Bento boxes for $8.75 are a comparative bargain in Whistler. Samurai is a very popular, basic place for a decent, filling meal. You place your order, then find a seat. Food is delivered by a server though atmosphere is fast food-like.
I have lived in Whistler for three and a half years and have always gone to Samurai Sushi for a decent priced meal. The food is not outstanding sushi compare to the ones you'll eat on Vancouver but its pretty decent, pricing isn't great but being in Whistler you find it somewhat affordable. I have worked for customer service industry for 10 years, and from what I recall and have been taught, customers should be treated the way you want to be treated. So today's service was very disappointing. I ordered my usual meal which came to $21.00 a bento box, tofu and a roll. I always pay by debit as I do not like carrying cash around. The pinpad at first was not working so they have reset it. And have tried my transaction again and it took so long. I get that, it happens. At the end it said it did not go thru and it said to check the ethernet cable. The lady behind the counter then said it is not working do you have cash? I said i only have $5. And then she said, there's a bank downstairs and i could withdraw money. Where is the "I am sorry for the inconvenience!" With her not apologizing, I then have told her, if i withdraw money it will cost me $4.00 and she then said I cant just give out free food. I get that but the fact she didnt apologize and have asked me to pay extra $4.00 in bank charge made me very angry. Hey lady, it doesnt hurt to say you're sorry, yes its not your fault t goes down but you work in a customer service industry where you always out your customer as your top priority! My decent priced meal is now overly priced!
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.
