This was our third trip to Samisen and each time has been slightly different. The chefs cook to an extremely high standard and really feed off your enjoyment. We have found the more you interact (join in, make jokes, sing along) with your chef- the more you both enjoy yourselves. If you want the 'show' where the chefs cook in... More

Great entertainment from your own chef - well, shared with six others! While enjoying your starters he will entertain you with his knife and egg juggling skills. Then it's your turn. Flip the egg 5 times without it breaking and get a free desert. Like anyone is going to be able to do that. Catch fried egg in your mouth... More

It's a place to enjoy the show but not the food. Meat and chicken lack any taste but vegetables are petty good. Rice is ok so basically if you're a fan of vegetables and ride u can go but bear in mind it's a tiny portion since it's just a "starter". If u have kids go to this place as... More

Brilliant fun, a bot more expensive, but like watching live food theatre. Be prepared to join in and enter into the spirit, chefs do a great job considering the heat generated by the live cooking. I've been several times and the food and show are always consistently great and we come away with wonderful memories.

Took our 2 young girls here for dinner. Great to watch them cook for you. Our girls enjoyed the experience Would recommend. Although the teriyaki sauce was slightly sweet. No complaints.

This restaurant is amazing! Our chef entertained us with his knife skills, tricks, egg tossing, singing, cooking and fire! from the moment our chef arrived we were in laughter and amazement from start to finish. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Do not leave Coral Bay without visiting this restaurant!!!
