Samurai Sam

9 Oct

585 W. Nees Ave. #123  Fresno, CA 93711

1/2 Star out of 5 Stars

Pros:

  • Have high chairs
  • Place is loud enough that your child making noise is not an issue.

Cons:

  • No car seat sling
  • No nursing area-nowhere to really nurse, chairs are uncomfortable & the bathroom is a single handicap bathroom.
  • No changing table
  • High chairs cannot be turned upside down because the back is raised. So if you attempt this you run the risk of your baby being knocked over, since it’s not really what they are meant to do.
  • Not really room to bring your stroller in, unless you “park” by the door.

Personal Experience:

The food is DELICIOUS! The vegetables taste fresh, as well as the rest of the food. I got a half/half bowl of steak & chicken….my goodness that steak was SO tender. It is a small business, so the tables are pretty close together. We really enjoyed the food, unfortunately did not feel it was very baby friendly : (

465 W. Shaw Avenue  Clovis, CA 93612

3 1/2 Out of 5 Stars

Pros:

  • Have High chairs
  • Have Boosters
  • Loud enough for children but won’t give you a headache.
  • Changing tables in BOTH men & women’s restroom.

Cons:

  • There’s not really room to put car seat in booth & the chairs are too small for that as well.
  • The high chairs can be turned upside down so that u can put the  car seat on the chair but its on a slight tilt so you would have to make sure NOBODY pushes it and that you are RIGHT next to the baby. It’s a little too dangerous for me & I’m too nervous to risk that.
  • No nursing area. The tables are too uncomfortable to nurse at & if you can get a booth in the back, that’ll help, just be sure to not get in view of the tinted window next to you.

Personal Experience:

The name of the restaurant matches how I personally feel when I think of sushi (*sigh 🙂 I have always had a generally good experience there as well. On this particular occasion our waitress was Judy, VERY sweet girl but in general the staff is nice & accommodating. Any questions I had, especially regarding for my child, they were happy to help.

I wish I could rate this place a little higher but as a nursing mother it is not very comfortable & I would have to say that it is more kid friendly rather than baby friendly.

2 out of 5 Stars

Pros:

  • Have high chairs
  • Clean restaurant
  • All food is To-go

Cons:

  • No changing table & the tables only have chairs so if you need to change your baby’s diaper you may have to do that in your car if you drove.
  • No nursing area

Personal Experience:

The workers are very nice & accommodating. It is a small, local restaurant so I understand how hard it must be to add amenities like a changing table &/or nursing room. This place does not have a kids menu but have yet to eat at an oriental place that does. While I personally like this place, especially that they offer not just Chinese food but Vietnamese as well (mmm, pho) I’m afraid it’s not very baby friendly. On the plus side you can order any of their wide varied food to go.

*Warning to any nursing mothers, the chow mien is spicy so aware of that when ordering your dish.
