The Boyfriend with his birthday dessert
On Thursday it was my boyfriend's birthday and I took him for a surprise birthday dinner at Zuma in Knightsbridge. Zuma offers traditional Japanese food with a twist and I can honestly say I had some of the best food I have ever eaten. It's pretty pricey however it is worth every single penny. The restaurant is known for being notoriously hard to get in to (I booked a month in advance, I had been wanting to go for a really long time!) and often has paparazzi swarming the entrance. The decor was sophisticated yet modern and there was a naturally relaxed atmosphere. We were shown to our table straight away and the staff were super friendly and helpful without being slightly irritating (as some restaurant staff can be!). We drunk extremely tasty, and extremely strong(!) mojito's and watermelon martini's. Every single piece of food we ordered was melt in the mouth delicious with explosions of flavour I have never tasted before. The staff were also kind enough to put together an unplanned birthday dessert at he last minute which I was extremely grateful for. Needless to say we ordered a LOT of food, far too much to mention so I have just included my favourites. Please, if you ever want to go somewhere special GO TO ZUMA. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough!
