Sheikh Hamdan just visited this cool new Japanese restaurant

Katsuya has just opened at the Hyde Hotel Dubai…

It’s no secret that the Crown Prince of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is a big fan of the city’s food scene. Although he’s well known for popping up in some of the city’s trendiest restaurants, he seems to have stepped it up lately.

The latest restaurant to welcome Sheikh Hamdan is the new Japanese restaurant Katsuya, which recently opened in the cool new urban hotel Hyde Hotel Dubai. The Crown Prince visited on Wednesday, February 9, to enjoy a meal featuring dishes created by head chef Pavel Nigai.

Japanese restaurant Slick Katsuya originated in LA, along with many other locations across the United States, where it is often frequented by celebrities such as Jay Z, Kim Kardashian and Brad Pitt. The original Katsuya Dubai was in Jumeirah Al Naseem, but has now moved to its new location in Business Bay.

Signature dishes include the KatsuyaRoll, a mix of scallop, snow crab, yellowtail, tuna, salmon and avocado, wrapped in soy paper, sushi rice and cucumber served with a side of wasabi ponzu and delicate miso black cod.

Luke James, General Manager of Hyde Hotel Dubai said: “We are delighted to welcome guests through the doors of Katsuya once again in the Middle East and bring the smart-casual concept to a returning audience and a whole new audience. Katsuya has historically changed the face of Japanese cuisine around the world for nearly a decade and we look forward to continuing that legacy.

More recently, Sheikh Hamdan visited SushiSamba and Aura Skypool from Palm Jumeirah with footballing legend, Cristiano Ronaldo. He also visited the new hotel, 25 Hours, and returned to Deep Dive Dubai, the record-breaking attraction which opened in Nad Al Sheba in July.
