Getting a reservation was very difficult and it was disappointing to see a few empty tables when we went for dinner. The place is overhyped and the food just doesn't make the cut. The cid and sushi were good but the Japanese at Roka, Sushi...More

Simply awful. If you liked the original in Mayfair or if you frequent Nobu and Zuma you will hate this place. The quality of the service, food and lousy atmosphere make this a favourite of tourists and people who don't know. It simply isn't good...More

This is a restaurant that will cost roughly 150 pounds per person for a normal meal (with just 1-2 drinks, not an expensive wine) in the heart of Knightsbridge, supposedly a fine dining experience. The service is better in a pizzeria than in Sumosan. These...More

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw

Struggling to choose between Italian and Japanese? Well, at this restaurant, cocktail bar and late-night lounge, you don't have to. After 14 years on Albemarle Street, Sumosan's relocation to Knightsbridge brings with it a menu that splits itself right between both, as well as a new name (twiga is Swahili for 'giraffe'). Beyond the monochrome entrance hall lies a basement lounge, a first-floor restaurant and the bar above that, with room for 200 diners altogether. This newcomer retains the same dizzying levels of interior swank as Mayfair. It's a concoction of black, bronze, alabaster and dark wood, overseen by Italian design studio Michele Bönan. The huge site has been undertaken in partnership with Flavio Briatore (the former manager of the Benetton Formula 1 team) and there's room for 300 guests over two floors. Our advice? Don't miss the miso aubergine and spicy king crab dishes. The famously sublime sushi is now joined by the likes of lobster paccheri pasta, in a fresh tomato sauce. Yes, there's a Limoncello Wasabi cocktail on the list, but this is cuisine for the indecisive, not the fusion fan.
