Went on a Saturday evening with my father. Service was very polite and professional and food equally perfect. Would definitely recommend this place. The sushi was great and was a very pleasant experience all round for a reasonable price!

Arrived at 8 pm to find an empty restaurant. Furnishings and ambiance depressing. There were bottles of soy sauce and tealights (Japanese?) on the tables. Green tea ordered. Took ages so asked waiter where it was. He said that they were boiling the kettle. Ordered a platter of sushi, sashimi and nigiri. A young lady, standing behind a fish counter... More

Half of us ordered the samurai feast and as a result the other half of the group had to wait while we ate our numerous starters but otherwise a good meal.

The Samurai feast has been on the menu since our opening night 23 years ago. Always a fantastic choice. All our most popular dishes served one after another to share. We can't recommend it enough and are delighted to read that it still hits the spot. Thank you for your feedback. from the Samsi team More

I have driven past this place dozens of times and never even noticed it! Once spotted, they had me at the word 'Japanese'. We went tonight, and cannot believe how fabulous the food was. We ordered a selection of items, ribs, sushi, sashimi, hand roll and a crispy chicken starter. Too much food but it was delicious! Staff friendly and... More

The quality of the food just gets better at Samsi Wilmslow. My children don't want pizza anymore they want Samsi!

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to support us. We have enjoyed watching children dine with us, grow up, then bring in their first girlfriend or boyfriend. We haven't been open quite long enough for many of our child visitors to bring in their children but it will probably happen soon now. We've been in Wilmslow 23 years. More

Dinner was gorgeous here and the staff were friendly and very helpful. We had sashimi salmon and tuna to start which was beautiful, so tender and tasty. We also had tempura prawns , yummy. Japanese curry and a noodle dish with sauce. Both gorgeous. Dessert was tempura bananas with ginger ice cream............absolute heaven. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a great place and we are lucky to have it. You can choose from Japanese seating style close to the floor or more upright seating. The food is great; well presented and fresh. Good value for Japanese food,book at weekends

The service was fine; attentive and unobtrusive, and the food arrived in good time. the wine list was very acceptable in the context of what are now considered normal prices in restaurants; the Jarrah shiraz went down very well. However, chopsticks notwithstanding, there must be some question marks in respect of the authenticity of the cuisine. Two of our party... More

Seafood sukiyaki is a cooked at the table in Japan. We opened 23 years ago and did cook it at the table. Maybe we should reconsider this option now customers are more familiar with Japanese style cooking. We acknowledge the comment about the prawns and have fed back to the chefs. Thank you. More
