YTL Hotels’ The Gainsborough Bath Spa Launches New Malaysian Fusion Menu, Paying Homage to its Asian Roots

Friday 15th Mar 2024 |

Luxury five-star city sanctuary in the heart of Bath, The Gainsborough Bath Spa by YTL Hotels is a modern icon of luxury wellness, combining the rich history of the thermal waters in Bath with the YTL brand’s Malaysian heritage to offer a unique wellness experience in its Spa Village. Now, The Gainsborough Bath Spa is paying homage to the brand’s heritage through its food, with the launch of a new ‘Far East Meets West’ dinner menu

Including irresistible dishes from the brand’s sister restaurants both in Malaysia and Japan, this delectable new menu is not to be missed for both locals and overnight guests alike and is available to book in the elegant Gainsborough Brasserie. Aiming to showcase the best of Bath’s local produce whilst fusing both modern and diverse cooking techniques from Malaysia, the new fusion menu uses common Malay ingredients such as chilli, citrus fruits and saffron. Gourmands will be transported to the Far East when savouring these heartwarming age-old recipes where each ingredient is the freshest of the season. 

Starters include the signature dish, the Dancing Prawns coated in a secret house-made citrusy aioli emulsion as well as the Char-grilled Satay skewers, cooked fresh over a coal fire and coated in a spicy chunky peanut sauce. For mains, why not tuck into the Roti Cani with Lentil Curry, a light and fluffy grilled flatbread served with a spiced lentil curry or the Free-range Chicken Rendang, a fragrant turmeric and chilli coconut dish. To complete the hotel’s perfect fusion of Malaysian and European cuisine, the hotel will also be offering a menu of speciality pastas such as a Miso Lobster Linguine, a spicy miso-marinated dish or the Yukibana Creamy Sashimi Pasta. Alongside this, The Gainsborough Brasserie menu will also feature European favourites such as a Classic Caesar Salad or Cream of Wild Mushroom for starters, traditional English Market Fish and Potatoes or a Charred Beef Short Rib for mains as well as Pappardelle Angus Ragu as part of the speciality pasta dishes.

Diners can also make a night of it and book a stay at one of The Gainsborough Bath Spa’s sumptuous suites, boasting a period design and contemporary features, or enjoy sampling the exotic menu paired with experiencing the treasured mineral waters of the hotel’s Spa Village as part of a revitalising spa break. 

Nightly rates at The Gainsborough Bath Spa start from £290 on a room-only basis.
