The series of Chinese restaurants on South Riverside in Croton has been replaced by Samurai sushi and hibachi. They've been open a few weeks at this point; and we gave them a try this evening.
If you like American-style pseudo-Japanese steak house, you might enjoy this one. Their show isn't bad and the griddle-sauteed food is pretty much what it should be. An interesting wrinkle: They serve stir-fried noodles rather than rice.
The menu is mostly devoted to the sushi bar, though I can't imagine why. Their basic sushi plate was uninteresting, a collection of over-sized pieces of decent but unexciting fish. The shrimp showed signs of being none too fresh. The plate had no garnish at all -- notably, no shizo leaf, which I rather like with my tuna.
Their zaru soba appetizers was particularly disappointing: It was basically standard Chinese take-out style cold noodles with sesame sauce -- and not a particular good rendition of that. Blech.
I won't go back.
