I enjoyed the Teriyaki Salmon and all the extras were more than I could eat. Excellent wait staff and a very clean establishment. I highly recommend stoppingby and enjoying a fune meal at a very reasonable price.

I loved the Avocado Boat, but was less impressed by the teriyaki chicken, which I probably should have stayed away from and gone for some sushi. Tuna Tartar was wonderful, as was the service on a very busy Saturday evening. Be sure to make reservation, because this place is VERY popular. There were at least 10 people waiting for tables...

What can I say. Excellent food and great service. I happen to stumble upon it when the cab dropped me off (DD's Downtown Taxi, great company). I'm glad i did.

Group of friends and I went for a little break from studying, we booked the table that day (and actually had to change our booking time to later on, which they were able to accommodate) I got sushi, (Alaskan Roll 👌🏼 beautiful), very filling! 10 quite large pieces and I was stuffed! We were all very happy with the food... More

We had tempura sushi and dumplings all rated very good, complimentary miso soup and salad. Service was very good, maybe the place is a bit noisy, but you expect it when folks are having fun. Would definatly go back when in E Lansing.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Service was A+ even though we walked in 20 minutes before the kitchen closed. We sat in the unique optional seating section where you take off your shoes, walk above the tables, and slide yourself partially into a hole! Cool! A+ for the fried green tea ice cream, sweet potato roll, house salad and dressing,... More

We went into the restaurant based on TA reviews, but we ordered sushi to go, which was probably a mistake. We sat at the bar with a glass of wine while waiting. The place was very busy, and is not your typical sushi restaurant - very different. The food was very good, but sauces, etc. on the side didn't work... More

I have now visited Sansu 4 times and each visit has been terrific. The space is attractive, the quality of the sushi is excellent, the service is prompt and the prices, while a bit high, are not unreasonable given the quality of the food. If you are from the east or west coasts, the variety of sushi will not compare... More

We go here often for their wonderful sushi. Tends to be crowded in evenings and at lunch, but that means it's good, right? Restaurant is nicely set up, sushi good, and friends have been very pleased with non-sushi choices. This is one of our son's favorite places as well. Wait staff is attentive without being in the way. Highly recommend.

Very friendly greeting, seated at the embedded tables, service was immediate. We each had different sakes. The server helped each of us choose an appropriate flavor and dryness-level. The food was excellent. Soup and salad lifted our palates, while the sushi that followed was attractive, fresh, and flavorful.
