The ambience, the food and the attentive service... to celebrate 9 years of incredible friendship, I knew I could not go wrong by picking this place for such an occasion. The effortless but remarkable recommendations, even before we went through the menu, got us to let Marcello take us on an exceptional cuisine journey. From the wine to dessert, we... More

Okku provides innovative ideas through menu selection, presentation and service. The kitchen team reads like a who's who of the Japanese culinary A-list. Dine on delicacies dreamt up and dished up by distinguished chefs from the foodie capital cities of Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

I visited for the ladies night advertised "free flowing bubbly 189dhs per person" however we were made to share our drinks as the staff would not give a new drink until all the table had finished, I witnessed one staff member informing his colleague we were only allowed two which meant we had a total of two drinks each ......

The place is famous for Sunday nights when a dj is playing live, along with saxo player and a drummer. The food is tasty and service is great.

I have eaten at Okku in the restaurant and for their ladies nights and it has always been consistently good. Brunch however was nothing short of terrible. They call it 'Disco sushi' apparently a fun brunch where silly props, 80's music and well... sushi are the order of the day, having done all of the best brunches in town and... More

Visited Okku for my anniversary last Friday. Chose a 9pm sitting and decided on being at the counter with the chefs rather than a table. Definitely a good call as it enhanced the atmosphere and all the staff we encountered were very friendly. Place was busy with a huge table behind us but overall good vibes and the dishes came...

-Bcos PPL Opinion Matters- We headed 8 of us to Okku Brunch on Friday. I have experienced cheating before at this place as they top up the bill with crazy additional charges that all dubai places don't have. Also they don't mention it on their menu when you select your dishes. The brunch was supposed to be 550 including sparkling.... More

We were left very disappointed because we left hungry! The menu concept is strange, three different menus: the buffet with sushi is ok, not wow, average and you can get as much as you want, second menu is a starter 'choose one dish only to share between 2' and third the main, again only choice of 1 type of dish...

Surprise dinner for Valentines this year. Opting for for the set menu, we trusted the chef with the dishes. We'd heard only great things and were really looking forward to coming. Staff were friendly although didn't seem to listen, meaning when we thought we had requested our preferences they came very differently to the table. Simple requests to replace chilli... More
