Last Friday we went with a couple of friends from Etc Venues Dexter House to the SushiSamba restaurant. It was a great choice.
If you want to experience great food, SushiSamba restaurant is definitely the right choice. It delivers a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, culture, music and striking design to the City of London. The location features the highest outdoor dining terraces in Europe, offering unparalleled, 360 degree views of the City .Located on the 38th and 39th floors.
