Looks like just a cheap restaurant. And it is cheap... but the food is amazing.
It's a hidden pearl in Dubai, the restaurant where japanese go when they miss home.
My favorite place here.

I was introduced to Bento-ya a few months ago, and even though there are many Japanese restaurants within 5-10 mins of me, I would rather drive the distance to eat at Bento-ya.
The food is always fresh, sushi excellent and if you go you have to try the spicy eggplant in miso paste.
The restaurant is not the type of place for a romantic dinner for two - it a very casual cafe-style eatery. You find expat Japanese diners reading books and chilling out. No fuss just simply good food and at a price that puts other "more fancy" Japanese restaurants in Dubai to shame.
Look for Axiom Cafe near Dusit Thani on Sheikh Zayed Road and it's just behind it. If travelling by metro jump off at "Financial Centre" station and it's a few minutes walk in the direction of Dubai Mall.

I have been eating there for years. A good sign for me when judging restaurants is when natives from the country which the restaurant serves their food (in this case Japanese visitors) eat there regularly. Very authentic Japanese food and very tasty food.

A no fuss restaurant offering authentic, freshly prepared Japanese food at realistic prices. Great place for pre cinema supper.
