Search for excellent sushi (besides Zuma) has ended! I can see why 99 Sushi won the best newcomer award on TimeOut! Despite the intense competition on Al Maryah, this little sushi restaurant stands out. Nestled inside the Four Seasons, 99 Sushi has a smaller seating area than most other restaurants and has a cute outdoor patio overlooking the water which is where we sat down.
Here’s what we had - - Toro Tuna and Shoestring chips maki - Soft shell crab roll - Matsuri roll - Toro Tuna Nigiri sushi - Grilled Foie Gras nigiri sushi
The chef’s artistry was on display with the little cuts on the Toro nigiri creating the perfect melt in your mouth experience. Every dish was excellent except the soft shell crab roll. Didn’t get the sweetness of the crab. Bite was a bit bitter and lacked flavor. The dish of the night for us was the grilled foie gras nigiri. The subtle grill, tare sauce and the raspberry on top created an absolutely bomb! We just HAD to re-order this dish...Not your typical dish at a sushi restaurant but anyone who likes foie gras the dish is not to be missed!!
99 Sushi - happy to have you join the AD restaurant scene!
