Great sushi.

Sam's Sushi is a great place to get sushi. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is tidy. The food is great and the staff is very friendly. We visit Sam's Sushi 4 to 6 times a year.

My Daughter lived in Korea & has travelled all through Asia, She loves sushi! Sam's past the test, my daughter said it was the best she's had! The people working there are very sweet. I will go back for sure.

As always, Sam's Sushi didn't disappoint when we took two visitors there for dinner. Service is attentive, food fresh and delicious. Sam and his staff are always gracious. The restaurant is closed on Saturdays and Sundays (except for certain special occasions like Valentines Day), but the good thing is - it is open on Mondays, which many small independent restaurants...

Nothing fancy, simple yet creative decor, good service, great sushi. We enjoyed a quick lunch and hope to go back again next time we are nearby.

Parksville has many very good sushi places. Sam's seems to be the favourite of many. We bought a take out party tray for @ 24.95 and it was good. It was a busy night as it was Valentine's Day, the restaurant was packed. Nice atmosphere. We will come back and try the specials on the blackboard.

Awesome value. The food is fantastic, as is the service. Excellent bento for only $11.50. Super clean, too. The best place to eat in Oceanside, as far as I'm concerned.

I've been approximately 10 times in the past year and I've never been disappointed. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but once inside its friendly, cozy and the food is very authentic. The sashimi is wonderful. The rolls are perfect and made with light fluffy rice. There are some very tasty, unique rolls as well. The seafood is... More

I have lived in Parksville for the past six years and have never been disappointed by Sam's. This is place that most locals love and hold in high regard. Sam's is small, friendly and usually full during the lunch service. The varied menu has everything that you would expect at a sushi restaurant, but there are a few special regular... More

This place was recommended by fellow curlers. They said sushi made by someone truly from Japan. They also said that I should not be put off by appearance of restaurant. They were 100% right - very good sushi and very fresh.

This little place is in one of those little strip malls that bend around a corner, with businesses that seem to come and go - real estate office, multi level marketing biz - that sort of thing. The surrounding area is not much better - a combination of old houses that sprouted up along the old two lane highway up... More
