“Neighborhood favorite, where we go when the family screams SUSHI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Great place for sushi, Our favorite for family dinners out.

Easy on and off Highway 50 at Hazel Ave. Never been disappointed in years of going there. Reliable service, always fresh fish, variety of traditional Japanese dishes besides sushi and rolls

Across the freeway from the Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Sushi at Winding Way and Hazel.
Mikuni is also excellent but has better "press" and a bigger following so it is always crazy crowded at peak dining hours.

Samurai is never as crowded and equal on service and quality...and a little less expensive, more casual, than Mikuni .

Try it...

“Best sushi Bar in the area...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This sushi bar is great for any occasion.... The atmosphere is great and the service is very good too. I come here a lot with family, friends or even by myself for lunch! If you have a bigger group you can order your sushi rolls in the boat! Wow! Plum wine is my choice for a drink there but they have many other options as well. Big screen TVs for watching sports near the bar area. There's a nice Comfort Inn and Suites hotel in the same parking lot.

“Great Sushi and Japanese right off Hwy 50.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is one of the families favorite restaurants in the Sacramento metro area. Fresh Sushi with many many choices, along with other great Japanese foods such as Teriyaki, Tempura, and Udon dishes. There are 2 large menu's, one of them is a Sushi menu; the other covers the cooked foods. I almost always get the Sushi Special, which is different everyday, and on display as you enter the restaurant. At lunch it is only $10, and get you 2 rolls, some nigiri, and soup or salad. For dinner it's $16, but you get both Soup and salad. an amazing deal. They also offer a bento box special every day. Like any Sushi place, if you are hungry and order off the menu, it can get expensive. One of my daughters loves the "Baked Scallop", which is served in a large shell. It's sliced cooked scallops over rice, with a very rich sauce, very filling. the other likes the teriyaki chicken bento box.
Take a sweater or jacket with you, the inside of the restaurant tends to be on the cool side.
We always sit in a booth, but there are plenty of seats at the Sushi bar. There is a small liguor bar as you enter the restaurant, and they have happy hour specials, but I've never checked it out.

“Good for groups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Twelve of us went in to this restaurant, all had different items. Not one of us had a bad meal. One said the rolls were excellent, our combination plates were very good. Food was really good, service was really good, wait staff attentive without being intrusive. Had a $40 groupon - well worth the price! We will be back.

“Yummy Sushi Boat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a terrific sushi restaurant if you have a group or large family. The sushi boats are beautiful and delicious. Pleasant service and reasonable prices. This is my daughter's favorite place to celebrate her birthdays. We always order a sushi boat with a either a selection of rolls or with assorted nigiri and sashimi. For those who prefer traditional Japanese entrees rather than sushi, they will not be disappointed. Portions are generous and freshly prepared. They will also prepare party trays for take out.
