We arrived at 7pm, the restaurant was empty, it filled up gradually. I would give the atmosphere a 2 star. The staff were great, friendly, polite and explained each dish, however after a few tables filled up service slowed down considerably, 3 star. The food was acceptable, some of the dishes were great, some were overpowered by the sauces, 3 star. The mixed drinks were below average in taste, 3 star.
I visited The Hanami, located in Andaz by Hyatt in Palm Jumeirah. I had a wonderful experience with an amazing view, atmosphere and the great ambience. You can have a cozy night with some wonderful drinks ( I chose non-alcoholic). The outdoor seating is really amazing, you cannot get over the vibes there. Loved it.
