Sansei is a restaurant that I’ve been dying to eat at for a loonnnnng time. I’ve heard so much about their excellent sushi, and thought that it would be the perfect place for date night.
Sansei is located on the 3rd floor in the Waikiki Beach Marriot. Sansei validates for $12 in the parking structure, or you can try and find street parking – which we scored!
We made reservations for February 13th to avoid the Valentine’s Day rush. Good thing too, it was still very crowded!
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!
Jarden and I ended up sharing 4 plates.
One of their award-winning dishes that Sansei is known for, make sure to try the Panko-Crusted Fresh Ahi Sashimi.
This was so creamy, Sansei’s Shrimp Dynamite is a definite winner.
We got two rolls – The Bagel Roll and Spicy Tuna Roll. The Bagel Roll contained salmon and cream cheese. Both were delicious!
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!
