Concierge.com's insider take:
Despite competition from Okku and the Dubai branch of Nobu, Zuma, the London-founded sushi house, still pulls in a clientele of Emirati sheiks (including Dubai's ruler), investment bankers, and fashionistas whose outfits are as ostentatious as the decor is minimalist. The main ticket is the combination of crowd and consistently good food, including miso-marinated black cod wrapped in hoba leaf, sea bass sashimi with shaved truffles, and a dessert of green tea, banana, and mango cake. Walk off your meal by browsing the adjacent art galleries.—Susan Hack
