The Ivy Asia Cardiff Celebrates Its 1st anniversary

The Ivy Asia Cardiff is celebrating its 1st anniversary with an evening of celebrations, a limited-edition birthday cocktail and a new menu.

To mark its special milestone, on Friday 22nd September the glamorous destination restaurant will enjoy live entertainment and a limited-edition Anniversary Cocktail for guests to enjoy while dining.

To coincide with turning one, the restaurant is also launching its new Autumn menu with seasonal dishes including chilli beef with shisho, cucumber and lime; black pepper and szechuan glazed chicken with asparagus and bamboo shoots; and, grilled salmon fillet with teriyaki pickled daikon, cucumber, sesame and spring onion.

Matt Tomkins, general manager of the Ivy Asia, Cardiff, said:

“We’re delighted to be celebrating our first anniversary in Cardiff, following what has been a tremendous year. It has been great to see so many guests visit us whether it’s for a relaxing retreat from a day’s shopping, an indulgent meal surrounding a special occasion or a refreshing cocktail late into the night. We look forward to celebrating with our team and guests on the 22nd and building on our success in the coming months and years.”

Opening last autumn, The Ivy Asia has quickly become a hit in the city centre serving incredible Asian-inspired dishes for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, plus exotic cocktails and live entertainment late into the night. Located on the Hayes in St David’s Shopping Centre, it offers all those who visit an experience they’ll remember forever.

The venue, which caters for 166 guests both indoor and on its terrace, suits a number of occasions, date nights, celebratory dinners, lunch with friends. As well as a bar where you can sit to enjoy its exotic cocktails, there is a DJ booth to entertain guests and a sushi bar, where dishes are prepared in front of guests.

Fitted with elegant yet vibrant interiors, including The Ivy Asia’s signature green onyx flooring and large cherry trees, the Instagram-worthy space includes a DJ booth, beautiful terrace, and a sushi bar, where dishes and delights will be prepared before guests’ very eyes.
