“Average sushi, very disappointed”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We wanted to have sushi in Miami Beach and on Lincoln Road, we wanted to try Sushi Samba. Our waiter explained us that this is a fusion restaurant, a mix of Brazil and Japan. We ordered Edamame, Dragon Rolls and another sushi roll with Salmon.

First time in my life, our sushi was full with fish bones, which spoiled our food and it was not ok, to take all the bones out from our mouths. I called the waiter and showed him the bones. I expected an apology or at least some compensation. But he said, he will inform the chef. So we paid around $55 for this average sushi. I would not recommend this place, there are better places on Lincoln Road.

“You have to come here”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Out of the ordinary sushi and rolls with great flavours. Service was quick and the food was amazing. Depending on what you get, the average cost is $6-8, a serving good for 1 person, not really for sharing. Would definitely come back, highly recommended

“Good Late Night - Best service on Lincoln”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

I've been several times, lunch was very unimpressive. But went back for late night dinner and it was excellent. The server was very knowledgeable (and sold it well) and took great care of us. Yellowtail tacos are delicious!

“good sushi !”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

we were walking past and fancied sushi and we were not disappointed .. we were well advised by our waitress on the menu choices and loved all the dishes we tried ..

we sat outside which isn't anything special, but it was sunny so we were happy ..

we came away satisfied, good food and service and all at a reasonable price ..

“Bad service”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

It was lunchTime tOday. We sat at a table outside. We were given menus . OK . We waited 10 minutes . The restaurant was not busy at all. No service. I flagged the waiter. He ignored us and then asked another waitress to take our order. she shrugged. We waited again. Eventually we got up and left. The food is pretty good at this restaurant but they have a seriously bad service system. They need to address this issue because they will lose customers . This was the second time I was at this restaurant. I won't bother again.
