Great food! Amazing wild mushrooms soup and very good pad thai. Also the dessert (a small portion on the house) was delicious. Unbelievable quality/price ratio for Cluj standards!

I recommand parmigiana (with eggplant, tomato sauce and mozzarella) and lasagna with spinach and mushrooms - they are absolutely delicious. It tastes better than a dish with meat.

After we sit we wait more than 15 minutes for the waiter to come at our table for taking the order...

Samsara was a happy discovery during my trip to Cluj! It’s a wonderful garden (although the interior is also beautiful), with wonderful music and super tasty vegetarian food!
The staff is very friendly and attentive!
What I liked less...was the couple of chopped dishes they brought to my table that I believe a restaurant with this reputation could get rid off.
Overall a wonderful culinary experience that I will definitely repeat when in Cluj.

Delicious food and friendly staff. The service was quick and the outdoor view was great. Really pleasant experience. I enjoyed every single dish down to the last bite. I left fully satisfied. Definitely I would come eat again at Samsara! :D

We ordered the Samsara Experience (which for some reason, can only be ordered for the entire table...). The dishes were tasty and colorful, especially the appetizers and the dessert (which was amazing!), but the main dishes (3 of them) were a bit bland and all of them had the same plating: a vegetable in the shape of a cylinder and some puree on the side with different decorations. The food tasted good (on a scale from 1 to 10 it would be an 8.5), but the presentation of the dishes by the waiters was a bit lacking: one of them brought the dishes without politely interrupting and created a bit of an awkward moment each time. They constantly stuttered, trying to remember what each dish was about, forgetting details and mostly stating the obvious or information which was already present in the menu. I know this sounds like nitpicking, but I judged them form the perspective of a fine-dining experience and these drawbacks that I noticed were in comparison to other fine-dining restaurants that I have dined in.
I know they are minor details, but at this level the small details make the difference.

Food is getting more expensive and the portions smaller. Unfortunately had to wait long until someone served us. A year ago it was better.

Smooth sailing in every sense. From the table booking (online), extremely quick reception (the table was ready upon arrival), friendly and professional staff, humongous vegetarian and vegan options prepared with a keen attention to taste and visual appeal as well as being filling. Loved the experience, have already recommended this place and will surely return in the future : )
