Sushi Samba Restaurant London

Sushi Samba Restaurant London


Located on the 38th and 39th floors of the Heron Tower is Sushi Samba City. It is a natural oasis iconic for its intercontinental fusion of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine. Sushi Samba restaurant London boasts the highest outdoor dining terrace in Europe and this symbolises its earth-to-sky motif. With its floor-to-ceiling windows, guests experience unparalleled 360 degree city views. A natural and relaxed ambience is also evoked from its bamboo latticed ceiling draped in hanging lights and living plants and flowers.

Sushi Samba has two outposts in London including its City and Covent Garden restaurants, as well as international sites in Miami, Las Vegas and Amsterdam. Its success stems from its unique blend of cuisines and interiors. The interiors are evocative of Brazil’s annual Carnaval celebration. Guests can expect to walk into a space brightly lit with its signature colours of mango, red, lime and gold. Each of the colours work together to create a uniquely rose tinted glow that transitions from day into night.

Sushi Samba City offers a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian culture and cuisine to be reminiscent of bustling cities like Sao Paulo where the assimilation of these cultures blossom. They have a variety of menus including their all day, gluten, vegan, Taste of Samba, and Samba set. The Taste of Samba is available for £82 per person and encompasses signature dishes. The all day menu includes starters of miso soup, and green bean tempura. Small plates can also be ordered as starters or as mains to be shared between a group. Our favourites included the shrimp tempura which is elevated with its snap pea julienne, spicy mayo and black truffle vinaigrette. Crispy taquitos are also an excellent small plate to share between two people. One of our favourites was the yellowtail made with avocado and roasted corn miso. They also have a raw selection which champions their Japanese influence. Their £15 Tuna dish is delicious and comes with pomegranate, maiz morado, wasabi peas and basil. Sushi Samba restaurant London also has a robata section which incorporates fresh ingredients prepared with their traditional Japanese charcoal grill. These dishes can be served as small plates or as Peruvian skewers. Sushi Samba also has a meat section where a delicious £19 lamb chop served with red miso and lime is a highlight. Large plates of rib-eye are also an excellent choice. The perfect dish for a big celebration is the £129 Japanese wagyu ishiyaki. It requires 48 hours notice and is one of the highest quality Kobe beefs extravagantly served from a steaming hot stone with dipping sauces and pickled plums.

The sushi bar is the focal point of Sushi Samba and crafts some of London’s most creative and delicious cocktails. We recommend starting with their £14 Samba Sour which is their modern twist on a traditional Pisco Sour. What makes this special is that it also incorporates a Japanese influence with its shaken citrus and egg whites. Another must-try is their £13 Kaffirinha. This cocktail is a twist on a Brazilian Classic with its fragant kaffir lime leaves infused with Velho Barreiro cachaca, lime and sugar. If cocktails do not tickle your fancy, Sushi Samba restaurant London also has an extensive wine and sake list to enjoy whilst soaking up either the sun or stars on their two outside terraces.

Sushi Samba is one of the best fusion restaurants in the City. It does not only combine Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine effortlessly, but also illustrates this integration in its design, music and culture. It exudes the utmost sophistication and class and should be counted on as a top choice for any celebration.
