My husband and I noticed a Facebook ad which told us that Samurai was now offering AYCE sushi, so we went. For $21.95 each we ate an absolutely ridiculous amount of sushi and the best part was that all of it was very tasty and made to order. The atmosphere was awesome and the service was friendly. In short, wow.... More

Food was terrible, soup had no flavor. Red sauce tasted like stale applesauce, soup tasted like water. The showmanship of the cook was poor as well. Would much rather go to Jo Tos where it's dirty to at least get good food.

I ordered the Teriyaki Chicken, and it had great flavor. I also ordered the gyoza as an appetizer. This ran just under $20. Nothing to write home about, pretty average really, but I would eat there again.

The atmosphere was great and the food was yummy !!! The guy that cooked our food on the hibachi grill was so funny and entertaining and the waiter was very nice and helpful. Dinner is alittle expensive, so try going at lunch for a cheaper option.

We had a group of 4 and it had been quite a while since having the hibachi experience for each of us. The Chef did a terrific job of cooking and entertaining. The food was quite good and plentiful. The sushi was a pleasant surprise, as good sushi is hard to find. We even met new friends during dinner. All... More

We had dinner here and had the Hibachi grill. We found the cook to be excellent, friendly and funny. So we all evenly ordered between steak and seafood. Good food overall and the experience was entertaining. Was not the best Hibachi experience I ever had but was good considering the location(restaurants in Florida generally aren't solid experiences). We don't touch... More

My girlfriend and I were probably the last customers to enter on Saturday night about 2 hours before closing. I thought the food was tasty and plentiful. The steak and shrimp appeared to be fresh and the appropriate color. I initially blamed poor service on the late time of our meal, but after reading other reviews, I'm not so sure... More

We always come to Samurai for sushi. It has always been good until now. We normally order the dinner sushi deluxe - The fish on top of the rice was so thin that you could see the rice. The tuna roll was made with dark tuna - sitting too long in the showcase? Normally you can taste the difference in... More

We've been here a couple times with groupons and the food is always good. The hibachi cooks are good, but the waiters aren't really good. I don't like having to ask for a refill. The fried ice cream is really good I was surprised.
