Really good sushi; fresh, original, and well executed. The service both at the bar and in the restaurant was fantastic. Lots of value on the menu, no need to break the bank. FYI... really geeky and well priced wine list, the bar includes a beautiful Cruvinet, kudos on that!!

Visited this restaurant on the advice of the hotel concierge. Very good recommendation. We shared appetizers and an entree each. Everything was well prepared and tasted great. Service was good and prices were reasonable for Waikiki. The next day after snacking all day we stopped in an sat at the shushi bar for a few rolls. Again very good. The... More

I recently had the opportunity to visit Sansei Kapalua two consecutive nights. It had been several years since my last visit which I remember as being excellent. However on these two visits the sashimi and sushi was soft. I was flabbergasted. Soft sashimi almost always means that the fish was pre frozen and thawed. While certainly edible, I would never...

We have frequented this restaurant several times over the past 10 years, however we did skip the last 3 years since new restaurants were opening and our time in Oahu limited. Last week we made our annual trek to Honolulu and decided to revisit Sansei....... BIG MISTAKE, the place was empty considering the last few times we had to wait... More

met up with a few friends and decided to have dinner. We ordered pretty much every appetizer on the menu and a few dinner items. The service was good, albeit a few times where our waitress forgot our drink orders. in her defense, the place was jammed packed. 80% locals, and 20% Japanese, this place is authentic and delicious. Must... More

Of course being in Hawaii on your anniversary will make any decent experience a good one. However, we are foodies! And the food here was Excellent. We don't eat sushi, but the remaining menu was equally appealing. The service was EXCEPTIONAL and the views - great! We were staying at the Marriott so that made the choice very easy. I... More

The sushi here was very good and reasonably priced. It took a little while to get a table, but we were able to enjoy some drinks at the bar while we waited and the hostesses were very helpful and came to find us.

This restaurant was everything we were told and more. We had an 8:15 reservation but stopped by about 6:30 and got a great table. I think my favorite item was the Panko Ahi, but I also loved the Sunset Flower and my husband loved the shrimp dynamite. Extremely fresh and flavorful. These people pay attention to detail. I can't eat... More

Wow, we were definitely impessed with the quality at this restaurant. My husband and I had dinner here with friends in Honolulu our first night, and it was amazing. We sampled a variety of sushi and it was all delicious and nicely prepared. The mango crab rolls, unagi rolls, and the yaki maki were delicious. The staff was also extremely... More
