New Japanese Restaurant, Tori No Su, at Abu Dhabi’s Jumeirah

Tori No Su, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers

Tori No Su, Jumeirah at Etihad TowersThere’s no shortage of excellent hotel restaurants in Abu Dhabi. (See our first-hand report here.) The latest eatery to make a splash on the emirate’s dining scene is Tori No Su, located on Podium Level of the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers. It’s an urban setting; the design is sleek with “dramatic interior accents” and living grass walls. Tori No Su combines both restaurant and lounge elements. You’ll find live Teppanyaki and Robatayaki counters, a Sushi bar, and a beverage bar where you can taste the house signature mocktail known as 'Tei-en' or 'Japanese Garden'—a mélange of fresh kiwi, cucumber and apple juice garnished with a traditional Shisō leaf.

In the kitchen, chef Ando emphasizes fresh, seasonal ingredients in “hito kuchi” (bite-sized nibbles) at the bar; skewered delights at the Robatayaki counter; and more sophisticated platters in the dining room. The day’s catch is served as sashimi or sushi. Order up the “omakase” course and you’ll have a surprise tasting of dishes based on the chef’s whim. Tori No Su is open for lunch from 12:00 - 3:30 pm and for dinner from 7- 11:30 pm. For more information about the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, visit
