Great food accompanied by great service

This is an old time favorite, whenever I am back in Escazu for a visit I try to stop here, don't miss the teppanyaki and make sure to reserve in advance. The sushi is also great and fresh

The service is always great we never had an issue of any kind. This time around from 5 dishes we... More

We went with some friend for a late dinner on a Sunday night, was one of the few places that was still open, but was a good surprise. The food was really good and the sushi options were huge, additionally the prices are ok, a place for a good fast sushi dinner.

Not the best Sushi in Costa Rica but one of the best. I ordered express and the service was very good on a Saturday Night.

Without the extra effort, Japanese food has a tendency to transform into fast food. That was my experience in Samurai - all the ingredients appear to be there but it is not a "Japanese" experience. The sushi boat had an over-representation of the US re-invention of a delicate cuisine with its oversize California and other rolls. Salmon and snapper sashimi... More

We are coming to this restaurant at least every other month for the past years. Fodd and Service is great, however the greatness has it price! Food in comparison to North America or Mexico is indeed quite pricy!

Food was good but the waiters had no sense of service. The restaurant was empty except for my husband and I and another gentleman in another table. The 3 or 4 waiters were chatting no stop, at normal voice level about anything and everything. We had to wait until one of them would accidentally remove their eyes from their electronics.... More
