Ordered the omakase and loved it! Slow-cooked marinated octopus appetizer was tender and delicious. Highly recommend the green tea tiramisu for dessert. Amazing sushi with great service. This place is great so expect to wait if you don't have reservations.

Sushi Sam's is tiny, cramped, crowded and busy during lunchtime. Not to mention the parking in downtown San Mateo sucks! But the food and the prices make it worth a visit. The portions are generous and the bento boxes have some great choices. My favorite is the chicken teriyaki with shrimp tempura, three California rolls, rice, miso soup, and salad! It is quite reasonably priced, extremely filling, and tasty to boot! I like everything on their menu, but must say I have never had better California rolls anywhere! They are larger than any other CR I've ever seen and they use real crab with a hint of mayonnaise for extra flavor and moistness. They are the best!

Have been going to Sam since his Isobune days when he was still a young lad, and I was a little kid. Sushi Sam's serves consistently good and fresh sushi and Japanese dishes. The line is always out the door, so come early if you want to get a seat. My family favorite is the Chirashi Sushi which comes with huge portions of fresh fish on top of seasoned rice.

My long time friend since grammar school wanted a local place for some fantastic sushi and Sushi Sam was the place
We had the C choice. A lot of variety of different kind of sushi and a large Sapporo.
Perfect for the 2 of us.

You can expect good sushi here for the San Mateo area.
Has a good selection of sushi grade fish and nigiri and sashimi options are good
