After hearing (and reading) about Sushi Samba I couldn't wait to go. Very disappointing. When I pulled out my chair to sit down it was covered in food - no exaggeration. I don't mind flicking off the odd speck, but this was gross! The vegetarian roll was obviously pre-made as it arrived 1 minute after the waiter left. The nori was soggy and the vegetables were different from what we asked for. The rest of the sushi was ordinary at best. The rice was cold and hard and the salmon nigiri had chewy long bits, impossible to bite. One of the rolls had mango substituted for the avocado because the avocado wasn't ripe enough - we were told this after being served the dish!! To add, my soy plate arrived with dried old rice on it! So NOT worth my time or money!

I have eaten in Sushi Samba a lot of times in the past years, the restaurant keeps a high standard of food and we were happy with our evening every time we went there. they have interesting variety of Sushi and you can also get very good meet & sea food. prices are high but you get great value for money and very good service.

In the days when sushi wasn't so easy to come by, sushi samba was wow, with all kinds of special combinations etc. ever since then, and after having eaten enough sushi probably in every luncheon, its a little dull, the sushi needs to jump rope in order to surprise us, and even cool places as sushi samba became secondary to nouveau cuisine, as we know most if the newly opening restaurants to be...
If in the area though it probably is still the best sushi around, maybe more for lunch then dinner, and the bar is probably the place to sit at, right by the Mondrian like lighted sign and the cool special drinks. No sign for samba dancing though..:)
