My wife and I eat here whenever she has a craving for California rolls. They have some of the freshest sushi in the area. The food is always done right. I don't think you will be disappointed if you choose to dine here

Samurai is a good place to eat. Hibachi or teryaki is tasty and the service is good. You can get beer. There is a backroom for more privacy.

We dined here last night and found the menu quite limited in choices, with "a la carte" being the major theme. Soup was hot water with broth and a couple of mushrooms. Sushi was fresh, but, again, how to sample it economically without some kind of combination plate available? You can't! Tempura shrimp was pretty good, as were the pieces... More

Always a treat. Either sushi or habachi is always prepared very nice. I prefer over anything else in the Athens area.

Dined twice for dinner during week of work nearby. Had the Out of Control Roll each time with Miso Soup on one visit and with Pepper Tuna Salad on the other. The roll is wonderful and came sliced in eight pieces. The Pepper Tuna salad was very unusual and highly recommended. The Athens, Decatur, Madison area has surprisingly good Sushi... More

Sushi is yummy and super affordable! Great for a date night! The only downside we have had there was witnessing the owners shouting at each other in the main dining area which was just unprofessional and awkward. It appeared to be a conflict between husband/wife but it was too loud for us to enjoy the rest of our meal.

I had the steak and chicken dinner combo. The food flavor was ok and the portion was filling. The service was good. The overall environment was outdated and old. No real problems but I will probably not go back simply because most restaurants are better choices.

Got the beef box dinner , scallops off the appetizer menu, California roll and cucumber roll. I don't have one complaint... Beef was tender, scallops were da bomb. Very reasonable prices too. I'll be back.

Very nice inside and a staff that was attentive. Price wise- for the amount of food you get the price was right on the money lol. The food was a lot and very delicious. The steak teriyaki is highly recommended. We will be back to this place for sure.

Wait staff very nice and receptive. As others have said, don't let the outside keep you from trying this restaurant out!
