We were here a busy Friday night, and the place was packed. We were three girls and chose the smallest tasting/sharing menu. We also had a fantastic wine (90 pounds) and three glasses of champagne. It all added up to more than 420 pounds, which could have been if the food had been more spectacular and the service impeccable. Example... More

This was my second visit to the acclaimed Japanese restaurant in Knightsbridge. There is a lot of energy to absorb, whether sitting at the tables or at the sushi bar, watching the art and science of the chefs, or being warmed by the robata. grill. I was by myself and was lucky enough to get a seat without to much... More

Zuma is a high end restaurant, I'm pretty sure anything you take will taste good but you should really only go if you can afford as it's really expensive and it's mainly frequented by rich Londoners and celebrities. The meat is very tender and I've rarely eaten that nice meat. The menu is a little complicated and thus I recommend... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
