Quite happy with the place. The food was good and the service was great. Met the owner and he was a very friendly person. enjoyed the tuna/salmon cracker appetizer the most. the sushi itself is as to be expected in Latin America. I would return.

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.
