After the Miele's Food guide, I decided to give "ZUMA", the Japanese restaurant @ Landmark (Central) a try on Sat.
Will write more later in detail but for now, my rating summary: (Some Pictures of dinner)
Ambience was lovely with sophisticated chic interior decor, served with a touch of understated luxury setting. It's aimed to be posh yet inviting, and hit the mark perfectly.
The service was a little TOO eager, with 5 different waiters asking me what wine/cocktails I would like to have within a span of 5mins. That isnt including repeat queries by 2 waiter. It got to a point I have to tell them to BACK OFF and internally rendering them desperate.... Depending on which waiter who serve you, you can get a range of very shy, collected, or alittle abrupt waiter service. While they are perfectly alright and friendly enough, I have yet get the sense that they are immaculate nor professionally trained.
The ingredients are really fresh, well prepared and served in the most delightful presentation. To have a true sample of the wide assortment, we tried the "Winter Taster" menu @ HK$1380++/ per person (min 2), which comprised of chef's selections. I have to say the alacarte looked really yummy as well. After the many courses, there was one/two misses which wasnt particularly impressive but overall, we were pleasantly delighted. At the end of the meal, I felt the portions were just right.
A truly memorable experience and if you have someone special to impress or treat, or a occasion due for celebration, this is definitely a place worthy of consideration.
