The owner is from Japan and this food is so amazing! They specialize in noodle making. The seaweed salad and fried mushrooms were amazing! We discovered this on a food tour, and couldn't wait to go back!!

This is one of the few really good Japanese places in KC. You don't come here for the sushi (which I'm not even sure they have) but for authentic Japanese diner food like noodles and remarkably delicious omelets from Osaka called Okonomi. Affordable, clean and casual atmosphere. Good for kids. I'm an KC native. I eat here at least a few times a week. It's like a little trip to Japan.

Sama Zama is my favorite place to eat at in KC. I've been there 10+ times and have ordered a good portion of the menu; I've never had anything that I don't like. The Japanese pancakes are really yummy. I also really like the drunken steak, breaded mushrooms, yaki udon, and jalepeno steak (the list could go on!). The asparagus is a must if you go there; I have friends who don't even like asparagus in general, and they love the asparagus at Sama Zama. And don't forget about dessert - the raspberry cheesecake is super yummy! The restaurant is always really clean. They usually have fun Asian music playing (K-pop, etc). There are also lots of Japanese magazines and pictures of the owners with Japanese baseball players that are interesting to look at. The two owners and the workers in general are extremely nice! A great local restaurant for people to check out!
