Our meal was disappointing from the moment we walked in the door.
The restaurant is big, empty feeling and cold. (They actually provide fleece blankets to the poor souls that are seated near the entrance)
We arrived early as we were trying to make it to a movie after dinner. The restaurant was completely empty, and yet we were seated right next to the hostess station, near the front door. The restaurant remained empty for the entire time we were there. Although there was no music or other patrons, the place was noisy with staff laughing and talking at the bar with the cooks.
The meals were edible but sad looking as they were served in large bowls. Kind of reminded me of the "Chunky Soup" commercials about the Mom serving the professional athletes their meals. (Except it wouldn't be $32 a bowl)

This is a Tapa's style restaurant so the lunch menu is designed to be light and tasty. The variety is great and as long as you order a few different items you won't leave hungry. The breakfasts, by contrast, are huge. They offer some exceptional twists to tradition french toast or egg bene' but make sure your hungry. We often go for breakfast around 10, then we can skip lunch and be ready for a late, long day of skiing/riding on the mountain.

The words affordable and Whistler are not often found in the same sentence but Samurai Sushi continues to offer great meals at reasonable prices. The service is fast and the food is always fresh, which is probably because they are always busy. Samurai offers daily specials in regular sizes, sumo sizes and vegetarian. They also have an "a la carte" menu for dining in or take. appetite.
