Good .... for the price.... and Dubai

One has to keep in mind what this restaurant is, and where this restaurant is when making an evaluation. This is Dubai, where somewhere near 98% of the food is imported in large containers, and it is usually frozen. This is not Tsukiji /Tokyo, New York or London where of course the sushi is without... read more

We (my wife and 2x toddlers) went there twice over the Easter period. Being sushi lovers we opted for the all you can eat offer for around 100 AED each. The restaurant seems popular as there was a little bit of a wait (15mins) to be seated next to the moving belt. Decent variety on offer which also includes salmon... More

I'm sure this review will sound repetitive but oh well! I'm craving sushi and want to rave about Itsu Modern Japanese restaurant. When it comes to sushi I'm more of a sashimi and nigiri person. I always lean towards ordering traditional style sushi. Itsu is one of the best and arguably "The best" sushi in Marina . I've been coming... More

Good Quality sushi bar served on a moving belt for an economic fixed price. The decor is comfortable and staff are friendly/helpful. The only improvement they could make is to increase the range of fish available in the sushi.

I visited this little restaurant with my husband and my 10months old daughter for a quick bite. Food was good, and the staff was very friendly.

I consider myself a sushi fan and very much like the Itsu ambience and feel of their venue in Marina. The sushi is, by and large decent although let down in a couple of key areas. One, the rice is sticky and over-worked. It makes the rolls feel slimy and lacking in the firmness needed to showcase the middle. Second... More

We used to go here once a week before the renovation. Now after reopening we have tried twice, and will not return. The salmon is cut wrong and they try to use all the parts of the fish which results the pieces being chewy. Also, they put coloured artificial fish roe in most the makis. Fish is not fresh enough....

I visited Itsu again after several months away... the place has upgraded its decor (gone are the sad fishes that look at you as you ate, as if to say "you're eating my cousin" LOL). The same friendly staff. The chef immediately recognized me and, within minutes, served up my favorite: fried salmon bites with teriyaki sauce. Except this time,... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
