The initial impression was good, however one thing shocked me as I have never seen this before - while taking our first order the waiter who took care of us sat down on the chair next to me saying "Sorry, I am tired" and he took the order from us while sitting. If you are after very good Japanese restaurant,... More

If you're looking for the most delicious, best quality sushi in Dubai with a warm lounge environment then Okku is one of the best choices you have. Their price is actually friendlier than most reviews have made it out to be. I went with a friend and had almost seven rolls of sushi, some sashimi and drinks and paid 650... More
