Time Out Says

This established Japanese restaurant at Raffles Dubai is still performing to top levels. Firstly, the views from its vantage point are amazing. With panoramic vistas stretching out from Oud Metha across to Downtown Dubai and the Burj Khalifa, dining here is a treat before you even try the food. It’s an excellent place for a special occasion, or to take visitors to.

In even better news? Dishes are superb, and good value to boot. Compared to some of the other be-hemoths in this category, which you’ll need to prepare your wallet for ahead of time, this one isn’t eye-wateringly pricey.

And it’s with all that in mind that we’re surprised that TOMO isn’t a much more celebrated venue.

We heartily recommend the sushi, which is clearly prepared by a real master, but to get an overview of the menu, try the set versions, which cover a range of prices and options.

Ingredients are imported from Japan weekly, meaning you know you’re getting the freshest produce, too.

The word TOMO is literally translated as longtime friend, and that’s exactly what you’d call this restau-rant. Unfailingly loyal, always welcoming and the perfect place to relax with your nearest and dearest.

The bottom line
Relaxed venue with authentic food.
