For year’s the Typhoo Restaurant of Au Cap has delighted Seychellois and tourists alike with delicious local cuisine with a Chinese flare. When the restaurant closed down a while back, the District of Au Cap had lost one of its key entertainment premises and a public license Restaurant.
This was until the Pillay R. Group of Companies took up the business venture and undertook upgrading works to the property. They have now rebranded the restaurant and bar into the “Asian Fusion” Restaurant. What makes this restaurant unique is that it is one of the very few restaurants on the island offering a fusion of Asian food.
“Asian Fusion” as it is aptly called, offers a casual dining atmosphere and a service based on the Singapore Chinese standard. What is amazing is how the owner gave a fresh look to the restaurant now named ‘’Asian Fusion.” The interior is an open and bright dining area and a fully stocked modern looking bar. One distinctive feature of the restaurant is the private dining room, ideal for corporate events and private parties.
