Last night I went to Okku at the 'H' Hotel on Sheikh Zayed road. First time I went was in DEC 2011, it was great. Went there many times since. Last night was the first time in a year that I'd been there. Was looking forward to it but was thoroughly disappointed in the service and the food. Quality has... More

We called to inquire about the possibility of an omakase course for a party of two as in their menu, it says they can only serve omakase for a party of four. No luck. We went to Okku anyway because the menu seemed quite interesting compared to other Japanese restaurants in Dubai. The first thing I noticed when I entered... More

If you like loud music and a dark, intimate environment, this is a good place for you. We didn't have enough candlelight to read the menu (printed in light brown), so had to use the cell phone, though we noticed the larger tables around the walls had better lighting. Tables are quite near each other, we could hear the whole... More

Excellent kitchen at Okku. Specially the sushis scallop and the truffles rice. Good service I love the wine list in the Ipad. The design is incredible specially the bar with the aquarium. A little bit boring on a Saturday not a lot of people at 9-10pm A very good Japanese restaurant in Dubai.

We first ate at Okku in january 2013 and visited again last week two years later. Still some of the best food I have tasted in Dubai, funky and cool bar with really good cocktails. Helpful and knowledgeable waiters and very fresh and tasty sushi - particularly the soft shell crab maki. Very good music put together by a DJ... More
