Harden's survey result
“It takes flak for being too showy”, and “can be a little over-run by glam types”, but “the foundations of this fun Knightsbridge scene are as appealing as ever – fantastic, innovative cuisine, welcoming service and a wonderful, vibrant atmosphere”. The Japanese-fusion dishes deliver “brilliant flavours”: “superb sashimi and black cod (although all the fish is amazing)” to “steak mains to die for”. “It’s been a favourite for over a decade now and still feels fresh.”
“Exceptional” Japanese-fusion cuisine still wins very consistent praise for this svelte, “very buzzy” Knightsbridge haunt, whose appeal – in its fifteenth year – still stacks up well. OK, there’s some “tossing around of black credit cards” by its eurotrashy following, but this can make for “awesome people-watching”, and even though “it’s very expensive, it’s worth it”.
“The big wristwatch brigade” are out in force, especially at the “very cool bar” of this swish haunt, which is “always buzzing with the Knightsbridge set”. Its Japanese-fusion morsels are “truly sensational” too, but service has seemed more “inattentive” of late, and “the bill can leave you feeling flat”.
“It may be the haunt of hedgies and wealthy Euros”, but this “always humming” Japanese-fusion hang-out, near Harrods, is “so goddamn good”! A few critics do feel “it’s way too pricey”, but most reporters are blown away by its “spectacular” fare and “terrific” vibe.
Zuma Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Always a winner, food is delicious, fun place"
"My favourite restaurant in London. Food is always fresh and delicious. Their sauces on salads are always good and tasty. Their Zuma salad is a must, and so is the giant prawn dish for a mains."
