Very expensive yet the only good sushi on the island in our opinion! The wait is super excessive so go early or late but around dinner time is unreasonable (especially for those with children).

The hotel we stayed at gave this restaurant a thumbs up. We didn't have reservations so had to wait a little but it was worth every minute of our wait. It was a fun and excellent dining experience. The ambiance and the service was good...More

I have had several great meals over the years at Sensei. Very friendly staff. Easy carry out, as well. Although we never ate early enough, Sensei offers a great early bird special; 25% off before 5:30 for dine in only.

This is one of the best sushi/Japanese inspired restaurants I've ever eaten at. The menu is exciting, the place is beautiful and the crowd is noisy and fun.

Excellent place for sushi and fresh fish. The DK crab ramen and dynamite shrimp were amazing! The tempura fried macadamia nut ice cream is the BEST!! Plus, you get 25% off before 6 PM with a few exclusions.

Awhile back Sansei did not take reservations, but they do now. We were there a few months ago & they took our reservation. I highly recommend a reservation so you ensure that you will get a table at the time you want... More

I just ate the sushi, and not the Kodama, although it sounds delicious.
