"My wife and I have gone twice with another couple and both times it has been consistently EXCELLENT. Huge menu with plenty of unique choices. I had a Brazilian meet platter with Top Sirloin, chicken, pork and sausage with side dishes and the coconut pineapple cake for dessert. All delicious. Try the shredded beef or their "stew". All very nice choices for something beyond Americana.
It is downtown Hopkins so the setting is what you would expect. The staff is friendly. It makes us feel like we were "out of the country in a little off the beaten path ethnic family restaurant.
Definitely give this place a try.

"The food was excellent. Deep flavors and beautifully presented. The owner and his staff were very helpful and excellent hosts! We had 4 kids with us and they all loved the ambiance along with the food. Everyone tried something they'd never eaten and there was not a bad review in the bunch. They have a little market in the restaurant that you can purchase some authentic Brazilian food to take home with you. They also have Guarana, a favorite soda of my husbands when he travels to Brazil. We were so happy to find it in Minnesota. We will be back - often. We had the Paella - which was decedent and delicious, Seafood Moqueca heaven with the muscles and scallops, Gnocchi - yummy goodness for my picky daughter who ate it all up, Lobster Bisque - a new favorite for my other daughter and the Picanha - which my son devoured. Can't wait to go back to try another dish! Oh, and the desserts...yum. Chocolate lava cake went over well. Of course they have traditional Brazilian desserts, too. I should also mention that you get a lot of food! The portions are take-home worthy and that's a good thing because the next day I wanted more!"

"Food was great! Interesting family run place. Fun waiter. Father of family is Italian, mother is Spanish, but they are from Brazil. Menu represents all three countries with pastas, paella, and Brazilian dishes. Fresh, simple, modern decor. A surprise for Mainstreet Hopkins. Try it!"

"Wonderful food, service and ambiance! Recently discovered this little gem after a trip to Brazil and my oh my, it tastes just like the restaurants in Rio and Sao Paulo. Yum yum yum. There is something for every taste here."

"What a great surprise! We went to Samba for restaurant week, but definitely want to go back again soon. Their portions are huge, perfect for a leftover lunch and even more flavor on the second day. Very friendly atmosphere! They also have a little shop in the front if you want to bring some items home to try to make yourself."

"Having never eaten at Samba, we made reservations for dinner before a concert one block away. What a terrific find! So many choices of delectable choices -- and an especially refreshing change for me, with celiac disease... at least half the huge menu was not only gluten free, it was identified as such, making it simple for me to order. Our group had no problem finding delicious meals -- the challenge was making up our minds from the wide range of items. Everything we ordered was excellent, and generous portions. My one and only complaint was the cost of a pitcher of red sangria... $24? hello? A bottle of what I'm pretty certain was the identical item costs $5 at the store... all they did was add a few sliced fruit pieces. Otherwise, we had an excellent and very filling meal, with take-home boxes for the leftovers. I'll go again, without question... even just for the appetizers (mussels and deep-fried yucca, wowzer)."

"I enjoyed the palm salad and the shrimp chowder. Pork over yucca was excellent. The white sangria with a nice variety of fruit and a glass of red wine finished the meal. We will be back."

"Really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and exceedingly friendly service. Definitely will return next time I'm in town. The paella was delicious--a great palette of rice, spice, and (in my case) meat. The whole place is an unassuming gem in the heart of Hopkins, and I hope more people get the chance to experience it!"
