Zuaya is an upscale South American restaurant on High Street Kensington. Sure, it's a bit Made In Chelsea (here’s looking at you nude velvet seating, inexplicable bamboo in the toilets and cocktails served in mock tribal mugs), but the food here isn’t just bland stomach lining material for your next cosmo. The menu is full of South American favourites, from Peruvian rib eye to stone bass ceviche, squid tacos to a very tasty crispy duck salad. Granted, it’s not the place for cheap eats but there is an £18 three-course business lunch option, or a £40 set tasting menu. Be warned, Thursday to Saturday there’s a DJ blasting house tunes, which is perfect for a catch up with a flood of cocktails, but probably not the place for a quaint sit down meal.
