Best Japanese Restaurants In Dubai

We all know that Japanese food is among the most sought-after cuisines in the globe and Dubai is not an exception.

We know that there are plenty of Japanese restaurants in Dubai and we have reviewed a few of the Japanese restaurants.  In this blog, we are going to share our experience of visiting the best Japanese restaurants in Dubai.


1) Minato in Radission Blu Deira Creek Hotel

Dubai has some of the very best experiences in the world but when it comes to Japanese food and experiences, Minato is the number 1 choice to visit!

We were welcomed and led to our table in a different room, we didn’t know what to expect and there was a teppanyaki table. We had only seen these in films and heard about them but were looking forward to any delights that would be served there.


We were blown away by the quality of food, the performance by our own chef at the table @hibachichef_moelsayed and the whole atmosphere/service was impeccable.

Minato is an authentic Japanese restaurant along the bank of Deira Creek. It is housed in the original 5* hotel in Dubai Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek.

The restaurant features classic traditional Japanese dining spaces like a teppanyaki table, sushi bar and private tatami rooms, which add to the authenticity of the entire dining experience at Minato.

Any occasion should warrant a booking here, so you can enjoy the incredible experience whilst eating some of the finest Japanese food that we have ever tasted.

2) Kimura-ya Marina

Kimura-ya is one of the most popular chains of top venues in Tokyo with 200 branches in Japan.

Keep your friends close and your sushi closer 🍱🍣. How about a Japanese restaurant with the most serene setting? Have your ears just peeled up?

This week we visited @Kimurayamarina at @habtoorgrandresort  on the spectacular JBR beach premises🌟 We absolutely love sushi and this was perfect for us.

Two big favourites were:
