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.
