Always a nice place to eat at

When my wife and I feel like sushi we will generally drive 25 miles to Samurai. There are plenty other good places nearby but Samurai always offers consistently good food and service at reasonable prices.

Each January, the family gathers here for a joint birthday celebration. The food is excellent but sometimes the service is a little slow. This year the servers were on top of it, but there were so many people in the restaurant that the sushi chefs got a little behind. Still an overall wonderful experience. Float your boat!

Classic Sushi location, nice presentation service was a little lacking but overall very good, its a little on the high price side for sushi but the quality was very good.

I had not been to Samurai Sushi in several years but decided to go due to a Groupon ad. I am not a sushi fan but do like cooked Japanese food such as tempura and teriyaki. They do not have your typical Bento box but the food served is very similar to what you would get in one. We were... More

We've been eating here for years and find the food consistently good and reasonably priced. The miso soup has better flavor than that of most other Japanese restaurants, a good indicator. Sushi is fresh and delicious.

We have visited this place over the years for solid and standard sushi. But the place looks tired and so does the staff. When the bathrooms look bad and especially when there's no soap in the bathrooms (men's and women's), I do not tend to return. Sorry to say....

Wow. We sauntered in here last night. The toss up was beteweem thai and sushi. We ordered th big boat for 5 of us. The rolls were amazing. The miso soups and Salad perfect and out served friendly and helpful. The price was overall fairly reasonable and we got full very quickly. The chicken teriaki appetizers were also very tasty....

Chose Samurai based upon Trip Advisor reviews and was very pleased. Meal began with complimentary Edamame, then I ordered a couple of Maki Rolls based upon the Sushi chef's recommendation. Double-eagle was fantastic and highly recommended. Would definitely eat here again if travel brings me back to this area.

A restaurant manager once told me that it is better to be consistently good that occasionally great. My family and I have visited Samurai Sushi just off the Hazel off ramp of Hwy 50 many times over the years and watched it change and evolve, and we have yet to have a bad experience there! It has always lived up... More

My husband, kids and I were visiting family in the area and we all decided to eat at Samurai Sushi. I love Sushi and this place did not disappoint. We got 5 rolls which, I cannot remember all of them but we did get the Y2K and the Crazy Monkey. We loved both and the other 3. The rolls were... More
