We came here based on a personal recommendation from our front desk attendant and it was a good find. At 5:15, we didn't have reservations on a Friday night, but they made room for us, we had a few specialties, and ended up with a discount for arriving and ordering before 6. The prices are reasonable, and we had great... More

The food was delicious. The restaurant was a little run down. It was crowded and loud. I didn't think our table looked particularly clean. Service was good and fast. Food was worth it.

I don't even like sushi that much, but I love this place and keep coming back to it. The crab cakes are incredible, shrimp dishes are very good, and yes, even the sushi tastes great here.

I've been sharing with people to go to sansei sushi for years, but no more. Service was inconsistent, appetizers served after main courses. wrong food delivered. no manager came over to offer any explanation or apology. think twice before you go

We really loved our hot sake with our sushi - we got some Unagi and also their tempura appetizers were great. We got there early so we missed the karaoke night. Crowded but not overwhelming -- more like busy because the food is good. I recommend booking a reservation ahead of time with open table.

Again, another restaurant in Hawaii ranked highly but, for me, is quite average. If you're a sushi fan like myself, don't expect much. The actual quality of the fish is good, which makes sense because of the proximity to the ocean. However, the craftmanship of the sushi rolls, plus the quality of the other ingredients is just average. This is... More

Nice restaurant. we had to wait 45 mins for a table- not really impressed with the food. we expected a lot from reading all the reviews. The lobster ramen was a disappointment. the broth was very good but the noodles was a let down. pricey.

The food is very good. My wife is a big sushi person and really enjoyed the food here. I do not eat sushi but had the seafood pasta and it was excellent. However, the service was very poor. The waiter we had was extremely inattentive. He seemed only interested in his younger female customers. Apparently, according to my better half,... More

My person said it was memorable and I'd have to agree. A bit of a wait for a table but we ate at the bar, which was good quick service. Another spot for different rolls than you find on the mainland. Decent prices as well, would definitely go back.

Thank Scott S
