Designed to Amaze

The aesthetics in Zama are a testament to meticulous planning and creative vision. Designed by Tucker Sadler Architects, a local firm known for its contributions to iconic San Diego landmarks such as Portside Pier at the Embarcadero and the San Diego Central Library, Zama’s setting draws inspiration from the Amazonian jungle.

Unlike any of the restaurants in Gaslamp Quarter, you will step inside and find yourself enveloped in tropical rainforest vibes surrounded by lush green and natural wood. It’s an environment that’s not just a restaurant; it’s an immersive journey into the heart of the Amazon, where every corner tells a story of the wild.

At the heart of Zama’s allure is its diverse and eclectic menu. With a sushi bar presided over by the talented Chef Tayuka Kudo, formerly of Nobu and Lumi downtown, you can expect a delightful fusion of flavors. Mexican aguachile and Peruvian tiradito share the stage with dishes from Latin America, creating a symphony of tastes that will satisfy your cravings.
