We speak little Spanish, so we often start with an English greeting. The waiter immediately signaled us to wait a moment, and got another waiter who spoke pretty much perfect English. We do not expect this when in Costa Rica, but it's a pleasure when we don't have to work very hard to make orders.

We ordered steamed chicken dumplings as a appetizer, which were good.

We ordered 2 rolls and some sashimi for dinner. The rolls tasted great and were HUGE! That's nice because they do cost around $16/each. We were going to order 3 and luckily settled on only 2. The size actually posed a problem for my girlfriend as she couldn't fit each piece in her mouth, so she wound up taking bites which caused each piece to fall apart. Oh well, I thoroughly enjoyed it and besides that so did she.

We'd come back here again.

I have to say, the restaurant has delicious rolls, but the service was record breaking. Only 4 tables (including ours) were occupied, the restaurant was practically empty, and it took them over 1 hour to bring us rolls. My friend had to cancel her order and they still tried to charge us her food. It was a mess. Waitresses were not very helpful. I'll not be going back.

We love Samurai, even if it is a bit expensive... The rolls are consistently delicious, clean and the service rocks. If you want fresh, tasty sushi you don't mind investing a few extra colones in, go for lunch/dinner here.

good tasty food, well prepared and good presentation. The restaurant is clean and well appointed. Service has been good to very good. Fine for family or business dining. The restaurant is divided into 3 rooms so look around and make your choice.

Thank Broho
