Expert review of Sushisamba

An unlikely fusion of Brazilian, Japanese and Peruvian - but it works.

You wouldn't usually put Brazilian, Japanese and Peruvian food together, but the success of this small, classy chain proves that it works, and any lingering doubts get cast aside the minute you tuck into your starter. I love the varied menu, the quality is fantastic and the place has a real buzz to it (in part thanks to its Sugarcane Lounge bar within the restaurant). It's a great place to go with friends.

Food and drink: 

There's a big range of sushi, soup and tempura on the Japanese menu, anticuchos - skewers with meat and corn on the cob - on the Peruvian side, and even a full list of churrasco meats to fill the Brazilian quota. The menu really is extensive - there's even a section devoted to kobe beef. 

Recommended dishes: 

I love the seared kobe beef with mushroom and a truffled crema. 

Ambience: 

It's very trendy, and predominantly a place for groups - who dine here before going on to a show or a club - rather than couples. It can get pretty noisy, too. But the place has a nice buzz to it.

Service: 

Friendly and pretty quick.

Location: 

In the Palazzo, so central for the Strip.

Price advice: 

Small, tapas-style plates from US$9. Mains from US$25.
