Staff were all fantastic. Value for money was brilliant. Highly recommended. Will definitely return... read more

That's my preferred Japonise restaurant in Dubai. I'm going there for the last 8 years. Tried so many places and still this restaurant keeps in its first place on my personal opinion. The ambiance could have been better. Unless you are at the tapaniaki table otherwise it makes you feel that you are sitting in the corridor. (: but what... More

We got a nice table for the 8 of us, after having had a nice Apéro at the patio (the frozen beer is a must). The service was very attentive and our chef exeptionally entertaining. They also had no problem that our girls shared a entree. The food was standard good Benihana quality.

Nothing really wrong with this restaurant but nothing stood out either. Ordered the miso soup which was just bland, bland, bland, Tried the Benihana salad which was a bit better. And finished with the chicken teriyaki which was the tastiest but again, didn't stand out at all. Our server was kind enough to offer us a free dessert from the... More
