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

Visited Okku for the first time as part of our company's annual dinner. It was a black tie event so we were all dressed up to the nines. The restaurant is not very spacious. The bar is alright, but smoking was allowed indoors which turned me right off. Pros: - You can check any extra bags at the reception and... More

We went for dinner with some friends and we had an excellent dinner. Delicious tuna and salmon tartares with crisps. Scallops skewers were great but the best dish was probably the yellow cod marinated in sake and grilled, that was really amazing.

I have eaten there twice and whilst it is very expensive the food is worth the money. Sadly, the staff think they are doing you a favour serving you and for that reason I wouldn't recommend anyone going there. It is a big shame but Okku is another Dubai place that thinks it is superior to the customers who are... More
