Lounge, set back ambiance were you can enjoy food and music in a cosy setting.
I very much enjoyed the experience and recommend to place to all Dubai visitors and residents!

It is sure that the location of the restaurant at the H Hotel adds a plus on the overall experience!!

Very modern decor with welcoming staff. Menu is quite extensive and they are keen to help advise. The food was delicious though quite expensive for what we had. Enjoyed the surroundings very much and would recommend.

Went for lunch. Chose one of the 3 price fixe menus. Miso soup: nice, large bowl, tasty and hot. Shrimp skewers as first course. Nice portion but bland and boring flavor; cooked perfectly. Main course was the piece de resistance: black cod, perfectly cooked, flaked with chopsticks and two mounds of small grain rice. There was a light, creamy sauce under the pieces of cod; perfect accompaniment. This dish attained perfection, in my opinion, for Japanese grilled black cod. The fish was light, fresh and perfectly cooked. Congratulations!

It is a very nice restaurant to hang out with girlfriend or a group of friends. Overall is pretty good, but not the best sushi in town. It is more like a top end fusion / sushi / lounge like few others in Dubai rather than a Japanese resto.

Yep expensive but so are some horrible places in this city! If you like the vibe in Dubai of eating in dark places with music ( becoming louder as the night moves on) then this will not disappoint. Great surroundings although no jellyfish in the aquarium behind the bar ( they died) when we went. We were looked after fantastically by James and the sommelier was good too. We had a mixture of cold and hot, stick with the cold. The sushi and sashimi was very very good. The wine that was chosen for us on both occasion complimented. Staff were fantastic from reception through to the end.
