Had sushi for starters, wasn't bad but not really worth eating either. Noodle soup I had for main dish was not good at all. They don't have the 50% lunch discount anymore.

I think I have tried everything at the menu and everything is just authentic Japanese. Great price, service is good, you get free valet and the variety of menu is good. This is still my favorite Japanese Restaurant in Dubai.

Not the most beautiful restaurant, but the food is good and authentic. For lunch we had sushi, ukura sake don (rice bowl with pan-fried salmon and salmon row), grilled mackerel bento and green tea. It was all great.
