Good Dinner

We enjoyed this restaurant. We ordered the following: Asian Shrimp Cake - love the sauce on this Mango crab salad hand roll Mixed vegetable tempura Plus my husband ordered the daily fish special. Everything was good but don't miss the early bird special. Quite a savings before 5:30.

We had no reservations, but waited just 20 minutes as a couples walk-in. We had the specials... Beef Won-ton and grilled Brussel sprouts... best we ever had. We had loads of sashimi: kampachi, etc... all perfect. The butterfish tempura sushi was a similar delight. A half-bottle of sake washed the meal down and the other half followed us home in... More

This place was dynamite in all regards. We sat at the Sushi Bar and I can't say enough good things about the guys working the line. They were masters at their craft and everything they gave us was mouthwateringly good. I'm drooling just writing this and remembering. My guy isn't much of a sushi eater and even he was enjoying...

This restaurant was recommended to me to try and I gave it a go the night before i flew out of Maui. I was sitting at the sushi bar and the place had an ok vibe. Honestly I was disappointed by the food I had there, too salty and their signature mango salad roll was not very tasty or flavorsome.... More

Great food and 1/2 price at late night happy hour makes it worth the wait.Not only do you get the awesome sushi but the karaoke is great entertainment,with a great mix of locals and visitors getting up there to belt out their favorite tunes.

Food in Maui is expensive and Sansei is no exception. We had 3 rolls and a large beer and our total with tip was 60 bucks. It was good but certainly not exceptional. Service was really good, very attentive and we were seated immediately at around 7 p.m. on a Thursday night.

Maybe I am just blessed with awesome sushi back home in Vancouver.. But this sushi was average, and for the price, not really worth it in my opinion. And the $3.00 miss soup was too salty. Overall.. The dishes that we ordered were just 'okay'. A bit disappointed as I had high hopes after reading the Good reviews.

Great sushi and excellent pricing, especially during happy hour. The only downside during these times are the long lines to get in and the chaotic atmosphere, but it's to be expected when you are getting this quality of food for the price. One of my favorite Maui sushi places.

Wow! I don't think I will ever be able to eat sushi in New York again! This was the freshest, tastiest, and best overall sushi I have ever eaten. The portions are HUGE so we ended up taking a lot to go. Staff was friendly and very accommodating! Highly recommend!

Super nice to be able to book reservations in opentable.com. We had two non sushi lovers and two sushi lovers in our group - both were satisfied. The sushi was rather rich and so it was hard to actually taste the fish, but all in all I think it was good. The beef teriyaki appetizer and panko breaded veggies were... More
