This two storied simple restaurant offers the most tasty Japanese food in Dhaka! And the price is really affordable.The perfect value for money. Service is great. There are small rooms for privacy too! It can cater the needs for family, friends, couples....The no. 1 place to taste Japanese cuisine in Dhaka!

My Dutch colleagues and I have had dinner a number of times during our visits to Dhaka. I find the quality of food has deteriorated and prices have shot up. Increase in price would have justified if they maintained the standards they started out with. The service personnel have taken for granted that customers will come even if they are... More

A nice, cosy restaurant at the heart of Gulshan Circle Two. Good Japanese foods with move presentation. I went their with some Japanese guests. They told us that the dishes are authentic and they like the place.

Popular because you can get beer…not often can you order beer in Restaurants in Bangladesh. I haven't dared to try the sushi. It just hasn't looked fresh and appetizing when others have ordered. Definitely do not order the vegetable tempura….you will get more french fries than anything else. The teriyaki dishes are dull. Overall, I enjoyed the company of people... More

In a city where there are limited Japanese options, Samdado just doesn't cut it. The location is great, however, the food is average. The service - below average. If you are looking for REAL Japanese food, this is not the place. However, for a quick meal and mediocre ambience, this place does the job.

Best sushi and sashimi place in Dhaka. I like the environment. However I think they need to do something about the limited space. I like their complimentary salad. However disappointed that have stopped serving the complimentary miso soup. There squid and prawn tempura are something to die for. Bentoboxes are also great. A great value for money if you compare... More

Started off as a high end sushi place that taught many Bangalis how to use a chop stick. Now its more or less a drinking spot for many. Their food is still good but the environment does not have the charm that it once did.
