Slick Japanese restaurant with views of The Dubai Fountain
Time Out Dubai staff
Few restaurants can boast such an exclusive setting, at the base of the world’s tallest skyscraper, with tables spilling out onto a spacious terrace overlooking glassy pools and the world’s tallest fountain. If you’re looking to entertain guests, business associates or a date, you’ve come to the right place. Inside, Hashi exudes the same trademark style and understated sleekness as the rest of the hotel, while outdoors candlelit tables and those famous views await. There’s an extensive menu featuring exquisite signature dishes, including the ever-popular black cod, as well as sushi, raw fish, tempura, robatayaki, teppanyaki, rice and noodle dishes. Portions are small, especially considering the prices, but ingredients are high quality and dishes well presented, as you’d expect, with even the simplest – such as the single-ingredient grilled eringi mushrooms – proving a success. Does the food reach the heady heights of the building it’s prepared in? Not quite, but with such fine surroundings you’ll barely notice.
