Our Story


Only at SUSHISAMBA will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian culture and cuisine. 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 alongside simple miso soup and tender sashimi. SUSHISAMBA serves these traditional dishes, plus more inventive fare, including sawagani, tuna tataki and anticuchos. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique.


SUSHISAMBA swung its doors open in New York City in 1999. Since then, the restaurant group has celebrated over 15 years of singular, soulful style and superlative dining, proudly opening locations in Miami, Las Vegas, London and Amsterdam.


Beating at the heart of every SUSHISAMBA is a deep appreciation for enjoying life and celebrating with friends.


The interior of every SUSHISAMBA is created to evoke images of Brazil’s annual Carnaval celebration. SUSHISAMBA’s signature colors of mango, rich red, lime and gold cast a uniquely rosy glow on each restaurant day or night. Beautiful light fixtures fill the ceilings and provide guests with a distinctive signature style, while deep banquets are cloaked in soul warming reds and tangy Amazon greens that prove irresistible to guests who find solace in them for the evening. The sushi bar is the centerpiece of each restaurant, and proves to be the best seat in the house from which to survey the scene.

Some say that imitation is the best form of flattery; we say…not so much.


If a SUSHISAMBA® location is not listed here in our ‘location’ section, it’s simply not a real, authentic SUSHISAMBA®.
