It is difficult to think of anything that the Hyatt Regency does badly, so what follows will not come as a surprise. The Dubai version of the hotel's famed Japanese restaurant chain is unquestionably one of the finest dining attractions in the city.

Even though the hotel is no longer at the heart of the city (it used to be, by the way) this is still a restaurant with a loyal following. There are two seating choices on offer: table-service for à la carte sushi, sashimi and shabu-shabu, or a theatrical performance around the tepanyaki grill. Since we were dining on the Time Out Dubai expense account, we chose the latter.

We ordered two set menus, The Hakone Set (Dhs150) and The Hakadote Set (Dhs195), and shared both between us. What arrived, in sequence, was: green salad, grilled chicken, fried beef and vegetables with rice, a selection of five types of fish, miso soup, and much, much more besides. It was all exquisite to say the least. The tepanyaki grill is a sociable environment, and the chef entertains the crowd with hair-singeing cooking and egg juggling (the latter he pretends to be not so good at).

The night whiled away with a lengthy selection of beverages, banter with strangers, and attentive service. The problem with Miyako, however, is that you see other culinary delights being cooked aside your own, so you simply have to go back again!

Book early - there are only 10 places around the tepanyaki grill.

Terrible place, terrible food. I have been to many Japanese resturants here and outside Dubai in different countries, this is the worst one. Not that Tepanyake is typically Japanese (as it originated in US), but at least in some places they have mastered it and here it is not mediocre - it is terrible! The Nepal guy that cooked for us didn't have much idea what he was doing, not to mention he was overcooking everything, even requested not to. He wa sputting butter (!!!) on everything and burning it...well, will definately not go there again, especially the price I paid for the mediocre service and terrible food.
