The Grand Richmond is definitely an innovative eatery, serving up delicious Italian cuisine in a modern and engaging fashion. One weekend a month, this one chef hat kitchen serves up Italian specialities in a traditional yumcha style.
As you are seated, you get handed your yumcha order sheet. Order as much or as little as you want because as the sheet gets taken away, they give you a fresh one to continue the feast. Its much more fun to order little bits at a time so you can adjust to your appetite.
Food is served up in small bite sized portions, allowing you to try more flavours without filling you up all at once.
Loved this concept and it was a fun and memorable dining experience. Service is attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend!
Next available time would be the weekend of the 13th and 14th of January 2018. Remember to book in!
