Samourai opens quite late, but it's no wonder as it is after work hours - which probably attracts a better audience. Overall, there's a plenty to choose from. If you don't mind overpaying it might be worth it, but if you have been to Japan,...More

It used to be good, though always pricey (10 EUR for a small miso soup is ridiculous, considering it's cost value, I mean, come on). But the more we go, the more we get disappointed. There is a problem of little flies wandering around over...More
