Kuuraku

Located at: 48B Park Street Mews, Park Street, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka Visited on: 23 February, 2022 We started the night off with some Miso Soup (LKR 260).

Direct delivery via : @teatimerocks / 0777720594 Tried on : 01 Sep, 2021 Mochi is back with a bang at t-Lounge by Dilmah, and this time they’ve got six varieties of the increasingly popular hand-made Japanese glutinous rice cakes.

Located at: Ground Floor, Al Ghurair Centre, Al Rigga Road, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 14 & 16 Oct, 2019 Atisuto is a cosy and casual Japanese restaurant that we enjoy visiting from time to time.

The Dubai Diaries: Wagamama @ The Dubai Mall

Located at: Financial Center Road, Downtown Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 12 Oct, 2019 We’ve walked past this Asian and Japanese chain on the lower ground floor many times before, and decided to make a stop for lunch on this particular day.

Located at: Baniyas Road, Deira, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 11 Oct, 2019 Radisson Blu has restructured their Friday Brunch spread a bit since our last visit, and it has quite a neat disposition.

Located at: 3rd Floor, Tower #2, Al Ghurair Centre, Al Rigga Road, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 10 Oct, 2019 Being hidden away on the third floor of one of Al Ghurair’s towers certainly hasn’t dampened the popularity of this place!

The Dubai Diaries: Motomachi @ Dubai Festival City

Located at: Crescent Street, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 20 Apr, 2019 Here’s a good, casual spot for a decent Japanese meal.

EDO @ Colombo City Centre

Located at: 137 Sir James Pieris Mawatha, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka Visited on: 30 Nov, 2018 Located at the far end of the second floor of the mall, this place might be easy to miss if you are unaware of it. Walking in through the restaurant entrance, I didn’t imagine it to be as spacious as…

The Dubai Diaries: Minato @ Radisson Blu

Located at: Baniyas Road, Deira, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 18 Nov, 2018 As Japanese as this place might be, it flies the Sri Lankan flag high – the head chef is from our little island nation, and we have met several chefs here over the years who have also hailed from the motherland. That…
