“Great Show Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

The show at your table is fun. The food is cooked on a grill at your table.Disappointed in the food. If you have allergies be careful, because all meats,seafoods. and veggies are cooked on the same grill. Prices are above average, $125. for four people. Don't expect privacy, as you are seated with others.Didn't care for that aspect. This is a busy restaurant, so it is popular. Be sure to make reservations. Sorry, just not my kind of restaurant.

“Better than other area steakhouses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

Best prices are for lunch. food pretty much same each time although there is a small variation depending on the cook. Bar is also good. for the best time bring a couple of friends so you don/t get stuck at a community table with some tipsy person. scallops and shrimp are sweet tender and not overcooked. show is very enjoyable. service excellent. way too much food!

“One of the best Japanese Steak houses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

There are a couple of places in the Tacoma area that are good but this one beats all. If u like Japanese Steak Houses and u havent tried Samarai's then this one is one you should experience. If going on a fri or saturday I reccommend getting a resservation. We always order extra fried rice with our regular order. as we find its the best. Must be the secret spices they use. I dont think u will find this on any groupon as they dont have a problem getting any business as they are most always busy.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Wow this place is great!!! We enjoyed the ambiance and the food was amazing. I have twin boys who are three years old and they loved the show. Reservations needed at peek dinner hours. About $20 per plate and $13 for kids but worth it.

“Food is heavenly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2011

I love Samurai. It's amazing. The atmosphere is beautiful, with fountains, a bridge, and ponds. The food is even better - I personally love the shrimp and chicken dinner made for you before your eyes. The sauces / spices are incredible...
Meal comes with salad, soup, vegetables, and ice cream WITH your main dish. I don't know what people are talking about if they have a negative review for this place.
