Went on a busy sunday night recently. The ambience is just average but the food was superb. If you like Ramen as I do, you'll love this place. The gouza dumplings are just like they make at Ohsho in Japan. Great value for money and a happy stomach. Order at the counter and no frills but I can't wait to go back.

I was Hangry and this was the closest option. Service was good, food better than expected and well priced. Serving sizes are quite large so beware, even a hangry person couldn't finish!

We are regular visitors to Samurai Bowl. Superb food and service, as they say on their literature, it's a casual dining place so don't expect "the works" and prices to match. Recommend.

Easily one of the best Japanese restaurant outside of Japan! Cheap and cheery set up and mainly frequented by students but the food is yummy! On a cold winter night, a hot bowl of ramen or an extra-large size tonkatsu curry certainly warms the belly! If there is room left go for the cheesecake.

We love Samurai bowl for casual dining or takeaways.
Well priced authentic Japanese - similar to what we experienced in Japan.
Eating in is great as they bring out food super quick! Don't go here if you are after a long winded dining experience
