“Fabulous tepinyaki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

We had an amazing time and meal at Samurai. Initially we went for sushis but quickly gave up because of the price (I guess good fresh fish is hard to find in Cambodia). Their set of tepinyaki is THE good option. Set menu for 2 at 46 $ and the food was absolutely outstanding! The chef provides entertainment as she cooks for you and every mouth full is paradise. Go for it!

“Expensive but a bit unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

By Cambodian prices this place is expensive but for a night out away from the tourist strip of Sisowath it's a bit of fun. The food was excellent, service very attentive and teppenyaki is always a dining experience for me. The real attraction for me is the decor, a bit of bling and great over the top stuff that you see in Asia sometimes. When you walk in you walk straight onto a plexiglass floor with Koi Carp swimming around underneath, very cool. There is some great pieces of furniture scattered around, little zen like areas with pools and a piano in the corner that actually gets played. Methinks its the first time I have had Teppenyaki to live Piano! The bar is a real masterpiece also in the middle of the ground floor. So it's a little pricy (around $60) for two with drinks yet as a fun place to enjoy with company it's worth a look.

“Superb cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Great cocktails, top quality in fact. We didn't eat but the key thing here is that the chef comes to your table and cooks there. The other stunning thing is the fish which you see beneath your feet through the glass floor. Good service too, and very pleasant music played by a young lady.
