One of my favorite restaurants.
One of my favorite restaurants. Definitely my favorite in Miami. Haven't tried Azul yet but looking forward to it. Also at Msbdarin Oriental which is an experience in itself.

I was tempted to leave this
I was tempted to leave this restaurant upon being seated as I was expecting a different venue. It seemed to be a secondary restaurant at the beautiful Oriental Mandarin in Miami. I certainly was HAPPY that I decided to remain. The service was absolutely the best I had experienced on my recent trip to Miami and the Food was amazing! I have never been so surprised. We stayed for three hours and the staff was happy to let us remain and take our time between courses, which allowed us to really enjoy the fabulous food. I have been telling everyone about this gem.

Great place. Service and food
Great place. Service and food were great. My boyfriend had asked for Sangria which was not on the menu, they took it upon themselves to make it for him. They excused themselves a few times for the wait since they had never gotten such a request before. However, once they brought it out, I had a sip and it tasted delicious! I will definitely go again!

Super Supper and Amazing Ambiance !
Loved this terrace. View of the Miami skyline close up. Terrace is ON the bay. Food is clean, delicious, creative, with an asian-fusion style. Those that love sushi will find a good selection to choose from too. I had artic char, one of my favorite fishes, served in my own requested style rather than the house preparation which sounded delicious but too caloric for my preference. Husband had a wok-prepared steak dish which he said was amazingly delicious. The MARGARITAs were sublime. Delicate and fruity. I'd go here just for the view and the margaritas. Really lovely evening.

You can´t go wrong if you choose Cafe Sambal for any occasion.

I cannot remember the last time we were in a restaurant where the staff made such an effort to ensure everything was perfect--and it was!

Went to Cafe Sambal while visiting the hotel to see the Spanish National Soccer Team. I quickly forgot about the team once the food arrived. Delicious food and good portions. The wine list was solid. The service was very good. The ambiance was perfect, beautiful skyline, especially at dusk to evening with a nice breeze. Wish it wouldn't have been as expensive, but good food and good service like we had are worth it.

Outstanding Mandarin Service
It should be no surprise that a dining establishment in a Mandarin Oriental Hotel would offer nothing short of the highest standard of service that is part of this hotel group's brand. Sambal is the Miami Mandarin's "second" restaurant, situated beautifully overlooking Biscayne Bay, with outdoor tables spaced far enough apart to offer privacy. The Asian-inspired fare is quite good, but it is the attentive, personal, though not intrusive, service that stands out. The staf is trained to the highest standards of service, a level which one seldom encounters in even the highest rated establishments.

Great Anniversary Dinner
My wife and I had a great experience at Cafe Sambal. It was a special occasion for us, it was very intimate and romantic. Do not let me forget and say the food was quite amazing, loved the Teriyaki Kobe Skirt Steak over mashed potatoes. The attention we received there was exceptional as well, was never left alone more than 5 minutes.
