With design inspired by the charismatic wilderness of Africa…
Step into Abu Dhabi’s own jaw-dropping version of a dreamy African safari, complete with glitz, glamour and a legacy that is powering the launch of the Flamingo Collection by the Tashas Group, at The Galleria Al Maryah Island. Three thrilling concepts converge with a visual and sensory feast, from the second you walk through the doors: Flamingo Room by tashas, African Lounge and Collective Africa.
A distinctive experience expanding on its sister location in Dubai, The Flamingo Room by tashas welcomes you to a jaw-dropping, ‘Gram-tastic space with hypnotically gorgeous interiors. The brand, a South African import, is conceived and executed by founder Natasha Sideris and continues to build on its super success in the UAE, with incredible interiors and distinct design elements that promise to linger.
You can dig in to a super selection of dishes such as the Calamari Mozambique, Lobster Pasta, Prawn Arancini and lemon cake, as you soak in a seamless blend of flair, vibrancy and culture. Visual stunners, including a hand-blown glass installation by South African artist Mike Hyam, add to the restaurant’s incredible look.
