Don't pass this one by!

We drove by this place many times in our travels. It doesn't look on the outside as great as it is, trust me! True Japanese sushi, made quickly and with precision. The best tempura shrimp roll I've had anywhere. Hubby and daughter raved about the tuna and salmon sushimi. Loved it! Would have... read more

I been a number of times. It's a small restaurant, always busy and very popular. I've also been saved by their party platters which are beautifully done on social occasions and I find their pricing is fair. They ask about 30min for a full party platter which isn't bad either.

Sam's Sushi serves traditional sushi, the rice is vinigarey and perfect, excellent melt-in-your-mouth tuna and non farmed salmon. This place has combos that include rolls without raw fish for the beginner. We loved it so much, we came back two days later for more! Has a few other items, Gyoza, sunumono salad, spinach gomae, and a good, not syrupy but... More

My family really likes the place and the food. I found the chicken curry to be just average - this trip. I have been here before and it seemed to me that quality had slipped a little but is still acceptable.

The owner of this restaurant is a very likable, genuine and courteous man which is always a good sign. The sushi is fresh and the prices are good. Sushi restaurant,s if they are good ones need to adhere to strict standards of freshness. This being a local favourite is testament to the fact they have met this bar and or... More

Probably the best Sushi Restaurant in the area. I like that they do not serve farmed salmon as some places do. Service is excellent and very quick. They have just enough selection to please most sushi lovers.
