This new Friday night brunch is an outstanding option for a great Japanese food brunch in Abu Dhabi.
Start with the incredible Ba:TE platter, on fire with maki rolls, sashimi, a good ceviche and the best Japanese tacos. Choose which appetisers you'd like from the menu and order both these and the platter as often as you like. Be sure to get the don't-miss gyoza, chicken popcorn and the best crispy sweet potato! We love the tenderloin for main and the black cod but it was the yakitori that really makes us swoon. The dessert platter is pretty, perfect for lovers of mochi, matcha and some absolutely outstanding chocolate fondant.
It's not a stretch to say that drinks are the best in town - we'll leave it to you to confirm that!
