A word from Restaurant Samurai
Samurai is nestled in the heart of the DTC area and has been proudly serving the Denver Metro area for over 30 years. We feature an amazing All You Can Eat Sushi and Japanese Cuisine menu at an affordable price. We also have happy hour drinks every night of the week. We have three Tatami (Japanese Tea Rooms) for your private party of special occasion. If you’re in the mood for Tabletop cooking look no further, we are the only one in the Denver area that offers Shabu Shabu and Sukiyaki. If you’re looking for something besides sushi, we do have a great Cowboy cut steak and grilled fish prepared via our oak wood-fired grill. So run, don’t walk!…for one of Colorado’s best sushi deals, period.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great Sushi, Steak & Service + draft Sapporo that is so ice-cold!"

  • "Samurai is our go-to sushi restaurant. They are always consistent, have good pricing, and we love going there all the time. We like Samurai so much when our second child was born and going out to dinner just wasn't fun (kids suck at restaurants. :))we would go pick up Samurai to eat at home. Great place!"

  • "Husband and I love sushi and one reason Samurai stands out is they not only have the standard/fresh rolls, but add unique new rolls such as the Curious George roll - OMG - you must try it. It has a fried banana as one of its ingredients! Who would have thought that having that sweetness and texture mixed with the savoriness would create such an awesome roll! Please keep this on the menu. Again, that is one of the reasons it makes this restaurant stand out in that they offer such different/diverse rolls. We will be back again!"

  • "We have eaten at Samurai many times and we always really enjoy it. The quality of the fish is excellent. Much better than their prices would suggest. I feel like they should charge more but hey I won't complain about a great deal! Every time we are there for dinner they do get busy and the service can be slow at times. But the servers are all very nice, competent, and the ambiance of the restaurant is great. Love it."

  • "This is our go-to spot for sushi, and my non-sushi spouse loves their garlic rib eye steak. We eat here on a regular enough basis that the wait person knows my husband's order. They also bring us complimentary tasters to try. Never had a bad or disappointing meal here, and the sushi is always fresh. We've been customers for several years and my only complaint about the restaurant is that they really need to upgrade the booth seating. I hate to sink so low that the table is at an uncomfortable height, and I'm fairly tall. "

  • "I was introduced to Samauri shortly after returning from a trip to Japan. The food here is exactly the high quality and selection of what was served in the actual country. Very impressive! A wide variety of fresh menu items, well beyond sushi. Excellent Happy Hour drink pricing and value for bento box dinners/meals. Service is typically very attentive, yet may need to be paced at times, as salad and soup may be served within minutes of each other."

  • "This restaurant used to be a Neighborhood Gem but it's in real need of remodeling. Food continues to be very good as is the service. The vinyl booth seat I was in was falling apart and the seat was broken."

  • "yuck-low quality food-dont think I'm going back! Waitstaff acts like they dont care....poor quality old food-"

  • "We were greeted with a welcome and inviting attitude. Our waitress was especially helpful in making recommendations based on our desires rather than trying to up sell the food and drinks, The quality of our meal was great, We really enjoyed the pleasant ambiance of the employees who were extremely friendly and helpful."

  • "Had dinner at the Samurai Sunday and dinner was spot on delicious! My favorite Volcano Roll was the high light. I've been to MANY other sushi restaurants all over the US as I travel OFTEN for my job but this roll has not been replicated. Try it - you will LOVE IT!"

  • "The manager was NOT friendly at all when we walked in And has been a little rude before. She didn't smile or say hello... Everyone is really disorganized and service is just ok. We go here because its close to our house, but I think they can improve their friendliness(management) and service."

  • "The tea room was very cool and private, very enjoyable"
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "To start with there was no heat & it was 3 outside, no one mentioned this. This could have easily been looked over, if the service had been even decent, which it wasn't. Our waitress had a table of friends who clearly took propriety over the other customers. Lucky for us, we got to hear her discuss her recent vacation etc, while we waited for any service. From the missing & forgotten drinks, not getting our food, the entire experience left much to be desired. 2.5 hrs later the restaurant picked up (60% full) & our waitress completely forgot about us. When I expressed my concern to the manager, he said they were very busy. Busy restaurant shouldn't equal bad service. Regardless I got no apology, just the excuse that they were busy."

  • "I've been looking for a place that serves great shabu shabu, and finally tried Samurai out! It was very authentic and well done. I loved the cast iron that they cooked everything in. I really enjoyed getting to have our whole table eat together and enjoy the fantastic food!"

  • "All you can eat sushi. Awesome!!!! Good Service, Great Atmosphere"

  • "We heard about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. I can eat Sushi, but my wife can't so I ordered some Sushi. It was well prepared and tasty enough. However, I could not taste any coconut in the Thai Coconut Soup I ordered. It was a disappointment. My wife ordered a 2-item Bento Box with Chicken Teriyaki and Vegetable Tempura. The salad and Miso Soup were okay, but the Chicken Teriyaki was not glazed with Teriyaki sauce. It was just pieces of chicken with Teriyaki sauce poured over it. As for the Vegetable Tempura, there was too much zucchini. She was not impressed. The place was hopping so it must have been because of the Sushi, which is what I would recommend. Don't bother with the other items on the menu."
