Unparalleled, and always fresh
Locally owned and operated, SAMURAI kitchen + sushi offers unsurpassed quality, exceptional service and reasonable prices in our family friendly, modern dining atmosphere. Perfect for an effortlessly enjoyable night out.
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.
Excellent sushi and truly recommended. Found this place on Open Table and was very pleased.
We enjoyed the food. Our server was great. It was a busy night so it was very loud.
It was my daughters birthday. First time at the restaurant. The food was great, atmosphere great and server was very attentive. Will definitely go again when in the area
Amazing food and service. We will definitely be back!!!!
always amazing :)
Kassandra was the best! Wonderful service and experience!
Excellent! The appetizers were small portions, but the main course was large . Everything was fresh. Bring your own wine , so we enjoyed that.
Excellent sushi. Very friendly staff. Great service.
A little pricey but overall a great experience and i can't wait to go back, friendly people, great atmosphere, and amazing service i was actually seated earlier then i had reserved cause i got finished with other vacation activities sooner then i originally planned
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.
Awesome atmosphere and high grade quality of fish! Great!
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.
Delicious!! This place is an unexpected gem! The service was outstanding, our server was very friendly and knowledgeable and the food came out quickly and artfully prepared. Every item was really wonderful. Our table had several appetizers some salad, sushi and Pho and an Indonesian rice dish. Everyone loved their food. We will definitely come back our next time in Erie.
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.
Yes go and try it out
Food is great (I always order the hibachi), I don't eat sushi but everyone says it's the best in town
Just not what I was expecting. The limited menu and the lack of options really hurt them.
It was a great place where it was obvious their was a great deal of pride in quality food and service. My wife and I will be putting it on the calendar again
Our family of 5 enjoyed the miso, salads, calamari, wontons, sushi, hibachi, and surf & turf, as well as tempura ice cream and their special lemon cake. Everything was delicious with beautiful presentations. We took our Penn State Behrend college student for Easter dinner and his birthday. It was a great experience!
Good food, pleasant staff. Definitely would come back. Would recommend to others.
Great little place on the west side. We have been several times and the food quality and service have always been excellent. Easily the best sushi in Erie and the teriyaki and hibachi have been consistently good. Thankful to have such a great spot in town.
My favorite place!! Best sushi in town! I recommend to all my fiends.
Everything about it was good; location, food, service, decor... loved it all! I had been wanting to go since they opened and it was even better than I expected.
My family enjoyed the food very much.Our waiter,Whitney,was very attentive and kind.The noise level is a bit loud.Nothing to absorb the sounds,would make it hard for people who are hard of hearing.
had a very good time celebrating my birthday.we had a table for 6 people and all enjoyed a fun evening. the food was excellent and so was our waiter!will definitely come back and recommend your place to other people.
Good service, great food.
My boyfriend and I went here for a belated Valentines Day dinner and ordered the hibachi special for two. Happy we made a reservation because it was busy! The food was good, but it came out only warm and it took us about 40 minutes to get it. Serivice was decent. We’ve gone there a number of times in the past for both sushi and hibachi with no issues and will continue to in the future.
Samurai sushi was very good. All of the food was great and the service was fast. Went for Valentine’s day
This was our first visit. The service was great. All the servers seemed to pitch in asking if everything was okay. They also helped bus each others tables. The vegetable hibachi was excellent. It had a grilled taste to it. My husband had the shrimp hibachi and his was equally excellent. We will be adding Samurai to our list of restaurants.
This is now my favorite local sushi restaurant. It was a great experience all the way around.
It was nothing special, food was nothing special, server couldn't keep our water glasses full. We were seated at a tiny table that felt like it was in the way of everything, despite having made reservations. There are other places I'd return to or recommend first.
One of our favorite restaurants! Food is delicious and service is great.
Wonderful dining experience! Energetic atmosphere, spectacular service and phenomenal food! Will definitely be back!!
always have a fantastic time at the samurai kitchen. love the sushi and had the best Ramen Noodles this last tuesday. Will definitely be going back for that, hopefully this up coming tuesday
Jam packed for Ramen Tuesday special, but service was still great. Glad we reserved ahead - easy to do with OpenTable app on their website. It's really cute inside - kind of dark & swanky-but-cheerful look & fun atmosphere. (Fun to hear tables nearby hotly debating what toppings to choose for their soup!) And the ramen? THE BEST THING EVER. Vegetarian option was delicious, BF loved the bone broth version, too. Also really good jasmine tea. Can't wait to go back next Tues.
Food was good. I really wanted nagiri but it didn’t seem like they had it. A tad on the pricey side but that’s to be expected for sushi. Overall a great experience.
Great variety of food and choices. Nice simple, relaxed setting.
Once again, a stellar experience. The presentation alone is a sight to behold and the quality of the sushi is beyond expectation. Wonderful.
Great food and service...try the sashimi
