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 stop in here at least once a month for lunch. The food is always bang on and the price is great for all ya can eat. Everyone is always friendly and the restaurant is always clean.

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

We enjoy going to Samura for lunch buffet. Buffet menu is quite diverse, with good selection of sushi, rolls, hand rolls and a number of non-sushi items. Service is very quick and they easily handle big orders without mucking up, which is often the case with sushi buffets. There is also a large selection of non-buffet items and drinks. Samura... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is very pleasant. Service is surprisingly good. The quality of the food is quite good. Among the few sushi place in Guelph, Samurai is one of the best choice for you.
