About
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

On Sunday, my friend and I had the most wonderful time at Sumosan Twiga. The staff was incredibly friendly, the food was delicious, and the music could not have been more perfect. As the evening progressed, we decided to head to the club and join...a friend's table. The atmosphere was electric. The vibe was just right, and we were truly enjoying ourselves. However, there was one downside to an otherwise fantastic evening. The Italian manager, Francesco, was constantly shouting at people, which made the atmosphere uncomfortable at times. It was particularly awkward when he directed his shouting towards us in front of our friends. Despite the amazing experience we were having, the presence of such a negative element put a damper on our evening. It was disappointing to have such a memorable night tainted by one staff member's behavior. We have always loved coming to Twiga and have had countless fun nights there, but this unfortunate incident has left a sour taste in our mouths. I hope management addresses this issue so that other patrons can continue to enjoy everything Sumosan Twiga has to offer.More
