Lunch is great. Its a Chinese or Thai option that comes with soup, and egg roll. Very reasonable prices for these plate options. The food is consistently good. Pick your heat 0-5. Quick and hot. Ms. Vicki is very good with my kiddos and they LOVE coming here. The place is clean. They make sure you water is full and... More

Seeing the good reviews on this restaurant made the family want to try this place. The sushi was average at best so I was glad to only pay happy hour price. I have had better food from our local Chinese take out place. Think twice before you eat here their are better restaurants around.

We had dinner there last night. My sesame chicken with all white meat was made not spicy at my request and contained large pieces of chicken. My husband had the Pad Thai and said that was really good. Both of us brought home enough in boxes to have lunch today. Very friendly waitress and good service.

Family, friends, & husband & I have gone there for, yikes, 30 years...was a great business lunch, as Vicki can get you in, served, & back to work on time. Food is great, consistent, & plenty for take-home. Thanks for years of reliability & good service.

Happy hour is 5pm to 6pm, great app prices. Gyoza tasted a lot like home Japanese gyoza! Enjoyed the entrees too. Yum! Fast, fresh and friendly. No issues here, best!

I go mostly to try their sushi. However, it seems they change their sushi every time. I can go one time and the favors are astounding and then the next time the favors are different. Aside from sushi, their food is excellent. If you get a chance to go try to get seated and served by Deidra. I have been... More

I've been going to Sambi for five years and it is my favorite lunch spot in town. Vikki is a great server and the service is quick and thorough. They pay close attention to their customers even when it's busy. The food is good quality, comes out fast and you get a large portion. The lunch specials are around $10... More

We ordered takeout for five people and everyone raved about the quality of the food. Best we have ever had. Can't wait to go back tomorrow night and dine in restaurant. Very pleasant staff made ordering easy and answered any questions.

This restaurant is relatively new. We visited in March 2011. We overheard the waiter mention to a patron that it has been open 4 months.
