Review: Sumosan Twiga


165 Sloane St, SW1X 9QB

‘Japanese and Italian cuisine come together in Sloane Street’


Sumosan Twiga, the latest project by Italian businessman, Flavio Briotore is now open on Sloane Street relocating from its original site on Albemarle Street.  A stunning blend of two dynamic cuisines – award-winning sushi with Japanese hot dishes alongside classic Italian fare.  This London restaurant now joins forces with the two other successful ventures – one in Monaco and the other in Dubai!  The two head chefs will each specialise in one of the two cuisines on offer to guests.


As we arrived at the very swanky location on Sloane Street we entered into a world of opulence.  Spread across three levels with lounge bar, restaurant and basement club area, the design of the venue is both contemporary and elegant but with an air of stylish simplicity.


Sitting to dine, we took the opportunity to experience both cuisines, Japanese and Italian!  We started with a Salmon Carpaccio and Sumosan Tuna Tartare, both tasting as superb as they looked.  Moving onto the main courses we plumped for Alaskan Black Cod with Miso and Calf’s liver Italian style with grilled polenta, absolutely delicious.  Although, we were full to bursting, one look of the desserts and we could not say no.


A great addition to the London restaurant scene plus with the added advantage of both a lounge bar and club.  For a special night out, well worth the visit.
