Tsunami Clapham

A fresh and contemporary Japanese eatery in Clapham, you just know that Tsunami's sushi game is going to be strong. Make yourself at home in an airy space filled with Oriental trinkets and scan your eyes over the dedicated sushi section; the avocado and cucumber, shrimp tempura and scallop and smelt egg rolls would be great place to start. So mad are Tsunami for the delicacy, they even run special Sushi Masterclass sessions for small groups.

Sushi Samba

Sushi Samba is definitely worth the visit thanks to the views alone. Towering 39 floors above the city, ceiling to floor glass windows permit sweeping views of London at large. When you're not staring out of the window in awe, you'll enjoy a spread of Japanese wagyu and samba rolls, with Brazilian and Peruvian influences never far from the surface.
