Diner Reviews
  • "We went to Sushisamba for brunch/lunch on Sunday. We're 3 friends. The view is fantastic and the design of the place and bar is fab. The staff is really professional and knows how to take care of you. Now the letdown was definitely the food.... I had TURBOT EZO sBoth of my options didn't taste much... and my roll was very dry... My friend took the SAMBA LONDON It should be the best roll as it carries the restaurant's name.... it was a great presentation , but not tasty and it had raw red onion...eww. If you want to flirt with sexy waiters that's your place , but if you're looking for a foodie experience than most definitely not ."

  • "There is not one thing I ate (and we ate a lot) that I didn't like. Amazing food. Setting, terrace and views outstanding. But be prepared to pay for it."

  • "The place looked amazing on a Saturday evening. Evening is definitely the best time to go - lovely sunset views, and great ambience when it gets dark outside. The balcony bar looked really nice as well. The food is outstanding. Everything we ordered was fabulous, especially the wagyu taquitos and the grilled black cod in skewers. Ordering little plates allowed us to taste little bits of a lot of dishes. Desserts were lovely as well - we had the With Love from Rio and the Banana Mousse which we enjoyed very much. Service was great as well - the staff gave us great recommendations and were very attentive! Will definitely come back - just maybe not as often as the food is expensive but we now have a venue for celebrating special occasions!"

  • "I had the most perfect experience at SushiSamba. Whilst on the pricier end of the scale, i was happy to pay with the service, quality of food and staff making it a dining experience to remember. With breathtaking views of London coupled with amazing food and drink, it will be somewhere il be visiting again"

  • "Sushisamba is a really cool restaurant in terms of location, view, ambience and menu! I would recommend this place for anyone with an aventurous palate."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "The menu wasn't desperately clear and we were told all plates were for sharing and we ordered at least 20 plates and 4 of these couldn't really be shared - due to the way they were served and due to the size (very small). An expensive, yet enjoyable outing ( the weather played a key role) but left the table considerably lighter in the wallet but still hungry."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "Fabulous food, love the rock shrimp tempura, lamb, scallops, black cod, sushi rolls, sahimi, the list is endless. Nice wine too"
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "A lively atmosphere at this unashamedly touristy venue. Friendly and knowledgable staff and good food. Very Japanese orientated menu. Noisy and very windy outside as it's so high! Take a jacket even on warm evenings. Expensive but good fun for a treat or special occasion."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "We went for lunch on a stunning summer's day, and with an outside table with just spectacular views it was only made more special by the delicious food. Sometimes a little OTT presentation, but fresh, interesting and balanced. Service was just the right side of super friendly. Great drinks too."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "Had a fabulous time at Sushi Samba - the staff were very attentive and helpful and explained the concept and even suggested certain dishes that were more complimentary with each other than the ones we originally chose! And of course they were right! The food was delicious. The cocktails were fab. Love the decor, love the tribal latin-imfluenced background house music. But the pièce de résistance is the spectacular view of London from the balcony! Simply amazing on a balmy warm clear summer night!"
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "Was half expecting the food here to be pretty average with the main attraction being the views! But in fact each of the six dished we ordered was delicious. The views are incredible, cocktails tasty and we had an amazing evening. It is expensive but definitely worth it for a special occasion."
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "Took my partner for dinner to celebrate his birthday. Very classy restaurant, with amazing service. We got a lot of attention from the waiter, which was lovely. The food was spectacular; every plate had a completely unique and luxurious taste. Go there for food you can really appreciate. Costs a bomb but you get what you pay for. Definitely will not be my last time dining there!"
    dined on 20/07/2014
  • "Nice food but overly attentive waitress who got deeply annoying as she kept moving plates around on our table. Thought the food was expensive for what you got, although did taste good. Bit disappointed to be put at a table overlooking the ugly roof - rather than one of the panoramic views - particularly given the restaurant was nowhere near full. Took an overly long time to get seated too. All in was an ok experience but not good enoguh to make me want to go back."
    dined on 20/07/2014
  • "Booked this restaurant for friends birthday. Wasn't sure what to expect but was not disappointed! The restaurant is gorgeous and the views are amazing. Would recommend for large parties as there is a real party atmosphere. The food was amazing with extremely attentive staff. Thank you for a lovely night! The only thing I would say is that the music is very loud so maybe not the best setting for a couple on a romantic date."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "What can i say this place has it down to a T. The service was amazing,very friendly and attentive staff (even helped us with what utensils we should be using for each for special sushi rolls). The view is amazing, washed down with beautifully prepared cocktails. We will defenitly be returning. Thanks Sushisamba!!"
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "What a awesome restaurant! Would love to go back tonight if I could!"
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "I was there for a special occasion. Would have appreciated a better table. Table was not reserved for me. Staff were trying to be helpful but they lacked a certain element of courtesy. Was waiting most of the time so that the waiters notice me, to place orders etc."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • " Does not worth the money that you spend and the fact that you have to book a table 2 months in advance. Food and drinks were average (5 dishes and 2 drinks 130£) Service was very bad, they were rushing all the time, they make us feel very uncomfortable , everybody, the manager included(the guy with grey suit ).they allow 2 hours for eat but they served all the food that we ordered in 20minutes and 2 times the waiter changed the plates before we were finished to eat. Music was very loud was hard to having a nice conversation. No one from the staff was smiling and making you fell welcome.I was suppose to have a special and romantic night with my Gf we ended to have something average with an high bill. I will never going there anymore."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "great venue, original, super good food but it's too expensive related to the portion (4 super slim slice of fish for 13£)... that's not really great value for money, ok it's good food but it's a bargain to ask 13£ for that. you can go there 1 time in your life and that's it.. you pay 90£ for 2 and then you are still very hungry. it was a great experience but not sure i want to come back again."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Really exciting restaurant with great food and views."

