Sushi Sam'sJapanese • San Mateo, United States
Omakase all the way!
Room 4-5. Junior suite, river view, balcony. Best room
Formerly Live Sushi. We used to frequent this place a lot until mgmt / name chg. Came back recently wary of new mgmt. However menu remained intact and overall sushi was still good as before.
The Chef's Tasting Menu is generous and reasonably priced at $88pp. Everyone on the table needs to order it. However, dishes served are difft per person so you get to taste a wide gamut of options.
Appetizers here were good. Ordered the shrimp salad, beef salad, spring rolls, fried egg rolls. Beef Pho was just ok. Staff were friendly, and venue appealing.
Location is excellent close to the Capitol and Union St Metro. Staff needs retraining tho from unhelpful front desk, to less than cordial bell staff to unsmiling maître'd.
Parking is now $18/night. Get a West facing room (preferably high floor) for a nightly fireworks show from Sea World.
A disappointment. Short on sushi basics - rice had no flavor, fish was dry (prob not fresh). Service was impeccable though. And can't go wrong with black sesame ice cream for dessert.
Excellent bike tour of Berlin! Great way to city the city. Derrick (our guide) was funny and knowledgeable. Volunteer to be the last biker for a "surprise."
Had the Bun. Tasted fairly authentic. Fried banana with ice cream was excellent. Good value for the money. cash only
Poke was very good. Cubano pork and Luau pork were under seasoned. Don't be afraid of salt!
Didn't realize it gets busy Sat nights. Who knew ppl still went bowling.
Budget hotel, sorely needing a renovation. Wifi is poor as evidenced by people congregating at the lobby checking email. Location is the only thing going for it.
Dont forget to go to the 9th floor at night for a great view of the Acropolis.
Interesting hotel. You could come here multiple times and have a difft themed room every time. Nice amenities. Great breakfast spread
Leave room for dessert! The raspberry sorbet with cassava is yummy.
To get here from Central Station: take tram 4 or 9. You can pay on the team. Get off Rembrandtsplein. Amstel is 1 block away.
