Description: 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.

“Nice food but...”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Always watching you.....

Food is good but you have staff that stand and watch from a distance for the whole meal which means you can't settle. Value isn't great BUT.....food is EXCELLENT.

Good chef, poor staff.

“Sad”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

After hearing about sumosan I was curious. The sushi is so-so....very plain and tasteless. Staff was a bit rude. Loud music, very annoying. Prices were insane!! Won't be back

“Best Japanese in London”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Been to Sumosan a couple of times on trips to london both on business and pleasure. Excellent menu, food is absolutely fresh and wholesome. Have turned up without a reservation and they have always accommodated, ok had to wait a the sushi bar and had a couple of beers but a table always became available - the staff are always willing to please

“excellent lunch deal”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

I love going here for lunch the lunch box is unbeatable. Service is good and atmosphere is nice. Totally recommendable for a business lunch. Dinner prices are a bit more out of control though.
