“In one word - wonderful”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Had lunch a Zuma and loved it. The food, the saké and wines were excellent. Great tastes, great presentation. What more can one say. The service is efficient and slightly stand-offish, but not snooty. They just seem to be too busy to connect with the guests, but that was ok. The interior is so so, nothing great, but that too is ok. It's all about the food. I highly recommend the tasting menu. And I thought the prices were quite reasonable for what you get. After 4 hours we left, sated and very happy! Will be back.

“Absolutely Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

As many reviews indicate, Zuma in Knightsbridge London is fabulous! Very hard to get into so reservations are highly recommended, well in advance!

Some reviewers have indicated that staff at Zuma are rude or "snooty" - we did not experience this at all on the night we visited, all the staff were very polite, friendly and helpful, and it was an extremely busy night as well. It is only the woman taking the reservations by phone who is very rude and unhelpful, she almost put us off going to the restaurant.

The menu is extensive, some of our favourites include the spicy beef tenderloin with seseme, red chilli & sweet soy, and the black cod, both dishes are excellent. We had various types of nigiri and maki, with spicy yellowtail and spicy tune rolls being some of our favourites. Excellent wine selection.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere throughout and it was packed the night we visited with many people waiting at the bar for a table. We highly recommend the restaurant and definitely plan to visit everytime we travel through London (if we can get a reservation!).

Thank you to all the staff in the Zuma restaurant!

“Stood up to expectations”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Absolutely delicious if you can afford to spend a substantial amount! Dark and celebrity filled which adds a certain excitement to any dinner. Would highly recommend, went for a friends birthday and everything was wonderful!
