Hidden behind the Gare Cornavin in the neighborhood called Les Grottes, Sansui is very centrally located but easy to miss. It is a cosy small restaurant with excellent food and good service. Take public transport or leave the car at Cornavin parking. We had lunch and enjoyed it very much. I didn't rate 5 because the selection of gluten free... More

This is a very good japonese restaurant, varied choice, very copious and tasty bento box for lunch, varied and excellent choices of main meal, with vegetarian options. High quality sushis and sashimis, very fresh fish, tasty. A perfect choice for lunch, and by summer I love to go there for a dinner outside on their terrace.

If you are craving for homemade sushis, this is the place to be. The selection is great and price is acceptable. The staff are very attentive and kind. They give you warm towel when you arrive. They also have Japanese beer and sake. They also have a selection of curry rice and fried skewers. Wonderful experience! Might be crowded during... More

I love Japanese cuisine and sushi. I loved my experience at Sansui: better sushi than most other places, and a nice variety of Japanese fare that I wasn't familiar with. The staff was very helpful in helping me understand what is what. They seem to have a passion for Japanese culture. Following their advice, for the first time in ages,... More

As highlighted in other people's review, staff members are excellent, super friendly and nice. As a starter, we ordered "Edamame (beans)", "Gyoza (dumplings)" and "Kushi-katsu (selected pork)", which are all good! especially we liked 'Gyoza'. It is also a fun for foreigners to grinding sesames by ourselves before eating "Kushi-katsu". Only areas of improvements are 1) different types of wine... More

Excellent staff, welcoming and helpful - space is tiny but nicely set up. It's obviously not cheap but that's no surprise when it comes to japanese food. Have absolutely enjoyed all the meals as everything is super fresh. Even vegetarian sushis are tasty - a rare thing. Would definitely recommend.

I have veen living in Geneva for 1 year now and was really looking for a good Sushi place (previously living in Barcelona). This place has made the cut. Good service, very tasty food and good price-quality. For sure I will be going back there! They don't have many tables, so I suggest you call to book a table. I... More

For over 20 years, Sansui has set the standard with an authentic and varied Japanese cuisine, both homemade and affordable. Traditional dishes, hard to find in Geneva, such as udon, soba, gyoza, yakitori, tempura, tonkatsu, tofu... Quality sushi made with fresh wasabi, and yakiniku barbecue at the table. Large selection of hand-crafted sakés by the glass, Japanese beers, whiskies, and other typical drinks. Bento of the day. Shaded courtyard in summer.
