Went here for lunch with the wife because they have specials and with the platinum card is a great deal. Very tasty but expect it to be busy!

It is easy for parking if you dine at Kiku. I personally like Tenzaru Soba, Chambon seafood noodle and Ume biento. The staff knows my favorite very well and usually settle my order less than 5 seconds. So, I always got my meal within 15 minutes. I really enjoy the advantage of Meridien Gourmet card which save lots of expense... More

I always stay at Le Meridian Hotel and Confrence Center and eat at Kiku whenever I am here. Pretty much every time I enter Jack Zhang, the manager, is there to greet you and show you to your table. I usually eat at the sushi bar as it is very casual. All the sushi is exceptional, I recommend the Otoro... More

So basically it's the favorite hangout place for people, let's say who just came to Dubai or traveling from it. Atmosphere is quite messy and... More

Very good sushi if you crave sushi and are in the area, the fish was fresh and it was good. The place was PACKED when I got there and a lot of Japanese, so it might be the place for the local Japanese community to eat.

If you like sushi you will love Kiku. It's extremely high quality and always very fresh. I've noticed the user photos don't quite do the experience justice - don't let that sway you. This is a must if you're staying at Le Meridien. My fiancé and I look forward to stopping by whenever we are staying near the airport. The... More
