About Us

If you’re seeking to explore flavours from the east, then look no further! Our Asian fusion cuisine will definitely get your taste buds tingling. Enjoy sumptuous dishes prepared by the stellar team at our award-winning TemptAsian Restaurant & Lounge, complemented by panoramic views of the Mediterranean skyline. Savour mouth-watering dishes bursting with aromatic flavours from the Orient that ensure a delectable dining experience.

Our Asian fusion cuisine is just that – a beautiful blend of tastes from all corners of the East, including Thailand, Vietnam, China and Kashmir, to Singapore, Indonesia and India. Each dish is carefully curated by our kitchen team, specialising in the different cuisines. The Asian food culture is very diverse, and one that gives us plenty of inspiration to play around with textures and flavours to create dishes for you to feast on.

Only the best of ingredients sourced from our reputable suppliers are used to fashion distinct plates, each boasting unique textures, tastes and aromas, faithfully representing each corner of the Orient. Go for bold meat dishes or delicate fish plates. Whether you’re in the mood for a hearty deep-fried fare or lean items, the choices are endless. If you’re a vegetarian, you will not be disappointed, either as our menu offers items suited to this dietary requirement. We also boast a delightful sushi range that will make any table burst with colour and flavour.

Our exceptional team strives to create the perfect ambience for you to enjoy your dining experience at our rooftop restaurant. Our elegant dining area with light, flowing sheers, dim lighting and impeccable service guarantees a calming atmosphere as you indulge in flavoursome Asian fusion dishes.

Contrary to dining at our award-winning restaurant, you can opt to taste the wondrous flavours of Asia in the comfort of your own home. Just a click away, choose your favourite items from our extensive menu and create your own sumptuous spread either delivered right to your door or picked up from our premises. Pull out your glitzy table runners, light some candles and wait for your feast to arrive. Uncork the wine, sit down and embark on a culinary journey to the Orient that will have you coming back for more.

Joseph Xuereb

Joseph Xuereb, our Executive Chef, has been leading the kitchen brigade of The Palace since it first opened its doors in 2007 and played a big role in creating TemptAsian, the award winning restaurant it is today. A Maltese chef who has a flair for cooking exquisite Asian dishes, Joseph was a protégé of an Executive chef when he first started his career. He claims his mentor was an immense influence in his career path and has encouraged him to try new types of cuisine, with new tastes, aromas and spices. This led him to create TemptAsian’s menu and its delicious signature dishes. Inspired by the diverse cultures and cuisines of Asia- from China, Japan, Thailand, India and a touch of Malaysia and Indonesia, the opportunities are endless with regards to flavours. The dishes which have created and are presented on the menu, are craved by repeater guests, who most of the time have their favourite dish, which transports them to a part of the Asian world. Joseph or ‘Chef’, as he is usually called, is very proud of his team and of the success they helped him bring to the restaurant.
