We were introduced to sushi the first time at this restaurant several years ago. We've been back multiple times and it always pleases us. Everything we've ordered has been good.

When the menu listed a Sashimi Sampler for $45, I assumed that it was just enough for one. But our server assured us that it was enough for two and, sure enough. ($45? ...sashimi for two?... in Hawaii?!) And, more importantly, it was very good with a nice variety. The service was great and the drinks were very good, as well. The atmosphere is so-so, but the value can't be beat.

Wow, talk about a superb night out. After drinks at Lava Lava our server recommended checking out Sansei for the live music. The guitarist was excellent, and the sushi was so good my girlfriend (who doesn't eat seafood and had never tried sushi) loved it enough to order more.
The place was packed, and it appears that it is a very popular restaurant. Not a "quaint quiet restaurant", but that's not what we were looking for anyways. If a fun night out and great food is what you're looking for, this is an excellent choice.

We were a party of 9 attending this wonderful restaurant for our Christmas dinner while away from home holidaying in Hawaii. I was a little anxious that being such a different cuisine to our usual roast Christmas dinner, my extended family would not be able to fully enjoy our dining experience. however, despite some hesitations, all of my family thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the meal. our waiter was extremely helpful in assisting us to plan our menu and order appropriate amounts. nothing was a bother and all requests were promptly attended to despite the restaurant being extremely busy.
this was my second visit to Sansei and each time I have been delighted with all aspects of the experience. the décor, the delicious food, the access to the chef's as they are preparing the food, the friendly and polite attendance by the waiters, and of course the reasonable price is excellent value.
and make no mistake this restaurant is not just your usual sushi, it is magnificently prepared to provide taste sensations with every bite!
It will be awhile before I can make it bake to Hawaii, but a return trip will definitely include a meal at Sansei!

We had been away from The Big Island for a couple of years and just returned. One of our first dinners was at an old favorite - Sensei. The food, service and price continue to be excellent. We got enough great food to fill us, a cosmo, red wine and 4 beers for about $85. A bargain. We'll be back. Sensei has earned our -- and so many others - patronage.
