There is no doubting that Zuma is a good restaurant. The food (which is the primary concern of a restaurant) is always perfect. The rest of the elements that go to make up a restaurant are in the ‘take it or leave it’ category.
It is a celeb style hangout. It is loud not buzzy. It overshadows the real reason you are there.
For those who have not experienced Zuma, you must. If you fancy yourself, you may return. If you like good food and want to have a conversation with your friends you probably won't.
The price reflects the attitude of the place. You pay for great ingredients, fancy sounding cocktails a restaurant designed by a man called ‘super potato’. You may also be still paying for the fact that Russell Crowe had a fight in the loos many years ago.
I do like it, in small doses. Maybe I am getting old.
In all honesty I prefer it sibling, Roka. Smaller, Subtler and Sophisticated.
