I love every single food in the menu especially the chocolate fondant, I always order it when I go there. They are very professional of their career, it’s a very quiet restaurant in a very nice place (city walk). I went there a lot and...I will never stop going there.More

Food is perfect. Whatever you take is good. We generally stick to Sushis ,Sashimis, and all kind of California rolls, but 8'have already tried meat and it is nice as well. Although we are going there quite often the staff is still very "cold". Smiles...are very rare. Anyhow, we go for the menu and it is great.More

I recently went to Yabani and found the food mostly good. Shrimp tempura crab salad sushi roll.I had shrimp salad which and it had lots of cucumbers in it. Not the best I tried but it was OK. I also ordered a sushi roll and...that was very delicious. However, the shrimp tempura was uber lousy. Cannot deny the good service though.More

Looking forward to trying Japanese food and we left very disappointed with the service and timing of how the food came out. My beef was lovely, however the steamed vegetables were cold and my cousins daughters rice was like it had been defrosted. Very poor!

Yabani is a comfortable restaurant at The Walk, we were the only two guests at lunch and waiter gave us all his attention. I have personally find the California filled with tempura well done and edamani were fresh and sweet. I will be probably be...back to try other plates and see id it is lively at night.More

The food is excellent, in the lovely city walk. It's family friendly & clean. The stuff are friendly as usual in dubai. They have a lot of variety of sushi & sashimi; the quality is good. It's a bit pricey so you need to check...your budget before you go.More
