We had a 8 course meal. Not one was tasty. The food was below average, served by a waitress who had no clue what she was serving us (and why). Terrible! Cannot recommend.

The food was so delicious. We chose the Unique Icelandic Feasting menu. Each dish was really different and the attention to detail was fantastic. We had a delicious cocktailand the atmosphere in the restaurant was carnival and lots of fun. As with anything in Iceland...More

A disgrace they still serve minke whale. If you want to pay £130 for the same quality sushi as you’d find in a £3 Tesco meal deal, be my guest.

Truly great meal- although prices are astronomical. Lively atmosphere, decent service and some phenomenal dishes. My dessert (panacotta) was the most disappointing dish. Two suggestions to the management team- more vegetarian options on the menu- and stop serving whale. Lots of ethical restaurants in Iceland...More

I have been to Sushi Social a few times now, usually celebrating a birthday. Most recently the 8th of April. I always walk out satisfied and very well fed. The food is amazing, especially the beef! The staff has always been so nice to us,...More

Sushi in Iceland is great. We wanted a place we haven’t gone yet and these guys were listed as number 2. But the place was top notch. We didn’t have a reservation but we’re seated immediately. We had the Sashimi Party, lobster cigar and lobster...More

If you love sushi like we do, this is a not to miss restaurant in Iceland. The sashimi platter was incredible and huge for sharing; the Arctic char, octopus, tuna, salmon, scallops all tasted like the had been caught that morning and the sushi rolls...More

Loved the sushi, loved the cocktail menu, loved the whole atmosphere. Very pricey, but everything in town is going to be expensive. Would definitely eat here again.

Open at the end of 2011 and a hot favorite on the Reykjavik restaurant scene, Sushi Social - samba & grill offers a deliciously unique take on homegrown ingredients, fusing Iceland's freshest flavors with Japanese and South American influences. The menu offers a great selection, tempting smaller courses, traditional and "Juicy- Sushi" , amazing steaks and sweet desserts. If you can't decide what to go for, the Icelandic feast is a perfect solution - six courses form an incredible taste experience that includes the national aperitif 'Brennivin' and an Icelandic Skyr panna cotta for dessert. Fabulous chili mojitos and a gorgeously eclectic interior are the icing on the cake at Sushi Social. Hand- carved Brazilian curios and some 50 pretty Japanese birdcages complement the contemporary lines and gentle feel of the place.
