A quiet place. People were very humble and nice. We took, Sushi combo, Prawn Tempura. The tempura was so good. And Sushi of cuttlefish and prawn was good.

I often go there to meet some friends who are craving for "Japanese" food. The food is average and not very authentic, sometimes it doesn't look fresh. I think they have to watch for their quality for it is not that cheap. The place is OK, good parking and location and staffs are nice and accommodating.

Tempura was not crispy. Overall authenticity and freshness not there. Interiors are also old and the place needs a refurbishment.

Love the complementary peanuts. Had veggie sushi and loved it too. Udong was passable. Nice staff, convenient location and parking.

Since it was my first time in an exclusive Japanese restaurant, so we thought of trying something else other than sushi. I feel you need to acquire the taste for Sushi before you can start liking it. This Japanese restaurant is located right opposite Four Points by Sheraton in the Gulshan area. The ambiance isn't very much to talk about.... More

I have just to back to the hotel after a very nice dinner at Samdado. The sushi was excellent. The chicken dumplings was equally good. Fast service, nice clean restaurant - a little basic. Fast service.

We had dinner here early April and it was a pleasant surprise. Good service, high quality food at a reasonable price, for restaurants such as this in Dhaka. We had a mixed menu but the sushi was top of the list, good variety and reasonable size servings. Nothing to complain about this place at all and I'd recommend it to... More

Really yummy food - good spicy tuna rolls and tempura. A good place to come with friends and share dishes. We had a private room which was nice and the staff were still pretty attentive considering. If you want decent Japanese and don't want to spend a fortune at Izumi this is your place.
