Best food on the Kohala Coast! I was so disappointed in the food in this area until I found Sansei. Great sushi, innovative, fresh, and thoughtful. Good wine and sake list. It was so good that I went back the next night too.

Went in early evening, several items were discounted until 6pm. We shared items, including the restaurant's recommended specials. Tempura vegetables were okay, nothing amazing. Mango salad roll pretty good. Asian shrimp cakes very good. Panko crusted ahi sushi roll - folks who had been there before said it wasn't as good this time as argula was wilted/soggy. We think for the special price we got leftovers from the day before rather than freshly made. Kid's katsu and noodles were fine. Casual place. Not that expensive.

Everything we've tried at Sansei was delicious. Our favorites include: Panko crusted Ahi sashimi shushing roll (the best sushi roll on the planet); shrimp dynamite (too good); miso Butterfish (melts in your mouth); Lobster & Blue Crab ravioli (a taste sensation); green tea ice cream for desert or homemade mud pie (oh my gosh). We love it so much and go often during our visits to the Big Island that we were happy to discover their happy hour discounts. Be sure to get there early, we're not the only ones that have discovered great food at a great price. :-) Aloha!

This Sushi restaurant had the best sushi and sashimi, very fresh! The service was great, even though our waiter said our food may take awhile to come out, it was out quickly and was everything we hoped for. The only negative is that the "pour" for an (alcohol) drink was measured. When we went to Roy's Restaurant across the way, it was a "free pour". Makes a difference in our tip!
We would recommend Sansei to anyone looking for good sushi and fun time.
