Excellent Value for the great food served

This is a Japanese restaurant which prepares their food Hibachi style. They also have Sushi. The salads are great and the house dressing is out-of-this-world. The portions are very good, well prepared and have excellent flavor served with a ginger sauce. The prices are VERY REASONABLE. Can't wait... read more

Fresh cooked hibachi is delicious. Plate is filled with delicious veggies, chicken, shrimp, steak, or combination of your choice. Their salad dressing is awesome. We always select two salads and drop the soup. Well worth the trip. Not a fancy building but has become one of our favorites

No they don't do Hibachi in front of table , but it is open and near by the dining room like most grills. The food is delicious the ginger salad is the best I've had. The flavor is great... Love this place and hope it stays open long time!

I had avoided this place as my partner is not a steak eater. Thanks to a Trip Advisor contributor, I learned that this is more of a sushi place and less of a steakhouse. After our lunch today, I'm kicking myself we didn't try it sooner. I ordered a lunch special, the Hibachi NY Steak, she got the Benito Box... More

This is the best thing going in Athens. But consider that everything else is either a chain or a BBQ. They were very pleasant, good service, friendly. But the rice had been fried in a LOT of oil. We thought the hibachi would be done at the table, but it just appeared as a finished plate

Samurai restaurant is not a Steakhouse as they advertise. They are a Japanese restaurant that serves A grade sushi & hibachi grilled entrees. Quality of food , method of cooking & service are all outstanding. Sushi is exceptionally good & the taste combinations Samurai present are inventive & as good to eat as the presentation on the plate. Sweet tea... More

I've been there several times and always very good. We had a mix of sushi rolls, Tuna, salmon, eel, cooked shrimp and they were wonderful. Also they have a great seaweed salad. They have other types of things noodles,rice, hibachi, teriyaki and tempura dishes with Japanese style. Love this place!!
