Hashi at the Armani Hotel is definitely one of my favourite places for Japanese food. It has re-opened its doors after the summer and has brought a new brunch concept with it. You will find a well-dressed and refined crowd with many regular guests being the residents of the Burj Khalifa who enjoy the convenience of its location, and generally people who want to experience a myriad of flavours. Since Spencer Wadama joined as GM of The Armani Hotel, he has picked a superb F&B team including Chef Jimmy who heads up Hashi to bring a higher level of service and quality to the refined and discreet Armani property.
If you are not pressed for time it is also a brilliant place for a celebratory brunch followed by a short staycation at the hotel.
The Friday brunch includes a live violinist playing, and the food on display are literally jewels on ice. Some specials include beef tatami with balsamic sesame dressing, jumbo shrimps with uni cream and shimeji mushrooms, Angus tenderloin with leek miso and Black cod with hajikami.
If you wait until October when the weather is cooler you can sit outside, enjoy the fountains and the best view of the Burj Khalifa. We do recommend booking as the secret is out that it is one of the finest Japanese restaurants in Dubai.
Hashi is open every evening, and on Fridays brunch is from noon – 4pm.
