Tavaru’s New Concept: Celebration of Teppanyaki & Bento Cuisine

Following Velaa Private Island‘s brief closure for a general refurbishment to maintain a high standard of facilities and services, Tavaru is re-opening with a brand new concept, offering distinguished Japanese cuisine and a menu that celebrates Bento and Teppanyaki grill cuisine.

Housed within the tallest building in the Maldives, Tavaru’s newly implemented Bento Box concept pays tribute to our chefs and their flavorful expert Japanese skills, showcasing the master in craft and innovation of cultivating bold creative, sharing dishes in a modern light.

Reflecting a creative identity with an overall simplistic ethos, the Bento Box encourages diners to fall in love with food all over again; presenting traditional, time-honored flavors in a fresh and contemporary way. Diners at Tavaru can choose from a selection of meat, seafood or vegetarian Bentos; each carefully curated to include a soup, salad and delicious main course, and topped off with dessert.

Grilled on an iron-plate under diners’ noses, the Teppanyaki grill will allow those to experience the very finest Japanese inspired delicacies. Watch the talented Chefs as they slice, season and create bespoke menus with particular flair and finesse. From juicy beef and tender chicken to the masterful combination of fresh vegetables or delicious seafood such as lobster, shrimp and baby octopus, there is a dish for everyone to enjoy.

The gastronomic journey starts with a choice of organic miso soup , unagi or vegetarian maki, followed by a variety of main courses including Teppanyaki meat, seafood or mixed platters, as well as a vegetarian option, all accompanied by a selection of the finest sauces, rice and vegetables. Each option also includes a delicious dessert to enhance and complete the unique flavor in each menu. Welcome and indulge in the fascinating world of Tavaru Teppanyaki.
