A word from SUSHISAMBA NYC West Village
Only at SUSHISAMBA will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design. 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
  • "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."

  • "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?"

  • "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!"

  • "The service has certainly slacked off. Super polite, but not useful. There are only so many times I can be greeted before it seems court-ordered and insincere. But then asking for help with the rather convoluted menu seemed too much to ask of our server. Way over priced (ASK the price before ordering the specials!) and cocktails are the usual $15 fancy sweet nothings a high school girl might throw together. Certainly no innovation at the bar. Enjoyable, but this was probably my last visit."

  • "This restaurant is fabulous. Very friendly wait staff, excellent food, and extremely interesting sushi rolls. Never fails to impress me!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The food is outstanding and the wait staff knowledgeable. The one problem I had was that the music is pumped through so loud that I could not hear what the waitress was saying. The mixed drinks were delicious and a man came by to ask if I needed more hot water for my green tea and kept filling up the iced water glasses. It's a bit expensive so I would definitely classify it as a special occasion fun place."

  • "Our server was fabulous and encouraged us to try some of the different sushi rolls that SushiSamba is noted for. So glad that we took his advice! They were fabulous and it was great to get away from ordering our usual rolls. Would go back for sure!"

  • "Went here for a weekday business lunch, which my colleague and I enjoyed thoroughly. We started off with their sea salt edamame and homemade iced tea, which was absolutely delicious. We then shared the anticuchos Organic Chicken with Peruvian corn, which was amazing. I got the Waguy Sliders and my colleague got the Kari Kari Rolls. Again, the flavors and preparation were outstanding -- as was the service from our waitress Alice. We will definitely go back again hopefully to enjoy the rooftop dining and drinks on Thurs-Sat."

  • "We decided on the tasting menu and couldnt have asked for a better experience. The waitress made sure she covered any allergies within the group before she made the selection and she nailed each and every one of them. Great experience!"

  • "We were in town for a couple of days and some friends recommeded this place. We booked online without any trouble and we recieved great service and the food was excellent. A bit on the noisy side and the menu was a bit confusing but the staff were glad to answer any questions. Don't forget to bring tip to the toilets though, you'll see why. "

  • "Wow. From start to finish, what a meal. Our waitress was awesome, and extremely knowledgeable. Ordered the tuna sashimi....and spent a half hour trying to figure out if I could recreate the sauce. Delicious. The octopus...amazing. Lobster tacos...amazing. The sushi roll we ordered was covered in mozzarella cheese and had crispy onions and oh my god it was the most delectable thing I ever ate. Hands down best sushi roll. Hit up most of the cocktail list, the watermelon baja being a standout as well as a few others. My fiancé had a bottle of sake that she said was amazing. Sat upstairs on a gorgeous sunny day on outside patio. Loved. Amazing and will definitely return!!"

  • "I have been to this restaurant many times before and enjoyed it but this time was disappointing. The food wasn't great. The sushi was poorly constructed but tasted okay. The service was lousy. They were having issues with their lights so the lights kept going from really bright to completely off as they played with it. Overall, it was a disappointing experience and I don't expect to be back there. "

  • "My wife and I have been several times and had both amazing sushi and service. However, this time service was lacking. Maybe our attendant had too many tables? Who knows. Hopefully next time we get lucky with service as well as prior visits. "

  • "SS NYC is a casual, noisy place and felt more like a bar. Service was only fair-repeatedly having trouble catching a waiter (and it wasn't busy). The sushi rolls, eggplant skewers and banana pudding were great. Meat main with rib-eye, Waygu beef and chorizo was good quality but pricey. Mid-tier place with a top tier price - some nice food options but overall disappointed. No comparison to the London Sushi Samba which was outstanding."

