Sushisamba has been around in London for quite some time with other restaurants in Las Vegas, Miami and Amsterdam. In the early years of its opening Sushisamba was the place to be seen. These days it still manages to make every visit special with ever new creations fusing Japan, Brazil and Peru onto one delicious plate.
Many people love going just to the bar simply because the ride with the dedicated glass lift can be quite thrilling, offering you stunning views over London whilst your ears are popping. The bar area itself is quite small and seating at the window is scarce and you’ll be lucky to snatch one.
The restaurant itself is free of crisp white and perfectly ironed tablecloth, but instead incorporates a touch of it’s signature orange into the décor. Hundreds of lightbulbs hanging from the ceiling makes you think you are part of a huge art installation. However, one has to wonder who cleans all these strings and is responsible for changing the bulbs.
The food does not disappoint, it looks good and tastes even better. One of our personal highlights is the Nikkei seviche which is an absolute delight. We would encourage avoiding large plates and instead going for a bigger selection of smaller plates (that you can share) to completely experience the different flavours. There is also the option of a set-menu as well as gluten conscious and vegan dishes.
We recommend reserving a table one hour before sunset. This way you can experience the views by day and night. (On Sunday evenings you will have a better chance of selecting booking times a bit more freely).
Dinner for two incl. service but without alcoholic drinks will cost about £100. For a truly luxurious dining experience you can go for the Kobe Beef Ishiyaki (1kg of Kobe beef) which will set you back a cool £1000 (excluding service, drinks and sides).
