The first time I had sushi was at Tatami and it was a really good experience the food tasted great could not stop eating the rolls.The atmosphere is quiet nice too. The location is quite far located in Kuwait City but it's worth it, an ideal place if you want to go out on a date ;)

They have a large variety of good salads and sides. Try the seaweed chips. Delicious. However the sushi is not as great as I expected.

While it might not be the most authentic or most avant-garde, I like that, unlike most restaurants in Kuwait, Tatami is consistent on delivery quality food every time. Everybody that I take to Tatami has had something they like, whether it be the nori chips, or ginger infused water, or ginger tea, or any of the great dishes, there is... More

One of the best Japanese restaurants in Kuwait. The restaurant may be small in size, yet service is great, set-up is cozy, food is out of this world, and the Chef is extremely talented. I was surprised to find out that the food was in fact cooked by a Kuwaiti woman. I was expecting a Japanese Chef to come and... More

No matter where I go, Tatami has the best sushi ever. I tried almost every sushi place in Kuwait and abroad but Tatami beats them all. The service is great and the food is always hearty. The ingredients are fresh and the place is cozy. They should consider having another branch somewhere else. The meals might be a bit over... More

Everything you get order in this little cute restaurant is deliciously fresh, not oily and tasty. The teriyaki salmon is fantastic as the prawn and avocado salad. The service is also excellent. Really not one complaint. Good job

This restaurant is the essence of modern culinary delight. Tatami's Kuwaiti Chef does not miss a beat, whether it involves menu updates, culinary innovation, or quality customer service. She is a culinary genius in my humble opinion. Truly of international standards, Tatami is the perfect example of Japanese fusion food art....The way fusion was meant to be, without surrendering to... More
