The menus are vibrant with choices, oldies, goodies, and new flavors. the place and ambience have stayed consistent. We of course ordered the must have mango crab roll and each time are reminded of what a natural, healthy fresh taste it... More

Surprised it wasn't crowded last night. If you order sushi by 6 pm, you get 25 percent off. The service was good as usual while the food was tasty. Recommend miso butterfly fish and uni sushi.

The food at Sansei is exceptional! The mango crab wrap is great for sharing with a friend. Dessert can be the macadamia nut wrapped ice cream! My husband isn't a dessert person but orders this each time we eat at Sansei.

Sushi came after the meal was finished. I had steak that wasn't that tender. Over fingerling potatoes...which was about 2 finger size potatoes cut in 1/2. Said had grape tomatoe salad with it and that was 2 grape tomatoes also cut in 1/2. But was $29.

Recommended by hotel staff. Food is okay. Nothing really outstanding. Offer modern Asian/Japanese fare. It's a busy place. Service is okay. Price is reasonable.

So....I think it's Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night a line starts to form about 9:30 at the park bench so if you've been... More

This is a VERY popular restaurant in Kihei, and for good reason. The sushi was quite excellent and the service was unhurried and personal for such a busy place. Our family of 4 was seated directly at the sushi bar, which probably wouldn't have been our first choice but it was a lucky break. Service at the bar was awesome,... More

The fish is fresh. Wasn't impressed by their signature rolls. Stick with the fresh sashimi, Panko crusted ahi roll, local vegetables in black bean chili butter, and fresh salads.
