Summary

“The lift up is a little scary” (in a good way), but the payoff is the “breathtaking view” from this “trendy-but-tasteful” venue on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower (adjacent to Sushisamba): a natural choice both for a business or romantic occasion. Most – but not all – reporters feel its slightly wacky menu (the restaurant being named for its signature dish) is “well conceived” and – aided by the fact that it’s open 24/7 – the place is particularly popular for its “sophisticated and interesting breakfast dishes”.

Summary

“The view is jaw-dropping” on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower (next to Sushi Samba) – “an ideal date spot” that’s “worth it for the lift-ride alone” (the fastest in western Europe). “No doubt this is factored into the bill”, but most reporters feel it’s “not overpriced” all-things-considered. Some of the combinations on its meaty, calorie-laden menu sound “insane”, and views divide on the end-result: “unusual and delicious” in most cases, but “really awful” in a few. Brunch is the best bet.

Summary

“You are admittedly paying for the astonishing views”, at this arguably “completely over-priced”, 24/7 neighbour to SushiSamba, on the 40th-floor of the Heron Tower. No one disputes the “wow factor” though, and many reports are surprisingly complimentary regarding its “chunky, meaty fashionable food and sharing plates”, including “the eponymous signature dish”. Top Tip – “really delicious breakfast”. (Coming soon: a second branch is set to open in late 2016 in the new St James’s Market development).

Summary

“Go mainly for the extraordinary views” to this 24/7, 40th-floor hang out; “the signature dish (confit duck with a fried egg, waffle and syrup) is better than it sounds”, but opinions are mixed on the “mainly meaty, high cholesterol” fare and you pay “City boys’ drinks prices”. Maybe try breakfast or coffee.
