The food was good. The Japanese beer, Kirin, was good. What more can you expect? If I were in the same Hotel complex again I would certainly make for this restaurant.

I love sushi and sashimi and could eat it everyday. I travel constantly and love finding great Japanese. This is so highly rated by TripAdvisors that I thought I would be soloing in The Spot. I was not. Everything was mediocre. Maybe because I was dining alone at the bar? Will not return.

Nice japanese experience, even is some fish cuts wouldn't be served the same way in Japan, but it's surely among the no.1 sushi in Dubai (in Abu Dhabi there are better ones), avoiding all these "fusion style" dishes... Beside sushi and sashimi, the black cod is also very nice. A pity they never have fresh wasabi. Good and friendly staff.
