Time Out Dubai - City Guide, Information, Events, Reviews & What's On in the City of Dubai

Kisaku, Al Khaleej Palace

Nominated for Best Japanese 57 Comments

Few restaurants in Dubai can boast a full house at lunchtime, but Kisaku, a traditional Japanese gem in the semi-boutique Al Khaleej Palace Hotel, seems to be a hit with the city’s discerning Japanese-loving diners. And this is no surprise – the menu is thick, the dishes affordable, the food dangerously good and the service is far from amateur. Diners pass through curtains to reach the main dining room, and can then choose between a table and the sushi bar. Those at the latter seem to be mostly Japanese expats who come to giggle away at the obscure Japanese TV programmes played at both ends of the room. The fatty tuna sashimi is sure to leave a lasting impression, as will the tasty, teriyaki-style mushrooms on skewers and the succulent white fish and onion tempura, not forgetting the fresh soft-shell crab tucked away within the delicious roast crab sushi rolls.
