To quench my thirst I quickly ordered the white wine flight. I love flights. Honestly, put almost anything in a set of 3’s and I’ll almost always order it!

And of course this glorious apple tart was for dessert. This was EXCELLENT! The apples weren’t mushy at all, very light and it didn’t overwhelm the dish. I want to go back just for this!

All of our dishes at Sansei were so tasty and full of flavor. We found that the food all tasted very fresh, and the portions were great for the value. We definitely want to come back and try some of their other signature dishes!
