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

The place is fabulous, service is great and food is of high quality. However, it is very expensive and I didn't think that the quality was wroth that price ranger comparing to other Japanese restaurants I went to all around the world, including the best ones.

1) If you look for a Japanese restaurant, pass your way. The cuisine is Japanese inspired nouvelle cuisine. The cooks aren't even Japanese (nor Chinese, nor Korean) : one of them had his hachimaki (headband) upside down. 2) The ambiance is the one of a club : live DJ, dark lighting. 3) Prices are high. You'll come out at 600AED... More

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...
