Zuma: still the place to eat sushi

Zuma first opened its swish doors over a decade ago, and it's still going strong. The gorgeous Nicole Scherzinger was spotted wearing a slinky LBD to dinner there just last week. The hotspot is also a firm favourite of the Ecclestone sisters, Tamara and Petra, Helen Flanagan, and it's even had the royal seal of approval from Prince Andrew.

Zuma London is conveniently tucked away from Knightsbridge station and the hordes of Harrods shoppers who constantly zoom past in their flashy sports cars. The swanky restaurant – always buzzing – feels airy and classy, with high ceilings and sophisticated A-list sets congregating around shared platters of food.

Expect to rub shoulders with the capital's gliteratti, as well as businessmen clad in starched shirts and ladies dressed head-to-toe in designer gear.

A long-standing gastronomic haven, Zuma offers delicious Japanese pub food – otherwise known as izakaya. The comprehensive menu features intensely flavoured dishes, simply presented, to be shared or enjoyed individually. Tuck into sushi and sashimi, dynamite spider rolls, unagi bo zushi (grilled fresh water eel with avocado, sweet omelette and gobo) and zuma chirashi maki (a mixed seafood selection with avocado, cucumber and shiso).

 Offerings from the robata grill include a mouth-watering jumbo tiger prawn with yuzu pepper and spicy beef tenderloin with sesame, red chilli and sweet soy. If you're too spoilt for choice, the extensive tasting menu, at £124 for two, will give you a taste of all of the house's best offerings. Whatever you do at Zuma, make sure you leave room for dessert. Yuzu lime pie, green tea and banana cake and a range of Zuma sorbets with king lychee and coconut biscuit are just a few of the sweet treats up for grabs.
