Bushra by Buddha-Bar is a new concept for Levant cuisine. Impressive archways, stylish flooring and detailed carvings in the timber doors are motivated by past great civilisations and religions, and the stylised patterns and geometry are resplendent of Middle Eastern architecture. The colour palette is influenced by the warm hues of the Arabian mountains rich in copper, rust, yellow and purple.
The outside terrace is enhanced with golden tan pouffes, which glimmer as the sun sets over the Arabian Gulf. Carved wood mashrabiya ceiling detail pays homage to the region's heritage and affords welcome attention to detail. Traditionally styled lighting, oversized seating and plump cushions give a sense of luxury.
