Samurai – review

By : | 0 Comments | On : December 10, 2012 | Category : Japanese, Reviews

We used to come to Samurai quite often but it’s been a few years since then. I was here with some friends last Saturday. We were here at 5:30 pm and there were some diners there enjoying their meals.

I ordered my favorite – the sashimi. Unfortunately, the portion has shrunk a bit but the fish was very fresh, like it always was. I was a bit put out though when I was asked if I wanted a mix or just salmon! Excuse me but I could make salmon sashimi at home anytime I wanted at a fraction of the cost. I chose the mix of course!

The sashimi came with two raw shrimps which instantly put me in a good mood again. The shrimp were succulent, sweet and extremely fresh. I was sorry that there were only two. My next taste was the raw scallop with some roe on top. The scallop was certainly fresh but didn’t have alot of taste, nor the roe. I was choosing to eat my favorites first so the next item was the tuna. The three  slices were very thick but unfortunately, ice cold, direct from the freezer so I couldn’t tell if they had a lot of flavour or not. The salmon was fresh as was the rest of the dish.

I also had a taste of the sukiyaki or Japanese hot pot. First off, the portion was huge! However, the broth was sickly sweet! It was off-putting putting the fine meat and veg into the overly sweet broth. Not a winner I’m afraid.

I was very pleased with my sashimi although the price was a bit steep (215 crowns) but very disappointed with the sukiyaki. The service was good and the toilet clean.
