We're long time Sansei Sushi lovers. Gonna throw that out. We've visited several locations over the years, and food here rarely disappoints. We visited the Big Island the week of the 4th of July and did not realize how impacted every restaurant would be (silly...More

Sansei is definitely da bomb. Food is excellent here. We went for all the recommended plates on the menu. We were not disappointed. I suggest making reservations a few days before cause they are super busy. Enjoy!

Our party of 7 had great food/drinks here. Food was not overpriced as I feared and drinks were very reasonable for the area! I recommend here and would eat again.

Great choice for good sushi, crowd pleasing rolls, and great drinks. Tired of hotel and prices, hit the Queens Shops for a dip in the wasabi!

The restaurant has a website with the menu. The price for the food is on par with all the other restaurants in Hawaii. They are all pricy.

They have a bar there, so within a few drinks you will absorb into the scenery of what everyone else is wearing anyway.
