Sushi, being an obsession for so many folks out there and especially fancy girls, has also proven that Japanese cuisine is so much more than just rolls. In fact the more one discovers the traditional side of infamous Japanese dining the more delicious it gets. Ramusake restaurant at the Double Tree by Hilton in JBR is a perfect example. I was very excited to barge my way into Ramusake on their popular Ladies Nights and that experience led to my personal obsession with the restaurant.

First of all, Ramusake is in style. It’s the place to be and a place to watch the crowd. Always being over booked on Wednesday nights they are also being stormed by the most beautiful girls from the Dubai and further. No matter how Insta famous you get (true story) there is no way you can reserve a table unless you call far in advance. My attempts to get a table for four on short notice failed miserably. On a brighter note, there are always a few spots left for the Friday brunch which, in my opinion, is the best way to discover the mystery of Ramusake’s success.

My usual Friday brunch strategy is to arrive early. The next move is to convince your server you are the most mega super famous person on Instagram to score an extra cocktail and some fantastic bar magic footage. They are easy to convince and it always works for me :) Once your arrival drink is sorted, look through the pre-set menu and agree to everything they offer. The food at Ramusake is so good.

The moment the salted edamame beans appear at your table, start ordering and tasting sake. Nothing compliments Japanese cuisine better than this magical beverage, neither jasmine green tea nor Asahi. Sake, based on processed fermented rice, delivers a little kick of happiness with the every sip as well as a balanced taste that works in a harmony with any dish. No matter what you are sampling - a dessert, sashimi or chicken skewers, sake will deliver an accompanying flavour turning a meal into a feast.

While brunching at Ramusake it’s easy to sneak a peek at the chefs putting together rolls, main dishes and cooking their way through the experience. The concept of an open kitchen is indeed my favourite way of dining. I love to watch men cook. There is something truly magical when ingredients imported from all over the world appear in the form of something you never knew existed.

That’s Ramusake

This place might be very touristy, but definitely worth a visit. It has a beautiful view on the poolside and the beach.

The food was good, we had a.o. the tuna tartar and that was really heaven.

For my liking food came a bit fast, but that seems to be their concept, it is not a accomodation where you will spend your whole evening dining.

Great service. Great food, just amazing. Great variety, and some really innovative dishes. Try the Sangria, a great twist on what you expect.

Ramusake tries to give the impression of a laid back Japanese eatery but then charges top dollar while failing to deliver value for money. The cocktails start at AED63 (US$17) which has become the average in Dubai. We started with scallop truffle which is a bit misleading as it should be called “scallops with truffle-flavoured oil” as the only apparent signs of truffle were some minuscule black specks scattered on the scallops. The greatest disappointment was the okonomiyaki which was too heavy with too much flour and very different to the one we enjoyed in Japan. Dinner for two including 4 cocktails came to just under AED1000 (US$270). On the up side, the staff are efficient and friendly. Would not recommend this restaurant and instead would rather go to Okku or Katana for Japanese fusion food in Dubai.

The place is absolutely with a nice atmosphere, Japanese mix of classic and industrial style, and good soul/black music on background. Food delicious and sushi on top quality. Really recommended
