An absolutely brilliant restaurant serving delicious food. Throughout the lockdown Samsi remained open and delivering on Deliveroo, so when the physical restaurant reopened I couldn't resist popping in for a meal. Ended up ordering too much and they packaged the remaining food in to go boxes which we happily consumed for lunch the following day!

Samsi went above and beyond to ensure our meal was the highest quality and given the circumstances, the safest it could be. Their friendly staff were kind, considerate and eager to help. The food was amazing, in particular the Unagi. Love this place a d can't wait to go back

Friendly and attentive staff, big menu with lots of choices (we struggled to decide!), food is really tasty and comes in generous portions. I have been here a few times now and it's one of my favourite Japanese restaurants.

Atmosphere has always been great but as we are now social distancing it wasn’t the same. Although the restaurant was empty we were asked to leave the table after two hours.

Absolutely wonderful. The staff were polite (while maintaining Covid cautionary procedures) and we were served quickly and thoroughly. Delicious food at a great price and the restaurant was beautiful. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

The food and atmosphere were great as always and we were given a great table and even a dessert for my wifes birthday, which was greatly appreciated. The waiter who served us had a little trouble with his english, but we got exactly what we ordered and were really well looked after. We don't come to Manchester very often, but next time we do we will visit again.

Thought the value was good, so was the food. The wine was somewhat a little flavourless, but not bad.
