“Increased prices, decreased quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2007

I used to love this place for fast, healthy take-out with efficient and polite cashiers.

But, they recently raised their prices. Ouch!
Considering the food is not quite as good as it used to be, I'm looking for a new healhty fast-food place.

“A little disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2007

I have been a little disappointed with this restaurant for a few months now because quality has recently decreased.

Quantity remains the same and for the price, there is no cons.

But I tested many times the beef bowl, and the beef quality is not anymore so good. Even the rolls (tuna rolls or spicy tuna rolls for instance) contain less fish than before.

Those of you who went there about 6 months ago, know that we cannot anymore get by ourselves different sauces (teriyaki and spicy), and this is a pity. Perhaps people were abusing of it... I don't know.

In conclusion, if you don't want to cook tonight and want to eat "japanese", SanSai is ok.
