Went here to see if I could find some real japanese food while in Hoi an. I was not disappointed! I ordered the Katsu curry and it was one of the best I've ever had. I was pretty skeptical when they told me the japanese chef was back home for a few weeks but the staff here proved me wrong!... More

We were warmly greeted as soon as we walked in. They offered to put tables together for our fsmily of 5 but we opted for a 5th chair instead. The owner put "My Neighbor Totoro" on the overhead TV for our children. He also helped them try out some wooden toys in front of his shop. The food was great!... More

Samurai kitchen brought the ambiance of Japan experience in Hoi An. We decided to dine in before visiting the Japanese bridge. The food quality is amazing, similar to great Japanese restaurant in its own country. Staff is friendly. I saw the owner taught one of his customers how to make origami.

... my dad is currently on the back of the owners motorcycle to take him to an ATM that takes cards with chips in them! Talk about customer service! The food came out a little slow, but it was worth the wait. The portion sizes seemed a little small but were VERY filling. The miso soup tasted just like it... More

This restaurant is located by the central market of hoi an. It is small and cosy. Service is hospitable and top class. Food is delicious. My friend and I had the katsu don. The owner and staff were friendly and warm. We would like to come back on our next hoi an visit. Give it a try!

A truly fantastic meal is was! Japanese omelette, crispy pork, miso soup, gyoza dumplings were absolutely outstanding! The restaurant is very small and very intimate. Had a chat with the owner who seemed very nice. The waiters were very sweet, even taught us some origami skills at the end of the dinner. Probably one of the best Japanese meals I... More

We have now reopened in new premises near Hoi An Market - welcome to Samurai Kitchen v2. Our concept is to introduce home-style cooking and dishes in the way they are prepared and served in Japanese homes. We apologize, but we are not yet able to offer Sushi and Sashimi.With only 5 tables, we recommend reservations to avoid disappointment.
