If you are willing to wait all day for your food then okay but we don't enjoy waiting 3 hours for our food. The waitress never checks on you and regardless of How busy the resturant is you will be garunteed to wait for your food for over an hour. Worst service we have every had and every person who...

Enjoyed the Cubby Roll. Probably one of their better rolls. The other options we tried have been average. Service is hit and miss. First visit was okay. Latest visit was HORRIBLE. Service took forever... and ever... and then when food finally arrived, it was wrong... so we waited some more.... and waited. Probably won't be back for a while as... More

We met a friend here on a recent Wednesday per her recommendation to try Three Samurai that evening. If you want to give it a try, I would recommend getting reservations to help with the wait. Even though this restaurant's address is on the Coralville Strip, the actual restaurant entrance is in the back of the building. The rolls we... More

I've been here multiple times and usually order the Miso steak....... heaven! Seating is pleasant... I like that you can have quiet rooms to sit in closed off to enjoy friends and or family or for a quiet romantic dinner.

Really like this place for the regular menu and Sushi. The habichi is also good if that is what you want. Very good staff here. Price for the food is a value here also.

We waited 15 minutes to see if we were ever even talked to and NO! Not even I will be right back. So we went somewhere else. The sushi is not even that good it's just cheap. Be ready to wait forever....And this is not even the first time this has happened! Don't waste your money, go somewhere else.

Sushi choices are varied and each is outstanding. Miso soup and asian salads are very good. Service was great.

My wife and I enjoy eating at Three Samurai whenever we are in Iowa City. The food is very good, I especially love the Pee Wee Crazy Roll. Only downside is that the service is extremely slow. Plan on at least an hour to get your sushi from when you order. The food helps to make up for the wait.

The six of us had a 7:30 reservation for a tepanyaki table to celebrate a family occasion on a Thursday. By 8:30 we were seated and before too much longer even had some miso soup. Around 9:00 our cook appeared, took our orders and left again. Fortunately we are good at entertaining ourselves - it might have been wiser to... More

I came here with a friend on a bustling Friday night. We were able to be seated after a very short wait. We ordered the shrimp tempura, a few sushi rolls, and a salmon entree to be shared. The sushi and appetizer came out quickly and were delicious! Some of the sushi even ended up being cheaper than what was... More
