For land-locked Geneva this is not a bad place to get decent sushi. Lunch menus are a better value - I doubt I will be going for dinner but I may return for lunch. Decor is nice, if a bit dated and bland, and the restaurant is quiet and small. Not far from the train station - a five minute... More

Sansui is the only real japanese restaurant (that I have personally tried) in Romandy. Yes it is pricey, yes they serve sushi (how original) but they have other dishes like unagi-don, zaru soba etc. I can't speak for their sushi as i usually never have sushi outside of japan (even less in a city far from the sea!). It's my... More

I am sorry but i was dissapointed. The only good thing was dumplings. It is too expensive and sushi quality was just bad. I rather eat at more european knockoff.

Nice restaurant located in a quiet narrow street in the "cave" district of Geneva. Nice noodle soup with tempura and fresh sushis. Good place if you look for fresh Japanese food in a restaurant much less crowdy than its competitors downtown. As usual a bit pricy like most Japanese restaurants.

Not a fan of sushi, but willing to learn to love it -- this is a restaurant to convince. Small, intimate, with discreet service, Sansui offers beautifully prepared and fresh food, in combinations for those unfamiliar with sushi. Recommended, as a restaurant in a part of the city that is on the turn, as a place to visit and revisit,... More

This is a nice casual-ish place for sushi and larger groups with long tables, were able to stay quite late.

I went to Sansui last night with a friend for dinner and after seeing all the rave reviews on tripadvisor I really thought I would be in for an amazing meal. The food was just alright. We ordered edamame and gyoza which were good but these two things are not hard to mess up. Then we ordered four different sushi... More

Very good Japanese restaurant --- it really feels like being at Ueno or Shinjuku! We shared a "TAKE sushi assortiment" as well as a "Menu porc saute' a la gingembre". We arrived almost close to the kitchen closure (9h30) but we managed to eat without problem and indeed the service was really without any complains. The restaurant furniture is simple... More

We love this place. I have been to this restaurant with my family at least 50 times. Service is super friendly and they are nice with kids which is a very rare feature in Geneva. Sushi is always fresh, and they have a full and original menu of Japanese dishes. The Udon are excellent…
