The restaurant opened its doors to the who’s who of the UAE dressed in exclusive Mori Sushi Japanese kigurumi (animal onesies)! Guests were treated to elaborate platters of Mori Sushi’s signature fusion rolls from the delicious Mango Rainbow Roll to the mouth-watering Ura Tekka Maki. Everyone kept themselves cool with thirst quenching snow cones whilst bopping along to the beats of DJ Isaac Levier.


The attendees were entertained by an illusionist trickster and transformed into anime Japanese characters by talented make-up artists.


Mori Sushi welcomed the stylish Zarah Amira founder of Zamira Style as well as Applebum’s one and only Eugenia Polyakova. Other fashionistas to grace the event was the glamourous Deema Al Asadi and the always elegant Farhana Bodi.
