Kisaku is maybe not fancy, but what I care about in sushi place is quality. Of course Kisaku is not only sushi, but also interesting hot dishes and even tepanyaki (which I not tried, so no word about it) But what I tried was very good. And I keep coming back, which is another good sign ;) So - sushi... More

A friend of mine told us to try it, and this was a very good advise. This is definitely not the Best location, and the Al Khaleej Hotel is not super fancy, but the crew was extremely friendly, and the food was really excellent. Very wide selection of meals, nice pictures on the menu that are very tempting, and actually... More

I had no big plan for dinner, but I sensed a sushi craving (I even looked around lunch time at Yo! Sushi, not my cup of tea) ... so, I just looked around what was in my neighborhood and came across the reviews here and loved what I read. So, a short walk later I find this no frills deco... More

I've ben a regular customer of Kisaku for the past 2 & half years, it used to be my favourite sushi place in town. Unfortunately, the chef has changed, and along with it the entire experience. The sushis have lost their taste, the food has become oily and quite average. The staff has also changed and is nothing as attentive... More

Don't judge this restaurant by hotel entrance because it's another world when you enter Kisaku Restaurant. Food is very nice and fresh that you can choose from massive menu. Green tea ice cream is the best in Dubai.

Kisaku is a Japanese restaurant located in the Al Kaleej Palace on the 10th floor. The restaurant does not look. The decor is standard, with room for private dining, great room and funds restaurant, a "live" cooking by chefs for sushi. Contrario, it irritates me that two TV proposed japonese channels. We were 4 a Thursday night, a lot of... More

A Japanese friend of mine recommended this place and ever since I don't go anywhere else for sushi. The quality, flavor and taste are the best. And the place is always full of Japanese, always a good sign.
