With live DJs playing throughout the evening, this stunning roof-top venue blends poolside bliss with signature, refreshing cocktails, flavored shisha, delicious light bites and the perfect place to unwind after work or at the weekend. For those wanting something a little livelier, Thursdays and Fridays are party nights. An urban oasis in the heart of the city – meet, eat, chill and thrill, I Kandy has it all.

Where:  Shangri-La Hotel, Shk Zayed Road.

Perfect for: Quick bites and drinks with a view

Our Order

Starters:
– Crispy Nachos
– Fries
– Hommous

Mains
– Sushi Bento
– Margarita Pizza
– Wasabi Prawns with mango salsa

Service: Ace Service. All the servers were sweet and extremely friendly. We were really taken good care of.

What we loved: The food was delicious and very large in portions. For the starters, we really liked the Crispy Nachos – a great starter option that was served with delicious guacamole and cheese I would definitely go back for these Nachos. The Sushi bento includes a selection of five different types of sushi, and oh my goodness they tasted so good that we couldn’t help but order another plate. The sushi at IKandy is definitely a bit different but good in its own way. The Margarita Pizza was served super hot with the right amount of cheese, just how we like. Finally, the Wasabi Prawns with mango salsa that we ordered 2 portions of even though one portion is good for 2 people was beyond enjoyable. We really liked how there’s a mix of cuisines. If you are feeling a bit middle eastern you can order from their iKandy Arabian Delights, their Hommus is very tasty. They also have a selection of Gourmet Pizza’s and then there’s a Sushi/light bites / Hot Rocks option.

What we didn’t like as much:  The Calamari was a bit different in terms of taste than the ones we usually order elsewhere. If you don’t like the typical squid fried ones you may enjoy this one that comes with a dip. The only drawback here was the food takes a bit to arrive, but the ambiance, weather, and good company make it better. Wish they could start the music a bit earlier, as the DJ plays some really good commercial music.

What we recommend:

  • Sushi Bento
  • Wasabi Prawns
  • Crispy Nachos

Ambiance: Starts to get crowded by 7 – 8 PM. Chill & cozy vibes. Perfect for after work gathering sessions. They have a DJ that starts playing around 9PM.
