Good space. Great service and excellent sushi.
Wanted Nobu, landed up here... Was not disappointed.

Tried the agidashi tofu which I would not get again. The yellow sashimi and spicy tune were yumm.

We had a cocktail before we went to the table which was made to my taste preference and was excellent. We were seated as a couple in an intimate spot in the restaurant yet still maintaining the brilliant atmosphere of the restaurant. The restaurant has a buzz and the music helps to create and up-beat and trendy yet relaxed vibe.

The food is delicious accepting their recommendations is a smart idea the food was well prepared and more importantly tasted delicious! If you like Japanese food definitely try!

Would definitely recommend and return in the future!

This is one of the best places in Dubai.. Went to Okku on a sunday night and we had dinner in the lounge area while listening to great music. This place has a very positive vibe!
The food is amazing especially the tuna tartar with truffle oil as well the meat skewers with foie gras, wowww!!! Will definitely visit again when in dubai.

Okku is a fusion restaurant located on the first floor of the famous H hotel on sheikh Zayed road. It has a lounge and seating tables for dinner. The place is tinny with limited walking space when full with guests.

Reservation is a must as the host will check you in, very professional and friendly hosts at the entrance who will guide you to our seating area.

We sat at the bar in the restaurant area and we had a nice presentation on the food by our waiter, he gave excellent recommendation and we did not regret it.

The maki rolls were made to perfection (soft shell crab is a must to try) and the black cod dish was amazing.

The place is hip with many people dressed up and enjoying their time out, a group had a birthday celebration.

Draw backs: music was loud, and the place is tight so if you r uncomfortable with tight spaces (phobia) this is not the place for you.
Desert is also amazing
The bill is hefty one so prepare for a high dollar ticket,

To me this is a place I will never hesitate to go to but reservation is a must

We had a tremendous dining experience at Okku, the quality of the ingredients are first class, the preparation precise and creative, the presentation gorgeous and the service impeccable. The sommelier helped us select an excellent wine from the extensive list and the cocktails were skillfully created. This is not a place to go if you are on a tight budget, but for a taste of some of the best Japanese I have enjoyed outside Japan, go to Okku, order the Omakase menu and have a gastronomic experience to remember.
