I've been to this restaurant several times as my coworkers seem to really love to go here. So, obviously not everyone is as underwhelmed with it as I am, but let me tell you why I am not a fan: -Sam's is a fairly expensive place. I tend to drop $60-80 a person when I go here, and we don't... More

Yet another example of a place that serves bad American food overseas. Everything was undercooked, and most of the food was not edible. Don't let the high Trip Advisor rating fool you. My buddy literally lost his restaurant picking privileges as a result of the selection. You are in Japan, eat Japanese food, it's really good.

I had a steak and chicken stuffed with shrimp. It was so good! The curry soup was amazing also. The service was great and the people were very nice. I went at night, so the lighting in the restaurant was very low. That was my only downfall, was making me feel like I was eating in the dark. The prices... More

Not the greatest customer service.. The food was decent but not worth how expensive it was. We gathered for a friends birthday about 15 of us & we had a good time. There is a bird in the front in a cage that looks mistreated & is really sad

The rib and steak dinner is great. Also, the Curry soup they give you is nice. I poured it over my white rice and it was awesome.

I had shrimp grilled at our table and it was cooked to the point that it rubbery. The taste was good and as the subject line indicates the service was good. In retrospect I should have asked them to lightly grill the shrimp.

This place has a great Hawaii theme. The food is very good, they even serve live Maine lobster. The drinks come in souvenir glasses. The place isn't cheap but neither is Hawaii.
