Yakii-Asian Tapas Bar & Restaurant, a pioneering culinary establishment, is excited to announce its grand opening in the bustling heart of Deccan, Pune. The restaurant aims to redefine the city’s dining landscape by providing an unparalleled Asian gastronomic experience.
Yakii represents a unique culinary destination born from Hrishikesh Baravkar’s profound grasp of Pune’s evolving culture and the growing appetite for Asian cuisine. The restaurant effortlessly fuses the allure of tropical beachside vibes with the elegance of Dubai’s desert, delivering a genuinely global experience right here at home.
Conceived by visionary architects Hrishikesh Baravkar and Shashank Shirole, Yakii showcases an interior palette characterized by inviting, earthy tones, thoughtfully selected to create a warm and cozy atmosphere. Within the restaurant, a seamless blend of wood, steel, and brick materials comes together in an artistic choreography, enhanced by the presence of century-old plants and trees in its expansive open-air section. At Yakii, the culinary experience is defined by a fusion of small and large plates, as well as robata grills prepared over live flames, presenting an extraordinary dining experience. The thoughtfully curated beverage menu offers a refreshing twist with a generous dose of spirits, complementing the array of flavors.
Yakii takes immense pride in its thoughtfully curated menu, which showcases an array of distinctive dishes and cocktails, meticulously crafted to tantalize the taste buds and elevate the overall dining experience. Patrons have the opportunity to savor delectable options such as Korean Chicken, Tori Karaage, Togarashi Hummus, Kunji Lamb, and the one-of-a-kind KFC Chicken Truffle Oil Roll. In perfect harmony with the culinary offerings, Yakii presents an exquisite cocktail selection, including the Kuwa Sour, Kohi Press, Guava Tinkle, Yakii de la Casa, and Laccha Sting. Each dish and beverage has been painstakingly designed with an unwavering commitment to detail, ensuring an experience that is as bold, contemporary, and unmatched as Yakii itself.
“Yakii is not just a restaurant; it’s a culinary journey that transcends borders and traditions,” says Hrishikesh Baravkar, the man behind Yakii. “Rooted in the vibrant pulse of Pune, we’ve created a sanctuary where the exotic flavors of Asia meet the warmth of Deccan hospitality. We invite you to not just dine with us, but to become a part of our ever-evolving narrative,” he added.
