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.

“An exciting treat for your palate.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

I visited this restaurant with my girlfriend about one year ago and liked what they offered. This year I traveled with my mother and I chose to return to Sushi Samba. We had one of the tasting menus and were not disappointed. The menu was well composed and an interesting combination of well-known flavors and new experiences. The service at the restaurant is really good but not extraordinary. The overall experience makes me want to return again for more excellent food at this interesting restaurant.

“It's ok and have to agree sushi is certainly different....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Came here first night as was right next to our hotel. It's kind of ok. The sushi is certainly not the best ever had as some reviews say, and some is a bit odd as the sushi was deep fired. Didn;t get this whole samba/sushi thing to be honest. You won;t regret coming here. Gete the combined menus for a good deal, they do a sushi and a samba one.

“Best Sushi & Service I've had in a long time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

Friends of ours were on vacation in Reykjavik a few weeks fore us and recommended this place. After a long day of site seeing in 18 deg. F, we just wanted a good meal. The dining room was full but the lounge was opened and looked more cozy anyway so I asked if we could be seated there and they obliged. The lighting and couches were perfect and kind of romantic. We ordered 3 rolls and the avocado fries. Everything was amazing.

“Good samba, weird sushi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

It is a good restaurant for the sushi lovers, but I wouldn´t call it an excellent restaurant. The sushi is overly diversified, instead of the traditional one. the "samba" spicy food was good. It was ok to try once, but I don´t think I will be going back there any time soon.

It is a very cozy place and certainly worth trying if you like to try all kinds of sushi.

“Best sushi in the city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Really great food. Ive had sushi all around north america - this was fantastic...but id have to say one of the best shrimp tempura's ive ever had. we tried the whale, the shrimp tempura (which i could have eaten all night), and a variety of sushi and sashimi...all really good. it was busy so make sure you get a reservation.
