This was probably one of the worst food experiences I've had at a restaurant. I am not a picky eater, but I certainly felt like it here. The water was the best part if that tells you anything. My husband and I could not eat...More

Lunch at Three Samurai is a real treat - the bento box is a fantastic meal!! The box comes with soup, salad, California rolls, tempura, and your choice of entre. A lot of food, a lot of variety, and a great price.
