sushi, sashimi, miso soup and handrolls, you have the salad options,tempura, dimsum and gyozo and then hot food like teriyakai beef and chicken, steamed salmon and noodles / fried rice. The food is significantly better than it used to be and they have also redone the interior. Staff were good, it wasn't an issue ordering drinks. You can also walk... More

Came here for the night brunch on a Friday. The quality and taste of the food exceeded my expectations, it was really good. To be honest the wine/alcohol included is not the best quality. However 250 AED for open bar and an amazing food buffet was totally worth it in my opinion, would definitely go back.

It first ruined the evening with the seating: We came here without prior reservation on a weekday as it is my birthday but we saw it's not busy so we still decided to dine here. However, we waited for 15 min before being seated despite the empty floor area. Since we are just ordering ala-carte they wanted to seat us... More

Trying the Thursday night unlimited buffet is a must, choose between the Japanese or the adjacent thai restaurant which is a better setting to eat, all of the food was very fresh and very friendly efficient staff
