Having been here several times over the last few years, i must say we couldn't have asked for a better night.

Visited Samisen first in 2010 and loved it. You sit with people you have never met, but the chef cooking everything in front if you gets people to talk. Fresh food cooked immediately on the hot plate in front of you! What's not to like. The menu is varied including sushi. It's not cheap in consideration to other Cypriot restaurants... More
