We have been dining and enjoying Sansei for over ten years now.  It is quite simply one of our favorite restaurants in Hawaii.  The Waikiki Sansei (there are also locations on Maui and the Big Island) recently completed a much needed makeover and now is better than ever.  They have rearranged the Sushi Bar so it faces the dining room, changed the tables and chairs and added new seating outside.  There is even a dedicated room for small groups or parties.  While the exterior hardware has changed dramatically, the food has not changed and is as good as ever.  On this visit we sat outside andwent 100% Sushi.  The outside tables overlook Kalakaua Avenue or the hotel across the street.  It was very noisy with music coming from Tiki's Bar across the way.  My daughter started with the Little Ninja Keiki Meal ($8.95).  This is off the Keiki (Kids) Menu.  Rice, Soybeans, Shrimp and Sushi.  While she devoured everything on the plate, she still had room for a bowl of Miso Soup ($2.95).  The Miso Soup was hot and topped with a few pieces of Tofu and Green Onion .  The Sansei Ahi Poke with Maui Onions ($13.95) was fantastic.  Fresh raw Ahi Tuna in a light soy sauce dressing with sweet Maui Onions and Cucumber.  This was really fresh and delicious.  I love the Dragonfly Roll ($18.95).  This is an inside-out Spicy Tuna Roll topped with Ahi Sashimi and Avocado.  The Aioli Sauce has just a hint of heat.  The Caterpillar Roll ($15.95) is also one of our favorites.  Heck all of this stuff is a favorite.  You just cannot go wrong at Sansei.  The Caterpillar is a tasty combination of Unagi (Eel) and creamy avocado.  Yum!  Always like to enjoy the "69" Roll ($12.95).  This is a California Roll topped with Unagi.  The Spider Roll ($11.95) is Crispy Tempura Soft Shell Crab, Cucumber and Kaiware with Sweet Thai Chili Sauce and Unagi Glaze.  You cannot go wrong at Sansei.  The service is excellent and the food terrific.  In addition to Sushi, Sansei serves Seafood, Pasta, Chops, Chicken, Lobster and steaks.  You can go for Sushi or enjoy a complete fine dining menu with entrees running $22 to $29.  In the mood for a great steak?  Sansei has a sister restaurant in the same space.  It is called D.K.'s Steakhouse.  The "Paniolo Rib Eye" here is one of the best steaks in Hawaii.  Search this blog for more info.  Whether you are a local or tourist visiting Waikiki, Sansei should be on your dinner list.
