Until today, I had to travel abroad to satisfy my cravings. A friend Ikuko hinted us towards the restaurant. The good news is they have the best ramen, and coming... More

Have been to Hanabi quite a few times, food is great, staff are friendly, and it's all very resonant priced compared to some other high end Japanese restaurants. Good for couples and groups. The Korean restaurant next door (Sonamu) is also a great place to go. I'd recommend booking one of the karaoke rooms if you want to try something... More

I had been to the restaurant a few years back and had a good experience. I decided to try again and wasn't disappointed. I was also be and sat with the chef choosing the Bento box.

Waiter was not very good with english, drinks and food took ages. we had to keep calling them for clearing of used dishes and glasses. At 10.30 they took last orders... More

Maybe "average" is what defines this restaurant best. Average food and average prices on the lower side of Dubai standards. Buffet night has lots of quantity but not impressive quality. Weekend set lunch has good prices and slightly better quality.

Hanabi 火花, means sparkles but I think it's losing them. I've been a regular for the past two years with average a visit per month. The food standard remains above average and very good value for money during lunch. Today I went there for the main purpose of eating eel,Unagi. When I ask the server if Unagi is still available...
