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.

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

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. Was told it was going to be another 30 minute wait because the online orders take a long time "because they go to Manchester first". Who invented this system and what kind of poor excuse is that? Won't... More

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

Ordered a take away at 1930 on Saturday night. £90 order in total, was told it would be £5 to deliver. We said we would not order if they were going to charge for delivery. They agreed to deliver to us. We paid £50 on card and agreed to pay the difference in cash upon delivery. We were told we... More

A little harsh as only £50 was paid for a delivery of delicious, fresh food worth almost £90. We wouldn't dream of charging you for an item that was missing from the order but any request for redelivery of a missing item that hadn't been paid for, could not be accepted. Having said this, we are genuinely sorry for the... More

Thank you. We are thrilled you noticed our refurb and delighted that children are still enjoying Japanese cuisine. We are celebrating 21 years in Wilmslow this year. As one of the oldest and most established restaurants in Wilmslow, many of the children who came in when we first opened are now choosing Samsi for first dates. Japanese food is packed... More

wonderful that not everybody is in a big rush. We welcome our customers for the whole evening. We don't opt to turn over the tables and hope our customers will take their time with us. We love it when customers relax. We cherish our serene customers, especially ones who take the trouble to be kind enough to give us a... More

For a guy who wouldn't know Japanese food if it hit him I was persuaded to give it a whirl . Fantastic food and great value . Crispy chicken curry was less than £7 and it was Wilmslow . My colleagues loved it too .

Thank you for taking the trouble to review us. We feel sad when 99% of happy customers don't write a thing yet 99% of unhappy customers do find the motivation. We appreciate the effort you went to. We haven't increased many of our prices over the past 21 years. We are glad it remains a nice surprise that Japanese cuisine... More

I went with three colleagues and expected decent Japanese food. Having been to Wagamama and Tampopo recently, I expected a small Japanese restaurant in the suburb of Wilmslow to be better than the 'chains'. We were wrong! The service was slow and poor. The Gyoza were worse than the supermarket ones. Worst of all was the Ramen - The noodles... More

We have taken your comments very seriously. It is a shame that only one dish was sampled by your party because we are sure you would've enjoyed our crispy chicken curry. We looked at the restaurants you 5 star rated and although you can get teriyaki burgers in Japan we aren't sure they'd hit in Wilmslow. After your comment we... More