  • "We picked the perfect day to go to SS. The sun was shining and we sat on the terrace. Our waiter was very cheerful and nice. A Frenchie:-) Fresh drinks and food were amazing."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "I took my partner for his 21st. In pre booking option I mentioned this and asked about suggestions to make it a more memorable evening, none received. The service was ok but expected more from the initial waiter, he said he would explain the menu but just read it to us... The food itself was very nice the Peruvian steak especially. We tried a number"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "The view was amazing and good ambience. Service by waiter was slow and didn't deliver the menu option well. Food was nice, deserts and wine also lovely."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "It's hard to think of anything wrong or bad to say about Sushi Samba. So some of the good parts.. All the staff have nice attitudes, very friendly and very helpful.. The atmosphere is brilliant and you get a nice vibe.. The views are amazing.. We tried dishes based on suggestions from the staff and they were on point every time.. Thinking back about it makes me realise more just how great everything about it was.."
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "A combination of food from Japan, Brazil and Peru makes Sushisamba a great place for foodies. Add the high speed scenic lift, the spectacular views from the 38th Floor of Heron Tower, the beautiful bars inside and outdoors and the proximity to Liverpool Street Station, and you have an almost perfect setting for any occasion. The only downside for me was the fact that on a glorious hot summer's day, the fantastic outside terrace eating area had absolutely no shade,. So except for those not worried about sun damage to their skin, it was a no go area, which was a shame. Try the Samba Rolls - exquisite, and the Wagyu Beef served raw for you to quickly cook on hot stones. Yummy!!!"
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "The view is absolutely stunning. Food is tasty and innovative!!! worth trying"
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "Food was very good, service in the bar very slow and drinks very expensive. The views are nice but not amazing - the sunset was blocked by large piece of machinery. A treat but will not be returning."
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "We went for dinner to celebrate our engagement a week earlier and were treated to a lively evening replete with stunning sunset (our table had fantastic views especially on such a clear night) and samba dancers who invaded the restaurant twice during the evening to mark the world cup final which was taking place; it added to the atmosphere on a truly memorable occasion. Our waiter was friendly and competent, as were the front of house staff. The cocktails were delicious and food was excellent; the wagyu beef gyoza are unmissable and all dishes lived up to the fusion element suggested by the name. We would definitely go back, although perhaps only for special occasions given our sizeable bill..."
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "Amazing food. Flavours were stunning. Cocktails brilliant. Service was very good, waiter friendly and knowledgable. And to top off our evening samba dancers performed to drummers to celebrate the World Cup. Great restaurant, would dine there."
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "Great food, amazing environment. Definitely a treat given the price."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "A fantastic location with a quirky menu providing Sushi with an amazing south American twist, and it works. The location is cool with amazing views over London to enjoy as you wine and dine."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "The menu was both interesting and somewhat confusing and when our waiter began his explanation it was quite longwinded an became slightly overwhelming. That said he was helpful and courteous. Quite some time passes and we asked (another waiter) if we could order a drink after which he took our food order. My wife then heard our original waiter say to another table that he was finished for the day. At two other occasions we had to seek assistance from different members of staff because neither of the people who has served our table had come back to us even though menus were on our table. We are not demanding people but when you are paying almost double what a good meal in London normally costs I would expect much better service."
