The reason I visit Samurai Mama is because it has such a relaxing ambiance. I've never been "wowed" by their food, but have never been disappointed. Solid place to bring a date, meet up with a friend, or even dine alone.

Highly recommend this place. I'm not a big Udon fan, but this restaurant stays close to its passion and it shows. The service was phenomenal, the interior well decorated, and the food carefully crafted. Everything simply feels thought out. I got the pork curry Udon...More

Hipster crowd, as usually, ruins it. The food is quite fine, if you don't pick sushi. Bowl, noodles and special are usually very dependable. Visiting at peak times is not recommended as the place tries hard to maintain a high turnaround and to get you...More
