Excellent Chef's and they get you involved in the entertainment. Very cheerful and they put in a good shift. Food was fantastic but it is pricey. We will go again.

This was while back few years ago. February 2010 to be specific. Stumbled upon to this place a bit late. But the staffs were more then welcoming to accommodate us. Very good atmosphere. Good company and a very good entertainment. Bonus to that, food was brilliant.

Each table has their won Japanese chef who prepares the food in front of you and gets you involved in the cooking. You get to try bouncing and catching eggs and catching bowls of rice. The banter from the chef was very entertaining and the food was lovely. Really good fun.

We absolutely love Samisen. The atmosphere is like nothing else in the area, the show given by the chef at your table is worth the money itself, it's both entertaining and very funny but you just have to get involved, don't be shy, you won't enjoy it as much if you are. Then of course the food, well to but... More

The food is not that great, but this is more than made up for by the Cook's skills who incredibly juggle and skilfully cut up food in front of you, keeping up an amusing banter throughout. Worthwhile going not for food, but for the entertainment value.

Returning to Cyprus with my family after 4 years away, I had to eat at Samisen again following my previous experience. Once again I was not disappointed. The service was excellent (in fact Louka the owner remembered me from my previous visit), the quality of the food outstanding and the chef's show left even my 2yr old amazed. The new... More
