“Excellent sushi at a fair price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

My extended family went to this restaurant in the late evening and at at the sushi bar side that is completely separate from the grill which appeared to be set up like your typical Japanese steak house. It wasn't that busy and the service was very fast. The wait staff wasn't all that helpful with the menu so you pretty much have to know what you would like from prior experience. Curiously my father tried to talk with the Asian wait staff in Japanese but not a word was understood. The food was fresh, well prepared and the standard sushi choices were there - California roll, volcano, spider, catepillar but nothing out of the ordinary or exception. Prices were pretty standard too - about 10-15 per roll. $9.95 for the California roll. I think this is excellent for New Mexico.

“Mother's Day unsatisfactory service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2010

I took my wife and mother-in-law for Mother's day to Samurai Grill on Montgomery street in Albuquerque. We had a reservation for 5:00 pm and were seated. No one had taken our drink order after about 17 minutes had gone by and we had to ask one of the staff to wait on us. The Chef did not arrive at our grill table until about 6:00 PM. This appears to me that the staff did not care if we came back to the restaurant.

“The ambience is not your...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2008

The ambience is not your typical Japanese restaurant-very noisy, food is very average, and they have sports TV flat screens everywhere, and loads of screaming children....not pleasant
