Fairmont Ajman opens Kiyi restaurant

Fairmont Ajman in the United Arab Emirates opened Kiyi (meaning “along the shore”), a traditional Turkish restaurant headed by chef Fahri Karatas.

Offering views of the Arabian Gulf, Kiyi was designed in a traditional Imperial Ottoman style with earthy colors and Byzantine mosaic patterns. Complementing this are chandeliers made from bronze spheres in varying sizes, splashes of azur on each table and traditional lanterns.

The restaurant, located on the lobby level of Fairmont Ajman, provides private seating areas, as well as an outdoor dining area by the beach.
