I don't normally bother with reviewing restaurants - a meals a meal, but something about this restaurant really impressed me. I can't quite decide whether it was the brilliant service (really attentive) the beautiful food or maybe it was the opulent bathroom (seriously - check it out) but Sambusek went above & beyond our expectations. Great work guys!

They have a great location and the overall ambience of the place is top notch but the food was disappointing. Also, the service could be a lot better.

We visited the restaurant and we were not disappointed it was excellent. I absolutely loved the food and the atmosphere... Large choice of food, colorful, lovely, there’s a lot of variety! The Staff was Top Notch, very fast and smiling with a very positive attitude... Nader or Nadi I don't remember the correct name was really very helpful and made us feel special... I would recomdand this place to everyone who would like to have an outstanding experience.
