Sakura, Crowne Plaza
Nominated for Best Japanese 8 Comments
The Crowne Plaza Dubai is hiding a secret within its dated walls. Exceptional food at reasonable prices with refined service is what makes a good dining experience, and Sakura satisfies on every level. The decor – a kitsch mix of enlarged stereotypically Japanese photos and oddly shaped windows – is its only downfall. The menu is simple, yet boasts one or two options that you won’t find at even the best Japanese restaurants in town, such as the delightful crunchy salmon skin maki rolled in spring onions, and the Japanese answer to hot pot, shabu shabu. Prices are reasonable and the food is as good, if not better, than most mid-range restaurants in Dubai. The dessert menu could do with sprucing up, but if it’s green tea ice cream or tempura ice cream that makes you happy, then look no further.
