Had a small family lunch here. The food was delicious!! Our grill master was very friendly and was sweet to my niece. The portions were great size for the price we paid. Our drinks were kept full and the staff was nice.

This restaurant is in a strip mall, but stands alone a bit, and is excellent quality food. It is a standard Japanese grill where you sit and watch your food being prepared, but the rice, the noodles, the chicken, the shrimp and the steak were all absolutely done to perfection, and the meat was obviously of a very high quality....

We had dinner at Samurai and got there early enough in the evening so it wasn't very crowded. The wait staff and chefs are hilarious and very friendly and professional. The kids enjoyed the fire and the atmosphere. We had a great meal. Pricing is a little on the high side, but the entertainment value makes up for it.

Samurai features "authentic" Japanese atmosphere, great service, and consistently great teppan food and entertaining, table side cooking. The sushi bar is a favorite, too, with a totally different feel than the teppan dining room. The place is hugely popular, but they're always able to accommodate large and small parties. I don't know how they do it, but I never see... More

Had a late lunch here on a recent Saturday afternoon. The place wasn’t very busy and we were seated right away. The server was prompt and friendly. My wife wanted tempura shrimp but opted for the Teriyaki Chicken with Tempura. This normally comes with only vegetable tempura, but they added two shrimp for an extra $1.50. I had the Bulgogi...

Took my wife for valentines, it's been about 7 years since the last time I went here. Everything was as good as I remembered it. Staff was very nice, attentive, and accommodating. Our chef was great. Everything was cooked as it we asked, and was delicious. I'll come back again sometime for sure.

We eat at Samurai Sushi Bar often and it has become one of our favorite Japanese restaurants in the Albuquerque area. The staff are all very kind and friendly and the atmosphere is always CLEAN and welcoming. The location is very convenient on the Northeast side of ABQ in a safe and upscale area off of Eubank and Mongomery. Whether... More
