Oni at Shangri-La Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai has rebranded as Oni Lounge & Restaurant with a fresh look following a change of ownership.
Head chef Emil Helmy will be providing a range of authentic Japanese street flavours and dishes served in traditional izakaya sharing style plates.
There will be Japanese favourites such as gyoyza, robata, and sushi using fresh ingredients from Japan’s north island of Hokkaido.
The luxurious décor and DJ booth give of the ambience of a high-class lounge and there is seating for over 75 guests.
Helmy said: “We are extremely excited to launch Oni here in Dubai and open our doors to the public. Oni is more than just a restaurant but a social dining experience focusing on theatrics and providing guests with a full 360 multisensory experience from the moment they walk in the door. With live cooking stations, a sake bar and a DJ booth with a rotating residency we are confident that Oni will be unlike anything else on the market and will soon become the go-to place for the who’s-who of Dubai.”
