We are re-opening on July 4th.

Located at the famed Opera Terrace atop the historic Grade II-listed Market Building, this striking space is a vibrant new addition to the area. Crowned by an Eric Parry-designed glass roof, the restaurant runs along the entire east side of the market making for beautiful rooftop views across the piazza.

Bold in design, SUSHISAMBA Covent Garden offers a host of inviting dining and drinking experiences: from the bar with its ‘living ceiling’; the exposed kitchen and high energy sushi bar to the terrace overlooking the square below and the private dining room with its own entrance and terrace.

We went to celebrate my boyfriend birthday. Food was alright but service wasn’t great. Waitress forgot to send one of our main course and we had to ask few times where is our food,eventually arranged when we all finished our main courses. Also some of the starters arrived but we didn’t order them and later on they were added on our bill. No apology or whatsoever, I wouldn’t go back there again even though venue it’s really nice and if the waitress would be nicer to us I’m sure we could have better experience.

Love the idea of the fusion, great ambiance and decor. Food service was very good as well as the quality of the food. Let themselves down with poor bar service (asked twice & waited 20mins for a gin). Their pre theatre menu is good value except your two course has to be starter and main and there’s not much vegetarian or vegan options

I was quite disappointed, beforehand I was excited about the fusion menu but I don’t think it worked. The extortionate price for Kobe beef with not much alternative was a bit shocking. A great spot, lovely decor and well trained staff were a pleasure. I have eaten service (cerviche) in many parts of the world but thought the lack of main ingredient was almost an insult. We ordered gyozas and tuna sashimi after our main food order as we were still hungry, the gyozas were the best thing we had but the sashimi was sinewy (only three pieces!) this location is a tourist trap, poor tourists. I won’t be returning anytime soon, sorry.

Not cheap, but very creative with a great service team that clearly works well together. Really interesting food and all served with a smile and leaving us with plenty of time to get to the opera, just opposite this restaurant.

Very poor service and long waits when we orders basic sushi and starters only/ no mains.

Restaurant was empty yet they gave me a hard time about reservation and the wait staff took too long to bring food

Food a very tasty new “fusion” of different cuisines. All very good. Excellent and very positive service attitude by all staff members. A bit expensive (or very expensive if opting for the £1000 steak...).

While we can’t deny the food was nice, service wasn't great had to ask several times for many things.

The food taste was great but certainly not worth the heafty bill and we were still hungry .

Favorite Japanese fusion restaurant in London. All dishes are amazing and the cocktail is full of layers of taste. I’ve been there three times a week and not tired of the food. Mar Terre is a really creative dish.

It was very nice to start off with but our designated server disappeared after he introduced himself and the service went down hill after that, to the extent that we were asking for service from whomever we could find

I have visited Sushi Samba at Liverpool Street and absolutely loved it. This venue didnt feel that nice from the entry feels really poor, the coats are hanging in the entry room and the small heaters are placed under the staircase. We wasnt really sure who our waiter was as someone else seemed to take care of us or we even had to grab who ever just passed our table as nobody showed up for a very long time. The food wasnt that special, we had order sushi with melted mozzarela on top and it was basicaly just rice conected with melted mozzarela. I wasnt that impressed eventhough the room is very nicely decorated.

Worst service ever despite staff knowing that we had booked for a special occasion. We had ordered starters and were left waiting an hour, even after asking, for my friend's starter to arrive. Our mains were also served before this and after asking the waitress again to check she instead rudely told us we had 15 mins left at the table and that we should eat our food as quick as possible. Ruined the complete evening for my friend who we were supposed to be celebrating!
