This Tiptastic Tuesday is a restaurant review for the Japanese hibachi restaurant Samurai on Scottsville Road. When we went in, we were shocked to find we were the only customers. I think this is because there are two other Japanese places named Samurai on Scottsville Rd. The one we went to was 1713 Scottsville Road, Bowling Green, KY.
We were led to the grill and sat down. I ordered a coke, my son a Dr. Pepper, my daughter a sweet tea. We then looked over the menu. They had a large selection of sushi and informed us they were doing a half off on sushi. I ordered a KY Derby Roll which had crab and shrimp and a Dragon Fly Roll which had eel and shrimp. The kids ordered their kids meal, my son steak, daughter shrimp and I choose a steak and shrimp combo. The waitress took our order and then came back with our soups.
The soup was superb, a clearer soup than at Shogun’s but delicious. The waitress then brings out the sushi and my salad. The wait had not been long, but we were hungry and dived into the sushi. It excellent. The ginger dressing on the salad was just right and not a single sushi remained.
The chef came out and did the standard show. He did a good job and kept us entertained. Once the food was cooked, we dived right in. I would give the place 4 out of 5 stars. It was clean with great staff and good food. The place had an unfinished feel to it though and no other customers. If the décor was improved, perhaps it would be five stars. If you are ever in the area stop in and give them a shot.
