                                                          I booked a table for my birthday dinner with friends, The venue is so pretty and staff really welcoming. The food came quick and was really nice. I like spices and it could have been seasoned for my liking a biit more but the food was not bland. Their garlic shrimps is something to order! Good value for the food we got. Thanks for letting me have a great birthday dinner!

                                                          Loved their potato chips and avocado dip. The fish was good. I did not feel the shrimps were fresh though. Lovely ambiance

                                                          Quite understaffed and rather pricey but, on balance, the pleasant environment and decent food made for a nice outing with friends from work.

                                                          Very good service. We sat outdoors by the pedestrianized street off Kensington High Street. It was very pleasant. The food was quite good, and the wine list included reasonably priced, but good-quality selections.

                                                          Lovely restaurant, lovely food and great service, but the music is far too loud - it’s hard to hear to speak with the people you are having dinner with. It’s not background music.

                                                          The menu is creative, however it lacks flavour. We had the duck salad. The nuts over powered the dish and the duck was dry. The bravas potatoes were ROCK hard. The sirloin with chim was to heavily seasoned every bite was met with huge salt crystals. We had Prawns to start they were under seasoned. The Padron peppers were amazing soooo tasty! I highly recommend; they also gave us a complimentary soup to start it was scrumptious. Sooo yummy. I’ve never had a soup like that before. PACKED full of flavour !

                                                          Ok. Was overpriced. Service was good but not that many trained professionals on the team. Music loud. Weird table layout downstairs and felt more like an overpriced tourist destination

                                                          The food was delicious and my partner who is a picky eater ate and enjoyed every dish! The service was friendly and fast and they even sang Happy Birthday to me. The decor and ambience was relaxing and exotic. Would definitely recommend and we will be coming back soon!

                                                          Food was absolutely superb - lots of really tasty bites to try, all excellent… especially the tuna tacos!

                                                          Once again I had a wonderful time. The staff was professional, the food was incredible and I never get tired of the amazing ambiance inside zuaya. My favorite will forever be the corn cake and the wild rice. Once again, thank you and see you soon because for sure, we will be back.

                                                          Was able to book this restaurant for 30 mins after I was scrolling. Perfect time to walk there and they were expecting us. The whole restaurant was busy and vibing at 9:30/10:30 on a Wednesday. The food and cocktails were excellent. We had 8 dishes between 3 which was probably a bit too much. They’re quite large for tapas portions. Would most recommend the octopus and Iberian pork

                                                          I had a birthday last night and the servicing was an absolutely mess. we were 8 and they kept bringing us the wrong orders plus my sister got the wrong order because they waiter didn't even know the names of the tapas, we also miss some tapas, my other friend found a piece of rubber band on her guacamole and also at the end they charged the wrong amount to one of my other friends. Overall not a great experience. The only positive side is that they give us the dessert and drinks on them but honestly it was not worth it at all.

                                                          Nice restaurant. I did find two or three plates a tad too salty but very good otherwise. The Mocktails were amazing so I can only assume their Cocktails are also great. I would return.

                                                          It was so bad. The food portions were so small for such high prices and the food is not filling at all! The services was some what okay and the food barely had that much flavor except for the chicken. Overall shoulda gone to shake shack

                                                          Food and drink is more to the pricey side but packed with taste and beautifully presented. Attentive staff. Has a good atmosphere but not too noisy. Would recommend.
