Description: SAMSI has been trading for 19 years in April, specialising in Japanese cuisine and food stuff. It began as an award-winning restaurant, which quickly expanded into four different cities in the North west of England. In response to customer request we began importing and selling ingredients in retail sizes while continuing to search Japan for the highest quality restaurant ingredients.

Me and my boyfriend came here last Monday (5/01/2015) for our first ever Japanese meal! We are both vegetarians and they had a lot of selection for us. Everything is so original and even the drinks are unique. There was two male waiters on that night that were both extremely polite and helpful. Would definitely recommend and I'll be going... More

Thank you for your review. Virtually every dish we serve can be offered as a vegetarian option. As all our sauces and dishes are made fresh. More

No expert on Japanese food but the food here is excellent. Don't miss the tempura (batter) dishes. And the sushi is excellent. Staff are a bit hit and miss. Very courteous but a bit clueless. It would have been nice for them to point out what was on each plate but they didn't. Also they served one dish about 5... More

Mid week, no booking but hell my family and I were hanging out for Sushi! It was packed which after reading all the negative reviews surprised me. There was no chance we were going to get a table downstairs so we opted for a quick drink in the pub across the road while they prepared our table upstairs. Sitting on... More

Thank you. Our reviews are all organic. The proportion of happy (versus unhappy) customers who review any business is generally disproportionate.. We hope by leaving the natural process this will attract customers who genuinely appreciate good, freshly prepared Japanese food. We are one of the oldest restaurants in Wilmslow. Our chefs have been with us almost 22 years but we... More

Recently moved to the Wilmslow area and very pleased to have this little gem right on my door step. Having visited here on a number of occasions the food is always excellently prepared and severed promptly by the friendly staff. My favourite dishes include the reserve California rolls, chicken katsu curry and salmon teriyaki. Even if sushi isn't your thing... More

We would like to stick to the warm burgundy decor for this season. Any suggestions, on preferred spring colours, would be gratefully received if it feels dark in April cherry blossom season. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. It is kind of you to take the time to review us positively. Thank you. More

Having read the reviews on here about Samsi WIlmslow we decided to go. We agree with what most of the other people who have reviewed this restaurant have said; The food is really good but the service is not at the same standard. To be honest this didn't bother me because the people serving were friendly but maybe a little... More

Wow a Japanese restaurant so close to home. What a treat or we thought. First impressions. Not very well laid out. Decor did jump out as being Japanese. Could have been a lot nicer. Food was really nice and we'll presented. But the service and lack of interest by the people serving the food. Really really poor. A massive let... More

On a positive note, We are glad the food quality was still good. We get much much more defensive about our food because we have had chefs in our company for 21 years. The ingredients we source and use can not be bettered and we hope our dishes continue to be worth the wait. The service at Samsi has never... More

This restaurant is tucked away by a green near to Wilmslow station. It is a 'little gem' though with a comprehensive menu of all that is Japanese cuisine. The Sushi etc is prepared in the dining area for viewing but hot dishes are done upstairs. The decor is modern and comfortable but the atmosphere could be a little more cosy.... More

Ordered a sushi dinner online for my wife who was overnight in the hospital. I Arrived for pickup after waiting 45 minutes.

We are so sorry. The restaurant was totally full. We are approaching the busiest weekends of the year. On this rare occasion, were unable to cope with the demand. The phone was ringing off the hook and even our precious regular customers were unable to get their usual favourites last weekend. We have to hold our hands up and admit... More
