My partner an I have tried the other sushi places in Guelph and prefer this one by far. The staff is friendly, the service is prompt and the food is fresh. The decor is simple and the place is always clean. Their 'all you can eat' is a good value.

Samurai used to be sooooo awesome a few years back. This was our 'go-to- place but then as is always the case...the ownership changed and it switched to AYE so we haven't gone back for a while. Tried the A la Carte menu recently. It was OK. The food is fresh, although, the tempura that was included on my husband's... More

Stopped in for the all you can eat lunch. Stayed at the hotel next door. The service excellent and friendly, food was very good, soups where hot and tasty. Others in our group ordered the take out and said the quantities where way above normal. I highly recommend this place.

I eat at Samura on a regular basis and I love their food, however, I stick with the vegetarian options. The service and food are always consistent and the prices are great.

This is the best all you can eat sushi restaurant in Guelph. Every time we're in Guelph we go to this place. The fish on the Nigiri sushi are good and just at the right temperature. the rice can sometimes be a little bit sour from the rice vinegar but still not over powering. they also have other selection like...

For basic, decent sushi and other small Japanese dishes (edamame, seaweed salad, tempura) in an order-all-you-can-eat format, try to overlook the underwhelming exterior in the parking lot of a motel, and try Samura. The tatami room is nice for groups (with a foot well for inflexible Westerners) and service was fine. The beef and green onion rolls were nicely grilled,... More

We can say, Samura is not so special. I like the Restaurant interior, remind me of Japan, simple and traditional. We had AYE, the menu for AYE is plain. I may like their A la carte menu better.  We like the seaweed salad, their portion was more than any other restaurant. The The  avocado salad was yummy too, we like... More

We enjoyed our meal here, but we've also had better Japanese elsewhere. The avocado salad was pretty good, and the rolls were average but tasty. We also had the Gioza which was not that great.

I think this is the best sushi place in Guelph. We always come here with my classmates and friends, Especially we love that they have big kinda separated room for big groups of people. If you plant to come with big group they will seat you there. It is so cosy and nice there that you don't want to leave.... More
