One of the few restaurants in Dubai which serves authentic, traditional Japanese cuisine – not the fusion cuisine which Zuma, Nobu and Okku have come to portray as Japanese. As one would expect, quality of everything from the ingredients used to the décor to the service to the Sake is Le Méridien 5-star. And with a sushi counter, Teppanyaki table,... More

I love Japanese food, which is very popular but mostly not real one, and finally I have found the perfect one in Dubai: Kiku!!!!! Food, location, atmosphere, everything is perfect and real genuine Japanese!!!!! Only one thing missing: living in Dubai Marina the restaurant is little bit far, I wish they will open a new branch closer to Marina!!!!

I stay at Le Meridien hotel every year in March and make a point of eating at Kiku at least once during my trip. The food is excellent - always fresh and delicious - and the staff are incredibly friendly. Definitely one of the best Japanese experiences in Dubai!

A great japanese option! Food is fresh and tasty (the Chef Shirashi is awesome). All what we tried was excellent (soups, sushi, sashimi) and the best way to savour a little bit of everything is to try their Bento boxes. For us, is the destination for Japanese cuisine in Dubai. (By the way: always full of Japanese people. Definitely a... More
