They have a great lunch menu. Items are always fresh. In my opinion they have the best sushi in the Lansing area. Service is professional and prompt.

Celebrated a birthday at Sansu. Eight of us sat on the traditional side - where you remove your shoes and the tables are floor level, however, it is a bench so you aren't sitting on your legs. Our 80+ yr old parents sat there fine, however, getting up required a little assistance. There is also a side with regular tables.... More

We were on the road and needed lunch. Found this place on line when researching Japanese restaurants. It's a largish place with both Western-style tables and Japanese seating. We ordered from the lunch menu. We had an udon soup and a sushi/sashimi bento. Everything was delicious! The miso soup and salad that came with the bento were very good. The... More

Although the food was superb, the service was below mediocre! Our waitress was very impatient and simply disrespectful! She would not respond to our table, having to wait more than 30 minutes to get a question answered!! Overall very disappointed with the service here.

My husband and I have been coming here since Sansu first opened. Hands down, they have the best sushi around! We drive 40 miles as often as we can to enjoy it. I have lots of favorite rolls, but the one I always order is the Devil roll. Yum!

Nice place to go on a date. Good selection of sakè, and our waiter was really nice. I recommend getting the red dragon roll it was delicious! Will definitely visit here again before I leave Michigan.

It was a nice place to have dinner on a first date. The meals are decently sized, and the sushi is actually GOOD, unlike a few other places in the area. It is obviously a little pricey, but you can't find sushi anywhere that isn't. The restaurant was really beautiful too, and right by campus so it is convenient. First... More

Always excellent sushi. Earlybird specials on simple rolls and "small dishes". This is a must visit restaurant when in the Lansing-East Lansing area. The best sushi restaurant for years running. Tuesday night is student night, so unless you're a student avoid it, as the place is packed with students getting the 10% discount.
