“It’s eye-wateringly expensive, but the clientele are so rich that it doesn’t matter!” at this deluxe Belgravia outpost of the 20-year-old, Moscow-based Sumosan empire, which shifted a couple of years ago from Mayfair to the stretch of Sloane Street south of Harvey Nicks, seemingly patronised solely by ‘citizens of nowhere’. Foodwise, an innovative menu of Italian and Japanese dishes are presented side-by-side (prepared by a chef dedicated to each cuisine): “lovely… I wasn’t paying…”

“When I heard the restaurant was a fusion of Japanese and Italian, I was sceptical!” – a perhaps natural reaction to this Belgravia outpost of the 20-year-old, Moscow-based, luxury dining empire. Originally located in Mayfair – where the style was purely Japanese-fusion – when it relocated to Sloane Street a couple of years ago, it both acquired the ‘Twiga’ suffix to its name, and also an Italian menu (presented side-by-side). Like its predecessors on this tricky site (Monte’s, Pengelley), this glossy operation inspires little feedback, as a result of a location whose primary passing trade is designer-clad Eurotrash; and, predictably, it is sometimes dismissed as “overpriced” and mediocre all round; but some reporters do declare themselves “really surprised and pleased with the culinary results”. Top Tip: dip your toe in the water with a visit to its glam second-floor cocktail bar.

Summary

Re-located from Mayfair to the Sloane Street site old-timers will recall as Monte’s and Pengelley (long RIP), this fusion Japanese – part of a Russian-owned chain also operating in Moscow, Monte Carlo and Dubai – now serves Italian cuisine alongside its hallmark sushi, black cod and other Nobu-esque fare. It was formerly quite well-known, but since it reopened here in November 2016, it seems to have fallen into the international, Gucci-clad black hole that is central Belgravia, attracting zero survey feedback and few press reviews.
