I've been back several times and this restaurant is outstanding! It's been there for years which should tell you something about being good. The sushi bar is lively and fun, although the atmosphere is bright and light with lot's of families enjoying great food. They have some great Bento Box combinations that are worth giving a try. And they usually... More

Good neighborhood food. Go there often. Great variety and consistently good. They have a special teriyaki dinner which is excellent and priced right.

Sometimes the little "hole-in-the-wall" places serve up some of the best food. This is certainly the case with Samurai Sam's. Very unpretentious. Just a few tables, since most of the business is carry-out. The food is fairly authentic (we are a long way from Koreatown) and the portions are generous. Prices are low and the quality is good. A great... More

We needed a place to eat that was fast and very casual, but not fast food (we had just finished a day of hiking). This place had some good reviews so decided to give it a try. The adults liked the spicy Korean food. Kids had yakisoba, which was yummy and pretty standard. Good prices, and we weren't able to... More

I'm no expert on Korean food but I sure like the food here. The décor isn't too wonderful but the food is tasty and the portions generous. I've visited a few times and have been satisfied every time. It seems they're getting busier too so I guess the word is out.

This restaurant is Sam's Korean BBQ & Teriyaki Grill according to my menu and the sign. It has good food and offers a lot of Korean dishes. Service was excellent and fast and correct. They serve 3 types of beer and 1 Soju. You can have wraps, bowls, appetizers, yakisoba and the plates of Korean food. I found the place... More

Their food is excellent. Love the large $5 chicken bowl. Food is made fresh as you order but the wait is worth it! Try the Korean menu too.
