Typical hibachi show. Nothing new there. Only had sushi. Though it was tasty, it seemed that the rice was soggy.

Had a lunch meeting here. Reasonable prices and the food is very good. Didn't know they had a menu to order off of. Thought it was just the grill. Will be back.

My first choice place was closed and we saw this place open, so we stopped in and gave it a try. My title pretty much sums it up...no wow, nothing different from many others hibachi style restaurants and straight up average. We both had different currys and it was ...blah. Chicken was bland... vegetables were 1980's juliene... However the service... More

This was the first time we had ever been here. We were very surprised at the decor. The outside does not look like much but the inside is fantastic! We met friends for a "no turkey" dinner. We sat at one of the grills and were very pleased with the service. They were friendly and quick. The food was very... More

We always enjoy lunch at Samurai's. The food is consistently good and we enjoy the show put on by our chef at the hibachi grill. Lunch prices are the best bargain as dinner is nearly the same portions and meal at almost twice the price.

This place is amazing. Your chef makes it super fun for everyone when he's doing tricks with the food, and he gets people involved. It brings people together even if the other people sitting with you won't talk he'll get them to talk. It's so much fun. I'd pick samurai's over any restaurant in Murfreesboro. Would recommend to anyone.

Went with friends to try this "new" sushi restaurant in the Boro. Loved it! Especially the Halloween roll!

We were aggregated because they couldn't find our reservations after. Along twice and had to wait about 15 mins to be seated. Hibachi Chef was very good and food was very good. Solid and consistent.

Found this gem on last visit to town. Very nice upscale hibachi or regular seating and nice bar area. Always nice to have sushi after a week of the usual menu items every other place offers. Had a great server and the Manhattan from the bar was spot on.

Thank Don B
