I've been here a few times now. Very addictive yakitori and is always prepared fresh. Kind of place to go to for a nibble. Still yet to try a proper meals and their takoyaki roulette!! I guess the yakitori is not so yucky after all ;) Wonderful and friendly staff. Decor is nice. Plates, cups, etc are authentic. I wouldn't... More

Travelled to GC for a business trip, I love Japanese food, found this little Yakitori bar on the tripadvisor. On their menu everything has a photo with two Yakitori skewers, but after I placed order, it only came with one skewer, what a misleading~! Funny~! and I felt the price is expensive for that skewer. Not recommend. I don't know... More

I read the reviews and so four of us went to try it out. We were astounded it was so highly rated! Only the yaki tori was good, but not amazing. The Gyu Don was so bland and we hated it. The Tempura was ok. So out of the three dishes the yaki tori was best. I would not recommend... More

If you like to try simple Japanese dishes especially yakitori, this is a good place. The restaurant is small and cozy. The yakitori are cooked when it's ordered. (The price is bit expensive for yakitori), however other menu are pretty reasonable & good taste. Most of staff are Japanese, owner's wife is not but she is very friendly & understand... More

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.

The food tasted authentic, right portion (not too much food, we were full after our meals but not stuffed!) and were just beautiful.
