  • Best Sushi in South Beach

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    I love Sushi Samba! The ceviche sampler is the best. The flavor combinations are amazing. All of the sushi is so fresh and amazing. The tempura green beans with truffle aioli are also really good. The caiprahina's are so good here. The service is always great and it's fun to sit outside and people watch. We always have dinner at Sushi Samba when we are in South Beach.

    Some of the best service I've had in a long time. Between handling the eaten edamame, refilling water, asking how things were tasting, they always had an eye on our table. Took care of us very well.

    Excellent restaurant and concept. Food was delicious... Fantastic cocktails... The Dj playing encouraged you to stay longer for food and cocktails! The 2 female bartenders, one from Berlin, the other from Ukraine were 2 of the best bartenders I've met for making interesting cocktails and martinis... We went back 3 times during our stay... Highly recommend!

    Was there with out of town guests during Labor Day weekend. Luckily we had a reservation because it was packed and lively. We were sat immediately at an indoor table by the bar. However, our table was right under a music speaker. Our proximity to the speaker made it hard to have a conversation. But the atmosphere made it fun. It was not hard to overlook because the service was great. Our waitress was very friendly and made great suggestions. The backup staff was super quick to clear our tapas plates and replace with clean ones. They did that all night and I was very impressed. Overall, it was a fun dinner. My NY guest liked it better than the NYC location .The food came out promptly. The prices were fair and the cocktails were yummy.

    Sushi Samba could just ride on its prime location on Lincoln Road or trendy interior design. What keeps us coming back is the food--it's consistently good and is varied enough to satisfy traditional eaters as well as foodies. We'll be there the next time we go to South Beach.

    This isn't your little hole in the wall sushi place. Its a large scale chain. Its busy & bustling. It has small stools and tables, and a large open restaurant. Ive frequented the Sushi Samba in Las Vegas many times, and always had a great experience. This one is no different. Good sushi, good drinks, and a great place to have a great time. But just know its not your mom and pop sushi place, so if you are looking for some kind of crazy unique, or cheap cuisine, this isnt it.

    Dined on 7/13/2014
    I have been to other Sushi Samba restaurants, and this one was the worst! We sat outside, which would usually be acceptable, except this time we sucked down the second hand smoke of a chain smoker at the next table over. Our meal took over 2 hours. The rolls were tiny and we had to order more, which meant waiting twice for food. The drinks were over priced and weak. Our bill was wrong. Except for the company of our family, which was delightful, the rest of our experience at Sushi Samba in Miami Beach was awful. We will not return, ever.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/20/2014
    I've been to Both the New York and Las Vegas locations of this restaurant and the Miami Beach location just doesn't compare. The food was fine and the service was ok, but the restaurant was really dirty and not well kept. There was duct tape holding my booth together. The plates and bowls had chips and cracks. The tables and floors were dirty and sticky. When I spend $100+ on a meal, I have an expectation that, at the very least, I am going to get a clean glass.

    My Wife And I Went To Miami For Our 4 Year Wedding Anniversary. We Went To Sushi Samba For Our Anniversary Dinner. I Thought It Would Be A Nice Change From The Norm. Our Waitress Was Yvonne And She Was By Far One Of The Best Servers We Have Had. Not Only Was She Knowledgeable About The Menu, But She Was Very Helpful, Friendly, And Kind. Yvonne Definately Made Our Experience Memorable. The Scenery Was Beautiful, Food Eclectic, And The Atmosphere Was Bar None!!!
