One of the gems amongst the dining collection is KISHI, a classy Japanese restaurant serving authentic Japanese cuisine with a flair of the orient, offering some of the finest cuisine from the west of Tokyo, at the Sushi Bar and Teppan Grill, a sophisticated dining experience and the only sushi conveyer belt system in Abu Dhabi.

When we heard they offered a Friday Brunch, that to an Easter themed one, it was a no brainer, we just had to go give them a try and we must say they don’t let you down.

The Venue

Bright and airy with dark wood furnishings and floor to ceiling windows offering excellent views of the sporting facilities KISHI has a quiet and elegant vibe about it, we could see the place was filling up with families which is a great sign.

The brunch buffer is spread around the central island with has the Teppan Grill at one end and the sushi conveyer is in action with a myriad of colorful plates moving around in perfect order. You can choose to sit by the conveyer if you can’t control your sushi cravings or there are nice corner tables with the fab views as well.

The Food

The Sushi Bar and the Teppan Grill are the stars of the show and there is a decent selection of salads and sashimi to start with along with the endless plates of sushi begging to be grabbed.

We grab a few plates and some of the freshest Tuna we have seen in a while and settle down to start, the California Rolls along with the Shrimp Tempura were the highlights. There lobster rolls are killer, not to be missed

We spied the grilled fish smothered in veggies waiting for us and that became the next stop, on the way we couldn’t resist a few of those delicate rolls just next to the fish, the rich and creamy lemon butter sauce was just perfect with the fish.

We had to try the grill and we ordered some sirloin strips medium along with some of the chicken which were delivered to the table in no time, we are very particular about our steaks and are glad to say the Chef definitely knows his meats and his grill, the flavors were spot on and the meat perfectly medium with a smoky char that only a Teppan Grill produces.

Time for dessert, there is a lovely selection all safely under glass domes with bright colors and Easter eggs all around, we loved the strawberry cheesecake and the chocolate tarts.

The Verdict

Its a great place for a family brunch in a nice ambiance, the selection of food might not be massive but what they do they do it well and that is what matters. The flavors are on point and each dish was just perfect.

The service is excellent, we never had to ask for our glasses to be topped off and the Chef visited us inviting us to his sushi masterclass that he hosts every Saturday which we will be trying soon.
