I rate this restaurant Very Good not because of the food or ambience, but because it is a very good restaurant for kids with families. It is noisy, the place is simple, there are no windows and you must go directly to dry cleaning after eating as clothes get impregnated with the food odor. Tables are for 8 people and... More

The Samurai chefs are always great entertainment for all ages. It has become a family tradition especially when the grandchildren visit. Never a disappointing lunch or dinner.The staff is also excellent. Saturday and Sunday evening is very busy, so go early on these nights and have patients as the wait(maybe 25 minutes or so) is worth the wait. Reservations are... More

Our family tradition includes dinner at Samurai. What a great way to include entertainment with your dinner. We all had more than enough to eat and I brought home a doggie bag!

If you've been to this kind of restaurant you know the drill. So, just the facts: glum dining room; the chef's "tricks" were very limited and boring; the miso soup was tepid and tasted awful; the sesame crust on the tuna (cooked properly rare) was a blanket of raw seeds; the noodles were so overcooked that they were mush. Nobody... More

I personally do not like the fact that the tables hold up to 8 people and the employees try to fit all 8 in a table. I understand that filling the tables are good... More
