“Very nice and satisfying meal...”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

I went here for dinner and found the ambience to my liking.

I ordered the unagi and was impressed by how it was presented --- when my order arrived, it was blow-torched in front of me!

The dessert named All Blacks (after all, I was in NZ!) was a standout --- black sesame ice cream and black sesame panna cotta.

I will going back here!

“Dipping anything form Sansui in soy sauce would be a mistake!”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Went to Sansui for a late night dinner in early April. The restaurant was fairly empty, so I received lots of attention initially. I ordered miso soup, agedashi tofu, the medium combo and some green tea. The food was all excellent. The fish in particular was some of the best I have had in a very long time. It was fresh, the texture was as it should be, and each piece was interesting. To the sashimi, the chefs added a little something to each piece to make them REALLY tasty. Dipping anything in soy sauce would be a mistake.

My only complaint was the service. All of my food came out at roughly the same time, instead of being paced. And, I felt a little neglected towards the end of the meal. But, this wasn't bad enough to subtract a star!

I'll definitely go back the next time I am in Auckland.
