I went to Sansui last night with a friend for dinner and after seeing all the rave reviews on tripadvisor I really thought I would be in for an amazing meal. The food was just alright. We ordered edamame and gyoza which were good but these two things are not hard to mess up. Then we ordered four different sushi... More

I've been to this restaurant many times for the last few years, and I'm never disappointed with the quality of the foods here. Keep it up and see you again soon !

Very good Japanese restaurant --- it really feels like being at Ueno or Shinjuku! We shared a "TAKE sushi assortiment" as well as a "Menu porc saute' a la gingembre". We arrived almost close to the kitchen closure (9h30) but we managed to eat without problem and indeed the service was really without any complains. The restaurant furniture is simple... More

We love this place. I have been to this restaurant with my family at least 50 times. Service is super friendly and they are nice with kids which is a very rare feature in Geneva. Sushi is always fresh, and they have a full and original menu of Japanese dishes. The Udon are excellent…

Expensive and not good for dinner. Save your money and go elsewhere. Lunch menus are ok.

Sansui is an excellent sushi place in Geneva. Service is good, food is great, decorum very simple. Sansui proposes lunch specials around CHF 25-30, which makes it a good place for a healthy lunch. The place is a bit on the high end in terms of prices but quality is excellent. Reservations are recommended.

Being a Japanese food lover, I seek out restaurants with Japanese ownership. This is one such place. The food quality and service is at Japanese standards (very high). The price is reasonable for sushi places in Geneva. One tip: do make reservations.

ジュネーブで一番好きな和食レストランです。 お値段もスイスの割にお手頃で、お寿司は本当に美味しいです。 I am Japanese and this is truely an amazing Japanese restaurant. I even find sushi better than the ones I used to eat back in Japan. Atmosphere is also nice, and very spacious so you will not have to wait. For a price in Geneve, I find it reasonable.

One of the best Japanese restaurants in GVA. It is not a cheap place (but there is no such a Japanese restaurant in GVA), but the food is of very good quality. Especially the sushi. But the Japanese grill also. For lunchtime, possible sushi menu which is not expensive at all. And do not forget to taste the sake and... More

Excellent food, very fresh, some sushi are quite special (tender crab). Ordered a dish that was off the menu and very kindly accepted to cook it for me. Fairly traditional decoration. Will definitely go back to taste 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.
