This was my first experience with Japanese cuisine, and I have returned so many times. Great food all in all, and the service is also very friendly.

One of the most popular japanese restaurants in Dhaka. Lots of regular customers and caters to a large local and expat community. Good food, reasonable prices. Interiors very bland and not fancy, but the sushi and sashimi is usually quite decent. Other favourites are the Beef Chilly Grill and the Cuttlefish chilly grill. Both tasty. Also all meals come with... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Dhaka, especially for Japanese food. The place reminds of some typical Japanese restaurants in Tokyo..... food is not really authentic Japanese, but if you are missing a Japanese taste, this restaurant provides that appetite!

Samdado is in walking distance from the Westin Hotel in Gulshan. There's quite a bit of construction in the vicinity of the restaurant, so roads are poor with lots of potholes. The interior is rather basic but the service is efficient. The food was good, although not comparable to other good Japanese restaurants in South Asia. But I guess given... More

Not impressed. This might have been as good it could get in Dhaka 10 years ago, but nowadays you can find much better Japanese food elsewhere. Some dishes where ok but the sushi was a total disappointment. Both fish and rice was tasteless.

Dhaka is now becoming the city of food, but authentic Japanese food is not available everywhere. Very few places you might find fresh sushi and Japanese food. Samdado is one of the best place to hang out and eat sushi. the bento box they serve is authentic and price is reasonable. Moreover you can have your own drink without paying... More

Nothing spectacular about Samdado. The food is good enough at a reasonable price. If you are in the neighborhood and feel like Japanese, it will likely meet your needs.

Standards may have dropped recently but this place is still a decent place to hang out and reminisce about the time when Samdado was the only sushi joint in town! The grilled eel is still my favourite here!

Though I had food with my family and friends. This place is not very kids friendly. You won't mind given the consistent quality and the hospitality of this place. If you like Japanese food and you are in Dhaka, you must visit this place.
