Located on the roof top garden of Orchard Central, Joie (pronounced ‘joy’) by Dozo Restaurant, presents a refreshing concept that specialises in modern meatless cuisine. Influenced by the new wave dining trend in Europe and Taiwan that focuses on uplifting and innovative natural fare prepared with the freshest vegetables, fruits and herbs, owner of Joie, Mr Huang Yen Kun looks to conjure the same fervour in Singapore.
Mr Huang and his team of chefs have been developing this concept for the past few years. In line with Dozo’s famous set menu concept, its unique presentation and creativity, and using many uncommon ingredients, diners can choose from an elaborate six-course lunch or seven-course dinner consisting of contemporary dishes with Japanese-European sensibilities and flavours. Guests will be challenged to put aside their misconceptions about meatless cuisine with their refined and original creations.
Surrounded by Orchard Central’s serene rooftop garden, Joie is a sanctuary above the bustle of the busy Orchard shopping district, affording sweeping views of nearby Somerset and Orchard Road. Upon entering the restaurant via the escalator from the 11th floor, guests are greeted by a luminous dining room with light streaming in from its floor to ceiling windows. Bronze and grey overtones dot the space with a contemporary chic ambience from the bronze light fixtures and the grey tiled floor. Diners can choose a seat along the plush leather-quilted banquette, luxurious velvet armchairs or at no additional cost, one of the five private rooms which seats four to sixteen people.
