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.

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

Booked a table. Arrived and treated as though we should be grateful to be eating here. Despite booking a table, we were told to go upstairs and wait upstairs at the bar for a table. Upstairs, half the tables were empty and remained empty for the 3 hours we were there. Barmen knew nothing about the selection of sake they... More

I've been to this Sushi Samba twice now - once about two years ago with my boyfriend, and once this past weekend with a girlfriend. I'd have to say that both times were unremarkable. Luckily, this place is graced with the outdoor presence of the West Village neighborhood and trendy folks roaming around. If it weren't for the eye candy,... More

We asked if the dishes were for two people because the prices did not seem to match the description of the dishes.. the calamares was great, very tasteful, however the rolls were tastless. we were expecting...

If you love sushi with a twist you have to visit this restaurant. The food is super fresh. The cocktails are yummy ( my wife's words not mine ). Also our server Francisco was very friendly, very knowledgable about the food and cocktails.

We were in town for a couple of days and some friends recommeded this place. We booked online without any trouble and we recieved great service and the food was excellent. A bit confusing menu but the staff were glad to answer any questions. Don't forget to bring tip to the toilets though, you'll see why.

We are enjoying very much London restaurant and were very excited to visit NYC local. Food was not bad, which is very far from amazing culinary experience that is waiting for you in Europe. Restaurant is nice but I would say it is more local fusion type than stunning interiors we were expecting after London experience. Desert was very good... More
