While staying at the Marriott, we decided to dine at Sansei's in the Queens Market Place just walking distance away. Here's the scoop on Sansei's.
Nice furninshings, Japanese artwork and lighting throughout. Combination of suchi bar, tables and private booths in two large rooms. This is a busy place, so reservations are encouraged.
Our server gal appeared harried and was bouncing all over the place. They clearly need more servers here on busy nights. We were there on a Saturday. At one pioint, she was a bit terse and then had a Come to Jesus meeting with herself after she saw our expressions and returned to apologize. Good for her. No more problems after that.
I eat at sushi places all over and this place would rate "above average" with me. We ordered saimen with udon noodles and a sushi roll. Both dishes were well prepared and tasted good. The other suchi and food presentations I observed on other tables looked well done as well.
Cost to food and experience: B
This place is a bit pricey because it's a "tourist joint," but the food quality was good. Hey, it's Hawaii so you gotta expect this.
Summary: A good place to eat. I would probably dine here on a M-TH day of the week to avoid the crowd. Make reservations and get a nice booth. If you like Japanese food, you'll enjoy this place.
Please take a minute to rate my review because I helped you with some tips. Thanks. Aloha!
