A showcase of authentic Uzbek culture and cuisine opens at The Pointe



ZOR opens with a sensational live musical performance by Uzbek Superstar Sevara Nazarkhan.

ZOR, the latest dining destination to open at The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah celebrates its grand opening weekend on Thursday, 17 December and Friday 18 December with a live performance by Uzbek superstar Sevara Nazarkhan. A singer, songwriter and musician, Sevara has achieved worldwide fame through her unique musical style which incorporates Uzbek folk and contemporary music. 

ZOR has been designed with a bold vision to showcase the best of authentic Uzbek culture and cuisine to the Middle East. The concept offers guests a first-hand glimpse into the true spirit of Uzbekistan, via an immersive culinary journey. Seen as a melting pot of flavours and spices and with a rich and unique history, Uzbekistan’s heritage is one that is embedded with numerous influences from neighbouring nations. As a result, many Uzbek recipes have centuries-old histories and are prepared with various rituals that elevate the dining experience to all-new heights. 

The carefully curated menu at ZOR combines traditional Uzbek recipes with modern technology and the best of ingredients sourced directly from multiple provinces within Uzbekistan. Highlights from the flavourful menu include Chuchvara and Shurpa; classic Uzbek beef and lamb soups cooked with an array of vegetables and served with a side of sour cream and lamb chops. A must-try is ZOR’s Osh, a much-loved dish of tender braised lamb, garlic and burned onions, cooked with Lazar rice and served with an achichuk salad. ZOR also offers guests an array of succulent meat skewers, served straight from the grill including Shashlik, Koftas and lamb chops.

Set over two expansive floors and with an outside terrace overlooking the record-breaking Palm Fountains, ZOR offers a sincere commitment to modern hospitality and an inherent belief that a guest’s journey begins the moment they enter through the doors.
