Delicious food and attentive staff!

Thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful steak with peppercorn sauce here. The food was fresh and the meat seemed more like fillet albeit on the menu as sirloin - very tender, cooked just as I wanted and the sweets are beautiful with a real wow factor - go and give it a try if you are in the Coral Bay area... read more

I visited samisen with a friend for dinner. Enen though I am not a fan of Japanese food, this restaurant made me reconsider my preferences. It is an excellent place, with good food, really good service and an amazing show. If you are in Paphos, visiting samisen is a must.

I visited Samisen with my boyfriend and his family between Christmas and New Year and had a hilarious afternoon. We had a 4 and 6 year old with us and watching them enjoy the show put on by the Teppenyaki chef kind of made it but I'd be lying if I said I didn't thoroughly enjoy it too! The starters... More

Spoiled by other sushi restaurants in Paphos so this was too far to go for "ok sushi". The Teppanyaki tables have two grills so it was a little irritating that the restaurant was empty and they filled the other half of our table with an unnecessarily loud Teppanyaki chef. I don't think it was a good night for all involved.... More

We made a mistake six years ago. The first Japanese restaurant we tried in Cyprus was Wabi Sabi. We felt it was good enough that we did not need to try the competition. Now that Wabi Sabi is no more, it is clear that that was a bad judgement call. Samisen, out of season, late in November, is considerably better... More

The service from the Team at Samisen is excellent from the very first greeting to leaving. They also have a sense of humour which really fits the ambience of this place and really adds to the experience. Food is so tasty , especially the Beef Tenderloin with onions which was so tender and juicy. Everything we tasted over the 2... More

Never go back we always say. Often it is never as good as you remember. Samisen is the exception that proves my rule. We have been every year now for 3 years. What makes it such a great night? Our boys love it and funny but the more the y know what is going to happen the better they love... More
