Buffet is as you order - Not big bins of food people breathe on. Items made to order small portions however you order as many as you like. I will be back. Food piping hot and fresh. Excellent value.

I've eaten here a few times. Food is good service is good for the most part, but the place is dirty. We were here again this week and I noticed the grime build up on the floors in the corners. Not very pleasing to look at. I'll probably eat here again but it's definitely a dirty dive with good food.... More

Visited here for dinner. Probably some of the better quality sushi I've had in Guelph. Good, fast service. Decent variety. Cheaper price for AYCE dinner than other places like W sushi and Cherry Blossom. I really liked the green onion beef rolls, and the healthy dessert option of mixed fruit. Would eat here again!

A lot of new sushi options have appeared since I first reviewed Samura, and we went back yesterday for lunch so it's a good time to update my review. Time has not been kind to this little place... no change at all to appearances, which is looking run-down. We ordered a la carte and food was OK and fresh but... More

We visited samura for a second time after thoroughly enjoying their food on our first visit. We were sat at a table, given menus and water, and the staff walked away without asking if we wanted anything else to drink. Shortly before we placed our order a loud hoarking noise was heard coming from a staff member, which was a... More

By the location and simple exterior one could easily pass by this establishment. Restaurant is plunked in the parking lot of a motel. Inside the restaurant is simple but the service is quick and food was delicious and prices good.

One of my worst experiences in the Guelph, KW area! Horrible staff! And horrible quality food! Never experienced such terrible staff attitudes like this before. No greeting and first thing to point out is to tell you if adults get all u can eat the kids can't share anything unless they also do the all you can eat. The bad... More

Never go here...I waited over 30 minutes for the first item from the list of stuff I ordered and it had avocado on it which I had asked for none. I was the only one in at the time

So after a few meals here it is better than my sushi, but during the meal not before not after while we were eating the waitress came over and did not ask how was the food but directly asked my 10 year old daughter her age, embarrassing my daughter in front of us and our guests. This was to find... More

We stopped in for a quick meal, and had miso soup and several types of vegetarian hand rolls and maki. The price was good and the food arrived fresh and quickly.
