A last minute booking for a restaurant turned into a marvellous surprise. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. The fish was so fresh it tasted of the sea. Every experience of Samsi was brilliant and I cannot recommend it enough.

A couple of weeks after our last visit we decided to try samsi again, hoping it would live up to our previous experience. It absolutely did! Alastair prepared for us another fabulous sushi & sashimi platter. The sushi was beautifully prepared and presented, and the sashimi just melted in my mouth - wonderful. Tash was perfect front of house (again!)... More

I came into Samsi just for a quick snack before moving on, but was so struck by the variety and quality of the sushi that I ended up staying much longer than I had planned and eating a lot more. Irresistible!

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

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
