Our experience...

Service: 10/10. Extremely professional and welcoming! Very easy to get a hold of a waiter even though the place is packed.

What we loved: There's always been a hype about Ramusake and this brunch experience certainly lived up to it. The food and service were definitely the most impressive. Great selection of starters, dumplings, and mains. For starters, you get to order unlimited edamame, sweet potato fries, and squid. The sweet potato fries are a MUST and the sauce it comes with it absolutely delicious, you can never get enough of it. Next, they bring a huge sushi platter to your table, salmon, tuna, etc. The salmon/avocado ones were our fave, the others were a bit too different in terms of taste for us, personally. Once that's done, you receive a bowl (4 pieces each) of seafood dumplings and chicken dumplings, these were mouthwatering!! Again, a must try if you're heading to Ramusake. Before desserts, they bring a tray of chicken skewers for everyone (2 trays - 10/12 pieces each), very tasty and well done. Overall, the food at this place is undoubtedly fantastic, highly recommend Ramusake if you're looking for some quality Japanese food in Dubai. What's also nice about this brunch is that they take orders until 5/6 pm even though the brunch says it ends at 4 pm.

What we didn’t like as much: One thing that was a little disappointing was the quantity of food sometimes. The dumplings should have been one bowl person, however it was just 3-4 bowls for a table of 15-17. Wish they had a better selection of sushi.

Ambiance: Super packed! Deep house music and good vibes for 3hrs+. The entertainment element is provided by guest DJ Paul Svenson spinning out Deep House tracks easing you in to the evening.
