To celebrate the festive season, Bangkok-based contemporary Japanese restaurant Zuma has set up a beachfront pop-up shop at Anantara Layan in Phuket until February 15.

The first pop-up in 2016 received so much positive feedback so that it is now an annual event, with more fun-loving foodies converging on this holiday treat each year.

Delights for this festive season include spicy beef tenderloin with sesame and sweet soy sauce, thin-sliced seabass with yuzu truffle oil and salmon roe, and miso-marinated black cod wrapped in hoba leaf. Whether from the main kitchen, grill, or sushi counter, guests can enjoy these modern takes on traditional Japanese flavours while DJs spin mellow tunes in a breezy beachfront atmosphere.

With 11 locations in major culinary capitals such as New York, London, and Hong Kong, Zuma elevates izakaya dining with the finest ingredients. Izakaya is an informal dining style, in which formal courses are replaced with small dishes that can be shared. This creates a casual, fun experience where diners can taste multiple dishes, savouring favourites and discovering new delights.

In Bangkok, Zuma is located at St Regis on Ratchadamri Road and is said to be a match for its sister restaurants in London, New York, Rome and Dubai.
