I'm from NYC and had previously been to Sushi Samba in Manhattan. On this occasion I was actually renting the house next door to this place in Reykjavik a group of friends. 6 of us checked this place out because it had a fun looking vibe and despite looking pretty full there was no wait for seating. The waitress was... More

We went here twice as our first meal was so good. We had the Icelandic feast which was a chance to sample foods traditional to Iceland and the 'simply the best' meal. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere, there was something a little theatrical about the presentation of some dishes which was great. The pace of service was relaxed meaning... More

Wonderful food all round. Not sure how many actual tourists were there as we... More

Everything we ate was of a very high standard and of the freshest quality. With improved and coordinated... More

During a recent 4 day trip to Reykjavik, my wife and I dined at Sushi Samba twice. Although there is a chain of restaurants in the U.S. that go by the same name, this restaurant is not a part of this chain. It just shares the same name. Actually, the a Sushi Samba in Reykjavik is even better than the... More

We went here the first evening of our trip to Iceland and didn't have reservations. The place was crowded, but after a few minutes we got table. We took the "Simply the Best" menu, and it was also simply the best. Very good japanese fusion cuisine. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. I will certainly return.

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.
