The perfect meal and was so pleased to see that the quality of the food is exactly the same as the London location. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and is a very trendy scene. A must visit in Dubai. Thank You Zuma for a wonderful dining experience, as always.

Top end restaurant placed in Dubai International Financial Centre. Venue is superb; don't forget to book table. Food is excellent and so is the service. At night time it is the gathering place DIFC employees mixed with guests that want part of DIFC vibe and the excellent restaurant experience offered.

Zuma is the place to go to be seen in Dubai. Not exactly the best or most authentic food. We had the steak and black cod both very good main dishes. Food quality is good however, not exactly Japanese. For a Tuesday night the place was packed and table was only for 2 hours which was not enough timw for... More

We went to the restaurant on advice from a friend and were not disappointed. The food, drinks and ambience is fantastic and the bar upstairs from the restaurant is great. No surprise the place was full on an average tuesday evening.

Eat at Zuma at least once a month, having tried almost all of the Japanese inspired restaurants in Dubai, and believe me there are plenty Zuma without fail always is the best. The quality and selection of the food is exceptional. Staff always attentive, even if a little stuffy at times. Good fro after work cocktails too!

One of the best experience I had in a Japanese restaurant. If you are a sushi lover you will love the food. Level of sushi quality is equal to Nobu and cocktails are simply amazing.There was a really fresh, on-the-go, business,fashion feeling . Full goodlooking smart dressed people! Very nice atmosphere for having a cocktail in the bar upstairs before... More

Last week, my colleagues and I decided to have dinner at Zuma. We all had been there before and simply loved it for it is arguably the best sushi restaurant in town. Unfortunately, what started as a lovely evening ended as a not so pleasant experience. At around 9pm, a manager came to tell us we had to move to... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the feedback on your most recent visit to our restaurant last Wednesday evening, however we are obviously very disappointed that this was evidently not your most favourable Zuma experience to date. Our policy of multiple seatings at Zuma can sometimes be the source of confusion and unfortunately on occasions, a little disappointment, when the booking... More

It's probably one of the priciest restaurants in Dubai but it is worth every dollar spent. The atmosphere, the food, the service, the crowd; it all blends together into such a great experience. We have been there twice and had many platters and literally all of them were top notch. Recommended and a must go to.

This is a must-visit place for me. The servers are polite, helpful and super courteous. Choices are intense and the presentation of food, excellent. And to top it all, the quality of food and flavours, a bang for your buck! Relaxed and happening at the same time.
