    Head to ‘Disco Sushi, The Friday Party Brunch’ to enjoy a 12-course menu of signature dishes. Dhs399 (soft drinks). Dhs599 (beverages). Minimum group booking of four people.
    Timings: 12.30pm-5pm

Long one of Dubai’s coolest nocturnal haunts, Okku is a swish, stylish nightspot knocking out excellent food. While the crowds may pour in on Thursday and Friday nights for fancy drinks and moody surroundings, there’s no need to reserve your sampling of this fusion fare only for the weekends. Throughout the week, the restaurant-lounge is open for lunch as well as dinner, with an excellent-value tezukuri lunch, with varying numbers of courses. Try the ebi gyoza to start, and stick with the seafood theme for mains – the black cod donburi is delicate yet filling, not to mention fantastically tasty. If you’re just around for nibbles, order the organic salmon carpaccio, with tender slivers of the Scottish fish layered with daikon cress, cherry tomatoes and an intriguing shiso-yuzu pesto. Brilliant service is the icing on the cake – everything’s brought to the table with haste, a beaming smile and even a bit of banter if you let them know you’re in the mood. Okku may be stylish, but it’s not too cool to show you a good time. Okku

    I had booked a table for 6 to have dinner. We were given a sofa and two ottomans instead. Despite my complaints to the team and management, we were told that we could take it or leave it as other guests were on waiting list. Horrible service.

    We went to Okku after hearing so much about it and wondered was all the fuss was about the place considering everything we read/heard prior to going.

    We waslked in around 9pm on tuesday night and wow for the venue looking great, a little dark for my liking but understood the candes and mood.

    Sat @ the bar for cocktils and a great acuma martini and some apple martini that was a little less to our taste but seemed to be popular,

    Food we ordered and then sat on or table about 15 mins late to our reservation but we didnt really care and it was full, so understood. had this new scallop starter for starter to share and was great, a lot of sushi and more coktails and then had this great Kani dish that was huge and served on cedar wood- was expensive @ 500dhs but so so worth it.

    Our waiter Oka serves was just i like back home from new york, informative and very antenitive without being in your face and pushy.

    After dinner a cigar in the lounge from arounf 12 and sat there having a few japanese whiskeys until around 1am and it was still 85% full, love this place, not a everydayer for me as i can't afford it unfortunately but 2 times a month.

    if you havent tried it doooooooooo, you'll love it and ask for Oka (he's great)

    Business Lunch is fantastic, good selection of food and great value for money.

    The new menu rocks, it's big and it will take me a while to sample all dishes but so far everything has been amazing. The new sashimi dishes are creative and tasty, the scollops are rich, tuna tartar & beef tartar are outstanding and the black cod is as good as it's always been. Bigger portions though people! This kid is hungry!!!

    My only complaint is the food is so good I always leave unsatisfied as I want to stuff my face silly! EPIC MEAL TIME AT OKKU!
