Visited Zuma with friends during a business trip in Oct 2014... We did have a very influential friend with us, so we did get preferential treatment... Valet parking at the click of a finger, straight to the front of the bar queue and the offer of a table without booking... We didn't eat as we had a table booked at... More

This place is incredible, busy, but one of the most happening places I had the good fortune to visit while in London. Reservations are a must. You cannot just walk in, you will get laughed out the door. So I booked my reservations 3 months in advance! You have been warned... The sushi was excellent and the atmosphere was amazing.... More

Ate here on a busy Friday evening. Getting a table at this place is a nightmare as they refuse to have an online booking system - strange when their sister restaurants ROKA does - but still I supposed that they like to "Vet" the clientele first. When you do get through you get to speak with a particularly off receptionist... More

so much buzz and noting to justify it. average, sometimes plain food, bad unwelcoming and unprofessional service. tiny portions. so in the end of the evening you lose your pants and stay hungry. go there only if you'r looking to be seen..

A veritable fest of sights, sounds, colours and flavour! The experience of having food of this quality was a rare chance for me and a truly unforgettable time was had. My partner and I were there for 3 hours and we hardly spoke about anything other than the tantalising deliciousness of the food that was presented to us. Listen to... More

I loved the food at Zuma, This place is first class. you couldn't help but have an amazing time. My only issue was the fact we had our table exactly 2 hours. We were aware of this at the time of booking, but 2 hours flies by. We were moved to the bar as we literally finished the last spoonful... More

I visited Zuma for a special occasion and I must say it's one of the meals I've ever had. I'm a big fan of Japanese food and although not an expert, I enjoy the flavours and freshness of the modern/western version of its cuisine. We first had a lovely cocktail from the long list of sophisticated drinks they have on... More

Had lunch at Zuma today with friends, second time there. Consensus was to choose three dishes each and, pretty much on a whim, I chose Vegetable Maki as one of my three - really enjoyed it, visually pleasing and tasty. We enjoyed a happy lunch with good food and attentive, but unfussy, service.
