Mikado Café in the Al Hana Centre in Al Khalidiyah, Abu Dhabi may be small and tucked in among hundreds of other dining choices, but it’s certainly worth a visit. In fact, the Japanese restaurant is kicking off a new promotion called Sushi Mondays, giving us yet another reason to stop in and try it out.

World-renowned Japanese chef Fabio Nakazato is the executive chef at Mikado Café. Although he was born in Brazil, Nakazato is known as a global authority on Japanese cuisine, training in some of the world’s most fabulous Japanese restaurants, including the Nobu restaurants.

Every Monday night, diners can pay AED80 and then choose from a wide variety of different types of sushi rolls, including several kinds you won’t find in many places. Mikado Café offers uramaki, sashimi, and nigiri. The Japanese restaurant also includes vegetarian uramaki with avocado, asparagus, spring onions, and cucumber. There’s also a ceviche uramaki, in addition to tuna, salmon, and seabass nigiri and sashimi rolls. Mikado uses only the freshest fish for its sushi, which is crafted carefully at the live sushi bar.

If sushi isn’t your thing but you love traditional Japanese cuisine, then Mikado Café also has plenty of choices for you. The Japanese restaurant fuses Western and European flavors with traditional Japanese cuisine. Mikado also offers some exquisite desserts, baked goods, and even homemade ice cream. There’s even a full breakfast menu with a fresh twist on morning staples like waffles and pancakes plus more creative options like peanut butter and marshmallow toast. And no Japanese restaurant would be complete without teriyaki, tempura, and other traditional Japanese dishes.

Mikado Café’s regular hours are 8 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week.
