Sushi Sam's Edomata Reviews

  • ChefMozSan Mateo offers more Japanese restaurants per square mile than any other town on the Peninsula. When I moved there, I took it as a challenge to try them all. After trying 5 others, I found Sushi Sam's and decided there was no point trying the others. Sam's quality is comparable to Osho in Millbrea, but less expensive and with a very casual atmosphere. In fact, their dining room has no style at all, but hey, they got the sushi.

  • ChefMozThe food is some of the best you will ever taste and the service is just as good. Reservations are extremely helpful or else be prepared for a little wait.

    55555 by ChefMoz.org


  • ChefMozThe only bad thing about Sushi Sam's is that it will ruin you for sushi elsewhere.

    55555 by ChefMoz.org


  • ChefMozBest sushi we've had so far!

  • DorothyHands down best sushi in the area

    55555 by Dorothy


  • Polina DGreat omakase!

    55555 by Polina D


  • Ryan MGet the specials from the board only. Better yet, nigiri moriawase. The spider roll is excellent, but if you're ordering from the menu, you messed up. Best Toro tataki I have ever had anywhere.

    55555 by Ryan M


  • Shali N.Get the Super Sam's Special and Chicken Kara-age! Yum~

    55555 by Shali N.


  • Paulo B.Too much hype

    22222 by Paulo B.


  • Paulina M.Get the omakase

    55555 by Paulina M.


  • Odile DGreat Sushi but no booking so come early

    55555 by Odile D


  • Andrew BOmg - everything. Just get here before 5p if you're hoping for less than an hour wait. Seriously.

    33333 by Andrew B


  • Shirley L.Definitely do the omakase -- one of the best I've had and worth the (long) wait. Overall faves were blue shrimp, Arctic char, butterfish, and miyazaki beef.

    55555 by Shirley L.


  • Adam B.Everything is great

    55555 by Adam B.


  • Kelly WongBetter than average grade sushi. There is an omakase option, but it's better just to pick from the speciality section of the menu.

    55555 by Kelly Wong


  • Paulo S.Baby Lobster Nigiri from their Omakase was 🔥

    33333 by Paulo S.


  • Ian C.Omakase all the way!

    55555 by Ian C.

    55555 by Vivian C


  • Melanie IOmakase, and he salmon nigiri

    55555 by Melanie I


  • Nirnaya L.So good! EVERYTHING. Next time we'll try the chefs menu!$$$

    55555 by Nirnaya L.


  • Walter P.Order the omakase. Start with 8 pieces, because you can always order more.

    55555 by Walter P.


  • ☃Go a little early for lunch, 11:30 no wait.

    55555 by ☃


  • Jennifer N.The rolls have a bit too large in size and not neatly shaped. Comparable to other places downtown. Not worth a wait.

    55555 by Jennifer N.


  • Shirley T.Too expensive for the portions. Not that great.

    33333 by Shirley T.


  • StephanyPut yourself in the hands of the chef and get the omakase. Mind altering sushi experience.

    55555 by Stephany


  • LisaMmmmmmm butterfish....

    55555 by Lisa


  • Lily SLove this place! Try their omakase, toro and rainbow roll.

    55555 by Lily S


  • Vic Z.One of the best sushi spots in the Bay Area. Everything on the menu is made well. The sushi is the star though. Omakase is the way to go - 6, 12 pieces something divisible in pairs - recommended.

    55555 by Vic Z.


  • Tracy LDefinitely get the omakase

    55555 by Tracy L


  • ClareOmokase is worth it for the dessert

    55555 by Clare


  • Vic Z.This is the one place to splurge in the Bay Area on Omakase sushi - chef's choice and go for 10 pieces. Amazing quality every time and just brilliant taste. Worth it, I promise. Do it!

    55555 by Vic Z.


  • Lauren RoseBaby lobster, medai, blue shrimp 😍

    55555 by Lauren Rose


  • Jiyan YangFresh sashimi

    55555 by Jiyan Yang


  • Elden N.Don't let the modest exterior/interior fool you. This place is legit. You can't really go wrong with the Chef's selection. So much win!

    55555 by Elden N.


  • Ben S.Probably one of the better sushi places on the West Coast and best sushi I've had outside of Japan. If you don't have a reservation and it's after 6:30 pm, be prepared to wait.

    55555 by Ben S.


  • Eric LiuBest sushi place in San Mateo area, long wait every night, try chef special if it's your first time here, must try baby lobster nigiri!

    55555 by Eric Liu


  • Alfred L.The line was ridiculously long and they ran out of a lot of the fish. Dishes were decent but I won't go back again.

    22222 by Alfred L.


  • Bruce K.no need to use the soy sauce & wasabi; just enjoy the melts-in-your-mouth cuts of fish/seafood

    33333 by Bruce K.


  • Fernando CovasOrder the omakase from the white board. In fact, just tell them how many pieces you want, and let them choose for you. You will not be disappointed- stellar sushi, memorable.

    55555 by Fernando Covas
