If we had to choose the most popular Japanese restaurant in Bahrain, we'd be very hard pressed indeed, but this small eatery in Adliya may just edge out the culinary competition. A large number of regulars return several nights a week to cash in on the new-wave Japanese contemporary cuisine. If you haven't been before, you wouldn't be far off if you envisioned a Nobu-esque atmosphere and food options, but with none of the stuffiness that can typically be found in similarly swanky establishments. As for the menu, it's impressive to say the very least; a number of mouth-watering fusion dishes satisfy authentic Japanese and international taste buds, and the food presentation is edible art. Our favourite spot is the low-seating tatami tables or the sushi bar for maximum cultural saturation.
