Let's start with the obvious… the location is absolutely amazing. Especially in London where such views are still quite rare, this a great bonus. But the real surprise here was the food… the “mariage” of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian foods sounds a bit worrying. Espcially since other types of fusion menus have been overdone in recent times. But here it works as the chefs have gone to lengths to balance everything cleanly and the staff are very knowledgeable regarding what goes well together and what doesn't. As usual with “exported” dining experiences there are down points. And the main one here is the bar. The cocktails are good, but the bar itself is run in a slightly messy way which shouldn't be the case given the steep prices… However detach yourself from the sticky counter and make your way to your table and the view, the food and the service make this a difficult place to beat. Surely the new Zuma on top of the Shard will be even higher end and possilby a bit smaller and more intimate, but if you miss the excellent “destination dining” that exists in other mega-cities Sushisamba is very good place to start. It was very cold during our visit, but that roof terrace will be great fun in spring too…
