Predictably, the place was almost full which no doubt contributed to a jovial environment with not that good music but do i say. Nevertheless, a full compliment of staff meant that the service was flawless (a,chatty and enthusiast young African King Samson who pumped us up with the best cocktails and the bar staff were friendly and professional at the lounge bar. Clearly every effort has been made to deliver a slick experience. The food was of a very high quality, especially at the teppan and not forgetting at an appropriate price. I look forward to returning on a busier night to check that the service is maintained and the environment is more lively , but I have no doubts about either.

Recently went to Morimoto, the new and exciting restaurant that recently opened it's doors to Dubai! The restaurant takes it's name after the super cool celebrity Iron Chef Morimoto!!! This super stylish lounge bar and restaurant is located at the Renaissance hotel in Business bay.... stunning interiors, spread over two floors 23rd/24th including a large open air terrace overlooking Burj Khalifa with it's own separate entrance and lifts.... I truly felt like I was stepping into a surreal world when the lift opened on the 23rd floor to this delightful Japanese fusion splendour! We indulged in delicious bites from the menu like fresh oysters, salmon tacos, sushi, peri peri chicken on skewers that had a real kick to them and lots of other yummies...as well as the very unusual but totally fabulous signature cocktails like gin fizz and white coffee and another yummy cocktail with shaved parmesan and red peppercorns and my personal favourite...sakè... the entire atmosphere was electrifying and very trendy! This is by far one of the best restaurants I've been to in Dubai and I've been to many! I will definitely be going back for more!

Returning to Dubai for a week I had heard that Morimoto had opened and was eager to see if the cuisine lived up to its brethren around the world. A decently varied menu and excellent tasting sushi. Starters that we ordered were devoured and a special mention to the Chicken gyoza which were beautifully presented. The servers were absolutely fantastic, always smiling and building great rapport. Special shout out to Mary who was our waitress, who paced our order very well, and allowed us the space to have private conversation but ready at our beck and call if need be. Value for money is always questionable in Dubai but at 100$ a head for 3 appetisers and some sushi without any alcohol, I can't say its cheap however, I was not disappointed with my experience and I would most definitely return.

Morimoto has opened its doors last week and we decided to visit this restaurant with our kids for dinner. The restaurant is based on the 23rd and 24th floor of the Renaissance hotel. It opened its doors only a week ago and has both indoor and outdoor seating with amazing views outside overlooking Burj Khalifa and business bay.
We sat in one of the private terraces and would highly recommend this restaurant for some really
good Japanese cuisine. Our favourite spot is Zuma, and I’d happily say that the team delivered amazing food all around!

We had toro tartare ( tasty but a bit nouvelle cuisine), the sushi and sashimi was excellent, fresh and truly top notch quality, the California rolls were fabulous as well. They have shoshito peppers, which is a favourite of ours!
The tacos were excellent as well. We also had the beef tenderloin and it was cooked to perfection.
A special thanks to our waiter and the manager Ms Cynthia who took very good care of us. The service was great considering that we were sitting outdoors and not close to the service area.
This Japanese restaurant is very nice for anyone who enjoys fine dining, but expect a matching price tag!
