This is one of my favorite Sushi places in Dubai due to the food's high quality, taste and great value for money. The sushi and tempura are staple choices while teppanyaki tables are a cool live culinary indulgence. The a la carte menu is good but buffet nights are splendid as you get 2 or 3 restaurants combined. 3 packages... More

Food was delicious and freshly cooked in front of us, the chef was very entertaining but maybe a bit over the top with the theatrics at times.

The buffet is actually a joint effort with the adjacent Blue Elephant, so no matter where you are seated, you can enjoy the buffet selection in both. Japanese choices include sushi rolls, nigiri, maki, sashimi, teppanyaki, miso, edamame, lots... More
