Very good Japanese fusion

Have eaten both dinner and lunch here a couple of times and never disappointed. More "fusion" than Japanese but the fusion food actually better than the classic Japanese food. Fish (try the seabass) is really good. Drink menu OK and no more overpriced than normal in Dubai. Service both efficient... read more

First up, we went during the middle of the week and OKKU did an amazing job from start to finish. I had to organize a small birthday and they were very accommodating from the very beginning. As we sat down for dinner, the recommendations made were on point. The servers allowed us to take our time in ordering and happily... More

This is a Japanese restaurant in the H Hotel on SZR. Unlike the very popular rival restaurant Zuma, the chefs in this restaurant can actually cook and also unlike Zuma you dont have to smell smoke while having a meal. Both very similar in the ambience with a bar area, modern beat in the background and table seating area with... More

It's a Japanese restaurant in H-hotel. It's a buzzing place. Lovely crowd and delicious food. It's more fun after 12 am. Do book your table in advance in weekend.

Fantastic brunch! I never thought food could take third place at brunch but Okku was amazing. Delicious food (tasty and plentiful) and non-stop booze (couldn't be more happy with the service) but what a brilliant atmosphere with the music of my life playing non-stop throughout the brunch. The place was packed with young people but to be fair anyone who... More

okku has by far one of the best business lunch deals around the trade centre/DIFC area. service was fantastic, ambient was charming but their food is phenomenal especially their ebi gyoza + miso black cod rice (super to die for and one of the best I've had in dubai)! business lunch starts from AED69 - 99 (depending on the courses)....

We start off on a shaky foot with Okku, a wrong offer was placed by the connector magazine. However the Manager surprisingly called us back and apologized (which is unheard of in Dubai). He even offered us a special discount. As soon as we walked into the beautiful setting we were awed by the ambiance, as soon as we were... More
