My friend managed to get a table booking for Sushi Samba for early dinner. It’s on our eat our way through London list, so we had to to it.
The restaurant and bar is at the top of Heron Tower on Bishopsgate. The glass lift at the ground floor whisks you up to the 38th floor in less time then a sentence, I think it’s about 30 secs. The view from the lift as you ascend is pretty spectacular. When the door opens, you arrive into a little foyer and walk round the corner to enter the bar and sushi bar which opens out to the terrace on one side and there’s stairs to take you up another few floors. I went straight into the dining area because I was slightly late. I was shown to the table where I joined my friends. The space is huge with high ceilings that have kind of vaulted criss cross wood beams and pendent lights that look like stars. The restaurant is enclosed with glass on 3 sides so there is almost an unobstructed view of London whilst you dine.
