The Hyatt Regency restaurant celebrated its 25th birthday in October 2012 (that’s 100 in Dubai restaurant years), yet shows no sign of surrendering to the ‘cooler’ competition in the south of the city. The restaurant’s modestly sized interior is paved with slate-like stone and the furniture is comprised of dark wood. Two teppanyaki tables stand slightly elevated at the back of the restaurant, partially obscured by sliding partitions. The notable presence of Japanese businessmen winding down after a day at work, bespeaks the restaurants authenticity – as does the meaty, exquisitely fresh tuna sashimi. Nigiri sushi options are expertly prepared and as fresh and flavourful as the sashimi options, while hot dishes spoil for choice – the niku ramen is a genuine delight. The restaurant also offers an array of ‘set menus’, which transpire to be set platters featuring rice, a main dish and miso. Miyako succeeds by doing the simple things right and doing them extremely well at that.
Open daily 12.30pm-3pm, 7pm-midnight. Hyatt Regency Dubai, Deira, www.dubai.regency.hyatt.com (04 209 1234).
