Its dishes have been described by London’s foodies as a “flavour feast”, “a perfect exercise in creaminess and delicacy” and “authentically tasty”. Following on from the opening of Osh’s flagship branch in Knightsbridge in March, the Uzbek restaurant is all set to open its second branch at Dubai's La Mer, in August.

The Dubai venue, which will have a beverage and shisha licence, overlooks the beach and is set over two floors, with both indoor and outdoor seating. A classy retreat from La Mer’s bustling streets, the luxurious interior is all plush armchairs and couches, carpeted floors, oversized lamps and an overarching chrome ceiling light.

The food focuses on fusion Uzbek cuisine, with a few dishes from other Central Asian and Eastern European countries thrown into the mix. While the Dubai menu has not been fixed, some favourites we hope to sample include: surmi rolls (cabbage rolls with meat and truffle); red plum tomato salsa marinated for 24 hours with sushi ginger; duck and lemongrass shashlik; and Uzbeki plov (lamb with spiced rice, carrots, peppers and garlic); plus Polish angel wings (deep-fried pastry dusted with powdered sugar).
