Another banging Aussie import to Dubai - who knew? Ball hard, and roll in as a smooth operator here: this place gives Japanese icon Zuma a run for its money. Japanese meets Australian cuisine in an Izakaya style dining concept: in short, mega plush.
Check out the uber romantic outside garden area with umbrellas floating in the sky like fresh air. The line-up of jokes Aussie bartenders are friendly enough to lighten the mood of the swanky crowd, and it’s nice to see those who’re usually stiffer than the woodwork interior chill the f*ck out.
We drank the Nikka Rose (Nikka Blended Whisky shaken with strawberries, yuzu juice, rose & Amaretto) on repeat order throughout the evening and got down to the rad female DJ (7 nights a week). Bring plastic, this place is pricey, of course.
