Sushi heaven

One of the best places for sushi at Dhaka. Food quality is great, specially I love their complimentary salad and misho soup with pickles. Most importantly waiters are very well mannered.

The waiting staff were on the whe attentive and the food came pretty fast after we ordered. There were a lot of mosquitoes in the room, but they kindly supplied us with... More

Totally amazing japanese food at a reasonable price. Wine is also served, some what surreptitiously. Only thing they need work on is their lightning (too bright)/general atmosphere .... All in all a fantastic (couple of meals) ....

Been there in my previous trip 4 years ago several time. After 4 years I've seen the same friendly staff and got pleased to know that food continues with same quality. Have been there multiple times to have the sushi and Sashimi mix platter.

A tasty Japanese-Korean restaurant. Excellent tempura. A fun selection of sushi choices. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed by soggy soba noodles. It was the only wrong note on an otherwise great meal.

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
