Not really, it is just that Japanese restaurants are considered a 'rarity' over here and, thus, are generally overpriced. There are cheaper ones but they are not as good. And... since I consider eating at Japanese restaurant, which I do a handful times a year, a treat, I spare no expenses
The only awesome and cheap restaurant I found was Bentoya in Dubai, but that's because it was run by a Japanese guy and was full of Japanese people (and manga!)
