I was there with friends, and the place itself is nice, we did not reserve table but Eva, the girl that attended us was really nice and offered us a place at the bar, which was fine considering the fact that we did not made reservation. The food was great and so was the service. The only bad thing is... More

This place had a very odd decore, a mix of japanese and hawaian influences. But don't worry, the food is very good and the service excellent. We have been there a couple of times, and everything we have ordered is very good, starters, mains and deserts. This is a place for special occasions. The experience is memorable, and they go...

Was craving sushi and this was another spot I had picked out to eat at while visiting. Decided on one of their signature cocktails for a beverage and then the omakase which is a 6 course meal that it is essentially done up on the fly. Beef carapace, assorted sushi, salted codfish and rack of lamb as main course before... More

We read the reviews and we're looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately, the great reviews posted here are way off and can't be explained by an off night in the kitchen The maki is the main issue. We ordered the "favourite" Icelandic roll (3500 CR for 8 pieces - $32 USD for a single roll!) which came as poorly... More

Great place with a quirky mix of Japanese and Latin food. We ordered a sample menu which was really well-composed. Interesting nuances and just about the right amount (a bit too much food). And the Best service experiences in Reyk. Worth a visit.

When I want to enjoy good mood and enjoyment of good food in Reykjavik, it is Sushi social. After changing the name, there is still much samba mood in atmosphere and food. Previously I've eaten my way through the menu "Icelandic feast," which certainly can be recommended. A rich journey in a fusion of Asia, South America and Iceland. This... More

This was an amazing place to eat. The sushi was just out of this world fresh and delicious! It seems to be the place to go for the young hip and famous with bumping music on the background. Staff is great and atmosphere is cool. A must visit when in Reykjavik!

Fantastic sushi! The set up of the restaurant is very nice too. Elma and Jenny were our servers and they did a great job. They were very nice, helpful with the menu and had great suggestions. I'd go back anytime!

Hands down 5 stars. The quality of food and the outstanding attention to detail in every meal is like nothing I've experienced before. This incredible meal was somehow made EVEN BETTER by our amazing waitress whose name I believe is Elin. Absolutely flawless service. You'd be crazy not to come here if you're in this area of Iceland 😊

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.
