Uchi is Dubai’s jubilant new Japanese dining sensation

Say hello to Dubai’s hottest new Japanese restaurant.

Dubai is gearing up for a power-packed winter season. With new food and beverage outlets opening each week, the city is going all out with its culinary offerings. Smack in the heart of Dubai’s buzzing DIFC district, there’s a new dining sensation that’s making waves. Uchi – a swanky Japanese-inspired bar and restaurant has just flung open its doors, promising culinary artistry and a touch of elegance that’s sure to captivate your senses.

Uchi isn’t just a restaurant. Carole Moawad, the founder, turned her childhood dream into reality, envisioning Uchi as a place where everyday moments transform into joyous celebrations. Her goal? To create a haven where visitors aren’t merely guests but architects of their own extraordinary dining experiences.

Uchi’s menu is a testament to innovation and creativity. Dishes like the Truffle Lobster and Uni Soba with Konbu Dashi provide a fusion of Japanese tradition and modern artistry. Designed by head chef, Ciprian Porumbacean, the menu spans Freemantle Octopus Millefeuille, King Crab with pea and asparagus ditaloni, Wagyu Tartar and a selection of maki rolls. Elsewhere, the Pina Colada dessert, featuring pineapple panna cotta and passion fruit gel, is a memorable tropical-tinged finale. Complementing the culinary delights are Uchi’s sophisticated beverages like Yamazaki, Chita, and Miyagikyo, created in collaboration with bar consultant Nana Sechere.
