“Beautiful meal in a cool place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The evening started a bit slow. Too many staff members not knowing what to do. Once we all got our drinks things got better. The tasting menu was spectacular! Great place to celebrate a special meal! We'll be back!

“My favorite restaurant in Dubai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Just name it: interior, music, food, beverages.. Everything is just perfect!
If you are going for business lunch, romantic dinner or a party night you can find all of that in here (I dont suggest all tree in the same day, but its not forbidden to try:)
For business lunch, there is a great set menu available during the week and if you fancy friday brunch, you could not find better place then this (especially if you fancy healthy, law fat food)
On Thursday and Friday night you can try some of the cocktails at the bar and good selection of wines ( I dont drink, so you will have to go and explore )
I would certainly recommend Black Cod and avocado salad, salmon sashimi and exotic fruit platter for dessert.
If there is a bigger group, then try the rice with wild mushrooms for 4 person and just add to the above selection some beef dish (you cannot make a mistake on this one, so feel free to choose any)
Now, make a booking (cause you HAVE to book the table in advance) and ENJOY...

“Complete destruction of the word "Service"”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

I have been working in the DIFC for 6 years and ZUMA is a clear case of success going to the head. The staff are rude and arrogant while the managers act like the stars of a blockbuster movie . You can be asked to leave an "unreserved" standing table at 2 minutes notice even though you are still waiting for your food order if a "preferred" customer arrives. "Accidentally” adding 25-30% to your bill for items you didn't order is a common problem. If anyone is planning to go for a drinks/dinner with family it is advised to perform a sanity check on ambience in advance as the clientele is certainly "questionable" later in the evening. DIFC definitely needs a better Japanese restaurant to compensate for ZUMA.
