Chef Azmin’s motto has always been: “When you dine at my restaurant you are traveling through the world’s markets with your palate, and you don’t even need a passport.” Now, Chef Azmin Ghahreman opens global portals to diners and shoppers who visit him at Sapphire Laguna.

He is well-known among industry professionals and diners alike for quality. He grew up in a large, extended family and a food culture in which real pleasure was derived from feeding people, and seeing them enjoy the food and the experience of eating. “That’s what life is all about,” he’d say. His global market cuisine strikes a balance between comfort food and innovative, creative tastes.

The Menu

Food & Drink

While the cuisine at Sapphire Laguna is characterized by Ghahreman’s distinctive international style, its cornerstone is the freshest possible local ingredients. The evolving menu changes seasonally and often – based on what is freshly caught and available from small farms, nearby markets and artisan suppliers.

Lunches, dinners and weekend brunches off an array of entrees, among them: Summer Vegetable Gazpacho, Braised Pork Chile Verde, Seared Hamachi, Banana Curried Black Cod and Pan-Seared Beef Tenderloin & Lobster Ravioli.
