I love Japanese food either traditionally prepared or with a bit of fusion/innovation but I found this restaurant drowned every dish in too much sauce. While the sauces were tasty they overpowered the delicacy of the dish, so you missed the subtly of flavours. Having said that the wait staff were friendly, the dishes nicely presented and the atmosphere pleasant.

I suggest making reservations since this place fills up very quickly. The variety of sushi rolls and other options are fantastic. The sashimi is fresh and delicious.

OK, so here is the bottom line. Sansei offers an extensive menu selection of sushi, rolls and very creative dishes. Tapas serving sizes allow for sampling several items which are brought to your table as they are ready from the chef. Ask your server for suggestions. There is also a Sansei in Kapalua on Maui. This location has both indoor and outside seating. The 3rd floor location offers a nice panoramic view of Waikiki beach across the street. Our server was very attentive. The food was terrific. If meat & potatoes is your first generation (Issei) of fun & flavorful food -- and if ethnic food is your second generation (Nisei) of food -- then Sansei is your third generation of true enjoyment.

Fabulous seafood and sushi restaurant right in the Marriott Waikiki hotel. Look for the special Sushi deals on Sunday and Tuesday. Everything here was done to perfection. A bit pricey, but worth it. No views, just a nice restaurant. Great wait staff.
