Tori No Su, Review

Adjacent to Jumeirah at Etihad Towers you will find Tori No Su, Jumeriah’s fine dining Japanese restaurant. This sleek, modern and award winning Japanese restaurant offers contemporary dishes, carefully crafted by kaiseki-trained chef Ando. With its sushi bar, teppanyaki counter and passionate chefs, Tori No Su provides a lively setting in which to enjoy chef Ando’s superb kaiseki-style menu.

You will enjoy fresh fish from the sushi bar, ‘iron plate’ dishes from the Teppanyaki counter, or something slow-grilled from the Robatayaki counter. Alternatively, in traditional Japanese style, you could order an “omakase” course, whereby Chef Ando and his team will create a surprising selection of dishes on demand.

As we enter Tori No Su we are greeted by the restaurant manager and escorted to our table. Tori No Su boasts stylish décor, yellow marble is backlit, adding a sense of tranquility, large lamps hang from the ceiling exuding luxury and sophistication, exactly what you would expect from Jumeirah.

We are guided through the menu by the team. The menu features an extensive range of Japanese delicacies. Finally after much contemplation we are ready to order. For our hot appetizer we select the hotate ebi gyoza, prawn and scallop dim sum. This dish is beautifully presented. Each bite offers a sensational mouthful of thick succulent prawn and scallop.

For the main course we order off Tori No Su specials menu. We select the gindara miso yaki, black cod marinated with miso. This black cod is the talk of the town, so we are very eager to see if it lives up to the hype. We taste and pause with excitement…..this dish is divine. The black cod literally melts at the sight of our fork, beautifully marinated this dish offers a ‘mmm’ moment with every bite.

To compliment the main course we order the Wagyu beef udon noodles. This dish consists of wheat noodles, shiitake, leeks, shimeji and banno negi. Thick cuts of Wagyu beef are perfectly tossed to create a tasteful dish that perfectly complements the black cod.

As the foodies amongst you will know, Tori No Su was one of the participating restaurants in Dining and Nightlife Abu Dhabi’s very first Restaurant Month. The special restaurant month menu the team at Tori No Su created was brilliant. Here’s our review of their special restaurant month menu.

For starters, the three kind of appetizer which consisted of spicy beef salad, grilled salmon with miso mayo and lobster croquettes. All served in a traditional bento box. The spicy beef salad was perfectly balanced allowing us to enjoy the slight spiciness without it overpowering the rest of this dish. The lobster croquettes were amazing, this was the first time we had tried them but be warned they are seriously moreish.

For the main course the grilled seafoods which included salmon miso-zuke, prawn teriyaki, kingfish miso mayo with vegetable sesame sauce. The salmon miso-zuke stood out with its thick texture and rich flavor.

To conclude our culinary journey at Tori No Su our favorite dessert, mochi ice cream, served with tropical fruits and raspberry sauce.

The food, service and atmosphere at Tori No Su is exceptional. We would highly rate this as one of the best Japanese restaurants in Abu Dhabi.
