Sushi Samba 7--overpriced

Stephanie L. | Mar 13, 2002 09:19 AM

I went to Sushi Samba 7 last night for a quick early dinner (needed to be someplace by 6:45). Got a mojito & it had so much mint in it I thought briefly that someone had dumped spinach in my drink. Needless to say, it wasn't very tasty even after I had picked most of the mint out. Had the striped bass trajito which was okay but you only get 4 thin slices. The Sushi Samba combo was absurdly overpriced--$22 for six nigiri and 1 roll (4 slices). The fish was decent but no big deal and the nigiri were small. The roll was pretty straightforward too, the only "quirk" being it had radish strips around each piece.

I don't know how good the hot food is, but the prices for that didn't seem to be any bargain either. I guess it really is a "scene" place more than anything else. Next time I'm going to drop that kind of money on sushi I'll go to Taka across the street.
