Description: Samurai is a Japanese restaurant located in the heart of Antwerp city. It has reopened its doors with a simple but distinctive menu which includes a wide variety of exclusive dishes such as sushi, sashimi, udon ramen, donburis and teppan-grilled creations. Samurai's interior is inspired by the traditional Japanese tatami, a floor style seating, incorporated in a more contemporary setting for a whole new level of comfort. It's a great dining experience for an intimate table of two as well for big groups of guests. So don't be a stranger & stop by for a unique dining experience!

“Great fun for a group. Nice food”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Despite the fact that I needed to wear a kimono, I really enjoyed dinner at Samoerai. The cooks were quite good and the food was really nice. Prices were much better than I expected and even the good wine was affordable.
Decoration is a bit out dated and chairs not the most comfortable you can find, but it's about the show of cooking!
All in all, great time with friends or a group.

“Good food, positive atmosfere”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

As it was already mentioned in the reviews, it is a showcooking restaurant. While waiting you see your food being prepared in front of you. The cooks are real masters! It was not just boring cooking but a complete performance with playing with fire, salt and peper, throwing omlet pieces into mouthes of the clients...All together brings in a unique, entartaining atmosfere into your evening. The food was delicious too. We went there with a company so we could try several dishes. But I must agree that the menu still lacks variety. Mostly, the ingridients are different (chicken, shrimps, fish...), but they are all prepared in the same way and with the same sause. The service is excellent, very attentive and proper.I would like to come back to this place another time.
The restaurant is located near the Old town and just across the river, so easy to find and with nice view.

It's showcooking, so it's always an adventure. The food was very tasty but maybe not enough variation. The service was very good.
