Delicious

You have to reserve maybe a week a head for this restaurant, it's always packed with people and it's delicious! Friendly staff. The only thing I might say about it that it's a bit greasy for my taste.

My friends had spoken often of the amazing food at Zuma and so it was with interest that we dined there on a Thursday evening. We sat in the lounge area and received attentive service in relaxed surroundings. The battered shrimp and the sliced yellowtail appetizers were highlights. The soft shell crab was also great. We then had the mixed... More

It's an overrated for a city that lacks vintage restaurants and the dishes were not up to my expectations specially the baby chiken which was very salty.

Visited the restaurant with a couple of friends for lunch. The restaurant is lovely laid out on two levels. The cocktails are unique with a Japanese touch but are uniquely pricey as well :-) The food - we went for the set lunch course and ordered some additional side dishes as well - like the spinach sesame and the sea...

I needed to create one account in Tripadvisor to explain my experience I had at the ZUMA in Dubai two weeks ago. My boyfriend read that the restaurant Zuma in Dubai should be one of the best restaurant in the city. Therefore we wanted to make a reservation for the next day. Unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked. For us... More

This Japanese fusion restaurant has some of the classiest interiors that i have seen in a long long time. The servers ability to explain the menu in detail impressed me. We ordered 6 pieces of nigiri, chicken wings and the zuma salad. The food tasted super fresh and spoke volumes about the ingredients used. The nigiri was especially delectable. Fabulous... More

Fabulous decor and amazing cocktails but as you would expect in Dubai really expensive but still worth the experience! We didn't dine there just a couple of pieces of sushi for a snack which was nice but I think in New Zealand we are spoilt with our food. Staff from all over the world were amazing! As the night goes... More

I have been here 2 times and the food and the service is excellent! It is a bit pricy tho. Also the bar has a great ambience.
