Mr Chow isn’t the only fine dining establishment dipping its toe into the burgeoning Middle-Eastern market.

The Japanese-inspired menu will retain popular signature dishes, such as duck salad and black cod, with new additions expected to have a Saudi twist using seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients. And if the Mayfair restaurant is anything to go by, Sexy Fish Riyadh will be delightfully decadent. Ask our Bookings team for more information about the grand opening.
