Zuma's reputation preceded our visit but the experience still exceeded our expectations. Our firends chose the tasting menu which was an amazing introduction to Zuma's delights. 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!!) I arrived without a booking and had no problem getting a spot at the bar watching the chefs in action. The food I... More

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.

On our last day of our 17 day tour of Europe, we were burnt out, our 10 year old daughter was exhausted from following us around Harrod's and we had one last lunch. I remembered that a London couple had mentioned Zuma while we were swimming in the indoor pool at Villa de Este in Lake Como and on a... More

Make sure you book for dinner because you will not get a table as it is very busy. The staff here are very attentive, observant. We had a couple of cocktails and people watched at the bar waiting for our table. There's a log of single women swimming in the crowd looking for £€$¥. Zuma has invested a lot of... More
