Sushi Sam's Edomata

Sushi Sam's Edomata, San Mateo, California

218 E. 3rd Avenue
(bet. Ellsworth Ave & B Street)
San Mateo
650-344-0888

Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi

Description & Atmosphere
Sushi Sam's is one of our favorite sushi restaurants on the Peninsula. And judging from the large lunch and dinner crowds, we're not the only ones who feel this way.

The sushi is extremely fresh
and much larger than we're used
to — it reminds us a little bit of Monster Sushi in New York.

California Rolls and Assorted Sushi at Sushi Sam's Edomata in San Mateo, California

Sushi Sam's is very casual, but what it lacks in ambience, it more than makes up for in food and service.



Food
Japanese Sushi Plates (a la carte) and Assorted Sushi will keep you coming back for more. Everything is good here, especially the Unagi Hand Rolls, Maguro Tuna, California Rolls (photo above), Unagi Sushi, Rainbow Rolls, and their monster Spider Rolls (deep-fried Soft Shell Crab, lettuce & avocado — photo below).

Daily Lunch Specials and Combo Lunch Boxes are good value, especially the Combo Salmon Terriyaki, Miso Soup, California Rolls, Steamed Rice and Vegetable Tempura (photo below).
