Had a wonderful meal at Sanei with teriyaki chicken, shrimp tempura, California rolls and some mango crab rolls. We sat outside over looking Aston Waikiki hotel and the tiki lounge and could listen and watch the outdoor activities. The waitress was training another girl and they were both friendly and provided great friendly service. Pleased with our meal.

Had a late dinner on Wednesday and as usual the food as well as the service was great. Wife loves the oyster shooters and the food is up to the usual standard that they set(high). Recommend is you like Japanese as well as some local favorites then eat here.

First time at Marriott Waikiki and Sansei noted as being attached to hotel. SO incredible went twice. Service friendly, prompt and perfect. Huge menu with Happy Hour selections along with discount if staying at the Marriott. Opens at 5:30 so if you want to sit on lanai fronting the beach with ocean and palm tree view arrive early. There are... More

Overall we've been disappointed with restaurants here. Sensei rates as one of the better ones. The Dynamite Shrimp is fabulous and my husband enjoyed his Ahi & Shrimp Cake. My Jerk Chicken was extremely bland. Service was fine despite the fact the restaurant was very busy. Altogether, a reasonable choice for dinner.

You come to Hawaii and you order octopus salad. You get a whole bowl of slice cucumber and very bland octopus, no flavor. Your exeptiations are better than you would get at you local susi restaurant at home. Waitress was somewhat attentive.

We didn't have a reservation and strong at the bar. The food was excellent. Sides are enough for two people. Great service huge wine selection and if you eat at the bar you can order from the Asian restaurant or the steak house.
