Let's start with the key. The food here is amazing. The quality of the fish in the sushi is top grade. The steak was done amazingly well. For the food I would go back in a second. The problem was the night got off to a bad start. We showed up and the hostess didn't seem to know what she... More

Nice environment but inadeuqte food choice and Not tasty food. I am from Hong Kong and I grow up trying a lot of Japanese restaurants in home and Japan. Sushi here are not fresh and portion is too small for that price. Their tempura is so "innovative" that it has nothing resembling authentic Japanese tempura. They used carrot, zucchinii, onion...

I love Teppanyaki & Japanese food, but this place was terrible. I went with my wife on birthday & it was such a letdown. Way overpriced for soggy vegetables & unappetizing meat cooked by a semi-entertaining chef. The table took forever. Drinks were also way overpriced. I think they need to change the food, the prices, or both. Alternatively, change... More

If your lucky and get one of the great Chefs, it's a very adventurest meal in the Saskatoon. The service is great and a stronger Japanese culture present with a Canadian twist

Samurai has been around for more than 35 years and still makes my taste buds water. Any of their meals are recommended and green tea ice cream for dessert is a fine finish to a meal.

I proposed to my wife 20 years ago in this special place. We were treated to great food, entertainment and a memory to last a life time. I went back last week with a group of 15 friends. The place looks exactly the same, exactly! They split our two groups into two tables in a private room. One group was... More

We hadn't been here for a long time, but it wasn't nearly as good as it once was. Very expensive, especially the wine, and the all inclusive dinners, plus the waitress didn't serve us our salads or the ice cream. Not impressed with that! Plus, they changed the recipe for the ginger sauce - it used to be awesome, but... More

Quite expensive sushi since every thai restaurant in Sask sells sushi rolls. Last time I was there no one spoke Japanese ? not chef, wait staff. Good fresh food but over priced.

When I first visited this place for a meal it was nice and what a cool show I saw. Flipping around cooking utensils and alcohol fueled flames. That was 15 years ago. Now it's lame and so not special. Price does not reflect food quality or cooking show. No more flames and no utensils being juggled. I will not be... More

Visited here for a corporate event. The service staff were very attentive and helpful. I had my phone die during dinner and the staff helped get me charge while we ate dinner. The exhaust fans didn't seem to be working correctly as the place was filled with smoke and steam from the cooking. The food was alright, nothing special or... More
