The menu is comprehensive and alluring. Dishes are authentic but not traditional with bold, intense flavours and an emphasis on simple presentation acquired through quality ingredients. There is no set protocol on ordering from the menu; izakaya style means that dishes are designed to be shared at the table or enjoyed individually

Best Japanese Asian Fusion. Fourth time here. Can't get enough. We had the menu. Everything was amazing. From the sushi to the pork belly, from the fish to the steak... Wine list is amazing. The desert...OMG. Service is always amazing.

Almost the same as in London, better than in Dubai. ZUMA standards, all good. Very pricey, though champagne price was ok. Many thanks to Adam for hospitality and to J (or Jay, I’m sorry) for the excellent service.
