Only at SUSHISAMBA will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design.
SUSHISAMBA is born of the energy and spirit of these three distinct cultures; a tri-cultural coalition that took root in the early 20th century when thousands of Japanese emigrants traveled to South America's fertile soil to cultivate coffee plantations and find their fortune. In bustling cities like Lima in Peru, and São Paulo in Brazil, the integration of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cultures flourished.
This cultural phenomenon launched a culinary coup. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches found a place at the table along side simple miso soup and tender sashimi. SUSHISAMBA serves these traditional dishes, plus more inventive fare, including sashimi seviche, tuna tataki, and our south american beef maki roll. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique.
SUSHISAMBA swung open its doors on park avenue south in NYC in 1999. Since, we’ve proudly opened six locations, including a second Manhattan location, as well as SUSHISAMBA Miami, Chicago, Tel Aviv and Las Vegas. In November, 2009, we celebrated ten years of singular, soulful style and superlative dining and service.
Beating at the heart of every SUSHISAMBA is a deep appreciation for enjoying life and celebrating with friends. We welcome you: Bem-vindo!
