Time Out Says

With JBR’s trendy new Japanese restaurant comes this trendy new bar. When you enter Ramusake you have to walk through the bar area to get to the dining room. A clever move by whoever designed it, as it’s very much a place you feel like retiring to after your meal, which is exactly what we do on our first visit.

Whoever is responsible for the décor also deserves a round of applause. It feels like work has been put in to make it feel as traditional as possible. There is lots of wood, art and windows giving it an authentic Japanese feel, but the atmosphere has a distinct air of modernity about it, with well-heeled waiters and a bit of a party crowd.

The menu features grape options, short drinks from around the world and Japanese offerings, which they say include some of the finest available anywhere.

Mixed drinks are represented with an inventive menu featuring ingredients as varied as roasted ginger, wasabi paste, popcorn and jasmine foam, while prices range to suit many budgets, with mixed drinks costing from Dhs40 right up to Dhs310 (for four to share).

This is overall a very welcome addition to the JBR bar scene and is certainly a venue you would feel comfortable just visiting as a bar, without venturing into the restaurant itself (though we highly recommend that, too).

It looks good, feels good and the drinks are good. What more can you ask for?

The Bottom Line
In a class above your average restaurant bar. Excellent.
