“Excellent Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Really good sushi - so fresh!! Reasonably priced. Decent service. Some very interesting items on the specials menu. The rolls, especially with tuna, were the best things we had.

“Happy hour = half price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We went for half price happy hour. Most menu items are half price, Very good food, but not the best I've had. The star of the show is the Tuna. The 17% automatic gratuity is a bit of a turn off - I am a good tipper, but I like to determine the level of service. Some of the items are overpriced for what you get.

“Decent sushi but not wowed by dining experience..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We heard great things about this place and were excited to try it out. Menu had lots of options- though a little confusing you can get pork chops in a sushi / seafood restaurant. We ordered some edamame as a starter. It was cold; typically this is served warm so a bit of a disappointment but we ate it nonetheless. Our server was really nice and made good suggestions. Sushi bar was really backed up and took forever. My husband loved the special Kona roll, and I loved the Sansei special roll with shrimp tempura (can't recall the specific names here). Spicy tuna also a hit. We also got the Mango Crab Salad hand roll, which would have been much better if the mango was ripe vs. being hard chunks. Overall, decent sushi but we've definitely had better..

“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We tried Sansei because of the consistently good reviews on Trip Advisor. Service was efficient and helpful. Food was very good - snow crab crusted Mahi Mahi and a sushi selection. Recommended.
