Time Out Says
But it’s not just about the food when it comes to the Japanese juggernaut that is Zuma.
The bar is also worth a visit. Of course, we’d prefer to pair it with a trip to the restaurant, but it’s still a spot to slide into if you’re in the area.
Zuma was set up by German chef Rainer Becker in London in 2002 and it’s gone from strength-to-strength over the years – with outposts now all over the world. This year Zuma Dubai celebrates its tenth anniversary, which for a restaurant in this city is a considerable landmark. And it’s thanks to its consistency that people return time and again. It’s always excellent, and you’re guaranteed a good time.
Unlike some venues, Zuma is relaxed and upbeat, with a buzzing bar area, which gets especially busy post-brunch with buoyant diners looking to carry on the Friday party.
The décor is trendy and chic, with dark woods and latticing, and the bar is well-stocked with a range of grape and mixed drinks. Drinks, as you’d expect, are on the pricey side, however.
For a pre-dinner, post-brunch or after-work drink in DIFC it’s definitely worth dropping by.
