We visited Sushi Samba for dinner the night we got engaged. The food was the best we've had while in Iceland, but the cherry on the top was our wonderful waitress Rachael who made us feel very special. We wish we had time to visit again!

Saw an advertisement in a magazine about this place so we decided to give it a try. We were seated immediately and were greeted very quick by our waiter. Very nice guy and spoke great English. We decided to get one roll each (Samba Roll?) and were VERY impressed with the speed and quality. Will certainly be back again!

came twice during our stay in Iceland. as mentioned by other travellers, price is not cheap but then again, nothing is cheap in the city. service was warm and friendly. watch out for their happy hour from 5-6pm where some items/cocktails can be half price!

A great place to eat. We arrived when they opened and got the best seats in the house without a reservation. The food was fresh, well prepared and well presented. The wait staff were excellent as well. We ordered the seven course Icelandic feast which was a little pricey by U.S. standards, but for Iceland it was quite a bargain.

We arrived early for our Friday 8 PM reservation, after only a brief moment, we were seated in a nice corner end table next to a larger table of diners. This was not a problem as we settled in and began perusing the vast menu. Our young, but attentive server took her time to explain the concept and we began... More

Doesn't look like much from outside though as soon as you walk inside it's beautiful! We didn't have a reservation and it was very busy but they fitted us in. The service was impeccable, the sushi was some of the best and most fresh that I have tasted.....and I eat a LOT of sushi. It's also tricky to find nice... More

Me and my fiancé popped in here for an evening meal after an exciting evening of proposals :), we were in our warm gear with messy hair but it didn't matter we were made too feel welcome. Within 20mins all 15, 2 ppl tables were full and it's easy too see why. We ordered the spider sushi (8pcs) tuna maki... More
