great food, but tables are little to close. Service was friendly but restaurant is noisy. They offer karaoke on weekends, also late night dinner specials on sushi.

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
