Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas is proud to announce the highly anticipated reopening of its esteemed overwater teppanyaki restaurant, Fire. Following an extensive transformation, Fire emerges with an elevated aesthetic, an expanded seating capacity, and a tantalising new menu.

Renowned for its fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisines, Fire has long been a guest favourite at Anantara Kihavah, where it forms a popular component of the resort's signature SEA.FIRE.SPICE.SKY. dining complex with its quartet of distinct dining experiences.

The revamped restaurant embraces a fresh and modern look while preserving and honouring its distinctive high dome ceiling design which was inspired by the shape of a cuttlebone, an integral part of the original restaurant's structure. The enhanced sense of arrival from the restaurant entrance promises to elevate the overall dining experience, creating lasting memories for Anantara Kihavah's esteemed guests. With seating for 16 guests, a highlight of the distinctively designed venue is the theatrical teppanyaki display so expertly performed by the chefs.

One new feature is an extended overwater structure which has been seamlessly connected to the original restaurant. Featuring a raised ceiling under a thatched roof, the structure is complemented by a dramatic chandelier, and showcases an expansive sushi counter along with additional seating for another 20 guests. The expanded seating capacity ensures that more guests can savour the restaurant’s culinary delights while taking in the breathtaking panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.

Another highlight of Fire's reopening is the introduction of an all-new menu featuring a curated selection of sake and other specialty beverages. Well-versed in the art of Japanese and Peruvian cuisines, the restaurant’s talented chefs are ready to delight guests by taking them on a gastronomic journey that combines precision cooking techniques with vibrant flavours.
