Zuma will be opening a pop-up for a second season in Sala Layan. The award-winning contemporary Japanese restaurant was created and co-founded by Rainer Becker and will be opening at a beachfront restaurant that forms a part of Anantara Layan Phuket Resort between the 15th December and the 15th March.
The cuisine delivered to guests at Zuma has been inspired by izakaya, an informal dining style that will make the restaurant feel authentic yet not necessarily traditionally Japanese. The menu created for the pop-up has been designed to be shared. The diners also have the opportunity to try sushi counter as well as food served from the kitchen and grill.
Zuma first opened in London in 2002 and has experienced a great deal of success on a worldwide platform. The restaurant has since the taken the opportunity to expand and open eleven international locations. The restaurant offers a range of signature dishes such as spicy beef tenderloin serves with sesame, sliced yellowtail with green chili and a miso marinated black cod. Alongside the freshest sushi and sashimi, visitors to Zuma can enjoy food from the robata grill.
The pop-up in Sala Layan will be located in between Anantara Layan’s beach and pool areas, and will create a whole new vibe for guests to enjoy during the festive season and afterwards right into the middle of March.
Anantara Layan is located in a secluded bay on the Andaman coastline in the tropical rainforest of the Sirinath National Park. A part of the Anantara luxury hospitality brand, the resort has a wide range of both creative and intimate dining options including dee plee, a hillside restaurant that offers Thai cuisine and tailored ‘Dining by Design’ options available across the resort. The Zuma pop-up will fit in amongst the eclectic dining options at the luxury resort.
