Pro snowboarder turned adrenaline-fueled culinary master, Chef Akira Back brings his modern tastes of Japanese cuisine prepared with a Korean essence to the Middle East for the first time.  His restaurant sits atop W Dubai - The Palm, soaking in panoramic views of the Palm and city.  It is a complete adventure for your soul.

Chef Akira and his team, led by Chef de Cuisine Giovanni Ledon, strive to bring a new dimension to Japanese cuisine and create a memorable experience for the guests by exploring the endless possibilities of combining interesting ingredients and unexpected flavours.  It is where guests can mix + mingle while sharing a plate or two or three.

The energy behind-the-scenes fuel the flavours.  Sushi, a Robata grill, Wagyu beef tenderloin or vegan - all tastes are welcome. Signature dishes include Chef Akira's tuna pizza and AB tacos.

The indoor/outdoor space provides a dramatic backdrop where everyone has a panoramic view in the foreground. The entrance to the restaurant is a vortex that brings you one step closer to heaven. Upon entering, you'll notice the detail in abstract design; including artwork from Chef Akira's mother, cloud like structures on the ceiling, wabi sabi finishings and tiger stripes to honor his zodiac sign.

The rooftop terrace is ideal for pre/post dinner or just for some small bites, with the floating bar as a focal point.  There is also a private dining room for those sharing an intimate occasion or an omasake experience.
