For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

“Exquisite” dishes “bursting with flavour” – be they “sumptuous sushi and sashimi” or “wonderful robata-yaki style BBQ” – are the hallmark of these “cool and vibrant” Japanese-fusion operations. The Charlotte Street original is still the best: “sit at the bar made of slabs of tree trunk and watch the chefs’ delicate preparations!”

Summary

“Stunning” sushi and “exquisite robatayaki” again win acclaim for this venerated and recently-expanded Japanese-fusion group (whose Charlotte Street original is the best of the bunch). Enthusiasm dipped a little this year, however, with gripes that the newer siblings in particular seem more “noisy” and “corporate”.

Summary

“Forget Nobu – this is much better!”; “Zuma’s little sisters” offer “light-hearted and creative” Japanese-fusion dishes that “explode on the palate”, and “terrific” cocktails too; the Charlotte Street original is the best, with the new Mayfair branch “not as convincing”; late-2014 sees a large new Aldwych branch.

Summary

“Extraordinary” Japanse-fusion dishes (“top-class” robata and “delectable” sushi) put the W1 original of this “slick” Asian duo ahead even of its famous sibling Zuma; does it need a revamp, though? – it has seemed a tad “impersonal” of late.

"The tasting Menu is a must - however vegetarians beware of the tempura as on detailed questioning and closer inspection, I was reliably informed that the veg option is cooked in the same oil and the non-veg option...Yikes!"
