Honyaki

Nominated for Best Japanese Comments

Since opening in the summer of 2011, Honyaki has been going about its business quietly and confidently. The restaurant’s environs are relaxed and straight-forward, though fantastic views of the Madinat complex and the Burj Al Arab make it a far more memorable venue than the countless ‘flat-pack chic’ Japanese restaurants constantly popping up all over Dubai. The food, meanwhile, is excellent. The scallop is perhaps, one of the most velvet-smooth cuts of sashimi you’re likely to taste in Dubai, while the crab tacos are exhilaratingly fresh. Likewise, the dynamite rolls – artful mosaics of caviar, eel, sticky rice and wasabi – are, true to their name, explosions of taste. The dishes win full marks for flavour, though high prices might leave some unwitting diners with a bad taste in their mouths. However, forgetting this, the quality of the food and the views are a winning combination.
Open daily noon-midnight. Souk Madinat Jumeirah, www.jumeirah.com (04 366 6255).
