We had a great meal and loved the whole Japanese experience. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and professional. Well worth a visit and we will definitely be coming back soon.

Two of us went for lunch. We had various Salmon dishes, plus other sushi. The food was very tasty.

The food is delicious and the service was really good. We also love the fact that there are gluten free options and that they pay attention on the food preparation since my husband is coeliac.

Food was absolutely fantastic, however there simply wasn't much of it, I'd honestly rather more actual food instead of a very nicely cut and prepared carrot flower, I mean 19 quid for your ribeye steak which consisted of a small steak and a hand full of rice, with once again a very nicely cut and prepared carrot flower, but the food what little there was, was fantastic

The vegetable yakisoba was a bit underwhelming but the sushi was excellent. The staff were very friendly and accommodating (we were in a bit of a rush on the way to the Palace Theatre).

2.5 out of 5. This place appears to have changed hugely in the several years since I have been. Food was average at best, with some being worse. Starters of octopus and seared tune average at best. Tempura was good. Skewers where chewy. Sushimi / suchi was average, and some elements not good. Service was friendly but confused. We had two waitresses trying to take our order very soon after sitting down with little time to think. We asked for food to be delivered separately so we could take our time but everything came at once. I find the addition of an automatic service charge Arrogant. I asked for this to be removed and it was, we then ripped in cash after checking the waitresses would get it. This used to be a belter of a restaurant, but based on my last visit it isn't anymore.

Loved everything about Samsi and will definitely be going back. Food was delicious, as was the personally recommended new in Japanese wine (sorry carbon footprint). Staff were so welcoming and even gave a surprise song and free dessert for my partner's birthday. I want to go again now!
