They were fast on our lunch hour and had some really outstanding veggie roll options. Most places only have one or two veggie rolls on the menu and they had 5 or six. They were really different and tasty.

The service here is excellent and the people lovely. However, the rice is not the usual thickness and is spread thin. The nigiri is somewhat fishy, and the unagi is overcooked to the point of crispness. There's got to be better sushi elsewhere.

I went to Sam's twice. The first time, I met some friends for dinner after I had already eaten, so I didn't order anything. Their orders for nigiri came out almost immediately, while rolls took some time. My friend who used to work in a...More
