Anyone who knows anything about the London 'scene' will have heard about Zuma. My partner and I visit London 4 or 5 times a year and had previously had no success in trying to make a reservation, even 2 or 3 days beforehand. So for our visit in April, we booked about 6 weeks in advance, so the waiting made... More

Zuma takes well known dishes such as tofu, sashimi, crispy squid and grilled asparagus to a new tasting experience. The dessert 'boat' was a great triumph, especially with the children. Attentive staff made the... More

Was in London by myself for one night and I was craving some Sashimi so thought I would try Zuma for a change. (Whenever I am in London I usually go to Nobu for my Japanese fix!!)

Cocktails were lovely. The place was packed and our table was not ready on time which was quite annoying. Nice waitress served us and the food was good but expensive.

Too my son here for his 13th birthday. Having lived in Osaka I have experience with Japanese cuisine. We have the tasting menu. Was perfect. Quality is on par with Japan. Cod fish was amazing. Sashimi melted in ones mouth. Ambience wonderful and service team very attentive. Would recommend this dining experience to everyone.

We tried to book a table at least a fortnight in advance without success. Went anyway and sat at the area by the chefs . Food was excellent as usual. Service exceptional and nothing too much trouble

This was my first time at Zuma. Did I like it? Yes, but I was expecting something better. It is a big restaurant that is Always fully booked. Very hard to make a reservation. After many tries I got one table for lunch. Food was OK, but nothing outstanding. Price is expensive.
