This German chef capitalises on his London success to open a Japanese restaurant in Hong Kong.

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.

Food and drink

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.

Ambience

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. 

Service

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.

Location

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.

Price advice

Reckon on HK$800 per head before anything alcoholic.
