Wednesday nights are the best ! Up to 3 specialty rolls for $20. Almost too good to be true. My favorite place to eat sushi. The Hibachi side has great food too, just hard pressed to ever say no to sushi.

Our sushi place in the West DSM area. Restaurant is clean, nicely decorated, and the service is fast and with a smile. The choices are excellent, with the Iowa roll leading the pack.

Really enjoyed dinner here. The filet and scallops were delicious. The cook put extra garlic and eggs into the fried rice which made that delicious also. Cook was very funny and skilled at his job. The only bad thing was that service was very slow. It took 2 hours on a Tuesday night so only go if you have the... More

We just had a very nice lunch. We ordered four Rolls, the Ichiban, Fire Stone, Superstar and Christmas. We tried the Crab Rangoon and Fried Soft shelled crab for appetizers. The Miso and seafood soups were average. Then finally we had the tempura cheesecake. The rolls came on one plate and were very well presented and tasted great. The appetizers... More

The food was amazing! However our chef was probably better than the food! We had Gabriel for a chef. He was hilarious! When he was cooking the eggs for the fried rice, he started singing "Drop It Like It's Hot". Definitely coming back!

My wife and I went to lunch at Samurai and had a great experience. We were immediately seated and drink orders were taken. We had really good miso soup which came with our lunch specials. I had the sushi special and the rolls were fresh and tasty. My wife ordered fro the hibachi menu and it food was equally good.... More

I have eaten here on several occasions while visiting DSM. The sushi is always good. Tried the UFC roll this time (which is steak) and it was not my favorite. The other 3 rolls we tried were great. I want to mention the service. Our waitress, Angela, did a great job taking care of us. We also had a couple... More

I had used my debit card at this restaurant Oct 24, 2015. The following Tuesday I noticed a different amount had been deducted from my checking than the amount I had signed for. I went to the bank got a copy of the actual deduction. I also had my receipt. I spoke with the manager and she said these higher... More

We were all kind of disappointed....3 families met for an early supper (4:30 PM) Two of the children, ages 9 and 11 were super excited about the anticipated fun that usually goes on at a restaurant known for it's presentation. Unfortunately the presentation NEVER happened. The food was OK but nothing special....asked for steak to be cooked med. rare but... More
