“Not Bad! Especially at the Price!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I came here with some relatives a few weeks back and had no clue what we were getting into. Sambo Kojin is a Japanese restaurant serving all types of food such as sushi, BBQ, seafood.

The unique thing about this place is that there are gas powered grills at each table. It's sort of buffet style where you choose your meat or seafood, then bring back to the table and cook it there yourself. The good thing is that most of the food that they offer cook in only a few minutes so you don't have to wait too long, especially if you're starving. They do offer some food that is already cooked such as shrimp tempura, amongst other.

Sushi selection is pretty good. They've got some great sashimi on deck. For dessert, they've got some cakes and other pastries, but I usually end up going with the ice cream. Great place to eat. I think the price is about P599? Or it might be P699. But not too bad!

Reviewed February 10, 2013

I am a balikbayanm and never been in eastwood so, my friend took me there and ate at sambo. I enjoyed our dinner w huge selection of sashimi, sushi and really enjoyed grilling meat and veggies.Desserts was fine and service was good. I found the place nice and quiet.My only complain is their bathroom, for a big and good resto should have a decent bathroom.

“Superb”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We celebrated my birthday last week here, we were surprised that it was a perfect place for a yakiniku experience.

Soup section, rolls, sashimis and the fresh meat. They were of good quality, carefully done and prepared, good quality in short.

Ambiance was so great, smokeless in the room, service crew was so responsive and accomodating.

Price is very reasonable. Overall excellent. The next day, we were there again, it was truly great.

“Great cuts of beef, delicious prawns and great desserts!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

We go here at least twice a month. You can have tour prawns peeled for you, request it to be cooked with butter and garlic or grill it to your heart's content. We love their beef cutlets too. They have a yummy selection of desserts from ice cream, mouse, fruits, cakes and even gummy worms!
