I've heard good things about the London restaurant, so when we were searching for a local Sunday night option in west village that was potentially mid-ish range and easy to get in to we jumped at the chance. In the end it didn't hugely deliver for the price. The food quality was fine and there were some interesting dishes with... More

My daughter had read about this place online before our last trip to NYC so she insisted we'd go. We are both sushi lovers, and although we do have our favorite sushi spots in the city already, I'm always open to try something new, you never know if you come across a new favorite? This was not one of those... More

I went there twice and I tried different dishes. It is really good and the environment is buzzing! Love it! Last time I tried the MOQUECA MISTA and I was surprised!

I still don't understand the mix but they really do have caipirinha with real Brazilian cachaça. Liked and will be back to for dinner another day. They have muqueca in the menu. I need to try.

Being London Sushi Samba fans we thought we would give this a try. The ambiance is slightly off putting with loud music and not so great decor. The cocktails were good, and the more novel sushi creations delicious. The only downside - no ceviches!

Sushi was just average for the high prices. We also had the Cuban mixed grill which was also expensive but enough to share. Probably will not go back

Had dinner with a few work mates and enjoyed soooo much the experience! The food was fantastic and the service pretty good too, I would recommend it for a date, business or just to go with friends, just be aware that is quite expensive.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
