The approach to Gala Brasserie

It would be easy to go OTT about this one, for rarely do I find myself in the position of having virtually no adverse criticisms to make! Lets start with the dining area. It is a room of beauty that has a living wall of many varieties of leafy plants, a bar with a pelmet of golden Nacre (mother of pearl) and dotted about the room, fire boxes with a water feature beneath, not to mention the kitchen that is open to view. Many of the remaining walls are of folding glass. The comfortable furnishing, lighting, and table settings are all to a very high standard, even the background music was barely audible, as it should be.
All together I found the room tranquil, and a pleasure to dine in.

The staff that we interacted with were seeking to please, no more so than manager Sandra and our waitress Rocio. The Fusion menu includes dishes from Japan, Thailand and Singapore, plus a smattering of international fair for the less adventurous. Chef Gobin from Nepal puts his own twist to many of his offerings, from which we picked Tom Yum and Prawn Tom Kha soups, which, after an adjustment to the formers spiciness, were both delicious. In most Asian cuisines you make up your mains from several smaller dishes, not necessarily so in Gala Brasserie, for quite a lot here are mains in there own right such as the Teriyaki chicken with rice and Mountain Lamb with Garlic Spinach and a cream sauce that were our choice after asking Sandra for advice on our selections , both were very moorish, but try as we may, we could not quite finish them! To round off we shared Lemon Macaroons with caramel Ice-cream. Altogether a most enjoyable evening of which
we said Yes, Yes, Yes, to the question “will we return?”
Postscript: Just 4 days later we try their lunch menu, and it was every bit as good as the
a la carte!
