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

Nothing disliked. The best Japanese food I had in Dubai, with a dedicated service and very good surprises, that i cannot mention (forgot the names). A Japanese friend made the order. Dante (easier to remember) is the chef running this place, and together with Mr Yang (Chinese) makes you feel at home. Excellent, even price-wise!

A visit to Dubai is not complete without a visit to one of my favorite restaurants. I've had salad, soup, steak, and sushi here and I've yet to be disappointed.
