If you are craving for homemade sushis, this is the place to be. The selection is great and price is acceptable. The staff are very attentive and kind. They give you warm towel when you arrive. They also have Japanese beer and sake. They also have a selection of curry rice and fried skewers. Wonderful experience! Might be crowded during... More

I love Japanese cuisine and sushi. I loved my experience at Sansui: better sushi than most other places, and a nice variety of Japanese fare that I wasn't familiar with. The staff was very helpful in helping me understand what is what. They seem to have a passion for Japanese culture. Following their advice, for the first time in ages,... More

As highlighted in other people's review, staff members are excellent, super friendly and nice. As a starter, we ordered "Edamame (beans)", "Gyoza (dumplings)" and "Kushi-katsu (selected pork)", which are all good! especially we liked 'Gyoza'. It is also a fun for foreigners to grinding sesames by ourselves before eating "Kushi-katsu". Only areas of improvements are 1) different types of wine... More

Excellent staff, welcoming and helpful - space is tiny but nicely set up. It's obviously not cheap but that's no surprise when it comes to japanese food. Have absolutely enjoyed all the meals as everything is super fresh. Even vegetarian sushis are tasty - a rare thing. Would definitely recommend.

Good service, very tasty food and good price-quality. For sure I will be going back there! They don't have many tables, so I suggest you call to book a table. I... More

I was expecting more from them.. After all they said everything was homemade.. But the sushi tastes like normal sushi not that special..

Thank you for your comment. We are a little surprised that "not that special" granted us a "terrible" ranking, but we understand your standards are high, and we appreciate your honesty. More

My friend and I were absolutely devastated by the closure of an excellent Japanese restaurant of long standing in Versoix and so we were on a lunchtime prowl for a "substitute" in Geneva. We tried Sansui which provided friendly service and a limited lunch menu which was fine. We went for the sushis and they were of good quality, sufficient... More

Thank you very much for your detailed comment and kind words. Just to be precise, we cook our sauces and preparations with "normal" shoyu, but we serve a less salted shoyu to our customers, which is appreciated especially with high quality sushi and sashimi. We hope next time you will have an even more enjoyable time and dinner, which you... More

For over 20 years, Sansui has set the standard with an authentic and varied Japanese cuisine, both homemade and affordable. Traditional dishes, hard to find in Geneva, such as udon, soba, gyoza, yakitori, tempura, tonkatsu, tofu... Quality sushi made with fresh wasabi, and yakiniku barbecue at the table. Large selection of hand-crafted sakés by the glass, Japanese beers, whiskies, and other typical drinks. Bento of the day. Shaded courtyard in summer.
