Fun and good food

Went for an 85th birthday with a group of 12. Service was stupendous, food was great and ample. Would return for a special event.

Took family here for dinner prior to Amy Grant concert on Sunday night. Took twenty minutes for drink order, and ordered tempura appetizer and meals. After 30 minutes appetizer was served, which was very good, but after 55 minutes no meals and had to leave. During this period, three other tables simply got up and left for lack of service....

Perfect place for a birthday party. I haven't been to this place in years. We just forgot about it. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the chefs on the hibachi grill were incredibly entertaining. Perfect place for larger groups. We had a great time and definitely will go back. I highly recommend.

I saw this post from another review of Samurai on Yelp, and I TOTALLY agree: "The yumyum sauce is now yuckyuck. I don't know why they changed it, but it wasn't a change for the good." We used to LOVE they yum yum sauce at Samurai, but when we ate there this week.....the first think we noticed is the yum... More

My son goes to George Mason University. As a result, we always come to Samurai. It's a fun meal and allows us to catch up. He leaves full and I leave with a few bucks in my pocket! The service and food are consistently good. I've never had to wait for a table. Tried and true!

We go once a month and take visitors from foreign countries who have never had Japanese. Sushi is good. Kids love the fire and cooking in front of them.

This restaurant is in a strip mall that is currently being renovated. Be patient as parking is a bit tight. This place is also located right across the street from George Mason University so there is a college influence. We've been to this place 4 times now and have had good service and good food each of the 4 times.... More

Please note that this rating is based purely upon service since I didn't get the opportunity to eat any of their food. I visited on Valentine's Day after attending the George Mason basketball game. We wanted to try something new, but it just wasn't meant to be. It was obvious that they were understaffed right after we were seated. We... More

The choice of Hibachi, regular Asian menu, or Sushi Bar makes this restaurant very attractive. Plus being just down the street makes it a favorite. The Chef was entertaining and skilled in the preparation and presentation of the Hibachi meal. The normal wide choice of entrees to be cooked, plus the new to us, addition of fried noodles was a...
