I always go for my anniversary, birthday, valentines day and any other chance I get! I love it! My favorite restaurant. Best quality fish and meat in Dominican Republic. The salmon is to die for!(any salmon plate) The sashimi Guatapaná con Coco!! The sake! Green tea tiramisu!! It's not cheap but neither is the quality so it's definitely worth it!!

I'm Japanese. If this restaurant is in Japan, nobody goes. They use dried noodle for soba. Miso soup is tepid. It was a terrible Japanese restaurant. But there's many Dominicans. Because they don't know true Japanese food. Maybe it's difficult to find Japanese there. We know that Samurai is just expensive.

Gyosas, miso soup, spicy tuna tempura roll, green tea tiramisu, and "conegito"... just to name a few must-try's. The image forms in your mind. Delicious, healthy... not just sushi, it's all japanese food with remarkably deep flavours!

Samurai is my go-to place for sushi in the city. I absolutely love everything I've tried, especially the Ikebana roll, fujisan sashimi, mariscos flameados, and so many others. It's very hard to put into words exactly how much I love this place (since I come here about once a week). This is by far the freshest sushi I've had in... More

My family and I celebrated our mothers birthday at the Samurai restaurant because she loves sushi. This is the only decent sushi worth eating in the dominican republic. The way of the sushi is cut, the texture, the smell, the amount of rice, and the presentation is the way sushi should be. Apart from the sushi I was very impressed... More

It is a ver crowded pricey place, too expensive for what you really get, flavor is OK, but the place is more name and fame than anything else. Sushi is not very good, there are other places in Santo Domingo with way better atmosphere, less expensive and more value offered than this one. It smells terrible around that restaurant and... More
