Book in advance, especially during the weekend. The food is tasty (excellent squid and fresh salad), service is good, the restaurant itself very nice. On top of the L'Azurde hotel. Prices are reasonable for European standards, a bit on the expensive side for non-expats.

A nice find for a city with limited culinary choices. The ambiance was interesting and the food was good, although felt a bit heavy at the end. Definitely a nice restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.

Menabu is a rare jewel in Sana'a, serving high quality Japanese food. Service is excellent and the chef is always accommodating to vary selections. One of the best places to have a quiet dinner or to celebrate with friends. Your palate will be delighted.

Menabu is a well-hidden find on the top floor of the L'Azurde hotel. The menu is small but changes frequently so you're assured of something new each time. We had mostly sushi, which was excellent. Unlike so many other restaurants here, the service was also...More
