Service was very good and prompt. Food was hot and extremely tasty. Had the Avocado boat to share with the table and then had their Bento box, which had a good assortment of items, sushi, dumpling, spring roll, seaweed salad and tempura shrimp. Have been several times and always had a pleasant experience.

Caters to grown ups in dress clothes. Delicious and well-priced, given the fancy table cloths and good wait staff. Enjoyable evening and delicious sashimi.

Waited for 10 minutes after call ahead seating. Told it would be 20 minutes more. Please train your hostess on proper introductions and estimating wait times. Twice experienced this in last month. Please get a clue on how to operate a business.

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon. Even though the restaurant was busy, we had prompt and thorough service. The setting was warm and comfortable, with a beautiful selection of luncheon choices. My friends were very happy with the vegetarian options. Looking forward to another visit!

This is our favorite restaurant in town, and we go there many times a year. We have never had an off night over the many years that we have been going there. Our friends from bigger cities who love sushi consistently say the sushi is as good as they get anywhere. Everything is very fresh and well prepared. It is... More

My husband and I were in town recently for a conference and dined at Sansu based on a recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed. We had the spring rolls, 3 different types of sushi rolls, a few beers, and some tea. The quality and flavors were both top notch. The atmosphere was perfect for dinner, we didn't have... More

The food at this restaurant is awesome and the service is, too. It is well worth a visit. All of the luncheon bentos are worth trying and the accompanying miso soup and salad are well prepared and fresh. I highly recommend stopping here if you like Japanese food.

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
