Japanese restaurants are definitely having a moment in Dubai, with the recent openings of Mimi Kakushi, Ikigai and Kinoya. Prepare for another to light up the city’s food scene, with the arrival of Koyo, slated to open in July 2021.
The new venue is brought to you by Solutions Leisure, the team behind Asia Asia at Pier 7, two branches of New York steakhouse STK, as well as Lock, Stock & Barrel, Karma Kafe and Baby Q (formerly Q43). That being said, we think we can expect big things from Koyo.
While there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the new Japanese restaurant, we are promised that it will be a “larger-than-life oriental hotspot that offers a whole new way of traditional Japanese cooking and entertainment.”

We know the new location will occupy two floors at the Intercontinental Dubai Marina, which is home to popular spots such as Marina Social (great for a roast dinner) and La Carnita, the cool Mexican restaurant.
Koyo, with both a restaurant and bar, is described as’ opulent ‘and inspired by’ the sophisticated beauty and intrigue of the iconic Japanese geisha, mixed with the unique energy of the nightlife experience Tokyo and kabuki-style arts and entertainment.
This is not all that Leisure Solutions is working on at the moment. The team took over the popular Palm Jumeirah steakhouse, West 14. Right now it still operates like this, but there are big plans to turn into a cool new beach bar, so watch this space.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted when we know more …
