked out in sleek marble, plush sofas, sparkling chandeliers, and wooden surfaces, complemented with chinoiserie charm.

Head further into the restaurant, and you’ll find private karaoke rooms that let you and your friends feast, drink, and sing to your heart’s content.

With a menu created by Executive Chef Akira Back, you can be sure that every bite is made to impress. Dasha serves modern Chinese dishes made with traditional techniques and plated fancifully.

Aside from exquisite dim sum bites, highlights include the Peking duck – expect the meat to be aromatic and tender with a glistening layer of crispy skin, and the Australian beef tenderloin cubes that are tender and juicy with fiery black pepper sauce. Or, try the wooden grilled sea bass with Hong Kong-style soya sauce and hot sesame oil.


As for dessert, look forward to treats like egg tarts or the peanut butter cube toast with crunchy feulletine. Then, wash it all down with fragrant pots of tea. Otherwise, the line-up of east-meets-west mocktails will get you sorted.

Ready to fully immerse yourself in the festive spirit by dining and singing your lungs out at this unique concept at The Esplanade?

Dasha is bound to be a hit with discerning diners looking for modern Chinese cuisine and first-class entertainment facilities.
