We thought we would make our fourth anniversary more fun by visiting this tepenyaki restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The staff really involve you in the show out on by the chef. It was hilarious and we laughed for hours while our meals were prepared in front of us. Great food and good fun. If you want to let off... More

There are so-called 'high-street' Japanese and Teppanyaki Restaurants popping up all over the UK. I haven't been to one of them - for one reason.... None of them could top Samisen! I have been here every time I have visited Cyprus (currently 5 times) and it is consistently the one night we look forward to. We know the food will... More

In our last night, we had planned to stumble across something in Coral Bay, however after reading previous reviews we decided to come here in the hope for a "Great Last Night" words are not enough! We were entertained from beginning to end, we were 4 Adults, and 3 children! They were kept involved & amused the entire time! A... More

I have always scoffed at people who 1. always go back to the same place for holiday and 2. get all emotional about a restaurant they always frequent shutting down. Unfortunately I have found out why on our recent visits to Samisen. WHAT A PLACE!! If you are staying within walking distance, driving distance, on the bus route, can get... More

There are few words that would truly reflect how amazing this restaurant is. All I can say is "be prepared to enjoy an experience that is unique". The food, wine and service was excellent. Even when a small hiccup occurred with my vegetarian meal, it was quickly and politely dealt with and delivered with profuse apologies and no charge to... More

Lost for words! Best dining experience ever! Entertaining and simply delicious! I thought Japanese was just raw fish but I was so wrong. If there was 10 stars I would give 10 without hesitation. Great family dining. Must book high season.

A super evening full of entertainment for the children. I'm not sure if the rice bowl catching, egg juggling or the omelette delivered straight to the mouth was the highlight for the kids but it was certainly an evening to remember. The food was good quality, very tasty and plentiful, but it was the service that sticks in the mind!... More
