One of the UAE's South American restaurants is bidding adios after more than two years in business, it was revealed this week.

Aji, the Peruvian eatery located in Dubai's beachfront Club Vista Mare destination, is shutting up shop at the end of May, it announced on its social media pages.

"We are saddened to announce that we will be closing our doors by the end of this month," a statement on the Aji Facebook page reads.

"We want to thank all our guests and the community for supporting us throughout this wonderful journey of two and a half years. Let's make our closing as epic and celebratory as our opening. See you all in the next few days with exciting closing offers."

Aji, which opened on Palm Jumeirah towards the end of 2016, is noted for its Peruvian-Japanese fusion menu, with dishes such as salmon and togarashi tacos, maguro Nikkei ceviche and yuzu cheesecake.

Aji has not yet confirmed if it is closing for good, or relocating to another venue in the city.

The restaurant currently sits alongside other Club Vista Mare dining destinations such as The Tap House, Breeze Beach Grill and Ibn Al Bahr.

Aji's closure follows last week's news that popular Latin American restaurant Bu! in Abu Dhabi will shut at the end of this month.

“All good things must come to an end,” their post reads. “It is with a heavy heart we announce that we will be closing our doors by the end of this month.

“We are so grateful for all of you who chose to make memories with us and everyone who has contributed to the success of Bu!”

While they are yet to announce the official closing date, a spokesperson confirmed the restaurant would serve its last meal by the end of May, and would be offering customers deals over the coming days.
