I booked a table as a special treat to celebrate my son's 8th birthday on Friday 15th August. I reserved a table weeks before hand and used the online booking form. I specifically mentioned it was a treat for my son and could they help make it special by a little gesture - perhaps tie a balloon to his chair... More

Horrible restaurant, poorly executed food, does Japanese food no favors. the biggest surprise is it's been open for so long. If you sit upstairs you can have a view of the chest freezer - with all the frozen fish in it and have the smell of stale cooking fat. Seriously this was poor - is it a northern thing? Why... More

I took my wife for a lovely meal. I was extremely impressed by the presentation and freshness of the sushi. I will definately return!

A return to Samsi had been long overdue and we were not disappointed. Same great food but different front of house reflecting the new management. On the night the choice of sashimi was very limited but I was impressed that that was down to "it not being fresh enough to serve - not good enough". We enjoyed karage chicken, tempura... More

We had the Samurai feast. Most of the food was really good - sushi and mixed tempura. The chicken was a bit tough and not too much flavour, and the steak a bit tough for ribeye.

Ok apart from my terrible puns, this place is amazing. I am a regular eater at Samsi, and normally come in with friends or sometimes solo. The food is great and the prices are very fair. The decor could do with either being more bright and exciting or more low key and atmospheric. It is a bit 'in between' at... More

Aliastair and co have certainly lifted the bar since they took over. We have always frequented the site but of late have notice a marked enhancement of service and quality nothing seems to much trouble and certainly service with a smile. Tonight I had my usual Temaki rolls followed by shashimi with some quality fat tuna and yellow tail exquisite... More

Tonight's meal at Samsi (Wilmslow) was a fantastic treat. Not in the quietly surprised fantastic, but in the stumbled upon a very, very special restaurant kind of way. An EXCEPTIONAL treat. And before I start, I write this with the disclaimer of being a past 'regular' and a fan of Samsi. This makes no difference whatsoever. Tonight was something COMPLETELY... More

The starter of sushi was not fresh - even thought it was prepared from the beginning. The noodles from the Ramen soup tasted like they were from packet. This was the same quality of food as if it were bought from a supermarket. Professionalism of staff needs looking at - waiter served me after just finishing a cigarette at the... More

Went for an impromptu meal out after we all got home late on a Monday evening. Wonderful, tasty and fresh sushi, hand rolls, sashimi, dumplings... We could have eaten the whole menu! Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Will definitely go back and would recommend.