  • "I love it here I think that it's one of the best places to go in NYC.The ambiance is so fun and it really has a nice feeling to it which is really important. The decor is awesome, it seems like there is always something to look at with the decor and it's great to people watch!You can come here on a date or for a fun dinner with your friends! The service and food are always on point. Definitely get the Sea bass skewers and the dumplings for apps. Try the Nina fresca for a drink to it's so good!! It's expensive but it's NYC and you get what you pay for. The food and drinks are always amazing! The hosts servers bartenders and managers are always so friendly and on top of the restaurant. I have been here over 20 times which says a lot. "

Service was a bit lax though, we waited for things at moments...it wasnt crowded. they forgot to bring us our leftovers...lol...love the classic desserts we got from the Mother's Day menu BUt I do like it there and would def go back...we all enjoyed overall.."

  • "The food is excellent and the service wonderful. What surprised me is how kid friendly the restaurant was! I had previously been to the restaurant and when I booked hoped they would be able to accommodate my child. To my surprise they not only had a kids menu and even provided kid chopsticks. It was a wonderful night out for Mother's Day!"

  • "The food was great, as usual. I have visited Sushi Samba in Grammercy and Vegas, this was my first time to this location. Unfortunately it was EXTREMELY rushed. I understand efficiency but this was oer the top. We felt like the waitstaff did not leave us alone for a second to chat and we felt like they were pushing us out the door. They were completely in your face. Appetizers, main course and dessert were done in 50 minutes. Food was great but the rushed service ruined our night out. Won't be going back to this location."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Music by D.J. maybe considered by some as high energy by some was rated loud, monotonous and irritating by all in our party. Sushi ranged from ordinary to mushy."

  • "I've made about 50 res on Open Table, this was the first that didnt honor the reservation, and they called me to confirm. Waited over a half hour. The food is good but not much to choose from. Realized after I paid and left that they didn't bring us a $17 plate. So loud you cant hear yourself think."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Sushi Samba is a great spot for a group outing, especially for a louder celebration like a birthday. Everything is shared between members of the group, and the environment is best for getting dressed up and enjoying drinks and sushi with friends."

  • "The food was fine; nothing special. The doors were open so we dined with traffic noise, exhaust smells, etc... We're not from the city, so maybe that's why we didn't appreciate that. The ceiling was beautiful. "

  • "We had an 8pm reservation, were told they were running a little late. After asking twice for an update we got seated at 9:20pm! The food was good but not worth the wait/delay/buzz. Very disappointed."

  • "We went with friends from out of town and enjoyed the food and ambiance. Our waiter was excellent and when we weren't sure what we wanted to try he surprised us. His choices were excellent. He also made sure to guide us on how to order. We would definitely recommend this for fun and friends A good server makes a difference. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Sushi Samba is loud. Not necessarily in a bad way, because the music is produced from a DJ on the first level of the restaurant. If you want a slightly quieter table, request to sit on the second level. Our night started out poorly, as we arrived on time for our reservation and were told to wait. I was initially disappointed. However, after being seated 15 minutes after our reservation time, the manager brought us a complimentary drinks for the table. This definitely changed our moods and we started to have a good time. The night ended very well. We opted for the tasting menu and our waitress really impressed us with her choices. I left satisfied and had a great time. I would go back."

  • "Great restaurang with a just wonderful designed interior. Some tables are a little small and are placed right in the "highway" of other guests and waiters running back and forth. Food is just delicious! Perfection! Service could be friendlier and feels a bit stressed and forced. Drinks are a must and totally worth the cash and wait! Overall it was a fantastic night!"

  • "The food is an awesome mix of Japanese and Peruvian food. Excellent presentation and even more excellent is the taste. The atmosphere is fun and vibrant. It is my go to spot every time I am in New York City. I have never received poor service. Staff friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Highly recommended!"

If you like sushi in a twist and haven't got a problem with some noise, good loungemusic and a very relax feeling this is a perfect place to go to and be suprised! Try out the chef's selection and get a little bit of everything."

Tuna Tataki, Yellow Tail Sashimi Seviche and Moqueca Mista not to be missed. Service was very friendly and attentive. Kept the wine flowing. Thank you! Important to note - music was loud at times. If you are looking for a quiet dinner, this may not be for you."
