Miami, Florida - The Restaurant at The Setai

Hands down one of the top five best dining experiences of the year! The Restaurant at the Setai ticks all of the boxes: service, striking and tranquil zen ambience, sense of pride in the kitchen, helpful and devoted waitstaff and superb, flavorful and inventive dishes. Menu items transport you through China, Thailand, Singapore, India, Indonesia and Malaysia. Order from a menu (and a kitchen) that is divided into five sections: The Wok, The Steam, The Tandoor, The Curries and The Rotisserie & Grill, each style of cookery prepared by its own individual chef. Sit at one of the tables that jut out from the open kitchen and watch as your meal takes shape by these masters of Western and Asian cuisine.
