Have the lobster...

“Amazing”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is, without doubt, the best restaurant I have ever been to, from the faultless service to the sublime food. I cannot recommend enough Zuma!

“One of the best in London”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Had a fab meal in the lounge area of Zuma on a busy Saturday night. Bar/restaurant areas were very noisy and buzzy.

We were a table of 4 that shared 4 small plates, 2 maki roll plates, 3 main courses, rice, 2 desserts, 2 bottles of wine and water and 3 or 4 beers. Came to £85 per head with the service charge. All the dishes were well worth this price, we didn't have a single bad dish.

Would recommend to anyone that loves sushi/japanese cuisine.

“Great sushi - better than Nobu”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We lived in Kensington for 3 years and would always visit Knightsbridge and go to Zuma. It's a bit pricey but fantastic food and great atmosphere. We have also been to Nobu and like Zuma so much better.

“Maybe a unavailable "good" would have been a good rating...”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Located in a chic Knightsbridge location Zuma is certainly an "in" place to go in London. Lots a sleek people in a sleek interior, cool cocktails and good looking wait staff make for a potent fashionable mix. However, we decided to have dinner as well...and that was not such a good experience as we thought it would be. The menu is predominantly Japanese and the five of us had samples of pretty much everything on it and expected, certainly for the money they charge to eat a la Waku Ghin in Singapore, Aida in Paris or Tetsuya's in Sydney...
Unfortunately the dishes were all quite tasteless and a little on the greasy side and didn't rate above a mediocre Japanese restaurant, if at all.
The beef tartar and the ribeye steak were the only exceptions.
