Japanese food in the Emirates Towers Boulevard Reviews

Competing with a number of the city’s biggest names, including nearby The Ivy and Tokyo@the Towers, ET Sushi is a high-end sushi train and à la carte restaurant that serves up signature delights, as well as more standard Japanese fare. The interior is light, airy and welcoming, and the atmosphere pleasant. Dishes like the spicy salmon tartare with hot mayonnaise, cabbage and avocado bring this eatery up a notch, and the whatchamacallit rolls, topped with a seared slice of wagyu beef and melted cheesy mayonnaise, are delicious. The foie gras with sticky rice is also worth a try and meat lovers will go ga-ga over the tender lamb chops with a katsu-style mustard dipping sauce, cooked to perfection. The only downfall is that the menu is a little over-ambitious, with not all menu items actually available. Any reservations you might have will vanish, however, as soon as the dessert arrives – particularly the delectable lime crème brûlée with sweet chestnut cream.

I was there a couple of years ago and it was pretty good.
But when I went back last week it was very different than what I remembered. The sushi was just average, or even worse than average.
Even the simple things were not good. The quality of the salmon was not better than what you would get in a bento box at the supermarket, and even worse the tuna was not fresh at all, it was simply old and tasteless.
Also the service was totally disorganized.
And the wasabi ? It was just like in the time out review, dry and powdery. So we asked the waitress if she could bring us freshly made wasabi paste and she said "oh, you wanted the good wasabi? ok I'll bring you some", and she then brought us wasabi that was fine, not dry like what she served us at the beginning. What did she think ? That we would not want the good wasabi but the old and bad wasabi ?
The only good thing about the place is the modern decor.

I just looooove their sushi, but their kitchen food is hit and miss. I was shocked when my friend and I ordered teriyaki chicken and the chicken was deep fried. I have never had it like this before. The teriyaki sauce they slathered the greesy chicken pieces with tasted too strong as well. There tempura, however is yummy, though more expensive for what you get then at other restaurants.

But their sushi is top notch and I will go there any day if a friend who loves sushi will go with me. Unfortunately, I won't go with my husband and he always orders from the kitchen menu and he would be disappointed.
