ONI Dubai, Japanese Lounge & Restaurant Dining Concept

ONI Dubai, Japanese Lounge & Restaurant, a lively and enticing social dining concept delivering authentic Japanese cuisine, finally opens its doors in Dubai’s luxurious Shangri-La Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Located on the 2nd floor of the hotel, ONI is a culinary concept showcasing Japanese street flavours and dishes served in traditional ‘Izakaya’ sharing style plates. Using fresh ingredients sourced from Japan’s north Island of Hokkaido, ONI’s menu features much-loved favourites such as robata, sushi, gyoza and ramen cooked at live cooking stations for multi-sensory dining experience.

Menu highlights include wagyu beef tataki, avocado on crispy rice, tuna pizza, seafood okonomiyaki, and semi-dried Japanese rockfish ‘kichiji shioyaki’ to name a few.

ONI Dubai recalls the glamour and intrigue of Japanese culinary culture, combining street Japanese flavours using traditional techniques, world-class mixology and dramatic design. With luxurious décor drawing inspiration from the ancient Japanese tradition of ‘golden repair’ or ‘Kintsugi’, ONI exudes an ambience that is sultry, bold yet high-energy.


The latest addition to the Dubai social circuit, it is the hotspot for movers and shakers and cultural catalysts. With a sake bar, DJ booth, private lounge and shared seating for over 75 guests, ONI Dubai is a place that is alive and buzzing with palpable energy. Expect an atmosphere that is enticing and intriguing guaranteed to have you coming back for more.


We are extremely excited to launch ONI here in Dubai and open our doors to the public. ONI Dubai 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 whos-who of Dubai, says Head Chef, Emil Helmy of ONI.
