Acclaimed Singaporean chef Reif Othman finally laid down his roots in the centre of Dubai. Kushiyaki – robata grilled or skewered street food – is the name of the game, featuring chicken thighs, Angus beef and crispy avocado, among many more meat and vegetarian options. These only open the feast, and are followed by ramen, gyoza and the signature social media sensation, the Wagyu Katsu Sando, which boosted Othman onto the global stage. Located in the Dar Wasl Mall, the restaurant is laid back, bright and airy, with a sunlit terrace and high stools. For an exclusive dinner, opt for The Experience, where Othman guides diners on a culinary journey at his chef’s table. The flavours are exciting, the theatre intriguing and the spaces limited – so be sure to book tickets well in advance. Reif Kushiyaki’s immediate success has led to its expansion across the region. Look out for the branches in Cairo and Riyadh.
