We ate at Samurai's on Valentine's day as I love sushi. It was highly recommended by our hotel's concierage who said that it was the best of the Japanease restaurants on the South Shore. She made us reservations, but we did not need them as we were eating fairly early in the evening.

The center of Samurai's has a blue fire that is surrounded by a circle of chairs, but we chose to eat by ourselves at a table. We found a very nice selection of sushi and our son enjoyed the kids' menu. He is a great fan of yakitori chicken and rice. The service was quick and friendly, and the food was delicious and filling. We enjoyed our meal and conversation, but we did pay a much higher tab than we did at any other restaurant we visited while in Tahoe. Our bill topped $80. (We had several rolls though!)

I would advise you of one negative about this restaurant. The parking lot is VERY small, and it was completely full by the time we left. This restaurant is also too far from the Embassy Suites to walk to at night (approx. 3-5 miles). We did enjoy our meals.
