A couple of weeks ago I finally went to Sushi Samba at the Heron Tower in London. It’s somewhere I’ve been desperate to get a reservation for ages and it was totally worth the wait.
As we whizzed up in the lift to the 38th floor (complete with ears popping) the views over the city were amazing. We were lucky to have a clear day and table right by the window looking out towards The Shard.
Despite our early table booking (5.45pm) the restaurant was already buzzing, we were seated in the main dining room with its unique bamboo ceiling and panoramic views across the city. I often think there’s no better view than London at night.
We opted to start with the Sambitini of the day which was really light and refreshing and tucked into some grilled padron peppers and edamame beans with rock salt and lime.
We kept it simple with the sushi and had the Samba London rolls which was a mix of crab, tuna, salmon and white fish. We also added some Tiger Maki rolls and Tokyo Sky Tree. All were melt in the mouth incredible.
Dining at Sushi Samba was a fabulous experience, but not one I could do very often purely because it is a little on the pricey side. But, I will be back!
