Time Out Says
A pleasant cluster of predominantly al fresco, low-key restaurants, Garhoud’s Century Village was once a popular destination for outdoor dining in the city. Following the arrival of JBR’s The Walk, Marina Walk, Souk Al Bahar and the like, the area has lost a little footfall, but not charm. Wander along the path that weaves between restaurants and clouds of sweet-smelling shisha smoke to find Sushi Sushi. Despite the insistent name, this restaurant doesn’t just offer Japanese eats, but branches out across the globe, from satay to cheese sticks, fried calamari to crème brûlée, while throwing a few peculiar fusion dishes out in the shape of crab and cheese spring rolls, and chicken croquettes with tamarind sauce. Sticking to the epic list of sushi rolls is your best bet, while the variety of platters offer decent value for money. Avoid Sushi Sushi ‘specials’ such as the fruity ‘multi-coloured maki’, but do take a vegetarian friend along – the restaurant has a special menu featuring a commendably varied veggie selection. While it’s undoubtedly not the most authentic Japanese you’ll find in Dubai, it’s certainly not the worst.
