The sushi was fabulous and comparable to prices to other sushi restaurants I have been to. The wait staff was friendly and attentive.

Great sushi. Order before 6:00 pm to get discounts, depending on day of the week. All nigiri and rolls were outstanding. One child had the teriyaki steak which was all right but not as great.

We took other reviewers advice and booked using the open table app since this place always seems to be packed. Worked like a charm and we were seated promptly when we arrived. We had the oyster shooters and shrimp dynamite which I would recommend. My husband doesn't eat raw fish but decided to adventure in with a spicy tuna roll-... More

They serve good food cooked in the Japanese style. If you like Japanese food, you will like this restaurant; if you do not like Japanese style food I would suggest you eat someplace else.

Sansei in Waikoloa is one of our favorite places to eat. We decided to try it in Waikiki. Somewhat disappointed. The sushi was good. The Kalbi (a rib meat with Korean BBQ sauce) was terribly disappointing. That is my favorite dish in Hawaii and it should be melt in your mouth tender. The Kalbi at Sansei was tough and chewing,...

One of the best dinners we had in Waikiki, all of the sushi was delicious and the drinks were very tasty! Only complaint is that they don't open until 5 or 530.

We were in Honolulu 8 nights. We ate at Sansei Seafood every single night...sometimes take out, sometimes in the restaurant. It is so busy that it is difficult to obtain reservations, so plan ahead. It is on the second floor of the Marriot Hotel. Along with the Seafood restaurant, there is a steak house, both owned by the same family.... More

A comfortable spot for a dinner, ranging from informal to romantic or business, this restaurant can satisfy everybody. "Fish-lovers" of course but there are also vegetarian and meat options.

First off, there are NO instructions on how to get to their restaurant which is on the third floor of the Marriott Hotel (kinda. It's in the shops/mall portion by the Marriott). There is no website to tell you how to park (which you can get validated if you park in the correct parking structure - of course we parked... More

My husband doesn't really care for sushi but I dragged him out with the promise there would be other things on the menu. Great location in the Marriott and about a 7 minute walk from our hotel. Waitress was excellent and very helpful. We started with a shrimp appetizer, maybe dynamite shrimp? It was on their feature list. Really tasty.... More
