A firm favourite amongst fans of Japanese cuisine, the award-winning restaurant Katsuya has been serving inventive dishes and impressing visitors since it launched at Hyde Hotel Dubai. With an enviable backdrop of the stunning Burj Khalifa and the breathtaking Dubai canal, the renowned celebrity hotspot has just reopened its breezy outdoor dining space complete with a new cocktail bar promising a fresh take on Japanese flavors, an elevated beverage menu and premium shisha flavours served in the adjacent lounge.
Set in a beautiful modern Japanese interior with red hues, ‘daruma dolls’, famous Kaws artefacts, illuminated photographs and Asian dragon design touches, Katsuya continues to serve specialty cocktails, unique rolls, and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters under the helm of Head Chef Pavel Nigai, who is known for skillfully translating Japanese flavors for the discerning food connoisseurs.
Old and new diners alike would be delighted to rediscover the unexpected and memorable world of Katsuya, which has changed the face of Japanese cuisine. Katsuya allows the sophisticated palate to taste the finest and most diverse ingredients in their menu like Hojicha, white balsamic pearls, and sea urchin imported from Italy, Japan and USA. Pavel’s original recipes are also some of Katsuya Dubai’s best-selling dishes like the Lobster Dynamite Roll, Chilean Seabass, A5 Japanese Wagyu Sando and Spicy Chicken.
While people often talk about Katsuya’s signature cuisine, design and hospitality, the mixology team has also certainly outdone themselves by creating a beverage menu that would please both longtime and new fans of the brand. All of these features contribute to Katsuya’s success including winning ‘Best East Asian Restaurant’ at the recently concluded Leaders in F&B Awards by Hotel and Catering News.
“We are excited to welcome everyone as we extend the experience of Katsuya to our outdoor dining space, cocktail and shisha lounge. Through the mastery and the exacting standards of Chef Pavel and the team, Katsuya has remained consistent with its quality that has attracted guests to come back for more. And we are confident the terrace in this season will further enhance every visit,” shared Luke James, General Manager of Hyde Hotel Dubai.
The newly relaunched terrace exudes a romantic vibe that’s perfect for cozying up in the coming winter season. With a glittering backdrop of the Burj Khalifa, Katsuya Dubai is also expecting a busy festive season with the team already getting reservations for New Year’s Eve parties.
