Innovative Sushi with a local twist. Not to be missed this restaurant uses the best of local foods to create fantastic dishes. The miso yaki butterfish melts in your mouth. Pay special attention to the award winning dishes. Try one or more.

The service was excellent from start to finish. The sushi was not as good as the past lacking flavor and the potions were pathetic for the price even in Hawaii. The menu is too large to make anything very well.

We were a party of four, all connoisseurs of maki rolls etc. I would rate Sansei as good but not exceptional regarding their sushi fare. The ingredients did not seem to stand out; e.g.the tempura in the make roll was not crunchy.

Had an appetizer and sushi dinner, excellent service and food quality was very good. Big menu and lots of options. Special half price Sunday and Monday 5-6 but heard you need to be in line at 4. Definitely recommend

Great variety and very good sushi but I think they're taking advantage of not having much competition. Expensive for what it was. Atmosphere just so-so, didn't seem that clean.

We have been to other locations on Kauai, Maui and Oahu and this one did not disappoint us. As always, the fish is fresh. They do have a happy hour where things are 50% off if you go in the first hour of dinner.

Staying at a local resort we decided to grab some sushi here for dinner one night. When we first arrived we were seated immediately. Our server started out quick and responsive but just about disappeared shortly after when a larger party sat down. Our sushi...More

The restaurant has a website with the menu. The price for the food is on par with all the other restaurants in Hawaii. They are all pricy.

They have a bar there, so within a few drinks you will absorb into the scenery of what everyone else is wearing anyway.
