I have been taking a class at George Mason University. Samurai is literally across the street from the institution and was very easy to find. Tired of frozen pizzas, I decided to give it a try.
Samurai is a little pricey, but the quality and quantity was amazing! The seafood is fresh (including the sushi, which some of my friends sampled). The service is fast and attentive. One thing I appreciated was that you're not necessarily "expected" to sit in the hibachi dining, but you have a real choice. Having seen enough Japanese acrobatic cooking in the past, it was nice to just sit in the dim candlelight and enjoy friends. The wine is VERY reasonably priced, house wines only $5/glass. For those sitting in the hibachi dining, their laughter carried over, so the cooks were evidently doing an excellent job.
I highly recommend this restaurant for parents visiting their college kids or for adult students taking classes at George Mason Univ.
