Starters


Our meal commenced with the Sweet Corn Soup, a dish that delivered a balanced blend of sweetness and savoury flavours. While we thought this was competently prepared, the soup could have been more varied in culinary innovation; however, it was more than enjoyable.

Along with being visually appealing, the Crispy Duck Salad at TORA stood out for its freshness and flavour, offering a delightful blend of crisp textures and savoury notes.

Main Course

The main course selections included the Dim Sum Royal and Stir-fried King Prawns and cashews with Rice. The Dim Sum Royal was a satisfactory nod to traditional Cantonese cuisine, suitable for Dim Sum enthusiasts.

The Stir-fried King Prawns and cashews with Rice were excellently executed, offering a harmonious blend of flavours and textures. We would happily return just for this dish!

Desserts

For dessert, the Banana Fritters and Sweet Buns were chosen. Both were enjoyable, with the fritters particularly notable for their pleasing texture. The desserts concluded the meal satisfactorily, after which we enjoyed the view whilst sipping some excellent cocktails.

Cocktails: A Highlight of the Experience


The cocktail menu at TORA is a standout feature, showcasing a creative array of drinks. Among these, the Yunnam cocktail, priced at €13, deserves special mention.

This cocktail, a blend of Dragon Vodka, Orchid Syrup, Rose Petals Tea, and Lime Juice, was a highlight of the dining experience. Its unique combination of flavours was both refreshing and harmonious, complementing the Oriental theme of the cuisine.

We highly recommend the Yunnam to our readers for its exceptional balance and flavour profile.
