We enjoyed our first visit, with several seafood items including sushi and dishes with noodles or rice. Good happy hour drink pricing. Worth a visit if you want quality Asian choices, particularly seafood.

Samurai Kitchen is one of those restaurants that just the thought of it puts a smile on my face. Every visit is amazing. The food, the service, the ambiance, everything! Their Sushi is the best in the area by far. Their Pho has such an amazing flavor.

Ramen noodle night on Tuesday. First time at this restaurant. I chose the chicken potstickers for appetizer. They were good although I think they were a little too fried on the one side...the Thai sweet chili sauce was good. Ordered beef bone broth for ramen noodle bowl plus kimchi and two slices of beef for the bowl....very good.

Booked a reservation on Sunday 2/02/2020 for 5 people at 7:30pm. Received a call from Connie the waitress at 6:15 advising me they were closing earlier than their posted time due to the Super Bowl and if I wanted to eat there I would need to get in earlier or I would be turned away on arrival. I tried to explain I live 45 minutes away but she didn’t seem to care so I asked to speak to the manager/owner. Connie then told me the manager/owner was not in and would not be in until Tuesday 2/04/20 and they would call me then. Never heard back from anyone on Tuesday 2/04/20. At this point they lost a loyal customer. Food was always very good, most of the time the service was not but I appreciated the good food so didn’t complain. Slow to wait on table, slow to bring refills on beverages, and very unpleasant attitudes at times. Food was always very good with the exception of small portions that were a bit pricey but again I overlooked it due to quality. Now that I know the owner does not care and let’s his subordinates run the business and treat loyal customers poorly to go watch the super bowl I will not be spending anymore of my hard earned money in this establishment. Found a place that same night by the Millcreek mall called Osaki that was more than willing to serve my family at 7:45pm. Excellent food, service, prices, and portions at Osaki! We purchased 26 sushi rolls from Osaki that night! I hope you can afford to lose a several hundred dollar sale that night and every few weeks that we patronized you’re establishment. Not too mention when I would bring friends and business associates to dinner there every other week. I would have left this on my reservation for 2/02/2020 but Connie canceled it out of the system.

We were out of town visiting friends and decided on Asian food. The menu had plentiful sushi list. We had two rolls and a pot-sticker order, both very good. Our main courses consisted of teriyaki chicken, teriyaki shrimp and tempura. Everything was well prepared. We would recommend this restaurant to everyone, especially for the variety of sushi. Although good, the meals had rather small options.

My family and I were visiting from out of town for the weekend. We enjoyed dinner so much that we went the following day for lunch. The food was very good and the portion size and quality presented an excellent value. (The presentation of each dish demonstrated care as well.) The staff was friendly and the service was great. I plan to return any time I am in town.

We were visiting the Erie area and looked up reviews for sushi. This restaurant was accurately highly rated. The staff were all so nice. The decor was very cool. The menu has many options and the food came out quickly. Portions were large and delicious. My only complaint is that the habachi was too salty for both our tastes. We will go back when in the area again.

The chicken lemongrass dumplings to start were fantastic with a great dipping sauce. Had the Indonesian noodles for lunch with a side of chicken satay. Chicken satay meh (chunks not a breast tender which was odd). Sushi fresh & wonderful. Highly recommend.

It was a nice place to go and eat. The food was great and the atmosphere was great too. It is nice to have a sushi place in Erie that is good. Also, we are looking forward to going back again for a Tuesday night, that is their Ramen night.
