We were staying in Surfers Paradise for a long weekend break. We saw the great reviews for Samurais on tripadvisor and thought we'd give it a try. The reviews were right! We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the whole experience....and all for $25 for the two of us! The friendly staff were a delight :) Highly recommended.

We've been to Japan and this eatery reminded us of being in one of the eateries in the Subway of Japan. The food tasted authentic, right portion (not too much food, we were full after our meals but not stuffed!) and were just beautiful. Lovely staff and as it is in a lane way in Monte Carlo building, its nice... More

Excellent yakitori, great value. Love their agedashi tofu and udon broth. Each skewer comes in original, with cheese or with mayo. I would prefer a choice with teriyaki sauce or some other sauce.

We came across this by accident just exploring the city, so glad we did too. This made up for the average dining experience we had previous. I chose 4 small meals from the menu, (Menu is extensive!), As my partner hadn't tried much Japanese before. We were not let down. So much flavour, very authentic. The sizes are decent too.... More

Decided to try here after reviews on tripadvisor and were very happy we found it(even the local police didnt know where it was). The food was great and so were the staff. It was very quiet when we were there(Monday night) only a couple of locals that obviously know where to eat, but I can see why it gets busy.... More

Must say that we may be there at the wrong time of the year, school holiday and Friday night, the resturant is packed inside out. Staff were very friendly, but I felt sorry for the lady who look after the whole floor, it is an impossible task! And in the kitchen area, all these guys were so busy with try... More

Thank you very much for coming our Yakitori Bar. And sorry our staff was not a lot. Because our restaurant is small and sometimes busy and sometimes quiet. That's Japanese style. Please come here after 8pm, every time here is not so much people. Arigato. More

Went with the family and had a great meal. Very authentic and kids loved the chicken yakitori. Samurai noodle special was delicious also. Generous servings. And must try the takoyaki balls - rivals the ones in Japan! Location wise a bit hard to find especially with hungry kids aged 9 & 6 in two after a big day at the... More
