Wednesday night we were expecting to meet friends, one couple, at SAM’S SUSHI in FRENCH CREEK. Much to our surprise, when we arrived there were 3 couples surprising us to celebrate this old guys birthday. What a delightful surprise!
Sam’s as usual did not disappoint. Keep in mind that we have probably enjoyed Sam’s at least 100 times since moving here over 5 years ago. My favourite girl had her regular, Mixed Tempura (Prawns and Vegetables) which is consistently delicious. I chose Salmon & Tuna Sashimi and a Red Eye Roll which is wonderful and I washed it down with a large Kirin Beer. I ordered a large because it was my birthday.
Our friends ordered a variety of dishes including Gyoza, Scallop Sushi, Osaka Roll, Sashimi & Tempura. The plates were empty when we finished so One might assume it was all delicious.
We have never been disappointed at Sam’s. Whether it’s a simple noodle bowl or an exotic sashimi, it’s all good. The service is really friendly. Servers Chrissy, Chigusa, and Emma are wonderful. They treat us like old friends. Sam, who grew up in Japan and apprenticed there, is always behind the Sushi Bar creating his excellent dishes. He has a great smile, and just beams when he sees customers coming through the front door.
Sam’s is pretty simple. Not fancy. But spotless. With really good food. Sam’s does a big take out business too.
If you have not been to Sam’s Sushi and you like Sushi, you need to go. Our nephew, from Vancouver, hits Sam’s every time he and his gorgeous Japanese wife come to the island. She is from Yokohama and really knows Sushi and she thinks Sam’s is the best.
Sam’s is open for lunch (try a Bento Box) and dinner Monday to Friday. Sam wants to have a life so he closes on weekends. Good decision! Not many restaurant owners do that.
Finally, the one other reason to like Sam’s is that it is only a 900 metre drive from home. I know, we should walk!
