All was good during my daughter's birthday celebration with six of her best friends until the waitress changed the tip amount on her own. We selected 18% and she apparently changed it to 22%. Didn't break my bank, but I found it very disrespectful and untrusting. I was appalled after my wife viewed the receipt in the car, she noticed... More

We came for the show and the food, and we were not disappointed. We ordered the hibachi dishes. My husband ordered the hibachi supreme, and I had the grilled hibachi steak & chicken combination. The waitress was busy and not very attentive. Over-all the cooking show and food provided a good dining experience for us.

Food is ok but you go there for the show. Your experience depends on who you get as a chef preparing your food. Last time or chef could care less about the show. We had the same experience this time. Our chef barely spent any time doing tricks and spoke to us just to clarify what we ordered. We got... More

I just left this restaurant, and it never changes. The atmosphere is awesome, the chef always puts on a show. The service is good and the food amazing. It's honestly better to bring your own party of 8 because otherwise you will be sat with strangers. However you quickly forget that you are at a table with people you don't... More

We went the other day to have a dinner with my family, the food was ok, nothing spectacular, but the show was good, and my kids had a lot of fun. Prices are high.

I rate this restaurant Very Good not because of the food or ambience, but because it is a very good restaurant for kids with families. It is noisy, the place is simple, there are no windows and you must go directly to dry cleaning after eating as clothes get impregnated with the food odor. Tables are for 8 people and... More

The Samurai chefs are always great entertainment for all ages. It has become a family tradition especially when the grandchildren visit. Never a disappointing lunch or dinner.The staff is also excellent. Saturday and Sunday evening is very busy, so go early on these nights and have patients as the wait(maybe 25 minutes or so) is worth the wait. Reservations are... More

Our family tradition includes dinner at Samurai. What a great way to include entertainment with your dinner. We all had more than enough to eat and I brought home a doggie bag!
