Emaar adds Toko in Vida Downtown to portfolio

Emaar Hospitality Group is launching Toko in Vida Downtown, a contemporary Japanese dine-in that presents Izakaya dining of promoting social interactions in its finest traditions.
Set in Downtown Dubai, Toko is for connoisseurs of Japanese cuisine with a trendy new ambience.
The Toko brand first opened its doors in 2007 in Sydney, and quickly set a benchmark for contemporary Japanese dining.
Toko at Vida Downtown has an intimate restaurant and lounge setting, expansive terrace and a mezzanine private dining area.
Matthew Darwon, the celebrated Australian architect who designed Toko Sydney, is the mind behind Toko Dubai too. He brings a sense of traditional aesthetics with a creative twist that is central to the Toko identity. He draws on a minimalist neutral palette of natural timbers and streamlined joinery, with Reni Kung lighting accents.
Olivier Harnisch, chief executive of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “Toko Dubai has redefined the Japanese cuisine experience with its contemporary interpretation and inimitable presentation style. It complements the philosophy of Vida to serve as social hubs for the young and trendy. The addition of Toko Dubai further strengthens our Lifestyle Dining division, which is focused on delivering exceptional and memorable dining choices. Toko Dubai will delight Japanese food enthusiasts as well as those who want to discover the current trends in dining at one of the city’s trendiest restaurants.”
In addition to the main restaurant setting, Toko Dubai’s lounge overlooks the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard with intimate lounge booths and an expansive open design. It will serve beverages designed by the Toko Sydney team in addition to a full dinner menu.
Toko Dubai will feature live music and a deejay daily bringing the vibes of a social gathering to the lounge. Further, a private Toko garden and terrace enables guests to enjoy a full-dinner menu in a Japanese-style garden environment. The garden has calming water features, floating Japanese umbrellas, and Bonsai trees.

Message of Ambassador Khan Hasham Bin Saddique

In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful.
On this auspicious occasion of 88th National Day of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, I, on behalf of all Pakistanis, congratulate and felicitate wholeheartedly the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the people of KSA.
Pakistan and Saudi Arabia have historically enjoyed brotherly relations that reflect the sentiments of the people of both countries for each other. Saudi Arabia is considered their spiritual home by the Pakistanis and they admire the exemplary services provided to the pilgrims.
Saudi Arabia is home to more than 2 million Pakistanis who are appreciative of the hospitality of the Kingdom and its people. The two Holy Mosques and the largest community of expatriates working in the Kingdom generate unique inspiration and motivation for Pakistanis for their gratitude and affection toward Saudi Arabia.
Over the years, the Kingdom has progressed impressively and attained a vital position in global affairs, guided by its visionary leadership. The Kingdom is playing a leading role in the affairs of the Islamic Ummah by supporting the cause of peace and stability.
We are very happy to see KSA embark on Vision 2030; indeed, a road map for rapid development and transformation. Pakistan will InsaAllah be a partner in this enterprise as the goals envisaged in the Vision would usher a new era of prosperity in the region.
I would like to convey the best wishes and prayers of Pakistani brethren for the peace, security and progress of the Kingdom. Further, the government and people of Pakistan stand firmly with Saudi Arabia and look forward to further strengthen bilateral relations for benefits of our people.
Long live Pakistan, long live Saudi Arabia and long live Pakistan-Saudi friendship.
