SquareMeal Review of
Zuma’s frenetic open kitchen might deliver the theatre at this Knightsbridge hotspot, but it’s the bar that provides the intoxicating energy levels. An effervescent, pulsating mix of high rollers, the cast of drinkers radiates from a stunning, square counter where the bar staff work their magic. Nothing is too much trouble when it comes to creating the perfect cocktail: a bespoke barrel-aging system infuses Zacapa rum with its own subtle rhubarb flavour, while the mixologists scour the globe in search of the perfect brews for Zuma’s Chanoyu range of tea-inspired cocktails (our Beri No Hana mixed Luksusowa vodka with garden-berry tea syrup and passion fruit). Staff can also help you navigate the roster of around 40 different brands of saké, or help pick a bottle from a stellar wine list that soars into some all-time-great vintages. Sushi, sashimi and the robata grill provide exemplary sustenance.
