One of the best Japanese restaurants in Dubai. Great food and atmosphere. Most of the clients are from Japan... I guess that's say it all. Highly recommended.

Reservations are highly recommended, even if you eat dinner early. We went this past week around 6:30 pm and it began to fill quickly. For larger groups, there are... More

It is easy for parking if you dine at Kiku. I personally like Tenzaru Soba, Chambon seafood noodle and Ume biento. The staff knows my favorite very well and usually settle my order less than 5 seconds. So, I always got my meal within 15 minutes. I really enjoy the advantage of Meridien Gourmet card which save lots of expense... More

Very good sushi if you crave sushi and are in the area, the fish was fresh and it was good. The place was PACKED when I got there and a lot of Japanese, so it might be the place for the local Japanese community to eat.
