“Can't say I was impressed with the sushi”

Samurai Teppan & Sushi Restaurant
Cuisines: Sushi, Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 March 2012

I don't go to Japanese restaurants for anything but sushi and sake so I can't opine on the rest of the food here. The sushi was just okay. It's not that the fish was bad, but I've had better (I guess they are in the middle of a desert so maybe I shouldn't be to harsh). The sticky rice was also a little too sticky. The rice couldn't even absorb the soy sauce and was like a brick. Service was good and friendly. If I do go back, maybe I'll use the oppotunity to expand my Japanese cuisine range and try something other than sushi.

Overall good
Food sometimes excellent
But feels like something is missing to make it a great place

You wouldn't think of heading to Nogales for the JAPANESE food, but Samurai is worth it. Located in a restored Ranch House (that locals remember as "Sweets and Subs") Samurai is an eastern gem in the southwest. Fresh food that is well...and sometimes entertainingly...prepared. That's the secret to most good restaurants and it's what makes this one work. Can be a little pricey, but the lunch specials are a great deal.

It's not a typical Japanese restaurant, so we were surprised how good the food was... although we went for Tepanyaki instead of the usual sushi/sashimi.
