We went with reservation for 10pm and though there on time, had to wait by the bar till 11pm-no info how long to wait,just when we asked were told that there are still no tables, and no other service or apologies. Than, the 'best' part a young man saying that he was a Manger says that he just came now,... More

Okku is my go to "high end" restaurant in Dubai. The place never fails to deliver from the great service, cool atmosphere and more importantly..... the food! My personal favorite are the "scallops with truffle". I've been to Okku a number of times and I have always had a great night out. No complaints here. If you are up for... More

Musts.....baked avocado, crispy duck salad, scallops with truffle, Alaskan king crab, spicy tuna on crispy rice, seabass (new on the menu very light but packed with flavor) I could actually go on and on but these are my personal favs! Okku is perfect for first dates, business dinners or just hanging with friends. What's great about it is there is... More

We were asked if we wanted a no smoking table and we said 'yes'. 10 minutes later a few young rich kids sit down next to us and start smoking. A poor junior manager asks him to stop smoking to which a different manager undermines him and says to the diner that he can smoke. All the senior staff run... More

I was in Dubai with my sister and we had heard good things about Okku so decided to book a table there. We had an early booking, 8.30pm so it was very quiet when we arrived. The assistant manager greeted us at our table and gave us some recommendations from the extensive menu. The cocktail and food menu was vast.... More

What an amazing find. The food was just superb. Opted for the tasting menu. One of the best decisions of my life I must say. The sommelier Ankush was a real treat to talk to. But the food left you speechless. Can wait to be back.

Of course Dubai in its present form did not exist during the Jazz Age. But had it existed, and specifically this restaurant, then I rather think that Scott and Zelda would have frequented it. Delicious young things expose their fleshy delights in the sexy gloom. The cocktails are squiffy. The food is actually rather good. But my goodness, you must... More

I dined at Okku last night with my wife and we had a superb evening. We tried a tasting menus, focussing on their new menu and it was excellent. The black cod remains the best in town and the wagyu beef fillet was superbly cooked. The initial salad with truffle influences was a little boring, but the advocado flamed with... More

Both the place and the food were amazing ! You can enjoy here a pleasant and cozy place for having a very good japanese food. All the specialities are available and cooked with care. You better book in advance because the seated places are limited and the people expecting eating there are numerous. The prices are not the most affordable... More
