Low cost. Great food. So different to every where else. Great if you don't want to spend a fortune but are looking for something different.

Great little back alley Japanese restaurant. Every time we visit the Gold Coast we've had at least one meal here. The food is fresh and authentic. Not many options for little kids though.

I was looking for some Japanese cuisine and found this place listed on Tripadvisor. I had a combination of tempura and yakatori chicken which was served on rice with miso soup. Price was very good and under $11. I also enjoyed a Japanese draught beer which was sold to me at happy hour price even though happy hour had passed.

Just off the main night club strip in Surfers; Samurais is a hidden treasure. The staff were welcoming and helpful from the moment we entered. The food was perfect, with too many dishes to recommend.

Back 6 months later and the food was awesome!! We simply ordered the entire entree menu, small, tasty and well prepared. The price was fantastic and under $80 for 4 people with beers.
