    We went for a much needed date night sans toddler. It was great. Starting with easy parking, yummy appetizers, delicious sake and fresh well prepared sushi. Highly recommend

    The lady who serves us should change a cleaner, newer white blouse uniform, it looks so dirty. And they should have a better training on the menu, at least to know how the fish called in Japanese…. The lady even not sure tamago is eggs. Honestly, we won’t go back again.

    Yuki was the server and bartender, great service. Everything was delicious! The Samurai Bites are to die for and their homemade yuzu sauce is probably the best I’ve ever had. Coming back soon

    Absolutely exquisite! Everything was awesome with great umami. If the sushi was any fresher it would be on the hook in the water. Service is great. Beware! Everything even miso soup etc. with your sushi meal is ala cart. So things add up quick.

    The BEST sushi outside NYC, no question. Head sushi chef “Ichi-san” carves up only the finest dishes while the rest of the team delivers at a consistently high level. Do not be swayed by other budget sushi dens that are nearby… this is the REAL DEAL!!!

    Found this gem while staying at a nearby hotel to attend New Jersey Fashion Week. We’ve had some great sushi from Japan to Hawaii to DC & lots in between. Samurai Sushi is the best one we’ve been to in mainland USA. Everything was great but favorites were the salmon & tuna tatakis, nigiri, pork buns, age tofu, & Philadelphia roll. The staff is super friendly & accommodating. We’ll be back whenever we’re in the NYC area again.

    Discovered them over the pandemic when I would order on Uber Eats! Finally decided to go in person and was not disappointed. Drinks, Food and Service were all fantastic. Will definitely be back and continue to order delivery when we can’t make it in person!

    Food was excellent. Every dish ordered had a n authentic taste, unlike a typical cookie-cutter sushi place. Also had several choices of herbal teas, which was a pleasant surprise. There is available parking behind the restaurant, but also street parking if the lot is full.
