Expert review of Zuma
London-based restaurateur Rainer Becker opened Zuma in 2007, and - gosh - was it a good move! It's heavily touted as a style maven haven, but that's unfair on the food which (correctly) is the restaurant's greatest asset.
It serves modern Japanese cuisine, made for sharing, with no real distinction between starters and mains. Free-flowing bubbly at Sunday brunch seems to appeal to rather a lot of people. The sparkling sake is also worth a glug or two.
Split into two levels - with a bar upstairs and a terrace for alfrescoing - Zuma also includes a show kitchen with deep granite dining counters. Glass, wood and stone predominate, and a lot of office workers are disgorged here directly after they've shut down their desktops.
The service is just right - in that you'll be greeted warmly at the door, and then left to get on with enjoying your meal.
In one of the smartest of Hong Kong's downtown malls, Zuma attracts the sort of people who don't have to read the menu from right to left.
Reckon on HK$800 per head before anything alcoholic.
