After testing the waters in London, Istanbul and Hong Kong, chef Rainer Becker opened the doors to his fourth location of Zuma restaurants in Dubai International Financial Centre, in 2008. Since then, Zuma has been expanding its portfolio of restaurants by adding locations in Bangkok, Miami, New York, Las Vegas, Rome and Abu Dhabi.
Zuma Restaurant follows the Japanese izakaya (compared to Irish pub or early American saloon dining by many) way of informal dining and the food is served to share. Zuma’s main dining area is divided into two levels connected with an elegant staircase and a private elevator. You can go for the buffet option, especially during branch hours, or dine a la carte. There is a private dining area that can accommodate parties of up to 20 people. Their wine and sake cellar carries a wide variety of fine wines, champagne and sake.
