Great quality sushi, really top-notch. Everything is presented nicely on the plate, the sashimi was wonderful, we could really taste the quality and freshness. I'm sure anything you order will be amazing. We highly recommend this restaurant !

The food is prepared in front of you, with fresh products. Then you taste and you understand why it is that good ! A bit expensive, but justified.

We went there last week after hearing much praise, we did enjoy it. The food is very good and the staff are nice (with some with a great personality!). It is a bit pricey maybe but all the food is homemade and the sushi are very tasty. The only downside is that it is quite small inside although we were... More

We love Sushi and it's hard to find places where the fish are simply delicious and so fresh. I really recommend this place in Besançon. The staff is really nice (and our French is not the best) .The restaurant is small, more suitable for your Takeaway service so you should book a table if you want to sit and comer.excelente... More

We have friends who live close by to Besancon, and they recommended us to this place whilst on a short vacation. The restaurant is small, more suited to their takeaway service so you MUST book a table if you want to sit in and eat. Remember the French strict lunch times, this is not an all day establishment. Now to... More

The food is great and well priced. The service staff are very friendly and open to a quick chat. The manager was fabulous, chatting with the kids and making jokes.

I went to Samourai Sushis on a Thu night on a business trip and was attracted by the #1 ranking. The food tastes ok but is overpriced for Besançon. The friendliness of the waiter does not make up for his poor service: slow to take the order and slow to serve, no pickup of the finished plates/glass/bottle etc. Given that... More

We went for a lunch there based on all the top ratings. The service was not outstanding, quite slow and not remarkable as described in other ratings. Probably we just weren't lucky that day.. The prices are quite high for Besançon, where you can have very nice menus at lunch time for less money. The bathroom was quite shocking. It... More

We have been meaning to stop for lunch for a long long time but they are always full. Eventually we made a reservation and, wow, was it worth it. The staff are really nice (and our French is not the best). The food was mouth-wateringly delicious. There is a large choice of dishes from delicate to spicy. We ordered more... More
