Every single time we have dined at Sam's it has been wonderful. Prompt on time service and a friendly welcoming atmosphere. The sashimi is the freshest and the tempura is some of the best on the island. We will keep on coming back for more!

I went there for a quick lunch and had the tempura udon soup. Friendly service and served quite quickly, steaming hot. The broth was excellent and needed no additional spices, although these were provided. The noodles, which were cooked al dente, and the side of tempura prawns and vegetables were more than enough for a good lunch. Many of the... More

Best sushi spot in the area, the tuna tataki is my favourite, very fresh and delicious. Beef terryaki is really good too.

My wife and I eat here every two months or so. I used to visit Japan a lot on business so appreciate good sushi. Sam's is the best I've encountered locally. Sam and his staff provide a charming and welcome environment.

We are not very frequent sushi eaters, so our ability to judge and compare is somewhat limited. That said, the sushi here was as good as I have ever had. We tried the Volcano and Salmon tempura, and salmon mango rolls. All were amazing. Service was very friendly and quick.

This was a cute little place. We knew we wanted to try Sushi being on the Island and we found this on Trip advisor and thought we would try it. No lie ! This place was great, and we were lucky to get there when we did, at around 11:30am on a Thursday as it was packed by 12:15 and... More

Sam's sushi is a great place for personalized, attractively-priced, consistent quality, traditional Japanese chef-made sushi. The best part about the place is Sam and his staff, they are certainly the crowning jewel(s) of the establishment. I do recommend eating here if you're in the hood--the over all space is intimate (tight on size) and it can be busy so be... More
