Dubai is not short of Asian-fusion restaurants, but Namu – billed as a “Japanese/Korean culture clash” – is perhaps the most exciting and intriguing. It’s set high up in the new W Dubai, where floor-to-ceiling windows provide a bird’s eye view of the city. There’s an extensive menu packed full of well-thought out dishes and unusual ingredients. The menu is divided into sections including “fire” (grills) and “ice” (sashimi).Go for the salmon and avocado maki roll, which is delicately flavoured with a hint of wasabi and Granny Smith apple. The chicken yaki tori, smothered in a sticky, sweet sauce, is delicious. Dessert has an abundance of great-sounding dishes, but try the chocolate mochi, which is rich and indulgent. Staff are enthusiastic and friendly and the prices are decent for the standard and setting.
