The Friday brunch is something of a Dubai institution.

Scroll down for more details on the Zuma brunch.

Dhs385 for house beverages, shaken drinks and bubbly; Dhs285 with soft drinks only.

Time: 12.30pm-4pm. Last order is at 3.45pm.

Food: This is the epitome of a high-end contemporary Japanese buffet. An array of starters are brought to your table as well as lining a buffet and then you select your main from the a la carte (hint: go for the black miso cod).

The set up: The brunch is held in the light-filled main restaurant downstairs – the decor is classy and chic. The resident DJ provides the brunch’s soundtrack, and there’s a fantastic kids’ play room where little ’uns can hide out.

Post-brunch plan: You’re a stone’s throw away from some of Dubai’s finest art galleries, or head to Caramel for an evening drink.
