SquareMeal Review of Sushisamba (bar)

From the moment the glass-box express lift whisks you 38 floors up the face of Heron Tower, this cocky Japanese/Latino fusion pile screams ‘Las Vegas’ – a vision of slick selfie-stick perfection and pizzazz aimed at the big-money crowd. The later the hour, the louder the DJs and the livelier the scene as booze-fuelled high rollers ramp up the party vibe. To drink, investigate Asian-inspired takes on the classics: a Gimlet doctored with coconut and kaffir leaf, a Martini involving Grey Goose La Poire Nashi or a Negroni manqué made with Hibiki Japanese whisky and plum liqueur. If the latter doesn't warm you up, the fire pits and snuggly blankets on the breezy sky terrace should do the trick. With its centrepiece alfresco bar under the flame and metallic leaf canopy of a giant tree sculpture, this is a soothing sanctuary away from the mayhem.

Kremena S. 04 November 2012

I have organised my husband's 30th Birthday party at Sushi Samba and I can say that they have ruined it! The reason was the dress code which is casual elegant. I am not originally from this country and for me wasn't cristal clear what exactly that means and I can say that I have checked many times their website for some information before organising the event. It was me and my husband who went first for a dinner and we expected our guests in the bar area after that. It turned up that some of the guests couldn't come in because they were wearing particular type of trainers. As no one mentioned it before let me tell you that DARK COLOUR TRAINERS FOR THE MEN ARE ALLOWED AND LIGHT COLOUR TRAINERS ARE ALLOWED ONLY FOR THOSE WHO ARE EATING IN THE RESTAURANT! This doesn't make any sense at all or even if they are so strict about the rules, why this is not mentioned anywhere? Me and my husband spent a lot of money for a dinner and we had some people already in when that happened and even after speaking with the manager explaining that we have special occasion and I wasn't made clear about their rules about the dress code, they have sent our guests back! We ended up leaving the place and looking for a quick plan B which absolutely spoiled my husband's birthday mood. I find that very unprofessional and I strongly recommend DON'T organise parties there, if they don't like someone's appearance and don't let the guests in, the whole event will be spoiled!
