Just love this very busy place with it's absolutely fresh produce and highly talented friendly and motivated staff. When in town I'll dine there every night as I just can't resist their menu. You have to either reserve a table or get in early in the evening unless it's just the 2 of you and you don't mind sitting at... More

There is no need to spend many words about this place. Food is really good, arguably it is the best sushi i have ever had. I remember very little about service, waiter, etc. all i remember is the quality and variety of the rolls we had. Portion wise it is very good as well. 4 different types of roll fill... More

Ate here twice in the past week. Go early and get in line if you dont have a rez. You will have to sit at the sushi bar which is fine too. Early bird discount is incentive to eat early too. Had sushi the first visit..very good. And the second visit we had the main entree...very tasty. Also the appetizer... More

The place was very cold, the service was similar to what you would get in a fast food. The Sushi was the worst have eaten. Very disapointed.

Ate here a few nights ago, with group of 18 people. Server was emotional because we had 4 more people join than what the reservation was for, and was not shy in showing her dissastisation with this increase (in revenue!). Food was very nice, and came in a timely manner.

Sansei is the best for sushi and some other specials they make. The panko crusted ahi tuna is excellent. They make a lot of dished that are perfect to share instead of a fixed meal. They also have a small sushi bar where you can watch them prepare your food. Great discounts for early birds on Sundays and Mondays, up... More

Located in the Foodland plaza, there was a bit of a wait, as we had not made a reservation & we were walk-ins. The place is cute, very busy, with a moderate amount of noise. The hostess was very nice, and very accommodating, and found us a table shorter than the time given. We were waited on by Chantal, who... More

We could eat here every other day... and never get tired of it... Mondays nights are a must as if you go before before 6:00pm, most of the food is 1/2 off!

Went here with a large group for supper. Found the food to good but not breathtaking. The wait staff is good but has trouble dealing with small children. The children's meals were served last and well past most of the main meals for the adults.

We had dinner at Sansei on a Friday night. Most sushi (some exceptions) was 25% off if ordered before 6 PM. We booked through Open Table for 5:30 PM when the restaurant opened in a quite spot away from foot traffic. The restaurant called 2 hours in advance to confirm the reservation. When arriving, they placed us by the window... More
