If you are not a history or say even geography buff, chances are that you’re likely to view quizzically the eclectic menu at this Insta-worthy Dubai restaurant that melds Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisines.
Located on the 51st floor of St Regis Dubai, at The Palm, SushiSamba offers up a birds-eye view of the playground of the rich and the socially famous uber residents of this city from your stylish perch. Equal parts sleek and equal parts luscious, the restaurant’s eye-catchy 3D printed ceiling installation, inspired by Japanese and Brazilian weaving tradition, engulfs one with a canopy-like warmth.
The same warmth we’d have liked to say bounced off the staff as well – our personal server Alejandro putting us at ease by rattling off his favourite dishes from the multi-dimensional menu so glibly we knew we were in safe gastronomic hands.
In a city that glibly markets its panoramic views from varying heights to tourists and residents alike, suffice to say SushiSamba enjoys an elevated position. And when you have had your fill of the 360-degree view of sun, sand and surf (all of which you can feast on from your vantage spot) you turn to the menu. Which is as compact and yet diverse as the global eatery, which boasts outposts in London and Las Vegas.
