Time Out Says

It’s not often we’ll admit to being blown away. But Ají, along Palm Jumeirah’s beach-facing Club Vista Mare, has done it. The Japanese-Peruvian Nikkei restaurant manages to balance creativity, palate-thrilling execution and, perhaps most significantly, value for money. Try starting with shiromi taco, filled with a sea bass and yuzu ceviche, and the oributako causa, one of the menu’s more classically Peruvian dishes. While the former are light, zesty and packed with meaty fish, the causa owns the table. Fat, tender slices of octopus line up along a dollop of dense, whipped (and slightly lemony) potato, all encircling a tangy, creamy black olive mayonnaise. The robalo – a medley of seafood served with a light, smoky sauce and a black rice fritter – and artfully presented miso salad (cubes of wilted spinach sprinkled with puffed quinoa) merely confirm that this is one of the best places you can eat in Dubai. Food this good is rarely this accessible. Prepare to be swept off your feet.
