Good but not special

Being at the top of Raddison Royal Hotel the restaurant has a nice view on Sheik Zayed Road and Burj Khalifa. The food is good but not special. I liked the food with a little exception: the rolls.

I understand that dim lighting in a Restaurant can be relaxing but this is ridiculous. You cannot see the food placed 1 foot away. I gathered some lights from nearby tables but it was still too dim. I ate quickly and left. ICHO is poor value. 6 small pieces of sashimi are 100 Dinars. I wouldn't visit a second time.

On the 50th floor of the Radisson Royal Hotel, the restaurant has an excellent view of Dubai. The food is also amazing with several options of suchi, sachimi, rools and appetizers. I recommend the dish with shiitake and shimeji (the only one option with both). It is terrific.

The food is good, the atmosphere is cozy, the view is nice ... All ingredients are present for a nice evening for a date. The dishes are excellent, well prepared, fresh and extremely tasty. Although we had to wait for quite a long time to get our food, the overall experience was great.

The food is good but the service could not be any worse. We requested a window table when we reserved. When we arrived they wanted to give us another table. Once complained they let us stand in the middle of all tables for at least 5 minutes until the assistant manager "john" decided we could have a window table at... More

Nothing special at the bar, could not afford Teppenyaki menus as... More

Really amazing views and venue and a really nice atmosphere. I have learnt over the years any restaurant that has an elevator to take you up one flight of stairs is gonna cost you and Icho is not different. The food is good and the service is also very good, so good that it almost becomes intrusive. perhaps you get... More
