Best teppanyaki in town! Great experience for family and friends to share a table and make your meal in front of you live!

We speak little Spanish, so we often start with an English greeting. The waiter immediately signaled us to wait a moment, and got another waiter who spoke pretty much perfect English. We do not expect this when in Costa Rica, but it's a pleasure when we don't have to work very hard to make orders. We ordered steamed chicken dumplings... More

I have to say, the restaurant has delicious rolls, but the service was record breaking. Only 4 tables (including ours) were occupied, the restaurant was practically empty, and it took them over 1 hour to bring us rolls. My friend had to cancel her order and they still tried to charge us her food. It was a mess. Waitresses were... More

We love Samurai, even if it is a bit expensive... The rolls are consistently delicious, clean and the service rocks. If you want fresh, tasty sushi you don't mind investing a few extra colones in, go for lunch/dinner here.

good tasty food, well prepared and good presentation. The restaurant is clean and well appointed. Service has been good to very good. Fine for family or business dining. The restaurant is divided into 3 rooms so look around and make your choice.

This is an old time favorite, whenever I am back in Escazu for a visit I try to stop here, don't miss the teppanyaki and make sure to reserve in advance. The sushi is also great and fresh

We went with some friend for a late dinner on a Sunday night, was one of the few places that was still open, but was a good surprise. The food was really good and the sushi options were huge, additionally the prices are ok, a place for a good fast sushi dinner.
