Samaurai bowl for lunch and it was prepared well. Service was quick and waitress checked on us a few times. Price point was on par with other casual dining chains.

Server was friendly. Food came out relatively quick. Beer selection was a bit dull, but it was cold. Had the Hunan bowl. The flavours were good, but the vegetables were a bit lacking. Overall there wasn’t much to it. Nothing bad, but nothing spectacular.

Googled turkey dinner and Sammy J's came up.. Arrived with no reservations at 6:00pm and waited only a few moments. Staff was exceptionally polite,but harried. Ordered the turkey dinner.. They graciously made a few modifications to my dinner to fit my dairy allergy.
