The setup

Vapiano is on the upper level of Yas Mall.

The space is littered with long, oak tables paired with a mix of low and high back oak benches make conversations easy, whether you’re dining with a plus one or the
entire family. 

The hostess is warm and the plastic cards used for ordering lend a tech-savvy approach to the ordering process.

If tech makes you anxious, there’s no need so just go with the flow, as there’s always a server to lend a hand.  

Choose what you want from the menu, then head right on over and place your order with the chefs at the cooking stations.

Kids, and grownups, love this part, as they get to
choose the ingredients, sauces and even their noodle preference. 

The food 

The starter of bruschetta, a mix of chilled tomatoes marinated in olive oil, garlic and basil on ciabatta bread is a refreshing way to kick things off.

Next, tuck into a made-to-order, half-half pizza. You could choose the chicken barbecue on one half and margherita on the other, satisfying both palates. 

The customised mains are n ample you may not of room for desserts. The alfredo with penne and chicken breast is creaminess at its best.

The pollo picante with pappardelle, pak choi, bell peppers, orange chilli sauce with added shrimp (the customised part) go down extremely well. 

The mains are paired with freshly squeezed lemon and mint juice and a mango passion mojito, respectively. 

Can’t fit in dessert (we no the pain), then enjoy the ambiance with a smooth cup of Americano.
