Seeing their smiles after enjoying our food and service is incredibly fulfilling. This passion motivates me daily, inspiring me to pursue excellence in hospitality,” he says. 

“Among the notable milestones is my tenure with renowned establishments including: CUT by Wolfgang Puck, Folly by Nick and Scott, and the prestigious Jumeirah Group which further solidified my commitment to excellence in every endeavour, and led me to my current General Manager position of the internationally acclaimed SUSHISAMBA restaurant,” says Mr. Radosavljevic. 

SUSHISAMBA has a stellar reputation across the UK, US, UAE and Qatar, and is now bringing its vibrant atmosphere and tantalising flavours to the Kingdom. “Bahrain is an incredibly interesting, diverse country, bustling with culture, hospitality, and business commerce, which makes it a perfect location and natural fit for SUSHISAMBA, further enhancing the brand’s success in the region,” he says. 

When asked what sets SUSHISAMBA apart from other restaurants in the Kingdom, he says: “SUSHISAMBA brings a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian, and Peruvian culture and cuisine to Bahrain, that has made the brand a success for over 20 years. The restaurant features a stunning design, bar, terrace, and pool with 360-degree views of the Manama seafront, Bahrain Bay and the city, offering a truly unique experience.”  

“SUSHISAMBA Bahrain offers a vibrant and energetic atmosphere that takes guests from the social scene at the bar to the intimacy of a dining room to our renowned outdoor spaces boasting stunning panoramic views, complemented by amazing DJs. It’s a truly immersive experience – one that is expected to further elevate Bahrain’s dining scene,” he adds.
