Decided to drive out of our way a little for dinner here since I had a good deal with a groupon. All in all we both liked our food and would rate it as "good". Definitely not great but not good enough that we'd drive the 11 miles from south county to return. Pluses are its made fresh to order,... More

My daughter chose sushi for her birthday lunch--we were hungry for sushi and sadly disappointed. The floors were indeed sticky, as well as the table...and the highchair. Easy to please, we cleaned our own table and highchair off. Service was horrible. The man taking our order ran off IN THE MIDDLE of me placing our order three times. As we... More

This is a great option for choose-your-own order-at-the-counter Asian food. We eat here almost every time we come to St. Louis. It is located in the trendy Old Webster area. We only wish it would open earlier in the day!

We loved our meals at SanSai Japanese Grill in St. Louis. The food tasted wonderful, and it was fairly inexpensive.

Good, but a bit pricey. Some of the dishes are better than others. Go and experiment. You probably won't be disappointed.

Good assortment of options, almost all of them healthy, all of them delicious. It's a casual place, nicely located in the heart of Webster Groves.

You know that sushi you can get at the local supermarket? That's what the sushi tastes like at SanSai. A chain, the fish quality, while certainly edible, does not pack the flavors & textures of a true sushi bar. SanSai is a chain that masquerades as sushi-bar. Sashimi quality not worth the value pricing.

This is one of my families favorite goto restaurants when we need a fast healthy dinner out. Not a fan of sushi anywhere here in the Midwest so I stay away from the sushi, but the entrees are always fresh and good. My son likes the tempura shrimp better than fried shrimp at Red Lobster. Always a good place to... More

This is not sushi at it's best, but for a fast meal, it sure beats alternatives for fast food. The cabbage salad is very good. Pot stickers - not so much.
