We've been coming here for years. It's a relaxed atmosphere and delish! I've never had bad fish, or bad service. We come here with staff, family or friends, it's really good for any occasion.

I don’t like to be an overly negative reviewer, but this place disappoints us each time we go there. When we first moved here this place was great! That was 2007. Since then, even when they aren’t busy I typically wait to be seated. The...More

We have been going here for 15-20 years. Food is good but the service has gone down hill. The waitress/waiters are very serious untrained. We stopped in on Sunday no hostess ever showed up to seat us or let us know what was going on....More

The food was over cooked and almost inedible. The chef was an American with little of the skills in food preparation. I will never go back. I use to go there on special occasions. This place is off my list. Horrible.

The variety and skill if the Sushi Bar can be compared to West Coast Japanese restaurants. Tucked away but worth searching out. It is a "Gotta Go" kinda place. IHG, Rube

Three Samurai consistently offers excellent food at good value. The lunch bento boxes are mostly around $10 and includes soup, salad, tempura appetizer, sushi roll, plus the main dish. Each bento box is always enough for two meals. Drop in on Happy Days (WThSu) for...More
