Very very very good... Been to this sushi grill and bar many times now.... It is FRESH FISH .... limited on the sake ...but amazing grill items as well. So I do not know why it does not rank higher for others. The sushi chef is Japanese.... and if you have been to Japan you will appreciate what I am saying YUM
Excellent place to go anytime.... As I am from California, I can say that Japanese Kitchen out ranks a lot of what I have experienced in LA or San Francisco. Great sushi chef, and you can buy a bottle of good sake, put your name on it for the next visit... Amazing service.There are two restaurants same name ~ i prefer the more quiet smaller sushi space to the larger grill. But that is great for groups of people who want to drink eat and have a blast. YUM YUM
We love this sushi king location we even drive down from Rio Rancho since we moved from west side Abq 2 years ago. The Sushi chef has been there for years and has always catered to my allergies.
Fresh sushi, great customer service, great price. A must try. Well be also providing a new teriyaki carry out similar to teriyaki chicken bowl but better.
Today is my 2nd time in this place. I lived in Cali before. I don't compare NM's restaurant with Ca's restaurant but I compare NM's restaurant with NM's restaurant. Across town I have tried many different buffet restaurants like Lin's, King, HongKong, etc.. and some casino buffet like Route66, Santa Anna, Sandia. So I compare this one with those I've visited. In general I'd say it's a good buffet restaurant in ABQ. I'd rank it's second or third on the list regarding to the cost and variety of the food it servers. I'll not return to Lin or Hong Kong buffet again but I'll with this place. The taste is about right. There're crab legs, clams, crawfish, oysters, Chinese food, the kitchen with a chef will cook your fresh dish with your selected ingredients. usual dessert like fruits, cakes, icecream, etc... We had 3 people and the bill is about $44 before tip.
I could eat here everyday! I love sushi, have been to a lot of different sushi houses in Albuquerque and Samurai is the best by far! I moved here from CA and thought I'd never find fresh fish in the desert. The service is great, love sitting at the bar and watching the chefs create art with food. A fun place to bring a date! I haven't tried the grill yet but I will soon. Thanks Samurai, you're great
