  • Enlisted Members entitled to SIK (Meal Card)
  • Enlisted Members Drawing basic allowance for subsistence (BAS)
  • Unit Commanders or Directors, their deputies, and chaplains are authorized to dine in the Samurai Café to determine the quality and quantity of food served
  • Officers, enlisted personnel, and family members are authorized to dine at the Samurai Café in the United States (US) federal or national holidays and the Air Force (AF) Birthday.
  • Military Retirees and their immediate family members (must be accompanied by a retiree) may use the Samurai Café during all meals except when the Food Service Officer determines that it will impact the service provided to the ESM and TDY customer (i.e., during bilateral exercises [KEEN EDGE, Cope North] and phase I of local exercises.)
  • Members and chaperones of organized youth groups may dine in the Samurai Café. A Letter must be forwarded to the 374th Mission Support Group Food Service Staff Office (374 MSG/SVMF) at least 14 days prior to the event stating the purpose of the event, number of persons and time. Members and chaperones of the organized nonprofit youth groups will pay only the discount rate and not the surcharge.

If members not required to eat at the dining facility, per diem for meals would need to be provided by the units and all TDY members would be required to pay cash.

If utilizing the dining facility is mandatory, then units should be instructed to not authorize meal per diem. With this option, all ESM members (meal card) can be added to our system and would be able to scan their CAC for meals. All non-meal card members would be rung up at the register and would sign the AF Form 79 in-lieu of cash payment.

For this option, orders should state, “Member not entitled Meal Portion of Per Diem. All meals are provided at no cost to the member or at government expense”

All members are required to present their orders at the cash register. We will review and calculate the per diem. The total per diem should equal only Lodging per diem and incidentals. If the total amounts to more than the lodging and incidentals we will assume the member is receiving partial or full meal per diem and will require the member to pay cash. Regardless of what is stated on orders.
