This would be such a great place if they'd hire nice staff at the bar with the tree... We were waiting for 30 mins until decided to complain to the hostess who spoke with one of the bartenders to serve us immediately. Thank you for that, really! One of the bartenders was wearing sunglasses: SERIOUSLY? I am paying £15 + 12.5% service charge per cocktail for this treatment? I would advise people to avoid the bar at all cost. It looks pretty but the guys behind the bars were soooo slow, so not giving a s**t about any costumer. Why would I want to go there again?
The restaurant: TOTALLY DIFFERENT STORY. We were served by a Brazilian lovely man, and he even got the kitchen to write Happy Anniversary on our desert plate. If it wasn't for this nice waiter and the AMAZING FOOD, this would have been a ruined evening at SushiSamba, which is not cheap, trust me.
The view is also very lovely and it's worth going to Sushi Samba rather than the Shard :)
