Even though it's not very affordable, i recommend going to Buddha Bar at least once during your stay. First for the delicious and orignal sushi experience and second for the ambiance.

All four of us enjoyed great food, great atmosphere and music. Service however was non existent throughout our dinning experience. Poor training is the cause, for staff attitude was very kind. Nicolas

Have been here several times and the food quality is always great. The staff are friendly and the place has a great atmosphere. You need to book a few days in advance though as its always fully booked.

Unbelievable experience, the food was incredible, I would definitely recommend choosing a sushi platter for mains. The staff were on the ball and very polite, but best of all was the ambiance of the place, with the ginormous Buddha looming over you it makes a meal to remember Check out my recent blog post on my visit http://alittlebitoflifeerh.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/buddha-bar.html
