JASIA is an Asian chef restaurant and sushi bar in Old Jaffa, which was born thanks to an old dream of two childhood friends born in Jaffa. The unique menu was created out of their great love for Asian food on the one hand and for the flavors they absorbed at their mother's house on the other. The result is interesting and exciting combinations of Asian dishes from the kitchens of Japan, Thailand, India and China, with hints from the authentic cuisine of Jaffa.
When old and new tell a story
Jasia is located in an ancient stone building of the Greek Orthodox Church - undoubtedly a special venue full of history and the background to the special story of the restaurant. We left the high stone walls exposed to remind us of the strength of the place. The walls display impressive arches, wooden beams and fishing ropes alongside Asian designs, expressing the connection between past and present.
Contemporary lighting give the entire space a modern touch and create a warm and unusual feeling. In the background you can hear world music of various cultures and conversations in different languages, demonstrating the open and welcoming nature of Jasia, where everyone has a place.
Jaffa. Asia. Love story.
The Jasia menu includes a variety of healthy dishes based on fish, seafood and meats, along with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free dishes. The link between old Jaffa and distant Asia is beautifully expressed in dishes such as tandoori chicken salad served with crispy beets or Pud Van Sen, sprinkled with roasted pistachio chips.
On the menu you will find plenty of classic Asian dishes: miso soup, eggroll, yekitori (salmon / shrimp / chicken), rice woks or noodles and the list goes on. Try the seafood casserole, the home-baked chicken schnitzels coated with crisp panko and the grilled dishes - from whole fish to entrecote. The impressive sushi menu includes interesting specials that we created alongside the possibility of DIY. For dessert we offer you a taste of the variety of the house desserts.
In Jasia you will find a rich and varied bar with selected Asian drinks such as sake, plum wines and quality Japanese beer. The cocktail menu was also adapted to Asia, and the flavors are especially surprising.
