Guests will be able to enjoy the full selection of Zuma’s award-winning, world-class signature dishes, Spicy Beef Tenderloin with Sesame; Black Cod marinated in Miso; and Grilled Seabass with Chilli and Ginger, accompanied by an innovative range of drinks designed perfectly to complement the award-winning cuisine. Throughout the season, a live DJ will enhance the venue's vibrant atmosphere, providing an elegant, lively and immersive experience.

In partnership with one of the biggest companies in hospitality and food services chain in Qatar, Aura Group, the opening of the location on Al Maha Island will further widen the range of dining options available to the teeming tourists and visitors expected in Qatar during and after the much-anticipated FIFA World Cup 2022.

Rainer Becker, Creator and Co-Founder of Zuma, said: “We are extremely excited to be launching our pop-up in Doha to showcase Zuma in Qatar in the lead up to the FIFA World Cup 2022. Al Maha Island will be a hub of activity during this time and the culinary scene will be unrivalled, and we are very proud to be a part of the euphoria.”

“We look forward to welcoming Qatari residents and tourists from across the globe to experience Zuma and enjoy a dynamic dining experience throughout the winter season,” added Becker.

Zuma was first established in London in 2002 by Rainer Becker, who fell in love with Japan after spending 6 years working there as Executive Chef of Park Hyatt. Today, Zuma has locations all over the world, including New York, Dubai, Rome, Miami and Hong Kong as well as the new temporary Qatari offering.
