The chorus of “irasshaimase” from the staff as you walk in to Izakaya will ring bells with anyone who has visited Tokyo. The staff’s Harajuku Girl-inspired outfits are fun too.
Lively and social. There’s a lot to look at in Izakaya, from the occasional bursts of flame from the teppanyaki station, to Wasabi Girl, who patrols the restaurant in a neon green wig doling out fresh wasabi to diners.
WHAT TO ORDER
We could have easily eaten a double helping of the piping hot chunks of lobster tempura, which came with wasabi mayo for dipping.
The cool, casual vibe makes Izakaya good for girls’ nights or laidback dinner dates, but the quirky touches mean its fun for families too.
Ask Wasabi Girl to use her playing cards to determine your personality type. In case you were wondering, she told us that unusual outcomes “delight our spirit and illuminate our day”.
We applaud Izakaya’s efforts to stand out from the crowd in Dubai’s sea of sushi restaurants.
