When most people think of Japanese cuisine, sushi automatically comes to mind. At Hyatt Regency Dubai’s Miyako, the menu is ready to take you on a full culinary journey through Japan, proving that a good Japanese meal gives more than just Sashimi and Maki. The oldest Japanese restaurant in Dubai, having opened in 1987, Miyako has recently been blessed with a full refurbishment, providing stunning interiors that show off the best of Japanese design.
With clean-cut lines mixing wood and slate in perfect harmony, the neutral colours in Miyako relax the mind, while the open kitchen keeps all guests entertained. The impressive new design splits the restaurant into three sections, including a private dining Teppanyaki room, the main dining area with a sushi bar and an intimate Tatami room.
The menu takes guests on a culinary journey through Japan, with dishes from a multitude of different regions of the country sitting side-by-side on the menu with much loved classics. For sushi-lovers the options are vast, while the flavoursome rice bowls, heart-warming Ramen, traditional Udon noodle dishes and Yakitori barbeque are ideal for those that want to delve a little further into this ancient cuisine, washing every bite down with a cup of warm Japanese tea.
The smart Bento Box business lunch menu provides the perfect getaway from the office, while the intimate Tatami room lends itself to larger parties, business meetings or celebrations. For an even more authentic experience, guests can reserve the Teppanyaki room and see the master chefs cook an assortment of succulent meats and fresh fish live in front of them on the grill.
Although your palate will be kept happy as you make your way through your Japanese feast, the relaxed and friendly team really adds a unique touch to your dining experience. Greeted by every member of the team as your enter, the smiles stretch far and wide and instantly make you relax in these chic, moody interiors. Their friendly manners are genuine and they are sincerely excited to see you travel to Japan with every bite and experience something new.
Meaning ‘the Capital’ in Japanese, the newly refurbished Miyako continues to set the benchmark for authentic Japanese cuisine in the city. Having pioneered the Japanese dining experience in Dubai, there is no doubt that with such stunning interiors and outstanding food Miyako will continue to lead the way for many years to come.
