“Poor from start to finish”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Unfortunately my wife had been raving about teppanyaki style food and how great it was - because neither of us had tried the Last Samurai we thought we would give it a go especially as my wife's experiences at other restaurants was exceptional.
Unluckily this was not so - on entering the place was dead - and I mean dead! nobody except us and the serving staff, we were seated by our server who whilst attentive obviously knew nothing about the menu and couldn't answer any of our questions, his apparent lack of knowledge was compounded by his name badge being upside down and his shirt looking like he'd been dragged through a hedge backwards.

The food was ok, nothing special or exceptional and the price was expensive for what we ordered. The floor show cooking was fun but out chef seemed bored and as we were the only customers I can understand why.

Not a fun experience, no ambience, no soul, no taste to the oily food - definitely a no go!

“Great sushi and hibachi/teppanyaki”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

We've visited Last Samurai on a couple occasions, once for sushi and once for teppanyaki.

On our most recent visit, we opted for teppanyaki. The restaurant was dead, I think we might have been the only customers, but it was early and during the week. And quite frankly, it suited us just fine. The server was very polite and attentive and we got everything on time. The teppanyaki chef was fun and put on a little show for us, which was especially fun for our young son. The food was cooked to absolute perfection, the clams just melted in my mouth.

Overall, it's a very pleasant restaurant, will definitely visit again.
