“great food, service and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

I travel a lot long distance and have been to many of the world leading Restaurants, mostly created by famous star chefs to experience new creation and openings can be very rewarding. Having lived in Dubai some years back the choice was not so great. Having stayed a few times at the Raffles Hotel I was made aware by the reception of the change in restaurant on top of the Pyramid.
The experience at this new creation was fantastic, great authentic Japanese cuisine as you find in Tokyo's best, outstanding friendly service and great views make this location a must to visit. Particular now at the pleasant nighttime temperature it is great to have drinks at the highup open terrace and enjoy the nightskyline of the buzling Dubai. Great compliments to the chef and owners to enrich the Dubai restaurant sceene.

“Amazing food, great view and atmosphere :)”

Visited Tomo twice so far and will be coming back. Tomo has rather large menu what is great as every time you can choose and taste new dishes...it's authentic japanese food...love especially pork dishes...pork udon noodles, pork belly stir-fry, wagyu teriyaki is to die for...I love the ambience and the view is great.The restaurant is on 17th floor and has a terrace with a perfect view of Dubai so it's great that you can move after dinner outside and have a few drinks with friends. Definitely recommend to everyone. A must go restaurant while you in Dubai.

I was delighted that you pointed out the large choice of traditional Japanese dishes we offer in our menu. Our mission at TOMO is to promote Japanese food as we eat in Japan. It is my pleasure to welcome you and your guests again in the near future. We are also opening our other 2 terraces shortly where you can also dine outdoors.

“Good authentic Japanese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is an authentic Japanese restaurant with excellent menu offerings. I was lucky enough to be dining with some Japanese friends who ordered for the table - and their choices were great. My favourite dish was the miso cod, coming in a close second would be the salmon sashimi.

The place is buzzing and the chef takes time out of the kitchen to greet guests, which is common in Japan, but not as common in Dubai.

Couple of issues with the staff disappearing for extended periods of time, but I think it has more to do with the sheer size of the restaurant - and all the nooks and crannies - rather than poor service. These issues will get better over time. The restaurant sits on the top of the pyramid in Wafi - which gives a great view over Dubai.

Can't wait to go back again.
