The place is in a strip mall and hand written signed on windows. I was a little scared going it. However the food was amazing! Best I have had in a long time.

I don't really have any complaints about Samurai, I just wasn't really impressed with any of our food either. My family has a local place in Columbus that is our gold standard with regards to hibachi and this was a good step below that. The...More
