Ensure you book as very popular. Good selection of food even if you are not a Japanese food fan. Great experience, reasonable value for money. A definite must do for and entertaining evening of participation games (if you want to that is)

Had lamb kleftiko and Cyprus meatballs as mains and both excellent. Good size portion of tender lamb. The meatballs were lighter than expected and tasty with a deep rich tomato sauce. Kids pizzas were a little over done and the service, although very friendly was a tiny bit slow. I saw the mixed grill and got food envy. Can't comment... More

Well what can I say, being our third night here and looking for a restaurant that could not only offer us excellent food but also the atmosphere to entertain three children (aged 4,11,12) I scoured trip advisor for reports for somewhere local which could give us all that we needed ..... and guess what we landed on a real gem...

I have been to Samisen many times and each time it is as good as the last visit. Love the acting and the show that goes with cooking the food and find it a good place to chat to others who are sitting at the same station as you. The food is always excellent and I can strongly recommend it!

this is a very nice restaurant with experienced chefs preparing your food with fresh ingredients in front of your eyes. If you are in Paphos its worth to pay it a visit. Kids love the show and adults usually attempt to mimic the chefs

Teenagers, they're never happy. However, my teenager loved this place, as did we all. Great food and the chefs are very entertaining. Definitely worth a visit bit book in advance to save disappointment.

Never had to participate in cooking and earning the right to eat my dinner before! This was a lot of fun! Can get a little messy if you can't catch so watch out! Food wasn't over shadowed by the show either! You've got to try this place before you go home!

We were sceptical at first as we have not tried Japanese before. However, the chef came over and entertained us from the off, giving people nicknames and making jokes with great energy. Not only this but they have great cooking skills and get the whole table involved right in front of you. It's a must go to if your staying... More
