“Over priced and no atmosphere”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Stayed at the Emirates Towers and after trying the Lebanese in the mall I went to Tokyo at the towers.
We were met at reception, asked if we had a reservation (we didn't). They then spent 5 mins debating whether we could go in and finally agreed.

When we got it there was not another sole in the whole place-8pm on a Thursday evening! Concluded they were debating whether to open at all.

Had soft shell crab for starter (good) and then a beef dish with rice. 2 beers and similarly for a colleague.

Unbelievable bill...around €100 a head. Paid €50 in Hong Kong at a better place.

Dubai is expensive but this was taking the preverbal... Want go again on next trip.

“TEppanyaki very good”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Last night had the pleasure of dining here. Chef Prakash and staff very good and good fun very entertaining. Especially Vian .The downside were the Americans at the table ignorant too busy talking business and didn't join in with the fun as there were 5 of them did dampen spirit a little.
Food was lovely we had the shogun seafood and steak lovely. The garlic rice so good nearly ate it all very unusual for me! Made for a lovely evening 2 sittings 7&9 for TEppanyaki .
Would definitely go back when next in Dubai

“Great Teppanyaki with nice service”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Tokyo@thetowers is located in the Emirates Towers. It served japanese dishes such as sushi or teppanyaki. I went with colleagues for the business lunch and we choose the teppanyaki menu.
The restaurant had 3 tables of teppanyaki on the first floor with eight places for each. At lunch, the proposed some set menus with soup, vegetables, rices and 2 main meat to choose, between prawns, chicken or steaks. For my part I choose, the sukiyaki steak and chicken teriyaki.
I really like to see the cook preparing the plates. It's really fun. Meat were very good as soup and rices. Prices are correct for lunch (set menu without the drinks approx. 95 AED).
Services is nice and professional and decor also nice.

“Finest Sushi in Town”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I love love love their sushi and go there from time to time. Their food is fresh and tasty. I love how you can reserve a room for your group of friends and have total privacy and experience the japanese eating traditions. The staff are friendly and the service is fast.

“Incredible Tepanyaki”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

My wife and I just came back from Tepanyaki at Tokyo at the towers. Undoubtedly the best Tepanyaki we've had in Dubai. Our chef, Don Don made the evening unforgettable. We will be coming back soon.
