Great Sushi – Lunch hour favorite! Fresh sushi, excellent miso, and friendly service. Get in early - this place fills up FAST.
Great Sushi and Service – The sushi is exteremely fresh and good and the service is exceptional. There would not be a line of people waiting to get in every weekend if this wasn't true. Also they now have a wood burning stove and have added fresh grilled fish and steaks to their menu. I have tried the grilled mai mai and salmon and I can attest to their flavor. My wife and I go there almost every Friday and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience each time. I highly recommend them.
And no, I don't work for the restaurant.
Don't do it! – We have been going to Samuria for years because of our parents and I don't know if they have changed hands but THEY ARE AWFUL! The food is mediocre at best and tghe service is BRUTAL! GO ANYWHERE BUT DON'T ORDER FROM THEM!
terrible food, for once – i was so dissapointed. i loved this place and always tell others about it although in the back of my mind knowing that its best kept a secret and don't always want to get out. I have been going to Samuari for about 9 years now and tonight I had some of the worst sushi I have ever had. I think that bad nights can happen with fish however the story gets deeper. One of the owners asked how everything wsas and I said "ok". My husband asked me why I didn't say that it wasn't good to which I replied "I didn't want to embarrass you". He let me know that I should tell them the fish wasn't good. The next time that the gal came around, I let her know that 3 of the fish I had were not good. And that what came from the kitchen cooked, were good. She told me that fish was fresh that day. Not good I told her. Not to mention there was no shine to the fish like there should be. I have love this place for a long time and referred many people to it but after tonights experience, I don't know if I can be an advocate.
More Americanized – My husband and I used to come here over 10 years ago. Back then, it had more of the atmosphere of a traditional neighborhood Japanese restaurant & the clientele to match (We had lived in Japan years ago).
Recently, we went again & found that it was much more Americanized. The food's still great and so is the service, but the ambience is lost. It's still worth going to, but it's not the same.
Unprofessional management – I visited today (June 16) for lunch and the food was great along with the service. My experience was good until I witnessed my waitress getting fired in front of me and the rest of the restaurant. It was uncalled for and very unprofessional especially for a manager.
GREAT SUSHI, CHEAP PRICE – I love to visit Sushi Samarai for lunch & dinner. For lunch, I often meet friends & sit at the sushi bar. For dinner, I like the 2 for 1 drinks specials all night, especially saki & all my favorite dishes are served for a measly $20. The green mussels, dynamite & jalapeno rolls are excellent! Reserve one of their private rooms for large parties. Dana always takes good care of us & makes us feel appreciated as loyal customers. I read the many coments about the poor service at Samarai posted here & although some criticisms may be valid, the overall experience is always pleasant & the food is good. Don't be in a rush when you visit Samarai & you, too, will recommend it to your friends!
don't bother – The food here is great but that's where it stops. After waiting for a server after being seated, we had to ask for more drinks after the waitress looked at our table several times without coming over. We ordered the all you can eat sushi lunch buffet and I am convinced they take as long as possible to bring the food so you give up and leave. We ordered off of a card and never even received items we ordered, but didn't have the time to waste an actual waitress trip to our table to argue over what we didn't get. The attitude was less than desirable as well. All in all, if quality of service doesn't matter to you and you have hours to spend, this is the place for you.
My Favorite Sushi Restaurant - I love this place! – We have been eating at Samurai for many, many years and we love it! In fact, I try to go there once a week to get my sushi fix. The restaurant has become more crowded since they started the all you can eat option, more so on the weekends at least, but what do you expect when you go to a great restaurant that offers delicious sushi at such a great price! Unlike a couple of the prior reviews, we have never had to wait unusually long for our order to arrive. The all u can eat sushi is awesome both for lunch and dinner. It is not one of those yucky all u can eat buffets. You actually order off of a special sushi menu with many items to choose from including appetizers and non-sushi items (i.e Gyoza, Shumai, Tempura, Beef Teriyaki, etc.). For dinner the price is approx. $5 more with even more items to choose from. The sushi is fresh and they do a great job with the preparation. You can order off of the regular menu if you prefer not to take advantage of the all-u-can-eat option.
The owner, Dana, is very friendly and always greets us with a great big smile. Her staff provides us with friendly, personal, and attentive service.
If you are in a hurry to stuff your face with sushi and go, don't expect to get that done here at peak hours. If the place is crowded when you get there, get a table, relax, have some happy hour drinks and enjoy your meal and your friends. We love to share the Samurai experience with our friends and family. I hope you enjoy it too! And just know that there is a very good reason this restaurant gets full...it's great!
Great Place – I have been going for months now, at least once a week.
If you want fast food, go to McD's. If you want a relaxing, and quality dinner, then come and enjoy.
