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

We went there twice with kids. They were not as much into the food as into the show that our grill chef made in front of us. i enjoyed it both, the food was very good quality and prepared fresh. Quantities are huge, so for a family of 5 we barely finished a portion for 3 people
