Amazing place with beautiful decor, super helpful staff and excellent food. We had the tasting menu and every single item was outstanding!
The only strange thing was that if you want to have the tasting menu then everyone at the same table has to have it. It wasnt an issue for us and all of us loved it but it does limit the option to try out different dishes if anyone is interested in those (and based on the quality of the tasting menu all the dishes must be amazing).

Am fost serviti rapid, mancarea a fost foarte buna. Singurul minus a fost pianul care era prea aproape de noi si care suna prea tare. Data viitoare o sa cer sa fim mutati mai departe de pian.

Great vegan choices, very creative cuisine. I love the beetroot soup, the tofu-kofta, almond cheese and many other fine dishes. Great ambiance and atmosphere - exact fit to the food and service. The service is very attentive, all waiters are knowledgable about the menu. Samsara is a Cluj must!

Ok, so this was a bit of a gamble for us as we had never committed to a fully Vegetarian restaurant, but this was an uplifting and enlightening experience, which will shape our future choices. We are no experts but for us the food was fabulous. The menu is extensive and takes some time to work through but well worth the effort.
Would we recommend? Well yes, and to highlight that point we made our way back the following day to get a late lunch before heading to the airport to fly home and we were more than happy to sit in the bar area as all the tables were full, just to eat a couple more great dishes.
On cost, well that's the real benefit, but that's true of Romania in general, where eating out feels like a pleasure, not like a mugging which is so often true of some of the UK 'Restaurants'

This restaurant is very easy on the eyes. There is a charm and classy vibe that makes you feel comfortable. Our reservation was for 7:15 and we were graciously seated 15 minutes early without a problem. I was provided an English version menu while my native Romanian date used the Romanian one. Our waitress was attentive and spoke beautiful English as she introduced herself which made me feel very comfortable.
We ordered a bottle of wine which was presented, uncorked and poured with skill. The food was exceptional and presented beautifully. At some point I quipped that we probably didn't need to make a reservation which made my date smile and tell me to look around. Every table was occupied yet I felt we were still alone and the only ones there!
Simply a magical dining experience! Bravo!

Samsara always has very delicious and various choices. But I’m my last visit the dish was not on samsara standards, cold and the taste was a bit like “old” it is about the 4 cheese potatoes with mushrooms tempura.

Compared with my precious visit we didn't receive anything to eat from the house. Even more, we noticed that other tables around us received. The wet tissues for cleaning our hands were also missing this time.
The potatoes I order for my baby boy, even if they were recommended by the waiter as a good choice for kids, hat to much pepper in it, so that my boy had trouble eating them.

Dear Sonia, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are disappointed to read about your experience. We assure you that this is not up to our service standards and we promise we will do better in the future. As for the wet tissues, we strive to be as eco-friendly as possible, so we replaced our disposable tissues and napkins with cloth ones. We would like to make it up to you, so we sent you a private response also. We hope to hear from you soon!

Samsara is among the first vegetarian restaurants in Cluj-Napoca and continues to be my first option when it comes to excellent food, superb ambience, wonderful service - it works magically for a fancy dinner with clients, loving family breakfast or fun lunch with friends. I simply adore this place!

My favorite place in town. The food is excellent, the place looks very cozy and the waiters are really nice.
The music is a little bit too loud. But overall, i highly recommend this place to all my friends and i always bring visitors from other countries.
