Description: Open at the end of 2011 and a hot favorite on the Reykjavik restaurant scene, Sushi Social - samba & grill offers a deliciously unique take on homegrown ingredients, fusing Iceland's freshest flavors with Japanese and South American influences. The menu offers a great selection, tempting smaller courses, traditional and "Juicy- Sushi" , amazing steaks and sweet desserts. If you can't decide what to go for, the Icelandic feast is a perfect solution - six courses form an incredible taste experience that includes the national aperitif 'Brennivin' and an Icelandic Skyr panna cotta for dessert. Fabulous chili mojitos and a gorgeously eclectic interior are the icing on the cake at Sushi Social. Hand- carved Brazilian curios and some 50 pretty Japanese birdcages complement the contemporary lines and gentle feel of the place.

The food here was amazing. I tried the set 5 course menu which was a mix of ceviche, sushi, and red meat with a dessert and glass of prosecco. We eventually ate here 4 times out of our 7 nights in Reykjavik.

I had the SushiSamba combo and it was quite good. It could have been better, expecially the Sushi that didn't meet my expectations.. But it was good.

Sushi Samba makes for an enjoyable dinner experience. The decor has a casual, modern vibe with interesting lighting fixtures and comfortable banquettes or standard table layouts. The music is fairly loud with a good playlist. The serving staff were attentive and friendly. Specialty cocktails are a strong point, and they reflect some of the South American side of the menu. The food also had an interesting blend of Japanese and Spanish/South American tastes and ingredients as well. It's not one of those inexpensive sushi experiences, nor do they offer the best sushi I've ever had but the food is interesting, freshly prepared and very good.

The food is really an experience the sushi with lobster was just a delight, couln't get enough of it... This is the best Sushi restaurant I have ever eaten!
Please do try the bestselling drink.. CHILLY MOJITO... It will awake your senses and make you a fan :)

The atmosphere is amazing! Modern but cosy and really out of the ordinary.. That's what's called thinking outside the box :)

The service is excellent, friendly young staff with a huge smile to greet you. Just gives you the warm feeling and makes you want to come back every night.

I can tell you this... after you go there one time you will understand why SushiSamba is called the best restaurant in reykjavik!

A true delight for the eyes and for the taste!

Will recommend it to everyone!
