After checking 3 other Bend area sushi restaurants, we decided on Shinsei (4-23-14) - I thought it would be my last choice from reading trip advisor in advance. The menu online is limited but upon arriving at the restaurant it was extensive including daily specials. The prices were most reasonable. There were many people eating there(always a good sign) and the sushi chef greeted me with a captivating smile! In fact the entire staff(5+) were genuinely friendly. One server gave us a "sake lesson" -bringing several samples to try. We chose "Mirror of Truth". We ordered 3 sushi rolls- one being the daily special -a tropical mix with a coconut sauce (specially made at Shinsei). I highly recommend a visit to this place-we will go back on our next trip to Bend.
