“great, fresh, local seafood/sushi”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

5 years ago, the sushi was really good (memorable) and this place was busy. Today, nothing has changed. Very good sushi, very fresh, and still quite busy though we got lucky and were immediately seated on a weeknight. If you like sushi, definitely check this place out.

“Excellent Hawaiian Japanese food”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Excellent seafood, sushi and steak (though the steak at the Canoe House at the Mauna Lani was better.) A bit busy, especially when trying to get in during happy hour to get the 50% dinner discount (no reservations accepted during happy hour)!

“It aint cheap, but it sure is tasty, lol”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Great sushi, great steaks. This was my second time there (first time 4 yrs ago). Had an excellent roll and then surf and turf for dinner. Great steak with a lobster tail and a crabcake (the crabcake was so-so, but it was all crab.

went to Sansei for an early dinner, 6:15. It was packed and if we didnt have reservations I dont know if we would have waited. Great food and service.

“Why go? Panko Crusted Ahi Tuna Sashimi Roll that's why!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by college friend of eldest son - a local who batted 1000 with her recommendations. I could have eaten the panko crusted ahi tuna roll at every meal. Fabulous. My wife really enjoyed her steak - fork tender. My youngest, who is not adventurous stuck with ramen, which he gulped up. Overall, great food, the service though was just ok. I will go back
