Everything was perfect. Each course, the taste, the quantities, the choice, the service, the atmosphere, the wine listing... It's very very inspired japanese food.

Service was a bit cold, and they weren't overly friendly but I think I prefer it that way. Absolutely fantastic food, I was made a personalised birthday dessert with various dishes which was beautiful. This restaurant is expensive but well worth it. My favourite dish is the spicy squid.

The food is lovely and the price is reasonable. Great choice for vegetarians.I would only go again if I was staying in Knightsbridge though, I think sushi samba and nobu are much better just because it was very cramped and I didn't feel the service was as attentive as some of the other high end japanese restaurants in london.

I am a neighbour to this place and used to come and have dinners all the time. I went back this week with 4 friends and was very disappointed by the service which was hectic to say the least and by the food which used to be a lot better. The Robata grilled chicken was cold and was not tasting... More

if you want to bump into chelsea players and personalities okay then here is the place but for us its always about the food and the ambience. I have visited here many times with friends and business colleagues and we sit at a different spot each time as there is the sushi bar, the restaurant, the grill bar or the... More

Visited July 2014. Customer service didn't seem keen to give us a reservation but when we told them 2pm on a weekday was fine, they were extremely sullen about it. This attitude was already very off putting, but we decided to give it a try anyway. Ordered a bunch of dishes, but they were mediocre at best. Not worth the... More

Early evening business supper. Atmosphere was buzzing, service very attentive without feeling rushed. Having been to the sister restaurant, Roka, in Canary Wharf, I would recommend Zuma because of the lack of boring people in suits! Food is the same - it's pricey but absolutely stunning, and you can eat as little or as much as you like - perfect... More

We went here with friends. I highly recommend this restaurant. The short stay we have experienced was wonderful. This place was amazing, gorgeous and we had a good time. We asked cocktails, some drinks and had a good time. We will definitely come here again. The restaurant is well located and good ambience, well done. Overall experience is excellent. It... More

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
