Bushido is definitely my favourite Asian food restaurant on the island. It is a bit pricy, but the food is definitely worth it! They have a nice lounge area upstairs and it's a great hang out with some friends. It's definitely one of the hippest places for parties and events.

What a let down. The food comes in small portions, it is incredibly pricey, and there are too many staff who do a lot of nothing. The venue is impressive, but far too dark - i'd rather eat at Trader Vic's next door.

Dear CKGTribe,

thank you very much for your recent review on Bushido restaurant. We appreciate the time you have taken to share your experience, and despite the fact we would have enjoyed better comments, this will help us to improve our offer in the future.

We agree with you on the fact that our menu pricing is on the high side, as we are a high end venue, and are only using the freshest and prepared on the day products. Most of the ingredients are imported to ensure the best quality for our dishes. On the other end, we would like to ensure that we are fairly price (if not lower priced) compared to other Japanese venues of the same caliber in Bahrain and in the region. We are running pricing survey several times a year to ensure our guests to have the best value for money, and truly enjoy a unique experience at Bushido.

In regards to the darkness of the place, Bushido is part of the world-renowned Buddha-Bar network, which emphasize on a blend of food, beverage, atmosphere and music. In order to enhance our guests' senses, the dim lighting of the place allows different senses to take over your usual ones in other normal places. Dim lighting allows to provide an intimate environment while hearing, smell and taste are over-taking the sight.

We do have a large service team in order to better serve and focus on each of their respective tables. We would be glad if you could get back to us (a private message has been sent to you also), with the date, timing and detail of your reservation, in order to identify what did not go right with your experience. We do hope we will provide us with the opportunity to better understand, and hopefully serve you better at your next visit.

Once again, thank you very much for the time taken to share your feedback with us, and while looking forward to welcoming you back at Bushido, we would like to wish you a great day ahead.

Warmest regards,

Bushido Team.
