Checked out tripadvisor...saw this close our base in chevron island, so wandered over to try something quick & cheap.
Yum. Maybe the best agedashi tofu so far, good edamame, flavorful & generous don meals. Yes, there is a bit of a language divide, but just smile point & nod works well most of the time. We eat at Japanese eateries a lot...many near home. This one is good, cute, inexpensive, authentic, and downright yummy!
If we were here longer we would go back...maybe next time. Thanks.

Found this place on our first night in Surfers and went back for a second night. Cheap and really really yum! Loved the guy cooking the yakitori who would play his guitar during the lulls.

After reading raving reviews on tripadvisor I decided to try SamuraisParadise all I can is WOW! This place is now my regular go to for takeaways. My favs include the pork belly/chicken wings yakitoris & the tofu salad. All tasty & with lots of flavour.The service is friendly & attentive-anyone sitting on the fence with Samurais-give it a go you won't be disappointed.

After a day at a theme park we were looking for a nice place for dinner for our family (parents and 3 kids- 14,11,9) that wasn't just usual rubbish takeaway or high priced restaurants.And within walking distance from the main Strip. After researching TripAdvisor I decided to try Samurai's Paradise. SO GLAD!! We were pleased to see only Japanese customers on arrival -- always a good sign. We had a variety of dishes from BBQ skewers, hot noodle soups, rice, chicken and miso. All was fab! My 3 kids loved it as did the parents. Actually we ate way too much. Our bill for 5 was $120 but that included 4 beers and we could have done without a couple of disges to be honest. I highly recommend this cosy and authentic Japanese cafe. Great experience that will be remembered. Enjoy!
