Description: Only at SUSHISAMBA will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design. Inspired by early 20th century interactions in South America between these cultures, SUSHISAMBA serves traditional dishes, plus more inventive fare. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches have found a place at the table alongside simple miso soup and tender sashimi. Innovative creations such as Sashimi Seviche, Tuna Tataki and our South American Beef Maki Roll are also on the menu, as are our creative signature cocktails.

yummy yummy yummy!!!! Great food, quick, friendly service, lovely decor. Food is presented very nicely and absolutely delicious. Loved the edamame appetizer. The dragon roll was supreme. Cocktail of the day was extra delicious. My new fave place for sushi!!! If you're in NYC looking for sushi, don't miss this.

I like coming to Sushi Samba...the food is great and service as well. I have tried almost everything on the menu and I have no bad reviews. The desserts are also good. If you go on Fridays and Saturdays it tends to be a little crowded and hard to get a table without reservation. Do try to call ahead so... More

I loved the Asian/Brazilian fusion. I came with two friends for a late lunch. The service was great and i enjoed trying something new and different. Definitely a place to see and to be seen. Very enjoyable experience. The only part I didn't like was too loud music but everything else was impeccable.

Still love it. Because they prepare the cheviche fantastically and those very special sushis. Came very late at night after our flight to NYC. Service impeccable, ambience a little cold and plasticky. Anyway each time we are in NYC or in Miami we always head to..

I call this a "tourist sushi" experience as it feels like colorful fluorescent lighting when it comes to ambience and loud music. Semi-attentive service. The sushi is very generic. We liked the edamame but not so much the sushi.

After a long day and a cold city we stopped to have dinner with my wife and kids and also my wife cousin who lives in the area. The food was very good but pricy my only complaint is the desert which wasn't very good.

The location of Sushi Samba is a no brainer - it's in the center of where you want to be on the weekends. And they've managed to stay there for quite a while, which is great! A job well done. I saw some negative comments about the decor, and I do not agree with these at all. I think it... More
