“Excellent Excellent and we EAT sushi!!”
Review of Tori No Su

Tori No Su
Ranked #40 of 2,168 Restaurants in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Japanese

Restaurant details
Dining options: After-hours, Lunch, Reservations
Description: Nothing excites the taste buds more than the subtleties employed in the arrangement of fresh seasonal produce to create Japanese cuisine. Like fine Japanese calligraphy, where the strokes can be bold and emphatic, and then delicate and refined, Chef Ando applies decades of mastery and skill as a kaiseki - trained chef, and takes all who visit on a culinary journey in Tori No Su. With a mood setting bar, teppan yaki counter and a dim lit lounge style set up, Tori No Su's atmospherics perfectly suit the cuisine and Japanese beverages on offer.

I could compare this restaurant to our all time favorite sushi restaurant, Maki (located in Beirut, Kuwait, and Bahrain)....this was phenomenal! The ENTIRE order came out super super fast. We ordered 5 rolls, spicy tuna, spicy salmon, soft shell crab, philadelphia, and unagi (bbq eel). We also ordered fried rice that was amazing. We also ordered juice drinks, and they were amazing BUT such a small amount :(((

Seriously one of the best Japanese restaurant in the world (no joke), and we've been to several.

Service was great, as mentioned in previous comments, they do come to your table quite often. It wasn't a huge deal for us.

One of the best Japanese restaurants I have tasted around the world. The service is excellent, friendly and smiling. The food is exquisite with value for money. I recommend to taste the wagyu sushi it's delicious. Ask for YuYu she will make ur dinner a pleasure to share.

Big sushi fans as we are, we looked for a sushi place on tripadvisor and we found Tori No Su. The restaurant is situated at the Etihal towers which looked impressive but expensive at the same time.

We were scared the restaurant would be out of our price range too but it was affordable. Tori No Su offers great sushi at a reasonable price and offers great wines too. Service was impeccable (especially Min is a great asset because he made us feel comfortable at the restaurant)!

We had a sushi/sashimi platter, a bottle of white wine and 2 deserts. Total cost was about 680 Dirham.

If you're in Abu Dhabi and you are looking for some quality time while eating some sushi, Tori No Su is definitely worth a visit!

Tori No Su has a very special authentic vibe to it, the interior and decorations remind me of a traditional japanese sushi restaurant, just in a larger scale. The place makes you feel at home and relaxed, the only thing which kind of spoiled the settings was the staff "running" around due to the place being busy (only half full) Anyhow, that was the only minus to an otherwise very nice evening with excellent quality of sushi - it is amazing how difficult it is these days to find proper sushi with high quality ingredients and fresh fish - however Tori No So delivered this made by all Japanese chefs that were all doing a very good job. The preparing area is open for the guests to watch while the create their master pieces. One comment to mention - we had the sushi / sashimi platter for two persons which comes with all together 20 pieces of sushi/sashimi, 6 maki, 6 nigiri and 8 sashimi. This platters is far from being good value for money. you pay 240 AED for this, which in my eyes is too much. At least make it look a little more special when presenting it. The two maki rolls we ordered on the side were much better looking and cost a fraction of the price.
To summ it all up, Tori No Su is definitely a place we will visit again as we are both sushi lovers and haven't found a place in Abu Dhabi that live up to our standards before visiting TNS.
