On or second trip to Maui, we had to plan to come back to Sansei, and they definitely did not disappoint. All of the food is delicious and we really loved the miso butterfish, Ahi carpaccio, and their Friday specialty roll. The service was great as well. We are going back before we head home! A MUST DO when in... More

We went on a Monday when prices are discounted for Hawaiians and visitors and were thrilled with the food. Best sashimi, ocean salad and sushi rolls. Waiter discounted our dinner even more because my partner is a Marine. Best spot on Maui

Last night I returned to this restaurant. It has been 9 years since my last visit. My husband and I sat at the "sushi bar". Chef Mark prepared our meal for us. He was a most excellent chef. In addition he was personable and friendly. He helped us in placing our order. Now the most important part. I have eaten... More

Food has a fusion of many different cultures. Sunday and Monday have specials. Try the Ahi. The service is above and beyond.

We were seated immediately and our waitress was very helpful. The food was very good. Some interesting sushi rolls with unique combinations. Seaweed salad was fresh and crunchy. Seafood pasta had an unusual sauce but good. Overall very nice evening out- just think the prices in Maui are a bit outrageous!

Went to the late night 50% off special menu. It would have been a more decent visit if it wasn't for the very bad karaoke singers (that's a stretch calling them that). It was unbearably loud with the worst destruction of songs we have ever been subjected to. It was a total eat & run. I know they advertise 'Free... More

Sansei has been a Maui favorite for decades and for good reason. The food is delicious, the wine list is extensive and the prices are fair. They offer a 25% early bird discount on most items in the menu which are ordered before 6 PM. Make a reservation to avoid the long line if you get there when it opens.... More

My boyfriend and I LOVE Sansei!! We get multiple shrimp tempura rolls every time we go. It is simple and amazing. The service is great as well. It is a bit pricey, but they have multiple different happy hours/discount pricing times. It's seriously the best sushi on the West side of Maui. Oh yeah, and the fried macadamia nut ice... More

The wife and I decided to try sansei. We were excited as we are sushi lovers and heard good things. We are surrounded by an ocean. The rolls came out of in about 2 min which means they were pre done. As well, the knife skills on whom ever cut them were very culinary school at best. They were thin... More
