The internationally renowned Japanese eatery originally made a name for itself in Spain - with outlets in Madrid, Barcelona and Marbella whilst there's also a branch housed in The Galleria on Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi - its first international location.
The diverse Asian menu features classic Japanese recipes as well as innovative creations such as 99 Sushi Bar's famous crispy tiger prawn tempura dipped in a spicy rémoulade and corn-fed chicken gyozas with saffron glaze, toasted almond and spicy passion fruit candy alongside inventive twists on traditional maki and sashimi.
For the interiors, expect plush velvets and striking walls in hues of red and black, set off by ornate gold fixtures. Seating ranges between clusters of tables, or dining robata-style. Check back for updates.
Expect some of 99 Sushi’s signature dishes, such as Gunkan Sushi (Uni Toro, Caviar), Spicy Tuna Tartar, Foie Gras Nigiri and the famous crispy tiger prawn tempura dipped in spicy sauce.
The restaurant will be made up of a sophisticated restaurant, lounge and six private areas. Additionally, a spacious outdoor terrace will boast the kind of incredible views overlooking the Burj Khalifa that you might expect from the Address Downtown.
Dubai’s 99 Sushi Bar’s restaurant is expected to be open daily from midday to midnight, whilst the outdoor lounge will stay open until 2am for those late-night tipples. Timings are subject to change.
