Choosing the Best Japanese Restaurant in Dubai

Thanks to the world being a “global village”, we can now eat all kinds of cuisines anywhere in the world. Be it Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Indian or Japanese. These days Japanese cuisine is gaining extreme popularity in Dubai. Restaurants have a lot to offer when it comes to Japanese dishes. The most significant part of Japanese cuisine is that every chef can innovate the dish and serve it in a different manner or design from the other. So, let’s talk about what to look for while searching for a good Japanese restaurant.

The Food

The first thing to look for is definitely, the food. The amazing quality of food is why you’d visit the restaurant. The Japanese cuisine mainly centers around seafood and rice. The major dishes include sushi, sashimi, miso soup and ramen. The most popular one, Sushi consists of oval shaped rolls prepared with rice, vegetables and seafood (mostly, uncooked). Sushi is often confused with sashimi which consists of thinly sliced raw fish or meat with a service of rice and is served as slices. Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup consisting of broth into which softened miso paste is mixed. There are a lot of ingredients which are added depending on local preferences, regional and seasonal recipes. Ramen are wheat noodles served in meat or fish based broth served with different flavours like miso or soy sauce and toppings like sliced pork, green onions, etc.


The second thing to look for should be what a restaurant has to offer in terms of visual sensations. It should make you feel as if you are eating in Japan without actually having to travel all the way. The staff wearing kimonos and maintaining a japan-themed décor can be visually astonishing.


The services provided by restaurants should be at the top of their priority list. The staff should be well mannered and polite because you know if the service isn’t good, you’re not going to visit that restaurant again.

Chef’s Creativity

As I mentioned earlier, every chef has his very own design and innovations when it comes to food. One thing you must look for is how well it is presented. It should be a sight for sore eyes because any dish isn’t going to have a lasting impression on you unless it is very well presented.

In the era of technology, it has become quite easy to find out about restaurants that feature the things mentioned above. There are different websites and mobile applications like Facebook, Zomato, Tripadvisor or Restaurant Finder, etc. which can provide us with reviews, ratings and experiences of other customers while visiting a certain restaurant but what works best is to ask the local experts like cops, cab drivers and other populace. Surely, finding restaurants these days has become an easy chore.
