From the moment you enter, you are in a World of perfection and service. Food and wine are served with excellence and all the grace of the the Asian World. Upstairs is a wonderful cigar lounge fordrinks - and cigars - for those who enjoy that after dinner. All in all - 5 star night for us.

Sorry it took me so long to write this review, this has to be my favourite for Dubai. I mean the theme and decorations is insanely good, the food was amazing and I was shocked to learn I do actually like some types of fish while not realising what I was eating lol.

Had a dinner hear on our return to Dubai and it was just as good as the first time we visited. Superb food and service, puts the London Buddha Bar to shame. Highly recommend the Mandarin BBQ Beef - incredible and the "I love Japan" cocktail!

Great restaurant, food delicious, for the lover of the row fish, the chocolate foundaint is the best ever, and a DJ set is the cherry over the cake.

Lively place with tasty food, cool cocktails and amazing music. The upper level has more lounge tables and allow smoking cigars. It does get pretty lively and crowded there.

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.
