Having visited SushiSamba in London, we were thrilled to learn they had just opened their doors in Amsterdam, so we simply had to visit whilst in the city. We have had very pleasant experiences at the London SushiSamba and were hoping the Amsterdam restaurant would not disappoint. On first look, the décor was vibrant and held a certain amount of intrigue and instantly felt reminiscent of the London location. After being welcomed and walked to our table we were introduced to the concept and the menus.

We decided to begin with an aperitif. I chose the Samba Sour cocktail, which saw a blend of Pisco brandy and maraschino liqueur, shaken with yuzu, egg white and turmeric infusion. This cocktail was fruity, with interesting notes of turmeric - it was delicious and complex. My partner chose the Coconut Seviche, which saw gin mixed with yuzu, passion fruit, coconut sugar and chocolate liqueur. Indulgent and tropical, this cocktail was like a refreshing holiday in a glass. Alongside our cocktails, we shared some edamame seasoned with orange salt and lime, as we browsed the menus.

“The sushi was extremely tasty and exceptionally fresh, making it a real pleasure to enjoy and solidifying SushiSamba’s fabulous reputation.”

For our starters, I chose the tiger maki sushi which was complete with takuwan, wasabi tobiko, crab meat, tempura prawn, tiger prawn, wasabi mayo, beetroot yogurt and unagi tare. My partner chose the California maki which saw snow crab and Cornish brown crab with cucumber, avocado, sesame, japanese mayo and truffle oil. The sushi was extremely tasty and exceptionally fresh, making it a real pleasure to enjoy and solidifying SushiSamba’s fabulous reputation.

For our main courses, we shared the Wagyu KAGOSHIMA, which is served on a hot stone, along with dipping sauces and pickled plums. This dish saw wonderfully authentic Kobe beef that came served carved, allowing you to cook it to your personal preference on the hot stone. Being fans of interactive dining, we thoroughly enjoyed the main course as an experience in its own right.

To accompany our meal, we chose a bottle of the 2015 Les Vins de Vienne, Les Cranilles, Cotes du Rhone, Rhone, France, flavours of dark fruits and peppery spices complimented our beef wonderfully.

Throughout the meal the staff at SushiSamba were extremely friendly and the service was prompt, with recommendations on hand should they be required. Amsterdam is not short of good restaurants and SushiSamba is no exception, making it a fine addition to Amsterdam dining scene.
