Great meal and great staff! A special thank you to Servers, Brendan and Jane for the outstanding service. Visited Kiku three times during my week's stay in Dubai; the sushi and steak were outstanding as usual. Kiku never disappoints! You will enjoy any meal from their menu. If you're unsure, the staff will help you pick one out. I look... More

I was invited for dinner here few days ago. There were some work at the car park so it was a little confusing where we could park. It's also strange that there is no direct access to the restaurant from the Meridien Hotel Lobby. There were only 2 of us so we decided to order Yose Nabe (Sukiyaki/Steamboat). We were... More

Good selection on the menu, diskes are reliable, both the cooked and the sushi/sashimi dishes. The restaurant does not "wow" however, some the staff spek poor English and the place lacks soul.... OK for a reliable Japanese lunch/dinner, do not expect more

The best Japanese food I've had recently. Lovely little restaurant in the Le Meridien Village with very great staff. Food was absolute dynamite. We had spicy sushi, fish cakes, kimchi and Japanese beer. Great discovery in Old Dubai, will be going back for sure. So much to try on the menu.

High end sushi at a pretty reasonable price for Dubai. Good selection of fish (not the most amazing selection in Dubai, but good enough), including a few non-standard items. Everything we had was fresh and good quality. Some interesting pork-belly appetizers in addition to standard items like dumplings, seaweed salad, tempura, etc. Only real gripe is that the space around... More
