Today we had a craving for a good Japanese. After the demise of our favourite Japanese restaurant, we followed the recommendations of several friends and went to Okku which we knew of but had never tried. The welcome was friendly, and after we managed to politely refuse a table which squeezed us between (and close to) other diners, we were... More

Went for Friday brunch with friends in Dubai; had several courses and we went for the all you can drink wine and beers package. Food and drinks were good but nothing out of the ordinary. Bad thing was that the service was crap! We were an only girls table and we got all our courses served way later than the... More

After reading a lot of good reviews we had to visit Okku because we are big fans of Asian food. We arrived early, without booking and the reception was very welcoming, the decoration of the restaurant is very nice indeed. I will stop here with the positive aspects of this place. We did the biggest mistake of ordering a lot... More

Attending the Friday brunch with friends, we were treated to welcome drinks and a seafood appetiser before being seated. Our waitress was wonderful and went to great lengths to make us feel welcome and attended to. The food choices are vast, with options for people of all dietary preferences. There is multiple drinks options, from non-alcoholic to spirits and wine... More

Let’s just start with walking inside the venue. I liked it a lot, felt very modern and avant garde. Glowing jellyfishes in an aquarium was pretty cool. We had an amazing server who was pretty laid back, making jokes and telling us his own preferences. It felt genuine and was very appreciated. We had three starters to share followed by... More
