This contemporary American-Japanese restaurant serves up a host of exciting and enticing dishes perfect for getting the taste of Asia while holidaying in Dubai.
Located in the Abu Dhabi Beach Rotana resort as one of 12 restaurants available to pick from, this one is definitely worth a try and is considered to be one of the UAE’s top dining destinations.
The ‘in-the-round’ seating style means that not only can you enjoy the incredible food that is prepared at Benihana, but you also get a front row seat to watch it be cooked and prepared by the highly experienced chefs.
Serving up the likes of gyoza, nigri, sashimi and a host of other fantastic sushi dishes, you could visit twice in a row and still have lots of incredible options to choose from.
Although sushi restaurants aren’t traditionally seen as the most child or family friendly of restaurants, Benihana welcomes all families to enjoy its tasty and authentic cuisine so you don’t need to worry about leaving your kids in your hotel room.
As well as serving up sushi, you can also order the likes of Japanese Wagu beef, teppanyaki and a selection of soup or noodle dishes if you want something warm instead.
Originally opening in the United States and claiming to have been one of the first restaurants to bring Japanese food into the mainstream, you can relax knowing that you are in good hands.
Décor wise you’ll find traditional wooden Japanese features, red tables and a stylish and quirky art pillar giving you a brief history of the restaurant itself.
Since it’s located in a hotel, you don’t even have to leave your resort to enjoy this restaurant and, the best part is, when you are done with your meal, you don’t have to travel far to get back to your room after you’ve likely lulled yourself into a food coma.
