Zuma London

A sophisticated twist of the traditional Japanese izakaya style

To pleasantly spend their second date young couple in love decided to go to Zuma restaurant located in Knightsbridge which offered a sophisticated twist on the traditional Japanese izakaya style of informal dining – Japanese style pub with outstanding traditional cuisine suitable for demanding customers with high expectations.

They were both in a positive humor and expected to have an amazing dinner this evening.

Zuma was fantastic from start to finish. Lady in pink knitted tweed Missoni dress with rose leather clutch by Valentino with passionate gaze and enchanted gentleman in a navy wool blazer by Officine Generale  were greeted by friendly staff and taken to their table while a number of other staff greeted them on their way.

The atmosphere was vibrant and despite the restaurant was totally full, it was still managed to be an intimate and romantic meal.

Reluctantly taking away eyes from each other lovebirds started to choose meals. The menu showcased a variety of dishes from its three kitchens: the main kitchen, the sushi counter, and the robata grill this is why manager ran through this exciting Japanese menu with them, explaining with great detail what each dish was about.

The centerpiece of an open kitchen was robata grill, chicken wings with sea salt and jumbo tiger prawn with yuzu pepper. Izakaya dishes were famous for bar snack-style dishes ranged from battered soft shell crab to bronzed and sticky yakitori and crispy tofu cubes served with avocado and Japanese herbs. There were also big dishes with whole roasted lobster with green chili and garlic hojiso butter and rib eye steak. Drink menu counted over 40 different sakes and various types of cocktails for any taste.

‘Do you remember i said that my biggest wish is to visit Japan?’ lady purred coquettishly into his ear, ‘Forget. We do not need 12 hours flight to visit Japan.’ In response, the man laughed and kissed her hand. They stared at cherry blossom installation of sakura tree next to their table.

The decor in Zuma was fresh and trendy with an open kitchen showing the chefs preparing meals. The smiling faces across the room showed that everyone was enjoying their dining experience. Like Nobu, it had a minimalist, sophisticated interior with elegant natural stone and wood decor. However, its personal feature included a huge island bar – the bar with the finest cocktails in Knightsbridge.
