I have eaten from here on many occasions and never had a problem. Always walked in and order my sushi and waited patiently for it to be prepared. On this particular night I walked in at 8pm, an hour before te restaurant closes. I looked at the menu and placed my order and was standing there patiently waiting for it... More

We love this place! Sushi is always fresh and the family owned staff treats us like one of their own. Mr. Lee makes great Sushi selections, Mike the waiter is always pleasant and sometimes Mom even comes out to wish us a happy “Anyoung haseyo”. Try the dream roll, the name isn't a joke. Raw and cooked sushi. Looks like... More

I love going to JYL Samurai. Its a family owned business and the atmosphere is great. I have visited other sushi restaurants in the area but nothing beats them. Another aspect that i love about the restaurant is that the son (server) will remember you and treat you like a friend more than a customer.

So my BFF loves this place, and after eating here it's easy to see why! Their dream roll is nothing short of dreamy! It's amazing. We got a few different rolls, and nigiri sushi. The family is sweet who own this. Michael is a hoot. He and my husband got along so well! He is so funny. This isn't your... More

Limited selection of sushi but always very good. The inside is small and not much to look at but that is fine with me. Hours of operation are shorter than most. Family that runs the place take some getting used too. Not unusual to get a comment over using a credit card especially amex, they like to grab the menus... More

We have been going to this restaurant on a regular basis for a couple of years. We are always pleased to get excellent service and great food. The variety of both cooked and raw dishes to choose from is fantastic. We generally share 2-3 sushi rolls between two of us along with miso soup and leave completely stuffed! The new... More

This is my Sushi Spot in the Tampa Area. I have eaten at many Sushi Restaurants across the country a couple rated as the Top Five. As far as food none of them have anything over JYL Samurai Sushi. The atmosphere here is the only difference. Imagine eating Sushi at your favorite neighborhood restaurant where you know everyone. You are... More

First Year Anniversary DINER REVIEW • MAY 23, 2013 EDIT This family owned and operated restaurant has been open under this new management for one year. Small, quiet location-away from crowds-with a wide menu of raw and cooked items. James prepares all the menu items flawlessly. The fish is always fresh. The rice is uniquely tasty all by itself -...

A quaint family run Sushi restaraunt. A great menu with pictures of most of the rolls. Fresh ideas on new rolls. Only 28 seats and Fridays are busy so try another nite if you can. It'll be worth it.
