They are quite famous for variety of creative sushi rolls. They are all delicious. The service is very pleasant. If you are not a sushi lover, go with their steaks, especially 22 oz steak which is quite tender and delicious. I strongly recommend that you make reservation, especially summer when people somtime que up outside of restaurant.While in Kona, this is the restaurant that you would enjoy.

Sansei on the Big Island is by far our favorite restaurant in Hawaii.

The sushi is creative, exciting and full of incredible flavors. We never seem to get past trying different kinds of sushi though there are many other options in the steak/seafood entrees. The menu can be a bit overwhelming, so it's good to ask your server for some popular choices on a first time visit.

The location of this Sansei is perfect - tucked in the Queen's Marketplace at Waikoloa Resort area. It seems a little quieter than the Sansei restaurants on Maui, but with the same high quality food. No views, just a nice atmosphere inside. Still, reservations are VERY important in the busy months of summer. Happy hour prices are fantastic but come with crazy crowds, but you can dine after the rush to slow down the pace and savor.

This past trip, our servers were Eila and Sherri - both were great fun, courteous, professional. Eila was especially helpful in suggesting some new sushi options that we should try. (We have a serious problem trying lots of new things because our favorites are so good... and can only eat so much!)

In the same complex as Sansei is a convenient grocery store for picking up snacks for the next day.

Bottom line, we'll always return for several dinners at Sansei when on the Big Island.

We sat at the sushi bar and enjoyed the experience here. Very busy but fast friendly service in an upscale environment.
The selection was superb and the presentation was artwork!

We went to Sensei's early bird dining on Monday night. Arrived 15 minutes before 5PM and the line was already lengthy. The deal is 50% off which valuable sinceSensei isn't cheap. The food was excellent and the service superior.

This was my first time here but my boyfriend has eaten at all the Sansei restaurants on the Hawaiian Islands. The food/sushi was as good as he claimed it to be. We took advantage of their half price deal on Thursdays. The place was packed and we were lucky enough to get a seat. We ordered the signature dishes and everything was truly amazing. We even splurged on dessert. You can't go wrong with anything on their menu. Probably the best sushi I ever had.
