Excellent staff, welcoming and helpful - space is tiny but nicely set up. It's obviously not cheap but that's no surprise when it comes to japanese food. Have absolutely enjoyed all the meals as everything is super fresh. Even vegetarian sushis are tasty - a rare thing. Would definitely recommend.

I was expecting more from them.. After all they said everything was homemade.. But the sushi tastes like normal sushi not that special..

Thank you for your comment. We are a little surprised that "not that special" granted us a "terrible" ranking, but we understand your standards are high, and we appreciate your honesty. More

My friend and I were absolutely devastated by the closure of an excellent Japanese restaurant of long standing in Versoix and so we were on a lunchtime prowl for a "substitute" in Geneva. We tried Sansui which provided friendly service and a limited lunch menu which was fine. We went for the sushis and they were of good quality, sufficient... More

Thank you very much for your detailed comment and kind words. Just to be precise, we cook our sauces and preparations with "normal" shoyu, but we serve a less salted shoyu to our customers, which is appreciated especially with high quality sushi and sashimi. We hope next time you will have an even more enjoyable time and dinner, which you... More

Firstly, I was a little upset to be misled by the fact that the restaurant changed ownership and I was not informed when making the reservation. I think customers should be made aware of that. Nevertheless, we were happily surprised by the new, cool, look of the place and greeted by a lovely waitress - dynamic and young. We ordered... More

I have been here a few times and the food quality and the service has always been good. I love to have the prawn tempura and the matcha ice cream (green tea powder ice cream). I highly recommend this restaurant if you like Japanese food. They also have a sushi place next door.

Just wanted to grab some sushi for a light dinner and ended up tasting half the menu! The fish is of highest quality, plates are super tasty and appetising, staff is very helpful, friendly and passionate for its job and the freshest food (and the tip is collected for a staff trip to Japan). They have finest tea,a choice quality... More

My wife and I used to enjoy an occasional outings at this restaurant. However from our latest visit in October, to our surprised, the restaurant was undergone a re-decoration which we later learnt that it was due to the change of the owner. From what we saw, the new owners are very new in the business. At lunch time, menu... More

For over 20 years, Sansui has set the standard with an authentic and varied Japanese cuisine, both homemade and affordable. Traditional dishes, hard to find in Geneva, such as udon, soba, gyoza, yakitori, tempura, tonkatsu, tofu... Quality sushi made with fresh wasabi, and yakiniku barbecue at the table. Large selection of hand-crafted sakés by the glass, Japanese beers, whiskies, and other typical drinks. Bento of the day. Shaded courtyard in summer.
