We all know that Jumeirah Al Naseem has been ranked amongst the top 10 must visit hotels this year, and that’s where Katsuya is located too! The restaurant is an artistic union of Master Sushi chef Katsuya Uechi’s fresh take on Japanese classics with Design Impresario Philippe Starck’s sleek and sultry interiors.
It’s a beautiful venue with huge glass windows that overlook the one-of-a-kind Turtle Lagoon and provides spectacular views of the Burj Al Arab, lending a relaxed holiday feel to your dining experience. Besides, you can choose to be seated outdoors, indoors at the sushi bar, or in the ultra-modern bar and restaurant area which has a sophisticated yet comfortable feel with gleaming white tables and warm cozy couches.
We had been meaning to go here for a long time and were totally thrilled when we finally got the chance. Just by looking at the menu you can judge the kind of awesome culinary experience you are going to have. A lot of unique stuff and tough choices!
We started off with spicy Edamame and the Crispy Brussels. We also tried the Creamy Rock Shrimp which was the perfect blend of flavor and texture. Moreover, the Yellowtail Sashimi with jalapenos is something that you should order on repeat!
Guess what? The world famous Wagyu Beef sliders were there too, totally outstanding and in fact even better than what most places serve. The Katsuya Special Ceviche was as special as its name, and scrumptious!
Don’t these sliders look too amazing to resist?! Wait till you set an eye on the Hibachi below!
Next, Hollywood rolls and Toro Tuna Belly served as great choices and the Hibachi too was outstanding and was served with a variety of sauces that enhanced the taste for the better. The Shrimp Robata is another great dish which shouldn’t be missed when you are at Katsuya.
Hollywood Rolls anyone? Try some rock shrimp tempura roll too!
For dessert we had the Brownie Toban which was overflowing with deliciousness in the form of walnuts, brownie, ice cream and chocolate sauce, and the very famous Mochi that flaunted authentic taste.
Overall, the food is out of the world and will leave you raving about it once you’ve had a taste. It is excellent value for money and the staff is so courteous they’d make you feel at home. You are simply going to be bowled over the delectable combination of Japanese and Californian cuisine presented in such massive portions that they are superb for sharing too! So, if you want to surprise your guests or dine out on some special occasion, Katsuya is the place to go!
