The food was good but everything was a bit too salty for both of our tastes.


We had 5 different sushi rolls and they were all fresh and delicious. I’d definitely eat here again. All the sushi was made fresh and the staff was friendly and fast. Great service!

We walked in right after opening, not a soul in the place. Hostess said we needed a reservation and we could be fitted in if we ordered and was out of the restaurant within an hour. We had 3 kids and 4 adults with 2 kids under 3. Not friendly nor family friendly. We don’t know about the food but don’t recommend this place based on our experience


We love Sushi Samurai and dine there regularly. The reason it lacks five stars relates to our inability to by wine, including Saki, due to liquor license limitations. You can BYOB but there is setup and corking fee.

Great food and service!


We were the last diners to leave as we had a 9:30pm reservation. We were not hurried and our waitress was outstanding and very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience dining at Samurai.


Sushi Samurai is our "go to" place in Erie for quality sushi. There are better sushi places in other cities, but we live in Erie, so this is THE place. The fish is fresh, the chefs are competent, the food prep area is clean, and the service staff are attentive --- all things we seek in a sushi restaurant. You can't buy sake rice wine, you can't buy plum wine, (or any other wine). Your drink options are water, beer, teas, and soft drinks. There is outdoor dining, but no, you can't bring your pooch on a leash. That's about the sum of it. 寿司サムライおすすめ

What an enjoyable experience we had last night. Our party was taken care of, over and above, especially since we didn’t have a reservation and it started to rain. The staff there made an accommodation and found room for us inside so we could enjoy our night out. Our server was great: so nice, friendly and very funny, she had us laughing the whole visit. We will definitely be back.

Service was excellent and everything was delicious (not to mention beautiful!). I would highly recommend the calamari appetizer; its incredible.


Very pleasantly surprised to find such good sashimi in Erie, PA. We have visited both Japan and Indonesia, so we have high standards. The sashimi and nasi goreng were both very good. And Sapporo on tap- excellent! Service from Constance was fast and pleasant. Thank you!

We had a very good meal with a good variety of items to choose.


This was my second time here and it was great! They have both inside and outdoor dining options. The sushi is fantastic and the service is great. It is definitely one of the best places (if not the best) to get sushi around Erie. I haven’t had the hibachi or other items but the tables around us were raving about it! Definitely worth checking out if in the area or if you want great sushi!

Looked up sushi places before heading into town for our trip, and this place was the highest rated. I brought my siblings in for dinner, and for it being a Tuesday night, the place was insanely busy. We were sat outside, but it was a beautiful evening so we didn’t mind.Our server, Kassandra, was super nice and despite being swamped, she made sure we were taken care of, and was very sweet with the kids. You wouldn’t have thought from her demeanor that she was one of three people helping everyone, she handled herself well.The kitchen food came out first, which the kids raved over and gobbled up. Our sushi took a while to come out, but that was understandable since there was only one sushi maker and their assistant in training handling the load of the dinner rush, which, again, was absolutely packed for a Tuesday night. Not to mention, the other a lot of the food industry being hit by lack of help, I know they were working as hard as they could. The sushi was amazing, second best to our favorite place back home in VA. We will definitely be coming back during future trips!
