A great mix of LatAm and Japanese. The high floor view of London is second to none. The presentation of the food is outstanding and you have be little adventurous to get the most out of the experience. It's not cheap buts it's value for money.

The placa os beautiful and the roll tiger was delicious the samba was nothing special . We also ate a "muqueca" that was nice. The problem is that we wait 30 min for the first waiter come to note just drinks. Than wait 30 min more to ask dessert. Finally we gave up. The restaurante is very expensive and service terrible. And more courious was that it was empty and with a lot of employes!!!

Hi,
We`ve been advised by Marc E. (restaurant Manager) to share our feedback as it would be relevant for the team to learn from their mistake.
Here we go.
Sushi Samba is an amazing place for its venue and menu. We feel quiet privileged going in, enjoying an incredible view over the city of London.
The service is however atrocious. We were missing two dishes and it went down ill from there. Had to show pictures (thankfully the plates looks superb so we took pictures), justify ourselves and argue. All members of our party work in catering industry and we know very well that sometimes mistake happens and we would have never been difficult about it. Insinuating that we are lying, and switching the error onto us is definitely another story. For such a unique and high standard restaurant like theirs, it is truly disheartening.

Second time here (go only for special occassions as it isn't cheap if you want a good meal). Amazing food, menu is so varied that can always try something new when you go. We were late for out reservation but still got a table. The staff are friendly on the most part. Love the place and the view

Read many mixed reviews before going so was worried about our experience. It was a treat for my BF for his 30th. I started to panic when I got a text from Sushi Samba on a Tuesday asking me to confirm my booking for the Wednesday. I had booked it for a Saturday! I called to find out what was going on and the woman on the phone was very short with me, not at all apologetic or reassuring and made me feel like I was a complete pain. I asked for her to check my booking as the text was incorrect. She said I must have made 2 bookings in error, that it was my fault not their system error! I assure you I had not made a mistake! However, arrived on Saturday and had a wonderful time. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive and helped us with the menu, the food was amazing and came very quickly, great view too. Strongly recommend the shrimp tempura! I'm glad my experience was a good one as for the price I paid I would have been very upset if it had been as bad as many others have said.

Amazing inside, fabulous views, the food is heavenly. Prices are mostly surprisingly reasonable for a trendy place in the city, although the drinks are expensive - stick with the cocktails rather than with the massively overpriced wine list.

I booked this restaurant for myself, my fiancee and my parents to celebrate my birthday. I have been to Sushi Samba several times and have always had great food and great service but unfortunately i experienced terrible service on this occasion!

To begin with we let the restaurant know we were there and they couldn't find the booking. I was accused of not making a booking but luckily i had the opentable confirmation on my phone so after a ten minute wait they showed us to our table. The beginning of the meal was great but half way through our waiter let us know he was going on a break. We thought it wouldn't be an issue as it's happened to us before when dining here. The new waiter cleared our table of everything then offered us the dessert menu - we hadn't received half of the dishes we had ordered! We let him know that he had made a mistake and that several dishes were still to arrive. He apologised then disappeared. We assumed they would be bought out but after a 30minute wait we had to ask a different waitress. She admitted they had lost the order and asked us to reorder. Another 20mins later the dishes arrived. We were given the sushi rolls at no cost but i don't think we should have been made to pay for any of the dishes after such a long wait and messing up our order twice! The rest of the meal ran smoothly until my dad asked for to pay the bill and handed the ticket he had for the tab at the bar. Again we waited for about 15 minutes before someone had told us that no card matched the ticket he had given then, he was asked to explain the type of card he had and luckily they went away for another 10minutes and came back with the card. BUT they had lost the drinks order that he had at the bar - which was only 2 drinks that we were asked to pay for. Again - I think after another mess up they should have written off the drink bill to apologise!

I booked our table 2 months in advance. I only got a reservation for 17.45h. I made a remark and asked for a later time. I didn't got an answer so I wrote an other email around 4 weeks later. And the same happend!! I didn't got an answer. I think that's really not correct and I am disappointed about that.

I booked a meal to make my partners birthday a little extra special. He loved it and the views from the bar overlooking London were wonderful as we sat in the window area overlooking the Gherkin as we sipped our drinks. However the views from the restaurant whilst eating were not of the best parts of London and this was the only let down of the occasion. The food was fantastic and overall the price was reasonable. We will be going again sometime. Some of the waiters from South America spoke so fast that it was difficult for us to understand especially when trying to make selections from the menu where we felt that we needed some guidance. The seafood was wonderful and we couldn't manage a sweet. They went to the trouble of letting my partner out onto the balcony to take some photos when it was closed due to the rain. This goes to show that they do go the extra mile if you simply ask.

We arrived at 5pm having booked the table six weeks earlier as an end of summer holiday treat for myself, my husband and two teenagers. We were whisked up to the 38th floor in the amazing glass lift and walked into the welcoming brightly lit bar space and through to the restaurant. Our server Tariq seated us by the window as requested and brought us water to the table along with some lime slices which was a nice touch. He went through the menu with us and warned us against over ordering. My son ordered fillet steak from the robata and loved it so much that he ordered a second portion - he refused to share it so I have no idea how good it was but as he went for seconds I can only presume it was great. The sushi rolls were lovely and the wasabi was fresh. The robata poussin was delicious and the accompanying sauce really went well with it. My daughter loved the miso soup and we all enjoyed the tempura shrimps. The edamame beans were lovely and salty and we squeezed the lime juice over them to add some zing. During our meal the weather changed from sunny to raining and we had the privilege of seeing rainbows from our table. Although the bill was nearly £200 we really enjoyed the meal and the experience and will go back in a few months time.

It goes without saying that the venue and location are fabulous and for that alone a visit to SushiSamba would be a great experience but to have food that was excellent made this an outstanding dinning experience. The beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The staff were helpful and attentive and I have no hesitation in recommending Sushi Samba. However it is expensive but for a special occasion well worth paying the extra for exceptional quality.

First up: this is the most expensive food I've ever eaten. This means I am unlikely ever to be able to go again. But what an experience! From the concept - a fusion of Japanese, Peruvian and Brazilian cuisine, and the setting - dining way above London, watching the drama of English summer weather advancing across the capital, to the service - exactly the right mix of fun, energy, enthusiasm and discretion, this was the complete treat. In the sky.
The only downside was the bar area where we waited for our table. Fabulous views down the river, but grubby, tired furniture, and sticky, dirty floor made me worry about the meal to come. Happily, the meal blew all that away - but at those prices, I'd expect the bar to be exceptional too!

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The food was fabulous and stunning to look at and of course there's the view. I have marked the service down even though our waiter was charming and the food came fast because drinks were very slow. We had nearly finished our first selection of food when the wine my husband had carefully chosen finally arrived. Shame as that is my only complaint.

Sumptuous food with gorgeous and encompassing views of London. Marred by some of the worst service of any London restaurant. It took half an hour for drinks to be served. We tried to get our waiter's attention for twenty minutes unsuccessfully and it took two visits to the manager before he got another waiter to take our order.
