Asian restaurant in the Burj Al Arab Reviews

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011

Meaning ‘pure’ in Japanese, the restaurant has a lot to live up to as before you even get to its doors.You have to travel through the opulent surroundings, and security, of the seven-star Burj al Arab and pay a Dhs300 deposit for your table. Luckily, first impressions live up to expectations and you'll be given a guided tour of the eating stations before being seated at your table and everything possible seems to be on offer. Have no fear about coming here as a vegetarian, there is plenty of choice on offer.

As it's buffet style you can gorge in the wide variety of Asian cuisine and sample, discard and retry dishes as many times as you see fit from the Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Indonesian and Korean options on offer. Must eats were the duck in pancakes, lamb roast, Indonesian vegetables and sushi selection of starters. It is also recommended to take the staff up on their offer of mocktails and to keep space for the great selection of desserts and chocolates. But dress smart and make sure to book in advance to get a window table.

An extraordinary place! Food was amazingly tasty, personnel was very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was superb. Would recommend any day. On top of all that, it is a good value for your buck. The price per head is a bit higher than that of a Burj Al Arab tour, but you get a full buffet dinner, and a chance to wonder through Burj Al Arab, enjoying it's glamour beauty. Family friendly.
