Eat here!!!

We eat here three times every vacation. They are always busy, so reservations are a must. Jamie at the check-in podium is THE BEST!!! Don't know how she does it but she manages to keep it all running smoothly.

The sushi is indeed creative and the tuna sashimi was one of the best we've ever had. But we felt rushed and the whole restaurant shakes when cars drive by. Overall, we were glad we took our shuttle driver's recommendation to try it out.

So many local takes on fresh great sushi. Waiter was excellent and gave great suggestions. We were there with 3 other couples, the restaurant was packed but we never felt rushed.

We were seated right away, the food came quickly, the service was very good and the food was well prepared. Every category by itself deserving of a rating of 4. Yet when we went home almost exactly an hour after we came in, we both felt that something had been missing. The ambiance of the place is a bit sterile... More

I would give this place 3.5 stars if they allowed. Setting was nothing special located in the Kapalua Village Center. Food and price were better than average by Maui standards but overall nothing special. They offer half price sushi and drinks for happy hour which we did not go for but would make it worth the visit. If you are... More

Living in Lahaina we make use of the early bird special (Sun, Mon) almost every single week. We have enjoyed top quality food and service for decades. The local (!!) ama ebi (raw shrimp) is the only shrimp I will ever eat. (No farming, no chemicals). Any of the sushi/sashimi items is delicious and always comes in top grade. We... More

We have been Sansei fans for 20 years. Every winter when we visit Maui, we dine there the first night and many subsequent nights. They never disappoint us. Nightly specials, new menu items, regular menu items- it's all good. No not good- excellent. The kitchen staff and the sushi masters are amazingly talented. If you haven't tried Sansei you are...

We came for early bird discount and the sushi was outstanding, my daughter and son in law had this and it was great. Mark was sushi chef and was a great help making special for my pregnant daughter. Had the desert apple tart which was one of best desserts I ever had! Don't miss having a meal here.

Sansei is our go to restaurant when we vacation in Kapalua. Our experience has been excellent each visit and we have yet to order a menu item that disappoints. We like to sit at the bar to start the evening with a superbly made cocktail and order shared plates. Service either at the bar or at tables is friendly and... More
