Mori Sushi-Downtown Dubai 

Mori Sushi
Mori Sushi is a recent addition to Dubai’s sushi scene. Mori Sushi has outlets in Brazil and Egypt. It is the first Mori Sushi outlet in GCC. Having opened few months ago, it already seems to be popular with the sushi lovers in Dubai. When I visited them last Monday for lunch, it was busy and buzzing with diners. 

Located at the Tower 2 of the trendy Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown Dubai, Mori Sushi offers fusion Sushi. You can expect traditional Japanese dishes with an international twist. 

Minimalistic decor
The interiors of the place is elegant and minimalistic. The seating is comfortable, the venue is bright and well lit. It has an inviting and friendly atmosphere. They also have an outdoor dining area. 

The menu is elaborate, with a huge variety of Sushi, Nigiri, Maki and Sashimi selection. You will certainly be spoilt for choice. They also offer various combo platter. 

Peach Lemon drink

After being seated in a cosy corner of the restaurant, I ordered Peach Lemon for my drink. It was a refreshing and delicious drink made of lemon and peach juice with fresh mint. It came in a big jar and I shared with my friend Gillian. 

Apart from coffee, tea, soft drinks and fresh juices, Mori Sushi also offers special mocktails.

Corn tempura

We ditched the soup and ordered the salad and appetizer. When I am dining at a Japanese restaurant, I never miss the opportunity to order Edamame. At Mori Sushi, the edamame comes with 2 kinds of toppings and we opted for the sweet chili one. The steamed edamame was seasoned well and had a nice sweet and spicy flavor.

The Sweet Corn Tempura that we ordered for our appetizer was crispy, light and very addictive. And comes totally recommended.

Here’s a selection of Sushi that Gillian and I tried:

From the Mori Greenery Mood(vegetarian) we sampled:

Sushi selection

  • Mango Green Roll had a tasty combination of cucumber, cream cheese, fresh mango, asparagus and spinach.
  • Nigiri Nabo had rice topped with white radish. The radish added a juicy and crunchy factor to it.
  • Oshii Sushi was topped with mushrooms, cucumber and cream cheese. I liked the fact that, it didn’t lose it’s flavor even after adding a good amount of cream cheese. 

Cucumber Temaki

  • Kappa Temaki or cucumber temaki is a large cone shaped hand roll stuffed with rice and cucumber. You can order it by piece and that’s what we did. This was the only dish that didn’t tickle our taste buds. 

Some of the other Sushi that my friend tried:

Seafood

  • Gunkan Crispy Tuna had a combination of rice, tuna, spicy mayonnaise and panko. It had a mild hint of spice that made it likeable.
  • Fried Crispy Rice(Shrimp & Salmon) It had crisp shrimp with bits of salmon. In one word when I asked Gill to describe it and she said utterly Delicious was the word.
  • She found the Mozarella Shrimp outstanding and the cheese blended so well and would definitely make it likeable even for people who are not particularly seafood eaters.
  • Lemongrass Salmon had a subtle combination with mild flavor.

Toffee Cake pudding
For dessert we ordered the Toffee Pudding Cake. The cake was super moist and spongy and it was topped with toffee sauce. It was served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It tasted absolutely divine. 

Overall, we had a wonderful experience. The food, the service and the atmosphere is great. Reasonably priced too. Hands down, Mori Sushi is one of the top Sushi places in town.
