The décor is bananas. Who needs clean lines and minimalism when you’ve got neon signs, full-size indoor cherry blossoms, painted oil drum tables, umbrellas and bird cages hanging from the ceilings, old TV sets and a day-glo tuk tuk?
They don’t take themselves too seriously. Mr Miyagi’s tongue-in-cheek, pun-tastic menu belies a decent selection of pan-Asian street food favourites, from pho to wok stir-fries. Mixed drinks are served in plastic bags, or in actual buckets, full moon party-style.
Brunch is loud and proud. The five-course menu and free-flowing drinks are served alongside a lively line up of live music, courtesy of resident karaoke singers Reggie and Twinkle, star appearances by the Mini Miyagi hosts, games and instant prizes, and a wash-on, wash-off fish bowl station.
The Hello Kitty ladies night is a great value deal. For Dhs99, you’ll get a choice of three house drinks and three courses from the menu every Tuesday evening. All about equal opportunities, the Lady’s & Boy’s Nights on Wednesdays and Saturdays offer meal and bar deals for him and her.
