It's a Japanese restaurant and I would rate it as average. Of all the dishes the fried rice is the best - I tried the vegetarian one and you can have it on it's own. The sushi is yum too and so is the yellow...More

Great ambience but top top money for an average meal. A stones throw from novikov and nobu which both offer better food..

Novikov, Nobu and Zuma all fade in view of the sushi you have in Sumosan. Quite pricey but the food is worth it. Black cod, etc. are all same quality as the others, but if you are a sushi fan, this restaurant will do it...More

Went their with friends pre reservations needed, we love the atmosphere, friendly staff and the rapid service. Of all of our order salad and desert were most delicious. Will visit again in my next trip to London.

I first experienced Sumosans delicious menu at a corporate event so I was excited to experience the real thing at the Mayfair restaurant. We had no reservation and popped in on the off chance for dinner. The service was second to none. Friendly hostesses who...More

We actually ate here last year but didn't remember until we got to the restaurant. It's decent but not worth the price they charge in my opinion. The dining room is dark to try to create an intimate setting but tables are rather close together...More

We go to Sumosan every week! You can never get enough and you always want to go back! The most delicious sashimi and sushi rolls and the best chocolate desert! Must try!

The food was okay even though totally overpriced especially the starters. The cod was good, otherwise not the authentic fine Japanese I expected from all the jazz I got when booking. Staff friendly but not at the level of professionalism of a fine dining restaurant....More

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw

Struggling to choose between Italian and Japanese? Well, at this restaurant, cocktail bar and late-night lounge, you don't have to. After 14 years on Albemarle Street, Sumosan's relocation to Knightsbridge brings with it a menu that splits itself right between both, as well as a new name (twiga is Swahili for 'giraffe'). Beyond the monochrome entrance hall lies a basement lounge, a first-floor restaurant and the bar above that, with room for 200 diners altogether. This newcomer retains the same dizzying levels of interior swank as Mayfair. It's a concoction of black, bronze, alabaster and dark wood, overseen by Italian design studio Michele Bönan. The huge site has been undertaken in partnership with Flavio Briatore (the former manager of the Benetton Formula 1 team) and there's room for 300 guests over two floors. Our advice? Don't miss the miso aubergine and spicy king crab dishes. The famously sublime sushi is now joined by the likes of lobster paccheri pasta, in a fresh tomato sauce. Yes, there's a Limoncello Wasabi cocktail on the list, but this is cuisine for the indecisive, not the fusion fan.
