“Good Ramen but expensive”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We went there for their Ramen noodle. Have the pork soup stock noodle with extra spicy flavor. It was quite hot. The noodle lived up its reputation. However, it was pricy. For a bowl of noodle with not a lot of meat, it cost me $14, adding tip and tax, it came out to be $18 just for a bowl of noodle soup. That is a little expensive even in the Westport area.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

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!!

“Affordable, unique Japanese fare”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

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.

“Wooooow! Awesome food!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

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!
