“Excellent--thanks Tripadvisor contributors”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

We had a long layover in Manama on our return home from Dubai. What to do with that time--not sitting in an airport for 12 hours. After reading reviews I made a reservation at this restaurant. We were absolutely bowled over by the excellence of the staff, the atmosphere and the food. All the staff we encountered were professional and went beyond our expectations. The food was absolutely wonderful. We had the three course menu and were happy with our choices. We choose to sit in the dining room, but had drinks in the lounge prior to dinner because we were early. An example of the service. We were approached by the manager a few times when he came to see if we were happy. We asked the restaurant to call us a taxi. They would not hear of us waiting outside, but put us in a lounge area and the manager came by and gave us some Japanese Plum Wine. This was such a nice touch. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Thanks again for the Tripadvisor contributors writing the reviews and letting us know about this gem of a restaurant.

“The best restaurant and a fantastic experience.”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We went for the Friday Brunch and it was amazing. We have always been fans of Bushidos and had to experience the Brunch. Great service, very relaxed and great tunes from the dj that set the tone for the afternoon. The food was varied and plentiful. Stuff for kids and a kids play room. Great service and a variety of drinks. The only slight grumble was the sushi wasn't the best. Personally this is by far the best restaurant in Bahrain.

“Service with a smile”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were introduced to Bushido through friends who are very regular there, food is the best I have tasted in Bahrain, and the atmosphere is simply divine with the choice of outdoor seating and service starts with a smile right from the reception area all the way to the table. Prices a bit on the high side but worth it. Now it's time to make a visit without our friends to test the service quality that is usually extended to regulars. Watch this space !

“Always a winner”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Set in beautiful grounds close to The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Bushido is, without a doubt, one of Bahrain's most sophisticated restaurants, boasting excellent service and superb food. We never fail to receive the very best of service from Avil and his team and a calm, quiet and unhurried atmosphere pervades in the dimly lit restaurant. Comfortable chairs, clean linen and large tables make for a very pleasant entree into dinner. The authentic Japanese food is exceptional and the menu is full of dishes using a wide and varied selection of fresh produce flown in especially. Definitely the best sushi and sashimi is served here and the tempura prawns are mouth-wateringly phenomenal. Brunch is a favourite of ours as well.
