“In our considered view, there simply isn't anything like DUSK as a Halal establishment anywhere in Essex. And given the breadth of vision and extent of their ambition, they have all the ingredients in place to make waves within the UK Halal restaurant scene.”

The It Lister

“Set just off Ongar Road, this modern restaurant/shisha lounge combines authentic cuisine with molecular gastronomy to provide taste with added wow factor. DUSK is undoubtedly setting the bar on how to run a unique and quirky restaurant.”

Essex Live

“The 15 Essex restaurants and pubs celebrities love to wine and dine in. Dusk is an incredibly popular restaurant in Brentwood. They offer Mediterranean and Asian food that according to their website will give you a gastronomical experience like no other in Essex.”

East Life

“Asian fusion restaurant, Dusk, is on track to establish itself as Brentwood’s hottest new dining destination. Home of TOWIE, fake tan, glitz and glamour, Brentwood has its fair share of popular dining establishments. However the word (and taste) on everyone’s lips is Dusk.”

“The Lady Gaga of Indian cuisine. With each of its dishes bringing different tastes from around the world, whether it'd be Indian, Mexican, English or Chinese, there really is something for everyone, even the fussiest of eaters. Dusk is a charming and elegant restaurant with friendly staff and tasty unique dishes.”

Big Hospitality

“With a dry bar, shisha lounge and a former Great British menu chef duding Mediterranean and Asian cooking with molecular gastronomy, Dusk could become one of Essex’s most eccentric dining destinations.”

Essex Life Mag

“One of the county's newest restaurants opened its doors this summer and it looks like being a big player on the local foodie scene. Dusk is a 300-seat, rather plush a la carte restaurant and shisha lounge.”

Veggie Vision

“One word…. WOW. From time to time somewhere REALLY impresses me. And DUSK in Brentwood has it all…. including a massive WOW factor!”

Essex Foodies

“Mid-July saw the opening of one of Essex’s hottest, most prestigious restaurants, which we were thrilled to be invited to. The evening promised glamour & sophistication, which it undoubtedly delivered.”

As of March 24th, under government guidelines we had to close down the restaurant spaces and change the DUSK dynamic to fit in with the course of this pandemic and the challenges it brought to the hospitality industry. From offering free tea and coffee to all NHS workers at the forefront of Covid-19 to delivering freshly cooked meals and cases of bottled water to the NHS and the vunerable — we’ve kept busy supporting key workers and made some incredible hard working frontline staff smile this week and boosted our NHS across our nation.

Throughout April we managed to deliver over 1000 meals to seven hospitals and four care homes across Essex and London and want to say a huge thank you to Chef Stephen Gomes, the team at Kushi Restaurants and our Logistics team Essex Event Crewing for making it all happen. Also we owe a big thank you to our loyal guests that have donated and helped through these tough times.
