Cheap and casual Japanese eatery 10 Reviews
- Picture 1 of 2
A cheerful little café serving up Japanese cuisine, but one of the most interesting things about Samurai is the decor. The explosion of origami cranes, samurai swords and pictures of Fujisan make it a little tacky, true, but it does have a certain homely charm. The sushi is a little rough around the edges, but portions are affordable and generous, with large chunks of fish resting heavily on hearty blocks of rice. The menu is vast, and boasts a few interesting options that you won’t find elsewhere in the city, including yakiniku – raw slabs of meat or fish that you can grill at your table. It’s an experience you won’t get elsewhere that’s well worth trying at least once, especially with a large group of friends, if only for the novelty factor. The food is a little hit and miss but Samurai provides welcome relief for those who want to enjoy Japanese cuisine without finesse, formality or an enormous price tag.
