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.

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

A little table tucked in the corner was the ideal setting for great food and company! Staff were very pleasant and service was faultless. Great, diverse menu and all food cooked and presented to perfection!

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

My partner and I went here on the last night of our trip, we had a set menu and some extra sushi. The food and service was good, but its a bit pricey, but most things in Iceland are. The food was fresh and well presented.

“A very nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

For some reason or reservation had gotten lost, but the staff was excellent in resolving the issue and making us feeling comfortable while waiting for a table. The drinks were great and the food was good. Small courses and excellent sushi.

“nice sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

l liked their avocado sushi, you could feel that everything was freshly made, the staff is very helpful and the place looks cool.
Tables are too small, we had to put some of our food on the other table, a bit too dark, but cosy.

It was a nice experience.

“Exceptional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

I am not much of a Sushi person but Sushi Samba truly know how to satisfy your taste buds. I would really reccomend doing the Omakase menu´s, excellent value for your money and really filling.
