It's a well-hidden place on a small plaza, but very cozy and comfortable, with a nice interior design. The sushi is heavenly, and the servers are nice. The sushi master, Koshi-san, wants you to try various types of sushi to determine what is right for you. I was not a big fan of sushi before I dropped in at Sensei... More

I been to some very good Sushi restaurants all over the USA, but the best ones are VERY pricey. Sensei stacks up very well against the best, but very reasonably priced. This is my favorite Sushi place because of the value. The owners are the most friendly people you will find.

I ordered 1 dish which was very generous and alright but was not amazing. It's hard to judge on 1 dish so I would say it was good enough to try again.

During happy hour (from 3-6pm), selected rolls are half off, certain beers and other drinks are cheap and their sake bombs are only $2!

Loved everything about this place - food, service, and a tasteful casual ambience. It's a small family run place, the kind that I like to visit. My husband and I ordered two different kinds of Special Rolls. Both were absolutely delicious, as were the spicy edamame appetizer on the side, and strawberry mochi ice cream for dessert. We are definitely... More

I have been to many Sushi restaurants and this place is by far, my favorite. The options for sushi are endless and absolutely delicious and you cannot beat the price.

Been here before and the food was good. Came back tonight and they were swamped and a little short handed so getting the food was a little slow but worth the wait. The help are friendly and nice, food is very good and the prices are right. Definitely worth the trip or return trip. Based on the music I think... More

To be honest, I did not expect great sushi in Rancho Cordova but Sensei was excellent. The portions are a bit small but otherwise impeccable. The udon noodles were great too.

This place doesn't look like much for the outside of even the inside but the service was top notch and the food even better. The menu was very diverse with plenty of options and creations. The sushi was very fresh and the rolls were selected were outstanding. We where there on a Thursday night around 5:30 and it was pretty... More
