Food here was fast and fresh. If you want sushi and grilled Japanese food they hit the mark. Prices were average, tried the sushi combo $12. Came with a salad was seasoned well and was tasty. A different take on traditional sushi restaurant, worth the trip.

We have been eating at this restaurant for several years after accidentally discovering it. I love the various salads available to compliment your entree. The teriyaki chicken bowl is a great bargain. My husband loves the steak and shrimp with the vegetable skewer. He also likes to get a California roll to take home for later.

I love San Sai. The food is always fresh and tastes delicious. I always enjoy the spicy chicken bowl, with white meat only. No Rice and Double Sumi salad. The Sumi salad is one of my most favorite things to eat. You will not be disappointed.

The San Sai in Brentwood is better by far. The staff in Downey is not very enthusiastic, probably because they don't have to work as fast as they work in Brentwood.

I went to the Downey, CA location, as it's very close to my home. I always get the chicken breast bowl with the "slaw" salad. Its very good, the only complaint is that lately there seems to be less & less chicken. otherwise, very good and not expensive.
