Excellent food, Teppanyaki cooking and an entertaining chef make for a fun evening!
If you're not familiar with the art of Teppanyaki, its tabletop grilling. You sit and watch as the chef taps salt/pepper shakers and cooking utensils on the flat top grill, tossing and juggling them in the air as he prepares your food right there in front of you.
The soups, steak, chicken, veggies and shrimp were all superb. Not only does the Three Samurai prepare amazing food, but they provide incredible entertainment as well. Table guests enjoyed flaming onion volcanoes, spatula tossed broccoli aimed into willing patrons mouths, and various other acrobatic acts and jokes from the chef.
Providing excellent food and family fun, the Three Samurai Japanese Restaurant is a must do. Prices were reasonable, with the 'dinner & show' tab for a family of five coming in at about $100.00. The only slight downer was a waitress that was not as attentive as she could have been. It took two requests each time to get something like a water refill, we attributed it to the busy night.
The Three Samurai Japanese Restaurant scores four out of five stars.
