Critic Reviews

It's rare to retain New York cred after half a decade, but Sushi Samba continues to pack 'em in, thanks to top-notch cocktails and an innovative menu...

Another clubaurant, Sushi Samba 7 pumps up the beats and pumps out the mediocre "fusion" food - I think it's supposed to be Brazilian and Japanese? The food was better a few years ago but it has started tasting kind of plasticky. I haven't been there in a while because the last time I went it was a Sunday night and they were blaring music for the ten people who were dining and I noticed that they had raised their prices. Sushi Samba would be a good place to bring an out of towner who is easily impressed by a pseudo-scene -- and I don't mean that in a negative way necessarily; it's an easy, last minute fix if you don't have the time to research anywhere else.

the sushi is overpriced for the quality. the obnoxious format of the restaurant works better in miami than nyc. if you're yearning for a serene omakase at the sushi bar, book your res elsewhere.

The reviews above are correct. It's a faux trendy scene, but for some reason, we enjoyed ourselves the two times we came. I did not have the sushi, but rather one of their Peruvian/Japanese hybrids. Yes, it's a place to bring relatives from out of town.
