Zuma Dubai: hotspot with delicious Asian food

13 August 2015

For a foodie proof evening Zuma is the place to be in Dubai

Zuma is without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Dubai. It’s also one of the few restaurants that is not located in a hotel. That’s also nice for a change. Make sure you have a reservation at Zuma, because this hotspot in Dubai is always fully booked. They have two seatings, so if you want to enjoy some drinks after dinner, make sure you book the late seating. The dress code for Zuma is a bit more chic and it’s seen and to be seen. So make sure you put on your nicest outfit ;-).



Menu X Zuma Dubai

The menu at Zuma is full with the most delicious Asian dishes. Al dishes are made to share with your friends. And that’s a good thing, because it’s really hard to choose here … everything looks so good! Zuma also has an extensive menu with special Sakes. And these are not so sharp as at a cheap sushi place but soft and very good of flavour with the dishes. In Amsterdam Taiko in the Conservatorium Hotel has a very beautiful Sake menu. They also understand it! At Zuma the soft shell crab, yellowtail and yakitori skewers are my personal recommendations.






Just like the most restaurants in Dubai this hotspot is not cheap. So plan your trip combining luxury spots and restaurants like these with low key places like Leopold of London and Tom & Serg.
