“Nothing like what other reviews said.”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

I saw really good reviews for this Restaurant and decided to go. Nothing like that. Food quality was poor. Service was marginal at best. I had to ask for everything, even the obvious things. I was brought soup with no soup spoon, When I asked for a spoon, I was handed a dirty old steel spoon. Yes, I know Japanese soup can be had directly from the cup, but I am not in Japan and that still does not justify the dirty steel spoon. I had to ask for everything... a spoon, chop sticks, a drink refill, napkins. Food was brought in the worng order. Also, the wasabi must have been mixed up with something else, because it had NO TASTE AT ALL. I go to a lot of Japanese restaurants. The decor is nice. There seem to be a lot of authentic Japanese items on display, but the server knew absolutely nothing about any of it. Avoid ths one.

“Best sushi around!”
Reviewed January 7, 2011

I've tried every sushi place in Turlock, and this is by far the best. The fish is always fresh, and the owners and staff are very friendly. The rolls are hand-made by true sushi masters and never disappoint. I've taken friends from the bay area there who are accustom to the high-end authentic sushi available there, and even they were impressed. You're not going to find better sushi anywhere in the valley.

“Samurai Sushi - Inexpensive Quality Sushi!”
Reviewed March 30, 2009

Samurai Sushi is the best sushi restaurant in the valley. The food, service, and overall atmosphere are zero to none when it comes to sushi restaurants. With over 100 rolls on the menu, it's hard not to find something that you will like. Each sushi roll has its own special taste, and the diversity is what makes this restaurant unique. If you're not the type of person that loves sushi, then there are many other affordable options that you can partake in. Some of these selections include Chicken and Beef Bowls, Chicken Katsu, Chicken and Beef Teriyaki, and Udon. Like I said, each of these selections are superb. The sushi in the restaurant does not necessarily have to be expensive either. For example, my favorite meal consists of a Chicken Bowl and a Spicy California Roll. While getting a lot of food, this meal is very inexpensive. The service is great, and each of the waiters do a really good job at keeping their customers happy. You can't replace the kindness of the owners, Jin San and Moon. These two people know almost everyone that walks in their doors, and many of the customers have personal relationships with them. Samurai Sushi is a great restaurant ran by great people! EAT AT SAMURAI SUSHI!
