Great for a leisurely dinner

Great concept - bbq your own dinner at the table. There is a small salad bar and then a whole host of raw meat (steak and chicken) and seafood (prawns, salmon, fish fillets etc) then a few vegetables to grill. The all you can eat and drink package is a steal at about 200DHS a person. Desserts leave... read more

My husband and I always come back for their kalbi. We can grill and eat kalbi the whole night, ignoring all other dishes in their buffet. Although the price is a bit high for us, we make it a point to come back at Sumibiya on special occasions. Ambiance was also good and service was great.

I've been a fan of Sumibiya for years due to its novelty. Back then the buffet tables were fuller. They've raised their prices (140 dhs for food only) but added a soft beverage option for 10dhs more. The cooked dishes were now down to salads, a rice dish and soup. The grilling meat options were still the same selection: salmon,... More

After trekking Deira side of Dubai to eat here last night for my birthday, It was a disappointing experience. We used to go to this hotel a lot 12 years ago and I had fond memories but because of variety of new restaurants in New Dubai, we haven't been back for awhile time except last night because I was craving...

As other reviewers have said, it's somewhat of a hidden location, but once found never forgotten! Brilliant buffet style concept for your food which you then return to your table to cook. Staff are brilliantly attentive and really look after you. In my opinion it is very good value for money as "all you can eat and drink" was just... More

If you like meat and loads of it, this is the place to go. Attentive staff, small and personal. Would have been hugely popular if it was in a better location as not many people know about. But to be honest, I prefer to this restaurant to remain a hidden gem so I won't have any problems booking when I... More

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst staying in another hotel in the area and wished we'd found it earlier as we'd probable have eaten here a lot! The restaurant offers a set price option whereby for around £30 per person you get an all you can eat buffet of various fish and meats as well as house wines and beers.... More

Sumibiya has always been a favorite when it comes to alternative dining in Dubai. It is Korean/Japanese themed barbecue that diners cook themselves. There's a selection of raw beef, seafood, chicken and vegetables for grilling plus kimchi and salads as well as rice and soup. Service is good and efficient. The venue cozy. The only drawback? This should be your... More

Once you get past the usual Creek traffic and the semi chaotic valet entrance to Radisson BLU, tuck yourself in zen-like bliss for 180dhs (food and a limited selection of sodas and alcoholic drinks). Each table has a built in grill and diners can dig in to the selection of starters (Korean style pickles and the usual salads plus soup,... More

Sumibiya is a nice quiet place where you can cook your own food. Weird concept but fun when doing it with a special someone. Now you can see for yourself if your significant other can truly cook!! :) It's a small place full of smiles... Everyone is helpful and willing to ensure you are well satisfied. They have it where...
