Located at W Dubai – The Palm, Akira Back is famed for its unique take on Japanese cuisine, uber-stylish setting, and stunning views of the Dubai skyline. The restaurant is rewriting the week with a special promotion for its always-popular Batafurai Ladies Night as we speak – but more on that later.
A brand-new dining experience dubbed the Explore Menu has taken over the venue on Tuesday evenings, showcasing the restaurant’s most iconic dishes. This family-style eight-course celebration delves into Akira Back’s culinary history, highlighting its groundbreaking Japanese-Korean fusion cuisine. Guests can tuck into the savoury Tuna Pizza adorned with umami aioli and fragrant white truffle oil, the tender Salmon Tataki accompanied by mustard su-miso, the Scallops in half shell, and the restaurant’s signature AB Tacos featuring premium Wagyu beef and roasted tomato ponzu.
Following the entrees, guests can indulge in Akira Back’s renowned Red Dragon Roll, boasting shrimp tempura and succulent Crab Mix, and the Perfect Storm Roll, comprising shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, salmon belly aburi, and chipotle mayo. The Explore Menu’s main courses offer a beguiling blend of Japanese-Korean flavours, and choices include the Josper Grilled Chicken with garlic spinach or the Jidori Chicken crowned with potato purée and teriyaki sauce.
The Explore Menu concludes with a sweet sensation – a Yuzu Citrus dessert adorned with sweet sable crumbles and strawberry gelato. Akira Back Dubai’s Explore Menu is available every Tuesday from 7pm to midnight, starting from AED 299 per person.
Elsewhere, ladies can kick start the week – and their Akira Back journey – with Batafurai Ladies Night. It takes place every Monday from 7pm until 11pm, and ladies can expect a one-of-a-kind experience where two hours of unlimited selected beverages and a delectable selection of sharing plates flow seamlessly to the table for AED 250 per head.

Hosted on the terrace or within the chic confines of the restaurant, diners can indulge in a sharing-style lunch of Akira Back signatures, free-flowing beverages and live entertainment.

Akira Back Dubai has long been a firm favourite of the FACT team when it comes to chic Japanese eats. We’re not sure whether it’s the tasty Japanese delicacies, the skyline views or the seductive atmosphere that captivates us most each time we pass through the vortex-like entryway illuminated in neon lighting.
Go, experience it for yourself.
