It doesn't matter what you order it will be good. The only down side was it was cold. Most of the people had their coats on to stay warm. Lots of food for the price.

We enjoyed the teppan yaki style meal. Very satisfying but not overstuffed afterwards. The chef and staff were very friendly and a meal prepared very well. Despite the generic name, we really enjoyed our meal there.

I've been going to this restaurant for 20 years now. It's a small family run operation, so you're not going to get brand new modern decor. What you are going to get is some exceptionally good food. They have the best ginger dressing you can...More

When I come to Japanese Samurai, I don't see a sushi bar. I never ate Japanese Samurai before. There is nothing good at Japanese Samurai. If you're looking for a sushi bar, find a Japanese steakhouse that have a sushi bar.
