Tucked away in a quieter corner of The Dubai Mall, Manga Sushi is the perfect place for all those who love Japanese food, manga and anime. The manga-themed interiors, waiting staff and the menu with manga-inspired names, makes the restaurant an attractive option for foodies and comic lovers.
They have delicious seaweed salad, presented in a martini glass and a super lobster nest with crispy prawns and lobsters, paired with the chilli sauce. The crab salad stands out with spicy Japanese mayo served in a crispy wanton bowl of crabstick and cucumbers.
Specialties include the sizzling mushroom bops, which comes with fresh oysters and shitake mushrooms, cooked with rice in a hot pot. Apart from the regular sushi varieties, the restaurant offers a sushi with an Arabian twist such Aladdin roll, which is served with shrimp tempura and sweet spicy mayo, topped by crushed pistachio.
The green apple wasabi sorbet in the dessert section is an interesting dish as the pungency of wasabi against the sweetness of green apple is a classic contrast that works wonders. The cotton candy milk shake is delicious with a fluffy texture and will evoke nostalgia. It is topped with an actual mini cotton candy.
