“Meisei” Japanese Fine dining in Bahrain

i was honored to be one of the first people to try out the new items in Meisei (Japanese fine dinning restaurant in Bahrain), honestly it was my first visit to the restaurant, though im a huge fan of Japanese food! i have heard lots of different feedbacks about it, from bad to good to excellent to the best Japanese restaurant in Bahrain.

during our visit, Chef Michael prepared LOTS of new dishes for us, including some of the current available dishes (below are some pictures with my feedback and rating), we had pleasure meeting the great mind behind these creative dishes Chef Michael who have spoke about his expreciance in tasting different types of food worldwide, along with his experiance of working in Bahrain for the last 12 years (FYI, he was the chef of Mirai), Chef Michael also talked about his passion, inspiration and the quality of ingredients he uses.

before we start with the pictures, lets clear things out… lots of people dont know how to pronounce Meisei, we have asked them and it was (ME-SAAY) there you go…
