JEDDAH: Nozomi brings exciting Japanese cuisine to Saudi Arabia along with some unique twists to make for a memorable dining experience.
The food is authentic and delicious, reflected in Nozomi being named “best Japanese restaurant” by Food and Travel Magazine.
The restaurant creates the vibes of authenticity through its plush interior design, decorated to reflect Japanese culture.
The presentation of dishes makes them appear less like food and more like works of art, such as mystical-looking steaming sushi or flamboyant desserts.
Located in the Al-Rawdah district of Jeddah, one of Nozomi’s most popular desserts is an edible ball, dropped by the chef onto the diner’s table, which is filled with ice-cream and other delicious toppings.

Where We Are Going Today: JD Lounge

  • t is highly recommended for anyone who is in Jeddah, especially if they feel like a fancy dinner

JD Lounge is a relaxing restaurant and cafe that offers a distinctive, sophisticated ambiance. What first drew me to it, however, is its fun reading corner, as I often struggle to find spots where I can read in peace without the distracting hum of other people’s conversations.
The venue is simple but elegant, with a French-style interior that is both modern and classy, with obvious attention to detail and a lovely music selection. It is highly recommended for anyone who is in Jeddah, especially if they feel like a fancy dinner that will delight the palate and leave you feeling fully satisfied, as it serves generous portions of delicious food.
I was particularly delighted to discover JD Lounge serves rose lattes as I have been wanting to try one for a long time. It was worth the wait. The beautifully arranged pink concoction was served topped with edible rose petals and rose powder. The aesthetic of the drink and the rich, mixed aroma of coffee and rose took my breath away before I had tasted a drop — and then when I had my first sip, it was better than I had dreamed, with the rose flavor sweet but not overwhelming.
JD Lounge can be found in northern Obhur, across from King Abdullah Medical City.
