This was really fun and I don't eat sushi

Great atmosphere for a large group. 8 of us ate here for dinner and really had a good time. Food and drink were superb and the service was solid. The Twisted Mai Thai is a little tart so beware. I had the Jerk Chicken and I very much enjoyed it. Bill was very reasonable as well

My family who invited me and my family to Maui told us about this great "authentic" Japanese restaurant. I love Japanese food and gave this place a try, BIG MISTAKE! Firstly, the shrimp tempura was flavorless and the sauce tasted better then the shrimp. The vegetable tempura was more batter then vegetable, I was sad to see no udon was... More

Great service, and amazing food. We had a party of five that were all sushi lovers, and we all loved It! The Panko-crusted seared ahi was a favorite along with the, not on the menu, gigantic dragonfly roll. Yummy!

Our server, Ronnie was awesome. We havent had that type of acceptional service in awhile. Everything came out in order and things we asked for was taken care of right away. Food was delicious as always but it just tasted better with great service! fresh sashimi to special rolls, can't say enough about this place. Great atmosphere!

I ordered the chef's special of an Ahi Tuna roll with spinach and was amazed how incredible it was. The tuna was in large chunks, not tiny pieces and they way they flash fried the outside to a perfect crunch was amazing. The sushi chef even made me a special order of whatever I liked and didn't hold back on... More

Definitely suggest reservations as it's busy. Food was ok but service was really good. Strawberry Lemondrop martini was refreshing. My favorite dish was the Duck Flatbread.

Living in Vancouver, BC, we are blessed with many fine Japanese restaurants. Sansei made you feel that you were dining at home. The atmosphere was welcoming and vibrant. It was elegant and yet relaxing to enjoy the many variations of sushi dishes. You must try one of their recommended sushi rolls and the ramen was delicious. The pricing is mid-moderate... More

This restaurant was easy to find, with lots of parking. This is the only place I have had foie gras sushi - nicely cooked and TWO pieces. Enjoyed the regular sushi and sashimi specials as well. Especially nice was the tempura ice cream - attractive and delicious! Lovely service. Restaurant was pretty full, so I recommend reservations.
