Zuma is located in the Dubai International Financial Centre at the heart of the city and in the vicinity of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

The design was created by Tokyo based Noriyoshi Muramatsu of Studio Glitt, and it showcases hand carved granite counters, salvaged rusted-steel walls and a spectacular bamboo sculpture, created from 450 wires and 350 bamboos, which transcends the central void.

This restaurant offers delicious but prompt service for those on the go. A wide range of fresh pastas and other products are prepared before your eyes at the Tavola Fredda and Tavola Calda – cold and hot counters. In 2013, Armani/Peck Restaurant was nominated for Best Business Lunch.
This restaurant offers you probably the most expensive business lunch in Dubai. However, it also offers you the best views in town, at 123 floors up the world’s tallest building.

So, if you have a lot riding on your business meeting, display your priorities and invest in this option.

The small two-course lunch set menu features Italian classics such as caprese salad and pasta as well as grilled meat dishes.
