We went to Sansu before a performance at the Wharton Center. I had called ahead to get reservations, and am very glad I did so, because the place got packed within about 10 minutes of our being seated. If possible, you should try the floor tables, which provide a unique dining experience. You might want to consider two things: joint condition and slip-off shoes. While the floor tables are very comfortable, if you have knee or hip problems they might be a bit awkward to get into and out of. And since stocking feet is a requirement, loafers or some other slip-off shoes are recommended. I wore shoes that tied, so it took me longer to get the shoes off and on during the meal. The selection of Japanese food is wonderful. They have sushi and sashimi of every sort, and a professional sushi staff to make sure your food is as fresh as can be. They also offer quite a selection of bento boxes. I ordered the chicken teriyaki bento and enjoyed certain elements of the bento, but found the sushi to be a bit too much on the kelp side for my liking. The tempura shrimp and vegetables were delightful, as was the chicken and rice. The miso soup was delicious, and the ginger dressing on the salad was quite tasty as well. Overall this was a great visit to a truly quality Japanese restaurant with plenty of selection and dining options. We will go again - and I'll wear loafers. Plus it is one of the restaurants that accept the Wharton discount card, which is a bonus on top of everything good about Sansu.
