Food was not bad. It's not the best sushi or best Japanese food you can try in Dubai, but the service was great. The wait staff knows what they are doing and what they're talking about. Kudos to that! Will I come back? Sure! but I'm not crazy about this place, No.

I was so impressed with Zuma. We had the Daikoku set menu which is the chefs selection of signature dishes. This took away the stress of ordering and we got to try a huge variety of dishes. I would highly recommend any of the seafood dishes the sirloin steak was also excellent but the chicken dishes were not my favorite.... More

I went to Zuma with a few friends after we had dinner somewhere else just to have a drink at the lounge/bar. The place was super crowded but we still had a very good time. The wide and beautiful open bar lets you see the bartenders thoroughly making cocktails. There is a very large variety of Japanese whiskeys, in addition... More

do not expect real japanese food, for you are going to get only fusion cuisine of just decent quality. Atmosphere is "loungy" with a chit-chat bar on the upper floor, very international in style and personnel. expensive but worth the fun!

Ditto to most of the other reviewers . From Spicy Crab Miso , to great sashimi to desserts to die for . Valet park downstairs ,lift straight into Zuma ; Bar , Lounge or restaurant . All so easy and then great service to complement the food . It's a place you will want to go back to again .

I went to Zuma on several occasions in the last few months, I like the atmosphere of the bar in the evenings, it has a lovely and charming buzz and a very good DJ. It's good place to socialize, but go somewhere else if you are looking for a party. Cocktails are nice and menu has a large variety of... More

Simply sublime, the majority of other reviewrs have it spot on. Particularly loved the duck salad for starter, the miso cod was utterly delicious.

While the food was not at all disappointing, the extremely loud thumping of the upstairs lounge music was very distracting. The tables are so lose together that ii is difficult to have a truly private conversation. The service is very fast - almost gave me the impression they wanted us to eat and leave in order to turn the table... More
