Scores: GFG 5/ Z 27/ H 1

Zuma is a place that I have been to quite a lot over the years, despite being taken over by a PE company, the quality of the food does not seem to have diminished. This restaurant still seems to be incredibly popular, getting a reservation here at a decent time on the weekend is hard. For a while I preferred the atmosphere in Roka, Zuma’s sister restaurant, however, I now think that the gap in the food quality has widened and thus it is worth paying a little more for Zuma.


Karei no karaage- Sole

I was with a large group this time and got to try a lot a lot of dishes including:

Suzuki no osashimi- thinly sliced seabass with yuzu, truffle oil and salmon roe

California maki

Tuna maki

Salmon maki

Dynamite spider roll- softshell crab, chilli mayonnaise, cucumber and wasabi tobiko sauce

Tokudai wafu asparagasu- grilled asparagus with wafu sauce and sesame

Ebi no sumibiyaki yuzu-koshou fuumi- jumbo tiger prawn with yuzu pepper

Karei no karaage- crispy fried lemon sole with spicy ponzu sauce and green onions

Tsubu-miso gako hinadori no oven yaki moromi- miso marinated baby chicken, oven roasted on cedar wood

Yakitori-negima yaki- chicken skewers with spring onions



All of these were between good and excellent. Particularly worth ordering are dishes from the Roka grill.  Also very good are the baby chicken and the deep fried sole, the raw fish here is also good but not up to the standard of some of the more specialist sushi places.



Overall I think that this is one of the best Japanese restaurants with a large menu in London, the atmosphere is fairly loud and busy so one has to bear this in mind.

3.5/ 5
