Located in the former location of Maia in Villanova, Azie on Main is another restaurant by Win Signature Restaurants.  The owners Win and Sutida Somboonsong and they also own Teikoku, Mikado Thai Pepper and Flavor on the Main Line.

We went here on a whim because my parents wanted to watch my son and we looked forward to some good sushi and a nice treat for a night out.

I first need to apologize for the long hiatus from reviewing Philadelphia restaurants.  My girl friend fiance got injured working out a few weeks ago and has been off of her feet.  This, unfortunately, has prevented us for trekking to new and different spots to enjoy some meals.  She was feeling better this weekend so we decided to give Samurai Japanese Restaurant a look-see.
Overall, we had a pretty good meal.  The restaurant had a nice crowd for a hot Saturday night in the middle of June.

Let’s face it, a Japanese buffet is not very common. Typically, an Asian food buffet is chock full of Won Ton soup, General Tsos chicken and egg rolls. But, Minado is quite different.

AS you walk in to the expansive dining room, you are quickly whisked away to a seat and asked for drink order from the wait staff. Kim and I ordered drinks and immediately went to take a walk around the immense buffet tables.

I’m not a huge sushi fan. I’ll get a couple rolls for lunch maybe every 2 months as a treat to my palate. After experiencing Blue Fin for the third time a few weeks ago, I now understand why people become addicted to the stuff.

I’ve eaten at Morimoto, Buddakan , Genji, Hikaru, you name it. I’ve eaten some of the best sushi in the city. I think Blue Fin is better. How dare I say this? It’s easy and I’ll explain why:
