Zuma history

Rainer Becker set up Zuma in London in 2002, after being captivated by Japan during his six-year tenure as executive chef of the Park Hyatt. Nowadays, Zuma is found across the globe, from New York to Dubai, Rome to Miami and Hong Kong and even Qatar through its new temporary establishment.

Zuma was born as a result of my experiences in Tokyo. Great Japanese food demands the freshest produce and uses cutting techniques that make a world of difference to the outcome of a dish. It is this meticulous attention to detail that gives Japanese food a gourmet edge; the more I learned about the cuisine — the more I fell in love with it.”

The restaurant will close in March 2023 so hurry up and visit with your friends and family.
