It could be b/c I am an American and the waitress was Eastern European with an heir of wanna-be european culturally superiority. Either way, my wife and I went on the all-you-can-eat sushi and the food was incredible. some of the best sushi i have had, including multiple NoBu locations. However, the service was so obnoxiously bad, it made the... More

Went there for a nice drink and chat as they play cool house tunes on Tuesdays. We are sitting on a high table, the waiter is serving our 2nd round, he accidentally spilled almost the whole drink on my partner. it was an embarrassing moment but accidents happens. what was surprising that he didn't bother to help her with napkins...

One of my favourite places in dubai. Definitely recommend the cocktails, they present them so well. The food, especially the sushi is some of the nicest I have had before. the ambience too is lovely, seems very stylish but for a reasonable price!

I don't like how this bar is set up and managed. Upstairs, downstairs, two sections in each. I'm from California and this bar feels like it belongs in LA- it's not a good thing. Hostesses aren't friendly and welcoming. We were shown the main part of the bar (downstairs) which is small and was filled to capacity. Arrived at approx... More

For the first timers dont forget to make reservation. The bottle service and personnel quality is top shelf. Even we requested a drink which is not included in the menu they provided without a hitch. Music was good for a lounge bar. Great place to spend time with your friends highly recommended.

first timers for husband and I. Great ambience and friendly staff. Great value for sushi. The rounds kept coming and we got to choose our favorite type, of which they kept bringing more of. Went early around seven, so was intimate and quiet. More people came as night progressed.

Really is nothing special at all. Its like a common Leicester Square student bar in London. The drinks menu was average although fairly priced and the vibe was all just a bit cheap. The service was good but we probably wont be back anytime soon nor will we be recommending it, there are MUCH nicer and classier places in Dubai.

Part of the JW Marriott Marquis complex in the Business Bay district, this is a good bar for couples, work colleagues and friends. The music is good, the place has a moody feel about it (quite dark inside) and the drinks selection is extensive. The bar itself has a glass cabinet running down the length of it with some interesting... More
