I waited for Miss Posh… always hard for me to wait for the other person so I took a picture of the lights.

Finally she came… And we pretty much ordered our food a few minutes later plus a couple of cocktails (one was non-alcoholic and the alcoholic one was for me). I had the Eastern G and Tea, which to me was a “posher version” of gin and tonic. ¬,¬” (One of the waiters said they didn’t do G&T’s as cocktails… I guess I proved him wrong when I said “what’s this drink?”…). Can’t remember the name of Miss Posh’s cocktail.
The food came out plate by plate. So first we had the Mini Kobe Beef Burger which is £6 each. It is I believe Kobe beef imported from Japan, as I’ve heard that restaurants serving Kobe beef around the world do not really Kobe beef. This was a little different. It didn’t have that British beefiness in it. Quite succulent with the juices. Light in taste and it wasn’t heavily seasoned. It was a good burger but too bad it had to be small.
Miss Posh’s lamb chops came out and these were probably the best lamb chops I have ever tasted. It was cooked at medium-rare, so it wasn’t too bloody and chewable. The sauce was sweet and it just went well with the lamb. Oh. I could eat more of this! Maybe this should have come out last…

And lastly the sushi came out. We weren’t told both of our sushi rolls were on the same slab. Miss Posh had the had the Samba London (the one in red), thankfully I only had one piece otherwise Miss Posh would’ve cut my throat. ¬,¬”” I had the Tiger Maki which had a fresh prawn inside. ^_^ I think the Head Waiter was a little disappointed in his staff for not telling us… but don’t panic, it’s just human error. I don’t like perfect restaurants anyway!! Sushi was tasty, but not spectacular. Let’s just say I have had better.
– Polite service (although you can spot some staff who have a little attitude)
– Lamb chops and Kobe beef were excellent – I actually recommend the lamb chops
– Sushi was a bit disappointing although decorated very nicely
