Not cheap, not cheap at all, but I don’t think far off value for what had been a very enjoyable meal with one of the best views in London. And so for top quality South-American-Japanese fusion food, served with pride and skill, in London’s 2nd-highest dining room, you can’t do any better…

Among the small plates, the rock shrimp tempura tasted great, though it was a tad soggy. I thought I’d better order some vegetables so I got wild mushrooms from the Robata and they were full of flavor, thanks in part to the yuzu soy they come with…

Sasa samba roll: I’ve never met a shrimp tempura roll I don’t like but using quinoa instead of rice is as dimwitted as it sounds. Special sushi, ie accessorised with extra salty, vinegary foofery, loses sight of the fish, and costs between £4 and £6 each. Yes, not for two: each. We’ve stuck to small plates, had a couple of cocktails, no wine or sake and our bill comes to £160…

Sushisamba is a blast, with adventurous dishes and bright, fun design that can only be eclipsed by its eyrie-like views. But if you can afford the Christian Louboutins or statement watches that many of the conspicuously wealthy here choose to flash, then maybe £150 or more for dinner for two doesn’t seem too dear after all…

As an accompaniment to the drinks when they finally arrived, green bean tempura with black truffle aioli were faultlessly deep-fried but the presence of truffle in the dip was, how shall we say, fugitive. Tuna tataki and yellowtail tiradito exhibited no intrinsic flavour and the mouth feel of the raw fish was flaccid and sulky…

Fortunate, then, that people don’t read our reviews for blow-by-blow accounts of the food. Suffice it to say, our best dish was a mixed ceviche, prettily presented too. The least exciting was a South American version of the dish which in Morocco they call pastilla (and which, in Cornwall, where it’s done on a larger scale, is traditionally described as a ‘pasty’)…
