I was delighted to be invited among Bahrain’s top bloggers to attend the #KJStyle by “Kooheji Jewellery” on their first bloggers event last September at their boutique in City Center.

I was invited to by Masaya Lounge to try out their food and dining experience, so here’s my review:
Newley opened Masaya Lounge is located in Adliya “restaurants area” next house boat Restaurant, I went on a weekday for dinner, but yet adlia is crowded almost everyday now!
I was welcomed by a friendly smile of a nice waitress.
Masaya’s menu is a galaxy tab, that show a variety of international selections, there’s almost everything for everyone
After placing our orders, we got this lovely basket of bread and butter
For appetizers, we have orders “Risotto Balls”… Tip: the more you dip it in the sauce the better taste it gets 🙂
Our main dishes were:
1- Alfredo pasta
2- grilled hamour
3- grilled salmon
My favorite was the Alfredo and the sauce of the grilled salmon 🙂
Unfortunately, there wasn’t anymore space for dessert, so if your going, make sure you make some space for it 🙂
Masaya Lounge also offers SHEESHA, on the second floor! I’m not a smoker so I will only go there for FOOD
You can follow Masaya on their social media channels, twitter and Instagram on: @masaya_lounge
Note that their staff are very friendly and their service is excellent 😉
