"OUTSTANDING"

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2018“It’s all about the experience” at Sushisamba, from the moment the lightning-quick glass elevator whisks you up to the 38th floor of the Heron Tower. Once inside, you can’t miss the incredible floor-to-ceiling views or the covens of noisy young City types splashing serious amounts of cash at the bar. The “fabulous atmosphere” spills over into the restaurant, where the menu promises a thrilling fusion of Japanese and Latino cuisine – from shrimp tempura with snap pea julienne, spicy mayo and black truffle vinaigrette to refreshing crispy lobster taquitos with avocado, aji amarillo, jalapeños and morado. Other standouts on our list include the multi-coloured sushi rolls, sweet potato noodles served with egg yolk and gold shavings, and a drool-worthy chocolate banana cake with maple butter, plantain chip and rum-spiked ice cream. Samba music blasts from the speakers, while innumerable staff are on hand to deliver “the best service ever”. It’s not everyone’s cup of saké, but high-octane Sushisamba is spot-on for City revellers with deep pockets.

The food was very exotic as it's uniquely fused. The vegetarian dishes were bursting with flavor and there were so many surprising food combinations. The presentation was beautiful. Having a sake sommelier was just perfect as the sake always perfectly complimented the dish. The dessert was so delicious and the views amazing, having a table near the window. The only thing was the service. It took a long time to get service at the bar outdoors. Changing a large bill was next to impossible and chasing staff around was necessary to reclaim belongings from coat check. Almost perfect.

Dined here on a Sunday night. The good stuff: (1) the lift; (2) the friendly and efficient reception staff; (3) the view. The average stuff: (1) the view is awesome but you need to have a window seat to appreciate it; (2) the dining room lacks atmosphere which is surprising considering the fact that it was packed. I can't put my finger on it but it lacked vibe; (3) there are around 100 waiting staff (of I'm exaggerating here) but it was incredibly difficult to order anything when you want/need to. Random waiters came up to introduce themselves just to disappear and not be seen again for ages; (4) the food is good but not great. It was my first time so I asked the waiter for some help. he gave me a 10 minute talk about where the food comes from. I wasn't "helped" in the slightest! (5) the food is very expensive. Ok, that is to be expected. The rent for two floors of prime real estate on the 38th floor of 110 Bishopsgate has to be paid for. I guess what I'm saying is that I didn't feel I got value for my buck (6) we were asked how the food was 9 or 10 times by different waiters. Ok, I'm clearly a grumpy so and so but I found this annoying, particularly as I didn't really want to say "yeah, its ok but not great is it?". All in all, this was a bit disappointing for me and my guest. I wonder what it's like I New York.
