The Food was HORRIBLE!! We have eaten there several time before but this time was the last. It was HORRIBLE! The duck breast usually served with potatoes had a TINY amount of greens under it. The Japanese Jerk Spice Chicken was not fresh, seemed like...More

The food is top notch here and on top of that, you can get 50% off your bill on Sunday and Monday by showing up for their Happy Hour at 5:30-6:00!! Best deal on Maui!

All of the sushi was divine, but you cannot order uni just anywhere. It was top notch, as too was the service. And, for the non-sushi eaters in the party, plenty of other yummy choices on the menu. And they managed a party of 24...More

We had a great time at Sansei the other night. My hubby and I had been here last time we were on the island, and remembered it well. Two of our four were unfamiliar with a sushi restaurant, and Sansei had great options for us...More

Alright you have to line up at 4:00 pm on Sun or Mon for the 5:00- 6:00 pm. The one hour wait is definitely worth it because the food is prepared to gourmet standards - the service is quick and professional by Brian N., who...More

During our two-week vacation, we attempted to make a reservation at Sansei in Kapalua a couple of times, it was completely booked every night until 9pm. Then one day we were in Kihei, and thought we’d visit the Kihei location without a reservation by sitting...More

Aweful! Maui is on an island so why the outrageous sushi prices? A lineup out the door? This sushi compares to Costco fast takeout and not a sushi restaurant. So bad! Maybe we’re super spoiled in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island with Sushi Nori , John’s...More

If you like fusion Japanese food, you will enjoy the early bird special on most entrees. The panko crust Ahi Tuna roll is a must and the butterfish is soft and tasty. The duck breast is also done perfectly. Server Steve is very professional and...More

No. But they have the typical California rolls that most kids will eat. Their menu has a great selection of food that is suitable. Not just raw fish but other options you can feed your kids. And make sure you leave room for... More
