Shiro; which means “Castle” in Japanese, is a dramatic soaring space that immediately captures the imagination and stretches the senses. The towering interior is finished in a unique combination of natural stone, woods, slate, leather, bamboo and velvet complemented by shimmering lotus pools, soft furniture and subtle lighting. The scale is impressive but so is the attention to detail. Raw smoky finishes combine with soft furnishings in a colour palate ranging from rust and caramel to rose.
Shiro’s ability to stimulate your senses continues with their diverse cuisine and sophisticated bar. Inspired by the fiery orient, the menu offers an eclectic mix of Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Thai gastronomy that includes a wide range of sushi, sashimi and Cantonese dim sum to tempt even the most discerning of palates. If that doesn’t appeal to you, then perhaps the entertainment at one of it’s live Teppanyaki tables might. The signature cocktails there are international with an Asian twist complemented by a substantial wine list.
