I have eaten at Okku in the restaurant and for their ladies nights and it has always been consistently good. Brunch however was nothing short of terrible. They call it 'Disco sushi' apparently a fun brunch where silly props, 80's music and well... sushi are the order of the day, having done all of the best brunches in town and... More

Visited Okku for my anniversary last Friday. Chose a 9pm sitting and decided on being at the counter with the chefs rather than a table. Definitely a good call as it enhanced the atmosphere and all the staff we encountered were very friendly. Place was busy with a huge table behind us but overall good vibes and the dishes came...

-Bcos PPL Opinion Matters- We headed 8 of us to Okku Brunch on Friday. I have experienced cheating before at this place as they top up the bill with crazy additional charges that all dubai places don't have. Also they don't mention it on their menu when you select your dishes. The brunch was supposed to be 550 including sparkling.... More

We were left very disappointed because we left hungry! The menu concept is strange, three different menus: the buffet with sushi is ok, not wow, average and you can get as much as you want, second menu is a starter 'choose one dish only to share between 2' and third the main, again only choice of 1 type of dish...

Surprise dinner for Valentines this year. Opting for for the set menu, we trusted the chef with the dishes. We'd heard only great things and were really looking forward to coming. Staff were friendly although didn't seem to listen, meaning when we thought we had requested our preferences they came very differently to the table. Simple requests to replace chilli... More

Awesome food and even better crowd for their famous dress up 80s and 90s brunch, very generous with the booze as well which always helps for a good night out after.

Me and my friend went here yesterday, really excited about this 'party brunch' which also promises very good food experience. We were left very disappointed because we left hungry! The whole menu concept is really strange, three different menus: first one contains lots of smaller nibbles where you can get as much as you want from, second menu is a... More

The ambience and music is amazing at this place and the food some of the best Japanese we've had in the Middle East - however, we're somewhat disappointed with the staff as they act as they're 'too cool to work there' It's a minor thing, but still takes away the impression of a perfect place

For those of you who love sushi you may have read my other reviews where I try the so called best sushi places in various cities around the world. I often travel alone so write the reviews on the spot. In fact I am just eating a piece of O-Toro now. My credentials are that I have lived in Japan... More
