This place got us in cause of the pic of lasagna on the window. My 7 year old was craving it. We got in and to our excitement discovered it was a buffet. There was plenty to choose from. The staff were very friendly and the kids loved the meat choices.

Have been eating here couple of times now and every time it's getting better. Having read some negative reviews here make me confused: Are we talking about the same place? This place offers value for money, especially when having the Churrascaria buffet where also salads and other sides are included. Samba is for meat lovers, meat in many forms. Servers... More

We was greeted in a friendly way, and first impretion was good. We was recomended the most expencive steake on the menu, because we could then take from the "hot" and cold buffet. So we did.. I had some cheese and bread while waiting for the meat. Bread was old and dry, and I also guess that the cheese had... More

I didn't expect it to be that bad, I have been there 3 years ago the last time for dinner and it was fine (not perfect but fine). This time I have been there with a group of 10. Selection of meat was poor, it was quite obvious that they try to save money as much as they can. A... More

Meats are served brazil-style and ok, but the place is lacking, if any, of brazil-spirit. The service definitely needs upgrading as it seems they are trying to hide the meats from you and you need to call/remind the wait staff several times. Overall, the place is boring and lacks energy, considering it's theme as brazil. Try for yourself - but... More

Sat here pretty shocked after reading the reviews ... We ate here without reading trip advisors (as a fussy eater I don't usually do this) but honestly we had the all you can eat buffet on a Friday night & it was great! It isn't busy so maybe that's why the service was fantastic and the food was yummy! Incredibly... More
