My husband doesn't really care for sushi but I dragged him out with the promise there would be other things on the menu. Great location in the Marriott and about a 7 minute walk from our hotel. Waitress was excellent and very helpful. We started with a shrimp appetizer, maybe dynamite shrimp? It was on their feature list. Really tasty.... More

Pleasant atmosphere, good food, nice music while sitting on the patio having dinner from the restraunt across the way. Apparently they prepare their food out of two different kitchens which i found interesting. They also shut down for about an hour.

I just happened to visit Sansei on a Saturday night when it was packed with customers during the dinner hour and was able to find a spot on the bar, which was also crowded. I was able to order a glass of CF Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir, which was light and smooth to the taste....something that I was looking... More

What a disappointment, there was very little to be positive about. From the poorly trained wait staff to the bland food Sansei should be at the bottom of your list when considering Japanese food in Waikiki. We ordered 9 dishes and only one could be described as even close to worth the price. The butter fish was probably the worst... More

Sushi was fresh and amazing. Good prices for Waikiki and Rosie was a good server. The kids steak dinner meal was excellent. Spider roll and the tanah roll both were excellent

I'm always hesitant to eat at hotel restaurants because there are all of the other wonderful places to eat outside of the hotel. We read the reviews and decided to give it a try and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was quite good as was the service. It's sushi so it's moderately priced. Check out or pics.

I went here on New Year's Eve for dinner, I had made a reservation online via Open Table about 1 month in advance because I knew it was going to be busy. I came here specifically for sushi and my parents ordered entrees. The sushi is awesome! The fish and other seafood was as fresh as can be. I got... More

The hostess did not provide a good first impression, as she was unaware of restaurant policies. If you can get past the hostesses, our waitress was friendlier and more knowledgeable of how the restaurant works. The food was excellent.

I had tried the Yaki Maki Salmon roll and shrimp tempura. Both were really delicious. The Yaki Maki was smaller than expected and for how much it cost but very tasty. Shrimp tempura was perfect ! I also had the pineapple lychee drink also a must try ! All around pricey but tasty if you go on a Sunday or... More
