The trendy Knightsbridge eatery Zuma has opened a branch in Hong Kong recently. While we were wandering around Central trying to grab a small bite to eat before our Harry Connick Jr. concert the place came to mind.
We ordered a number of rolls to sample, as we were told that they wouldn't take long.
California maki (HK$90).
Zuma chirashi maki (HK$85).
Toro maki (HK$110).
Boston loster maki (HK$140).
They were all freshly-made with high-quality ingredients. The crispy seaweed and soft tasty rice added points too. We also had some beef skewer (HK$120) from the robata section and it was pretty tasty also.
The light dinner for 2 came to HK$682. I have to say while we enjoyed the meal with this price range I'd rather go to Nobu. The menu in Zuma is nice but not really unique and you can probably get most of the items in other high-end Japanese restaurants, whereas Nobu actually has got some signature dishes. It was a better dining experience compared to cramped Nobu: Zuma has two glitzy floors and spaced out large tables. Not a bad place to impress your date!
