The entire dining space is gorgeously wrapped in a New York-style atmosphere during the 1940s, full of sophistication and class. TOMA Brasserie features a leather-cushioned sofa, dim light, an intimate setting, jazz fusion tunes, a sweeping marble bar, and of course, a neat seating arrangement where discerning guests can immerse themselves in contemplating the busiest main road in the city in the dark wood mood. It doesn’t stop there. The air freshener and hand soap they use have a role to add up the venue for an atmosphere that’s truly relaxing and posh. Not to mention the friendly staff.
Sporting progressive Asian cuisine, TOMA Brasserie combines several Asian-inspired culinary concepts into high-quality dishes. The unapologetic use of authentic Asian ingredients makes each food a different identity and uniqueness from other premium restaurant bars. On top of that, modern processing techniques, Western influences, and out-of-the-box concepts were also included to make it even more show-stopping.
Crossing boundaries and culinary borders, TOMA Brasserie is transforming traditional Asian favorites into high-end fusion cuisine and libation. Every TOMA element has been consciously chosen to present the rare, the luxurious, and the refined.
