We came to Sumosan Twiga on a Saturday night and had no idea what to expect. The restaurant is on two spacious floors upstairs and the kitchen is on the first floor so food had to be carried upstairs continuously. There is a bar area on each floor and we were seated on the first floor. The menu is a... More

So....we went for the early bird special...on a Friday night...my sister and I and a 7pm reservation...which we were very kindly asked to liberate within an hour and a half or otherwise we would have to sit upstairs....in the naughty corner? Sumosan Twiga feels like a restaurant in someone's house....the room actually feels like a big sitting room converted into... More

Very poor service. Manager doesn't not how to talk to client, lack of customer care skills. Food overpriced. I will never go again to this restaurant.

Ate a lovely dinner with my girlfriend. Service was impeccable. The tuna tartar was excellent and so was all of our sashimi and sushi, which was incredibly fresh and very tasty! Pricey restaurant but definitely worth it.

I was very excited about this opening as its close to the place I work and I really like sushi. Went there with girls and 3 of us agreed that will never come back. As soon as we were set at the table it felt very uncomfortable sitting and 1st waiter that approached us smelled of sweat. No atmosphere at... More

I had a booking at 7.45 and hosted 3 friends who the night before had not had a good experience at a newly opened Japanese restaurant in Mayfair. I encouraged them to try the recently relocated Sumosan. One of my friends had been to the Sumosan in Kiev and Twiga in Puerto Cervo and I had been to the Sumosan... More

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.
