The place would have had 5 star if it wasn't for the worst staff I have ever come across. The Snobby lady at the counter kept giving us bad attitude even after we were polite to her. When I requested for Teriyaki Tofu Don, she mentioned yes it will cost you $18 (three times) until I had to stop her saying that we are not arguing for the price, it is a request.
When she served the food, I politely told her "sorry we don't use chopsticks", she rudely replied "You have to come back with me to get the forks". I would have offered to do that but as a part of service she could have at least offered to bring us forks.
Unfortunately we ordered too much and I had to go back one last time to request for a takeaway only to hear her rude tone again " You have to pack it yourself".
No use of the word "Please" , no smile while serving.
We were having a great time at Elliot Stables so we ignored this, but in hindsight, she doesn't deserve to work there and Samurai deserves a better employee to go with the good food.
Sorry Samurai but this had to said after everyone at our table of 20 agreed on the uncalled rudeness.

My favourite place to eat when dining at the fantastic Stables foodcourt. Awesomely friendly service, amazing value for money and best of all delicious Japanese cuisine! Highly recommend the Bento box lunch special - every single item is exquisite. Will definitely be returning to Samurai Sushi soon!

Yummy food and quick and friendly service. We went here for lunch after visit the Art Galler and love the location - like an upmarket food court and pricing is about the same. Will definitely come back !

Needing a quick meal before going to the Mary Poppins show we popped into Elliott Stables. It was very crowded and noisy and we nearly walked straight back out. Then we spied Samurai Sushi and found a table just inside their premises. A quiet oasis from the noise and bustle. We were quickly given menus and told of the special on that night - a "lunchbox" for $15.00. What an absolute delight the food, service and value for money was. We received our miso soup within 40 seconds. We received our meal within 3 minutes. Delicious, fresh, appetising and just the right amount. We could see into the kitchen area and it was the picture of cleanliness and efficiency. And when the chef looked over we showed our appreciation and got a big smile back. He came out while were eating to see how we were enjoying our meal, and then at the end of our meal brought us an extra "sampler" of something delicious because he wanted to "make us smile".
This trip to Samurai Sushi was the highlight of our evening and we left with a real "feel-good" feeling about our encounter with the food and hospitality of Samurai Sushi. I thoroughly recommend it.
