We frequent this sushi restaurant monthly, and it never fails to impress. We love the personalized service, and fresh selection of fish. The tempura is crispy and light, the sushimi is fresh and bite sized. The service can be improved with more wait staff, and sports on the big screen can be eliminated to create better atmosphere. Always clean, and... More

This restaurant has steadily gone downhill. We ordered al la carte and did not get the number of pieces stated. We also tried to order oolong tea and coffee and were told it was no longer on the menu. The pieces of sushi were tiny and they put avocado in with the unagi! I will definitely not be back given...

This was our first time trying this restaurant. I'll admit the bright fancy lights drew us in. We had the all you can eat sushi and Korean BBQ. The food was just ok. It tasted fine, but didn't seem at the same level of quality as other sushi restaurants in the area. Service was slow, even though the restaurant was... More

We went for the Korean BBQ. The food was great but the staff was a bit slow. They said they were "very busy" but there was really only one other table there. Ive been to many Korean bbq restaurants and they usually offer to change the grills after a while but they didnt do that here. It makes cooking easier... More

Order from the menu and you will have more than enough to eat and it will be cheaper in the long run. Food is fresh, good variety and friendly young staff.

I love the sushi boats when dining with sushi beginners (or even for myself as I like the variety). Fresh and delicious every time!

We enjoyed our "all you can eat" sushi meal very much. The menu has a variety of food to select from so if someone in your dining party is not overly fond of sushi, no problem; there are other non-sushi options included in the "all you can eat menu". Menu includes beverage (pop, coffee or tea), appetizers, sushi, dessert, plus... More

Samura is our favorite restaurant - a fantastic Japanese restaurant. There are so many choices on the menu - we are both vegetarian and always find a wide selection of items to choose from. Also, the staff are willing to make certain dishes into vegetarian dishes for us. The staff are always polite and friendly, and the food always comes... More
