The Sansei Seafood Restaurant is a Japanese restaurant in the "Market" area of the Waikoloa resorts. It offers a large selection of sushi, sashimi and rolls. Everything we tried was very good. They have beers available on tap. The service was attentive, friendly and efficient.

This was our third location of Sansei and we were not disappointed! They have an excellent menu with fresh sushi choices at reasonable prices. The waiter was very helpful.

The restaurant has a website with the menu. The price for the food is on par with all the other restaurants in Hawaii. They are all pricy.
