“Best sushi in Zurich”
Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Samurai offers the best sushi in Zurich at a very honest price. Service is good and you will have to book a table in advance because it is usually full and there are not that many tables.

“Best sushis in town”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

At that price you won't get better sushi in Zurich (if you are coming from another country, you will still find the place expensive)! Having been there now a couple of times, we have never been disappointed and can strongly advise to book your table in advance (even if they've now open a second restaurant - Samurai II that is very close to the original one, we never saw an empty seat).
The rolls are delightful - each set on the menu conveying a subtle blend of tastes. You feel that the ingredients were carefully selected and associated. You cannot say that from every sushi-restaurant in this city...
Service quality depended a bit on the server we got. This time it was excellent, having a very friendly server speaking at least Japanese, German and French.
This is really a nice place for having sushis that we recommend to everyone.

“Great Sushi, hard to get in”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Excellent quality sushi, very friendly staff. It isn't somewhere where you can just show up, it is really advisable to reserve.

I know it is Zurich, but it is expensive....

“Really Japanese”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Working for a Japanese company I have been several times to this restaurant with japanese colleagues. I can say they always have been amazed about the the food and the quality. This restaurant can compete with other european based japanese restaurants in Düsseldorf or Amsterdam. So the concept japanese cooks and servers for janapese food works.

Next to excellent sushi and sashimi the kitchen offers a wide range of noodle dishes, breaded meat, fried oisters and you name it. This is what I like here, most japanese restaurants in Switzerland offer only sushi and sashimi - here you can find real japanese kitchen.

The place is small, so don't forget to make dinner reservation.

“Best sushi in town, authentic ambience”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

I come regularly here, it is really the best place to eat sushi in Zurich. The most important thing is really the food itself, the ingredients are excellent and the service is great too. Price/value ration is also good, not the fanciest restaurant, but that is also not the point. Downside: the place is wuite small, so you might go home smelling like a kilo of sashimi.
