It has been at least 3 years since I last visited Samurai. I am glad I did. The sashimi was excellent - very fresh and large pieces. The choice is rather limited, but the fish is excellent. The vegetables tempura was also excellent.

A delightful evening with superb chef Sergio, who made an excellent introduction to the preparation of food. Their quality of product they offer is exquisite, the price is commensurate with the quality. The attention of your staff has no failure and celebrate with special details to their customers. I recommend this restaurant for the whole family.

One of my favorites; food is cooked at table and always great. Portions are plentiful. Though a little pricey, it is a good value as left-overs taste really good too.

Came here for my birthday- nearly 1 hour wait on a Thursday night but killed some time at the nice bar near the entrance. Food was very good and consistent with the Benihana chain. Atmosphere is lively!

The food is consistently good. It is a great outing and you're always entertained. It can be quite busy over the weekend so be patient! You always know what you're getting , meat and veggies are yummy. Great service, consistent quality food.
