Food was delicious - highly recommend the lamb and beef. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Brilliant entertainment - well worth the $49 for the whole package.

Service was good, show was entertaining. Food was in abundance, with a good variety if you like meat, best stear clear if you are vegetarian. Maybe a little bit pricey, but it was an enjoyable night.

I have been to Samba twice now, once with my partner and again last weekend with my family for my sisters birthday; we all enjoyed both! If you're going to compare it to well known established Brazillian restaurants (such as Braza) you might be disappointed...More
