Really Good Sushi

Went with the whole family, some young some old. They are super flexible. We just ordered dishes as we needed. There was a fight over the teriyaki beef that one of the kids got as a children's portion, we ended up ordering as a dish for the adults. Its small portions. We ordered several small... read more

Reader's Digest: Food: Average at best Beverages: Good Service: Poor to average Atmosphere: None Nearly everyone around us raved about this place but, unfortunately, our experience didn't match up. We were a party of three seated in a private dining room with two other large tables (probably 8 people or so at each) that had both already ordered before our... More

We first tried Sansei almost 10 years ago on Maui, and really liked the Asian fusion rolls at the time, having being sushi/sashimi purists up until then. When we saw that there was a Sansei in Waikoloa at Queens Market Place (mall) a short walk from where we were staying, we stopped in. Now that many Japanese places are doing... More

We don't eat sushi but that is not a problem here. We enjoyed the best steak we had on the island. The attentiveness of our server, Chelsea, was second to none. This was a delightful experience.

My wife and I and another couple were staying at the nearby Fairmont Orchid. We decided to try the early-bird dinner at Sansei because of the nice discount they promoted for the early-bird dinner. Though this resto is in a large sprawling upscale mall where you might expect typical mediocre chain restaurants, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and... More

Delicious, fresh food. We ate here based on the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We were so tired after a day of travel and no food - I spilled my water and my daughter knocked a bottle of soy sauce off the table shattering the sauce everywhere. As you can imagine we were a servers nightmare - but... More

We picked a lot of small plates instead of any entree. Couple of poke dishes and it was really delicious. They accommodated our toddler and he enjoyed the fishes. The service was decent and quick. Their lilikoi cocktail was really good too.

This branch makes up for the crappy service of the maui one. Service was quick. Staff was very nice. The noodle was very good. If you happen to be in the area go check them out.

This location of the popular franchise might be just as good as the others but my family will never know and this site missed out on our travel $$$$. Absolutely no greeting at all when we walked in from the two at the hostess stand. Not even a "We'll be right with you" as they discussed where to put their... More
