Each Monday there is a half-price promotion on most menu items until 6 pm at Sansei's, so be sure to get in line well before their 5 pm opening. We got there just before 4:30 and the line was already long, but staff came down the line and took our party name and number of people (7), and assigned us... More

What a wonderful place for sushi, tempura, sushi rolls and steak/seafood entrees! For someone like me who isn't a true sushi purist, one of the great reasons to go to maui. There is also one in Honolulu, which is equally tasty.

After several recommendations we ventured to Sansei. My family eats a lot of sushi and my little kid has eaten sashimi since she was three. Service was okay, not terrible, not great. Appetizers came at the end of the dinner, but that happens. Where we were really disappointed was the sushi. It was fine, but not great. It was not... More

The food was good. I wouldn't say it was the best food but it was a nice meal. They have a good menu and everything we ordered was good. Waiter was very nice

Sansei has many locations throughout the Hawaiian Islands and all of them that we've been to have been excellent. The service is always friendly and efficient and the sushi is artistic and fresh. Make a reservation and enjoy!

We really enjoy our time at Sansei. Happy hour is popular & crowded. Go early n stand in line for the 5:30 opening or make a reservation. Calamari salad & miso yaki butterfish are my favorites. The steak & pork chop also good.

We obtained reservations because our three kids wanted sushi for dinner. While a bit pricey, it was not outrageous. We ordered 12-15 rolls for a family of five and they brought out one roll at a time for 90 minutes apologizing between each delivery for the lack of food. If you want a snack every 5-10 minutes and have an... More

The crab ramen was a hit with the foodies and the child. The teen and young adult preferred the sushi. We also tried the pinko crusted ahi sashimi toll, Kapalua butterfry roll, a special Hawaiian roll and spicy crab roll. The last 2 were excellent while the first 2 looked good and were different from other places but just ok.... More

Sansei catered the appetizers for the wedding we attended on the island and it was the only sushi restaurant recommended to us. We ordered several rolls, Panko Crusted Ahi Sashimi Sushi Roll, Sansei’s Shrimp Dynamite, Sansei’s Mango Crab Salad Roll, Kapalua “Butterfry” Roll and the “69” Roll. I generally don't eat Ahi or Unagi but I tried all of the... More
