"From the elevator ride and panoramic views to the alfresco bar and gold-standard service, Sushisamba is a worthy recipient of my money any day" writes one ardent fan of this audaciously expensive, high-octane eyrie atop the Heron Tower. "Bring your corporate credit card" if you want to sip exotic cocktails at the rammed bar, otherwise pay top dollar for an eye-poppingly attractive mix of Latino-accented Japanese delights. As the name suggests, this place adds samba to its sushi, so expect "uniquely fused" ideas ranging from scallop ceviche with pickled mandarin or yellowtail tiradito with jalapeño and lemongrass to innovative 'samba rolls' – all dotted with violets and freeze-dried truffle. Alternatively, hit the big time with some luxurious Kobe beef, "outrageously good" black cod skewers or robata-grilled lamb chops with coconut and
red miso, before consulting the saké sommelier for some premium shots. A few niggles aside, this is an "almost perfect" fit for reckless revellers with fat wallets.
I’ve already made it to the top of the 40th floor and dined at Duck & Waffle. Now it was time for me to head over to Sushisamba. It was a colleague leaving party and I had a day off. I made my way to Heron Tower on a Friday night and the queues form. Ladies and gentleman all dressed up ready to let their hair down on a summer night. The familiar whoosh feeling of ascending the air right to the top going to the 38th floor, as the bell ding and opened it doors. I hurried over to the spiraling stairs and went down to the terrace bar, a small little square overlooking the beautiful London skyline with heaters to keep...

To kick off my birthday celebrations in style, two of my best gal pals (Josie and Grace) and I went for dinner at Sushisamba, located on the 39th floor of the Heron Tower. Aside from being a 5-minute walk from my office, it’s also an incredibly well-loved restaurant, due to its unusual & delicious blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, along with stunning panoramic views of London.Once you’ve passed through the red ropes, you enter a glass elevator that whisks you up 39 floors at lightning speed. The time to appreciate the views of our beautiful capital as you ascend into the sky is short & sweet...

When you step inside the panoramic glass elevators that whisk you from street level up to the 39th floor of London’s Heron Tower you can’t help feeling a bit like Charlie Bucket travelling to the chocolate factory. However I think that even Willy Wonka would have been hard pressed to conjure up a feast as exquisite as the one that I was lucky to partake in at Sushisamba.We started off with some cocktails whilst we enjoyed the evening sun and the spectacular views of the city. Even though it was a Sunday night, the bar and restaurant was full and we imbibed the great vibe that this restaurant is rightly lauded...

Already established as one of the finest restaurants in the UK, Sushi Samba sits at the 38th floor of the Heron Tower. With it's fresh, funky and almost futuristic architectural design, Sushi Samba manages to be extravagant without being intimidating.However, I'll be honest, when I asked a friend who frequents London's finer restaurants about Sushi Samba, he warned 'great food, great place but bad customer service'. As a result I was extremely worried when although some of my party were on time, the rest of us were running ten minutes late!Restaurants such as these only hold your table for two hours...

In 2012, SushiSamba finally made its long-awaited arrival in London. Situated towards the top of the Heron Tower in the City of London, the restaurant is a welcome and unique addition to the city’s dining scene, with its fusion of Brazilian, Japanese and Peruvian cuisine. Like many women of my age, I first heard of SushiSamba on an episode of seminal TV show Sex And The City when the New York venue featured in a scene. I remember admiring the venue and hoping to visit one day. While I’ve never got round to visiting SushiSamba on my New York trips, I did enjoy a meal at the Las Vegas branch at the Palazzo last October...

My favourite view of London is the one from Primrose Hill, above Regents Park, where I can sit right on top and feel like the kingdom of London is at my feet. Last week, after dining at the illustrious Sushisamba on the 38th floor of the Heron Tower, this opinion has not changed. But let’s just say that Primrose Hill didn’t serve melt-in-the-mouth tuna belly sashimi, and my ears certainly didn’t pop on the way up…Let me preface this review with the disclaimer that I did not, and could not have, paid for the meal myself. The prices at Sushisamba are nothing short of extortionate, but this is clear when observing...

Tourist guide books often note that London no longer has a high-rise rotating tower restaurant like Berlin’s TV Tower or Toronto’s CN Tower. While thankfully true, this doesn’t mean London is short of skyscraper restaurants – far from it. There are plenty of places where you’re paying more for the view then you are for the food. Sushisamba lies just one floor below Duck and Waffle in the City’s Heron Tower, but couldn’t be more different. As if the panoramic views of the capital weren’t enough, the main dining room has a vaulted ceiling quite unlike any other, while an incandescent tree lights up the drinking balcony.Sushisamba’s...

Sushi Samba is an incredibly impressive restaurant occupying the 38th and 39th floors of Heron Tower, making it one of London’s highest restaurants.Upon arrival, we were greeted by a host at the bottom of the tower, before taking the glass fronted lift to the restaurant itself. This journey is not for the faint hearted. The lift will most certainly be enjoyable for those who do not have a problem with heights; however, if you do, I might suggest that you close your eyes until you reach the top. If you do close your eyes, you won’t be disappointed with the view that will greet you at the top.
