Samsi opened in April 1993 and is located in Manchester City Centre. Since then, Samsi has been serving authentic Japanese food using fresh, premium ingredients and plenty of care with the aim of providing a fine Japanese dining experience for guests. 

Our fresh approach to traditional Japanese food has delighted Manchester's diverse crowd as well as visitors from across the country and around the world.

Since opening, we have been featured on Channel 4's 'Richard and Judy', Piccadilly Radio, recommended by almost every local newspaper and also featured by national newspapers and magazines such as The Sunday Times and The Sun.

Our menus are designed to suit all of your tastes and dietary requirements, whilst offering a choice to suit all budgets.

We are looking forward to welcoming you soon.
