With a number of restaurants boasting of serving the best Japanese food, I did a little round up on some extremely fine dining restaurants serving the best dishes and came up with places which surely shouldn’t be missed in Dubai. If you too are a true Japanese food lover with a will to try the fanciest places in Dubai you came to the right place.
Zuma, DIFC – Could it even be possible not to have Zuma in this list? This restaurant has won tremendous number of awards simply by wooing their customers with the excellent dishes, no doubt it is expensive but surely worth every dirhams. Zuma is not only in Dubai but also a world recognized restaurant known for it’s outstanding Japanese food.
Must Try – Wagyu Beef with Truffle and Zuma’s Chocolate Fondant.
Toko, Vida Downtown – The Kardashian girl’s weren’t wrong when they choose to dine at Toko for one of their parties. After all Toko is a usual place to spot celebrities but they all come here for the fabulous food this place serves. One restaurant which I would never get bored of going would be this. I love the ambience, interiors and most importantly their passion to serve the best.
Must Try – Miso Salmon and Toko’s Tempura.
Nobu, Atlantis – This restaurant never seems to disappoint me, with a comprehensive menu you are bound to go back more then once and every visit here would be truly remarkable. To impress your date they even have a garden which resembles the Japanese theme of this restaurant. Nobu’s world wide fame is no new news so if you are in Dubai don’t forget to check out this impressive restaurant.
Must Try – Miso Black Cod, Wagyu Meat and Matcha Fondant.
Wakame, Sofitel Dubai Downtown – A fairly new restaurant but when it come’s to food they know the hidden textures and recipes which makes every foodie go ‘wow’. Firstly being mesmerized by the beautiful charm of this restaurant and then by the fantastic food this place should be the answer to all the people who expect nothing but the best on their plate.
Must Try – Truffle Teriyaki Baby Chicken and Wagyu Sirloin.
Novikov, Sheraton Grand Hotel – After having some glorious years in London and Moscow, Dubai was the right choice for their next branch. With the alluring interiors and the massive menu you might want to come more then once to tantalise your tastebuds with their stylishly presented food and the wondrous dishes. I will surely be trying this restaurant on my next visit to London to see for myself which one scores higher on overall experience.
Must Try – Bang Bang Scampi and Scallop Truffles.
Okku, H Hotel – Hidden in this hotel is not one but a few extraordinary restaurants including Play. My first visit to Okku’s Disco Brunch made me go their not once but twice in a span of a few months. Their enticing dishes works their magic on your hungry stomachs and are surely worth trying. If you are looking for a fun experience while you dine here, try out their Disco Brunch which is not less then a party.
Must Try – Miso Chicken and Fuji Tart
Buddha Bar, Grosvenor House – Taking away this year’s Times Out Award, Buddha Bar surely has the aura and charm to make you instantly love this place. With the peaceful and lit up Marina view and the massive Buddha statue you definitely have every bit of romance in this restaurant and the food is exceptionally top notch, don’t think it could get any better than this.
Must Try – Kung Pao Chicken and California Maki Rolls.
Tomo, Raffles – One thing Tomo has is the unbeatable view, come down to experience the beautiful sunset and you might end up even trying the scrumptious dishes they serve. View, food and style all in one place. A hidden gem in my opinion which is why this is my choice to experience Dubai’s scenic skyline and at the same time indulged in a satisfying meal.
Must Try – Grilled Salmon and Chicken Gyoza.
Hashi, Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa – Hashi restaurant in Armani hotel is not only known for it’s exquisite and chic interiors but also due to some of their most appealing and charming restaurants. Apart from Amal even Hashi is a Japanese restaurant which is very dear to me. With the picturesque view of the Dubai fountain and food which is divinely beautiful in texture and presentation. I definitely was taken back by Chef Jin’s genius dishes. This restaurant apart from it’s food also had one of the best service, ambience and a great Chef who is perfected the art of cooking nothing less then excellent.
