I was lucky enough to be taken here by a new friend I met through my work. He had said, at a previous meeting we'd had, that this was one of his favourite places to dine. The sturdy looking bouncers at the door were a little scary on arrival - only to look at, they were actually very welcoming. My... More

I am a big fan of Japanese food and have tried several Japanese restaurants in London. Someone recommended this to me so thought of trying it out for my birthday dinner. I must admit its a nice place but having been to Nobu's, it didn't really blow my socks off. Zuma is comparable to Nobu's in terms of food but... More

The first time I ate at this restaurant was when I was 16 and my mom took me here as a celebratory dinner. 11 years later this place still lives up to my amazement at how good it was the first time. They have managed to keep innovating combining traditional (and excellent) Japanese cuisine with a modern touch to remain... More

The whole experience of Zuma is world class. The food is spectacular and the atmosphere in here never disappoints. If you visit one restaurant in London, this is it for me.

I go to Zuma once in a year, with my family or best friends. To me it is one of the best restaurants in London. Japanese food revisited with imagination. Light, tasteful, genuine, with great ingredients. Last time we had superb grilled lamb cutlets and a first rate soft shell crab. Sushi were soft, lukewarm and melting in the mouth.... More

I went to dinner with my friends and I can say that we had a good time. The food was good and the service too but I still feel like it was a little overrated.

Zuma has the best sushi and grilled menu items for a sushi restaurant. Try the roasted lobster as well as any of the sushi. The service is excellent and the bar scene is exciting.

Have been meaning to get back here since and extraordinary lunch 3 years ago. Was it as good as I remembered? Absolutely. It was also far, far more expensive than I recalled. And the uber-glamorous dinner crowd with their cacophonous buzz left me disenchanted. I'd return for lunch … which draws more of a business crowd … but probably not... More

Had a late dinner with an old friend and wasn't disappointed. The food was excellent and the service quick and attentive. The staff made you feel very welcome. I was surprised at how busy it was on a Tuesday night and we had to wait to get a seat as we didn't prior book, but it was well worth the... More

exquisite cuisine and a great selection of wines make for an amazing evening in this quintessential establishment. Pricing definitely not for the faint hearted and booking an absolute must.
