If Japanese food is your thing then this is as good as it gets in London,it just gets my vote over Nobu because it's a bit more of a occasion when you dine in Zuma.They share dishes like black cod which are old favourites but the food from the grill is really well cooked and adds another level of... read more

By far THE best mojito I have ever had, not to mention the food, the most amazing food ever! Can't fault the staff either. Tempura corn kernel was a nice surprise, not what you would expect. Will definitly go back!

We had been to Roka several times and thought it was good, but Zuma is on another level entirely. Our table wasn't quite ready so we sat in the bar for awhile and had a couple of drinks, then were led to the table. Overall we had many different things on the menu including sashimi, nigiri, maki combinations, and rolls.... More

Went to Zuma last night under the pre-condition that the table had to be returned at 8pm for a 6pm booking. No problem. Arrived there on a few minutes after the rest of our party. The reception team don't seem to care that you're a customer and put across a very arrogant vibe. We spotted our guests and made our... More

Once again, I visited Zuma for its excellence in best Japanese food globally known for! We had the soft shell crap, tuna sashimi platter, spicy squid and blackened cod! As always never disappointed, the restaurant was busy, the service was excellent! I must agree though with some of the reviewers, Dubai Zuma is the best for atmosphere and interior looks... More

Our concierge could not get us reservations, however, we were able to secure a table at the sushi bar. Service was good, food was delish and portions were small ( as expected). Would definitely go back if in town.

Very cool and hip with good food however just too overcrowded. Certainly not if you are looking to relax and chat as you can barely hear yourself The decor is very modern and everyone looks beautiful in this place. I would rate the food as excellent. Great for people watching

Whenever we go to London, my husband insists in eating at Zuma. It is his favourite restaurant in town. As it can be quite difficult to secure a table, we discovered the easier option of having lunch there. Usually even by just showing up. The food is just excellent, outstanding, probably the best Japanese restaurant outside Japan. We are trying... More

Ate here for a birthday lunch on a day spent in London. The whole experience was one of quality. The decor, the menu the cocktails, what's not to like!? All very very good. Not cheap, but why should it be? Great dishes on the menu, an open kitchen to catch the buzz of service and some stunningly clever dishes....corn tempura... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

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.
