“Unexpect Japanese restaurant in small town.”

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 of California roll.

I will opt for a restaurant with more choices next time.

A little expensive for what you get.

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 restaurants - I believe due to the large number of International people that have worked in the Huntsville area since the NASA glory days in the 60's and 70's. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone finding themselves in the Athens area. I have to especially note my server, Hannah, on both occasions. She was able to describe each item I asked about and her recommendations were spot-on. Her presence added to the dining experience.

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.
