Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches are served alongside more inventive dishes, including Tuna Tataki and Wagyu Gyoza. Complementing the menu are signature cocktails made with exotic spirits such as shochu and cachaça and an acclaimed sake list, as well as wine, beer and champagne. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "A great mix of South American flavours with Japanese makes fora surprisingly well balanced delicious exciting meal. Service was fantastic. Just make sure that you leave room for dessert!!"

  • "I simply love this place. I can never get enough! I try to go at least once a week and I am never disappointed. The food is exquisite, the service is friendly and very pleasant and I like sitting outside."

  • "We went for restaurant week and were not disappointed by the food! We started with the cocktail tree (there was a large group of us) and had fantastic cocktails! The food that followed was delicious, very innovative sushi rolls and the skirt steak i ordered was cooked perfectly medium rare! The service dropped off at the end and it took forever for us to pay and move on to the next place, but that was a small hiccup in an overall fantastic meal."

  • "My friend and I ate here during NY Restaurant Week and it was amazing!! I was very impressed with menu offering and things were cooked to perfection. Who knew Brazilian, Peruvian and Japanese food made such a great combo?! And the highlight of our meal was definitely dessert - it was a Chocolate Banana cake with vanilla rum ice cream, garnished with an agave syrup and Plantain crisp. Yum!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "My partner and I decided to give this spot a try on the strength of someone's suggestion for restaurant week. The overall experience was very positive: the food tasted great - especially the salt + pepper squid, ceviche, rock fish, and chocolate banana cake - and the server, Bo, was both professional and attentive."

  • "Just celebrated a very memorable birthday at sushi samba in the west village with sons and had a wonderful evening! Once again sushi samba doesn't disappoint! The service was excellent and the food outstanding! We enjoyed some delicious signature cocktails and dishes. Recommend the refreshing Samba juice cocktail and Our family favorite appetizer Sawagani flashed fried mini Japanese river crabs! Being able to take advantage of nyc restaurant week and the pre fix menu made it even more inviting & affordable! Totally plan to return for samba hour next visit with girl friends!"

  • "Always busy, regardless the night and period of the year. A testament to the great atmosphere, varied menu and great food. Many creative rolls combine meat with fish and spices from for this fusion of Brazilian and Japanese cousine"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "The food is so well prepared and creative and innovative we kept ordering more of their small plates of goodies - and then stayed for dessert. The Rock Shrimp Tempura were so savory/crispy/satisfying that we had two plates. This, despite the fact that we could not hear ourselves think, much less our companions. Yelling over music is not my idea of relaxed dinning! What ever happened to great food AND great conversation?"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "It was empty when I reached the restaurant with a friend visiting the city from Canada. We got there for Samba Hour, which I'd heard of on their website. The employees were not even aware that this special was offered on Sundays. The happy hour drinks used cheap alcohol where they tasted like nail polish remover or something like Georgi was used in them. We didn't even bother ordering drinks when we were seated at our table for dinner."

  • "Sushi was less than 100% fresh, but the rock fish with tangerine slices as garnish was surprisingly refreshing, although there was nothing inherently astonishing about the fish itself. The waiter was energetic and very friendly. At night, the inside of the restaurant is a bit too dim unless you're seated at the sushi bar placed in the center of the venue. There appeared to be some nice outdoor seating for small parties."

  • "We first ate at the SushiSamba in Miami last year and loved it. We are native New Yorkers and this is our first visit to West Village restaurant. The food was awesome and so was the presentation. We started with refreshing sambatini and had the chicharron de calamar and foie gras- wagyu sliders - what a tasty treat. We went for a pre-theater dinner so missed the crowds. Will certainly not be a stranger."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Every time I go to Sushi Samba the experience is simply spectacular. I have been numerous times to this restaurant either for brunch, drinks or dinner and I am always extremely pleased. As a foodie and sushiholic, Sushi Samba is my favorite restaurant in the city and my goal this year ( and hopefully for many years to come) is to try to go at least 3 times every month. The downtown location is particularly nice due to its outdoor seating and great views."

  • "Outstanding Restaurant Week selection. Ceviche, fish, desserts all excellent."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I was extremely disappointed by my lunch here. I came with my boyfriend to treat him to lunch because I went for dinner once and the food was great. Not so for their restaurant week lunch. My sushi entree was kind of sad. The fish did not taste fresh at all and was cut pretty thin. Worst of all, the service was TERRIBLE. They tried to bus our table literally as we were still eating several times and there were a ton of really just careless/fun mistakes with our order and the check. There was hardly anyone else there! It didn't make sense to have service that bad and no one even apologized. Never going back. I could have spent half as much eating at a better place for NOT restaurant week."

  • "Seviche was out of this world. Sushi was pretty good but not the best I've ever had. Dessert is rich and a good size to share. The staff is friendly and polite. The only thing that threw me off was the bathroom upstairs. Sink Knob was broken, no paper towels or hand dryers, water everywhere. Kind of threw me off for a place that had attention to detail. Overall a great experience though and highly recommend!"

  • "We found the restaurant and staff to be very inviting and friendly. The staff was knowledgable about the food and drink. The crab ceviche was very good, the sushi and the organic chicken bento box were very good. One item we ordered, the wagyu beef and foie gras sliders, came out without the foie gras. We brought this to the attention of our server, who apologized for the error and brought the error to the attention of the management who then removed that item from the check. Overall our dining experience was extremely satisfying and we would recommend Sushi Samba without hesitation."

