Time Out Dubai’s Restaurant of the Year 2020
  • 2

Time Out Says

If we could sum this culinary A-lister up in one word, it would be consistent. Since opening its Dubai doors in 2008, Zuma has consistently been one of the best restaurants in the city.

Serving up exceptional modern Japanese fare, the effortlessly cool spot has won numerous Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards and it always wows.

Spread over two floors, it’s unpretentious and welcoming.

Take our advice and head down early for an expertly-made drink at the bar to start your night.

You can dine in either the main restaurant area or the upper lounge, the latter of which is slightly more casual and buzzy.

From the dynamite spider roll with softshell crab, chilli mayonnaise and cucumber and tokibo sauce, to the thinly sliced sea bass with yuzu, truffle oil and salmon roe, everything we taste seems to out-trump each other.

The quality of the ingredients shines through and everything that passes our lips is utter perfection. The legendry miso black cod is not to be missed, nor is the molten chocolate cake.

It’s a slick affair and the service – as always – is impressive. The staff are attentive without being intrusive and knowledgeable.

Whether you’re visiting for a special occasion or just a quick bite to eat, dining at Zuma is a culinary experience that everyone needs to try at least once.

It is the best restaurant in Dubai, after all.
