Zuma Dubai, located in the heart of the international financial district offers a stylish, contemporary Japanese experience. Adopting the Japanese Izakaya style of dining, food is delivered to the table to share, with a steady stream to create an informal eating experience, not dissimilar to that of home. It has been hugely popular and rumour has it that it is one of Sheikh Mohammad’s favourite spots.
The style of dining as well as the quality of the food has already made a big impression on foodies in and around Dubai, as has the futuristic design, courtesy of Tokyo based Noriyoshi Muramatsu of Studio Glitt who took influence from six elements – fire, earth, water, air wood and iron – to create a harmonious ambiance. The hand carved granite counters in the restaurant maintain the elemental feel and the central piece – a bamboo sculpture made up of 450 wires and 350 bamboo sticks – is nothing short of spectacular. The restaurant is made up of the main dining area, the sushi & robata counter and a private dining area and there are also wine and sake cellars. The Zuma bar and Sake Lounge has also established itself as a hub for the Dubai social scene; seductive lighting and talented DJs create the perfect mood as night approaches. As a concept, Zuma offers something truly unique, incorporating a high level of design into its experience and giving the discerning diners and social butterflies of Dubai a stylish destination to enjoy.
Brunch at Zuma takes place Fridays from 12.300pm until 3.30 pm and costs AED345.00. The stylish destination is a popular choice for those that love Japanese cuisine. The meals are delivered in small, elegant portions so different from the hue buffet spreads of other operators, and include sushi, sashimi, a range of Japanese Yakitori, salads, noodles, seafood and meat dishes. They might be small portions, but you will not leave the restaurant hungry. It’s almost impossible to taste everything but it’s great fun to try! The brunch is free for children under 3yrs and a cost of 225dirhams for kids between 4 – 12.
