The agile chef at Miyako has more hand-eye co-ordination than a particularly handy table tennis player and an attacking topspin that would put most pros to shame.

Miyako has long been a flagship for Japanese cuisine in the Emirate. Designer dark wood panels shape an intimate main restaurant, a stylish sushi bar, a teppanyaki section that can be cordoned off by way of authentic gauzy sliding doors and a private dining room. Japanese text in burnt orange and red provides a splash of colour against the sleek lines, although less colourful is the ambience which tends to fluctuate.

Your best bet – provided you can stand the heat – is to reserve a perch in front of one of the two teppanyaki tables and let the games (and flames) begin. The six-course set menu is popular, but it’s more exciting to pick and mix; just don’t be tempted to go overboard, as although your selected few items might look like small fry while being tossed and twirled on the huge silver griddle, they are actually surprisingly filling, especially, served as they are, with slightly crunchy, fluffy fried rice. The food, accompanied by enough sweet, browned garlic to ward off the keenest of vampires, is exceptional; so good you’ll want to eat it very slowly, carefully savouring every bite. The peach-coloured ocean trout is yielding and delicate, though perhaps lacking in the more punchy flavours afforded by its river residing cousins. For a full-flavoured meat dish opt for the 180g rib-eye steak, grilled to your liking with plump green peppercorns.

The uji kintoki should be sampled by virtue of its bizarreness. The shaved ice topped condensed milk flavoured vanilla ice cream, drenched with green tea syrup is enjoyable enough; it’s the garnish of red beans and indescribable opaque gluey eye-like balls, which will leave you perplexed. Easier to understand is why Miyako remains the popular choice.

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.
