We were at OKKU in December for their Friday disco-themed brunch. To be honest, the sound of any 'party brunch' makes me edgy. Usually too little food, too much drink (difficult to achieve with a brunch) and inebriated patrons falling off chairs or into the laps of other diners while they gyrate to "Dancing Queen" in a space that's tighter...

I would highly recommend the salmon sashimi small plate and the maki selection... fantastic. But what was out of this world is the dynamite black codd... OMG really outstanding. We had a couple of delicious cocktails and our waiter Simon was the most pleasant waiter ever. Great ambiance, décor and music but with very low lights. I would advise to... More

There is no doubt that as you walk into the place you find it beautiful and charming. My Husband and I went for dinner and everything was good except for the time of service. They prolong the time you spend there by serving you slowly, that was the down part.

I love Japanese food and as I've been many times in Japan I know how its supposed to taste like and Okku surely is phantastic! Very high quality, very friendly staff... what I loved was the music (dance/ electro) and the bar at the entrance! Spectacular.

My first time to Okku Dubai was a few years ago on a date. This time around I was celebrating my first year anniversary (with the same guy)! The food is always fresh and presented beautifully. Highly recommend getting a bunch of small plates and sushi to share.

Excellent restaurant with appetizing food and very good service. The salad was delicious and the black cod wonderful. I must not forget the desert which was an amazing mouth watering chocolate fondant. The ambiance music makes the whole atmosphere very relaxing. Will definitely be back to experiment new dishes and tastes.
