Bursting onto the Doha dining scene by grabbing the Best Newcomer Award at the Time Out Doha Restaurant awards was a statement of intent for this Japanese spot which manages to be smart, intriguing and stylish all at once.

Placing itself firmly in the contemporary Japanese category you should not be surprised to also discover European subtlety. The black cod, the benchmark upon which this type of restaurant is invariably served, is present and comes served with miso and pickled daikon.

Of course you will find a stylish collection of sushi, sashimi, Kobe beef, teriyaki, tempura and robata grill dishes. But, as we’re fond of saying, there is more to the Marsa Malaz Kempinski’s Japanese restaurant than that. An import of the hip London restaurant of the same name it sparkles with chic and is a nightlife destination likely to give you a street creed boost when you’re spotted lounging in the sleek dining room.