  • "I would happily return here for the great food (love the sushi, cebiche and the drinks), and the colorful, fun atmosphere. You should try it."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "From the moment we arrived everyone was friendly and welcoming. The waiter Solomon explained the menu and offered some options for us to choose. He provided great service by always being friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and there was a great choice. I will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting NYC."

  • "Make sure you try the dragon roll and fried jalapeno peppers rolls."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Really liked it ... I loved the appetizers and the sides ... service was excellent!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "An awesome mix of Brazilian and Japanese, however a bit pricy for what you get. Better to go to a Sushi place if you're looking for real authentic sushi thats better priced"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Big drinking crowd and they really push booze on customers. The food is fun and yummy, though."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Service was excellent, food was fresh and tasty but way overpriced for the portion sizes. I would suggest to anyone do not go there on an empty stomach otherwise you will leave with a whopping Bill! Portions are small and the rolls are smaller that your average sushi rolls. Drinks are nice but watered down. I would do this place again for a quick bite and a light drink with friends, co-workers and or date. They have a nice lounge area too!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The food was a delicious mix of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian. We chose from the Restaurant Week menu and there was enough choices so that the three of us were able to sample three different dishes for each course. We had a window/outdoor table so we got to experience the vibe of the West Village, which made the dining experience even more fun."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Worst 300 dollars I've ever spent. Everyone seemed non attentive, not like park avenue one. I will never attend this restaurant again. Philippe was much better any day of the week."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I was organizing a surprise birthday dinner for my friend. My reservation was at 8:30 and we did not get seated before 10:10 pm and the staff was not helpful at all. I am never going back there again."

  • "Food was great. Excellent service. A great kids menu complete with service in a Tiffanwala and kids chopsticks. Also, great desserts."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I discovered this fantastic spot during Restaurant Week. I was searching for either an Asian or Brazillian restaurant and was happy to see a menu that was a fusion of Japanese, Peruvian and Brazillian cuisines. The atmosphere is vibrant, with colorful original artwork on the walls. The ceviche was perfect, sushi sampler was melt-in-your-mouth fresh and skirt steak cooked to perfection. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a different take on dishes they already love, or to be introduced to something completely fresh."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We frequented the 7th avenue location for several years until they closed, simply because that location was close to work. We tried the West Village location, but their Samba Park menu option was actually Samba Seven. We are so used to the "park" edition, please bring it back!!!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Yellowtail tacos are excellent. Sushi rolls very tasty. Drinks not great and took too long. Great atmosphere upstairs."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The service was a little off, but probably because the restaurant was packed. It took a while to get our drinks and food."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "SushiSAMBA park was one of our favorite manhattan restaurants form several years ago. From our visit to West Village, we learned why likely the Park location closed. Our service was very good but the food was expensive, mediocre, over-done, and under-seasoned. The cocktails overcame cheap liquor with excessive sweetness. The sushi fish was not fresh and the rice was grainy. There is an empty spot in my stomach I will have to find another place to fill."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Perhaps they just added weekend brunch, and the rest of NYC doesn't know about it yet? It wasn't busy at all, and everything was delicious! We had the $30 per person three course meal, and it was a huge amount of food. Lobster eggs benedict, sushi, and a dessert assortment for $30 in NYC? That's a steal, IMHO."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The fish was not fresh and some toppings of the rainbow roll were very little. It was a major dissapointment, especially after wonderful sushi experiences in other Sushi Samba places like Vegas and London. Even the cocktails were horrible. The mojito tasted like water. The service was poor and the waiters lacked enthusiasm. Also the ambience wasn't great. Everyone sits on top of each other and it feels like have dinner in a disco. Overall, an extremely dissapointing experience. This place is not worthy of the Sushi Samba name."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "SushiSamba is by far my favorite restaurant. Both floors are decorated amazingly enough that it could be romantic enough for date night and fun enough for girls night out. The food is absolutely amazing."

  • "We went here for the Brasil vs Colombia football game and it was great. Very busy but still decent service. The wait for drinks was quite a while, but that's to be expected at an event like this when it was so crowded. After the game, the dj upstairs kept the party going with Brasilian music. Great time, lots of fun."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Overall good experience. Server was not very attentive. Never received any refills on our water, and the drinks we ordered with the entrees never arrived. We had to chase down the check so we could go somewhere else to get timely drinks and service. Service is usually better- disappointing as this was an anniversary dinner."

  • "everything was great except the very expensive beef wasn't as good as I remember. The service was great and we had a great table on the second floor balcony. Lots of fun!"

  • "We been here before and for the most part everyone enjoyed the dinner- however being my husband is vegitarian - the options are limited - and yet they had a vegitarian menu :) - sadly tho- when we asked the waitress to ask the chefs to make a specific vegie roll (had many times b4) she said no they couldn't make it - bringing him then the most boring basic roll ever- it was so sad ... we all had the most creative dishes and he had rice and advocodo roll with soy sauce- he's was annoyed to say the least - we asked again if they could make something - and magically it came out of the kitchen- a custom roll with mozzarella cheese and onion crunches - why that couldn't happen the 1st time?"
