Welcome to Samurai Sushi
Sushi aficionados, rejoice: Samurai Sushi, with restaurants in Livingston, Millburn, and now Denville, is open seven days a week. The restaurants have received a 3 star ("Very Good") review from the Star-Ledger.
Owners Chris and Seline Pang opened their first Sushi and Japanese restaurant in Millburn in 2003. With its fabulous cuisine and attention to detail, it soon earned a loyal clientele and grew quickly, and within a year, the Pangs opened a second in Maplewood. In the beginning of 2007, the delicious taste and fantastic New York ambiance of Samurai Sushi has come to Livingston.
The Livingston restaurant offers a lovely, relaxing ambiance combining the Zen-like calm of a Japanese garden with a modern, New York sushi bar style. Earth tone walls of stone and soft, multi-colored lighting that turns to candlelight at night are enhanced by such details as a quiet waterfall and a bamboo tree screen. Fourteen television screens add to the ambiance with satellite TV entertainment.
The restaurant also has a party room that accommodates business or family groups up to 35, featuring the same lovely decor.
The restaurant offers a wide variety of both Sushi and other Japanese specialties. In addition to no fewer than 23 different sushi and sashimi rolls, the menu features Teriyaki and Tempura entrees, including Pork or Chicken Shogayaki, sauteed in ginger sauce, and Chilean Sea Bass Teriyaki, and Tempura Lobster Tail.
The Udon and Soba (noodle) selection includes Nabe Yaki Udon, with shrimp tempura, chicken, egg, mushroom and mixed vegetables in a stewstyle; and the Ten Zam, a cold buckwheat noodle entree with chilled sauce and shrimp and vegetable tempura on the side.
Chris also lists a number of his "special rolls" on the menu. In particular, he highly recommends the Godzilla, featuring tuna, salmon, yellow tail and rice deep friend with the chefs special spicy sauce and fish roe; the Shrek Roll, with spicy lobsters, tuna, white tuna, (tempura flake) avocado, and fish roe, with soy bean paper; and the King Tuna Roll, featuring seared tuna with mayo on top, and crunchy spicy tuna and avocado inside.
Samurai Sushi also offers a variety of specially-priced lunch specials. For one low price, the Bento Box, features an entree such as chicken, salmon or beef teriyaki,Tonkatsu or Chicken Katsu (pork or chicken deep fried in breadcrumbs), accompanied by a California roll, Shumai, green salad, Miso soup, and rice.
