Sansei in Kapalua used to be one of our favorites. This was our first time trying the Kihei location. The Kihei location is not as nice as the Kapalua location but the food is just as good as we remember. The service was good too -- we complained that our octopus sunomono only had three pieces of octopus and they... More

My husband and I were really disappointed by the average sushi at Sansei. More so because of reviews were read about the restaurant and because the sushi came with such exorbitant prices. We can find better quality sushi at more reasonable prices here in Calgary, than we had in Maui. :(

I have visited several Sansei locations in Hawaii, but usually go to the one on Oahu. While on a trip to Maui we decided to have dinner at the Kihei location, and it did not disappoint. We got a seat very quickly even though the restaurant was fairly busy. We had all of our favorites, the Kenny G, the mango... More

We are there a few nights ago and had a great meal. The Ahi Tuni Carpachio I a fruit vinaigrette was excellent. The ShatKi mishrooms were also very good. The sushi was fresh- as you would expect. I am sure there are many great dishes at Sensai.

Our family has visited various Sansei locations in Hawaii 6 times. The one in Kihei terribly disappointing and didn't live up to its name. After waiting for 40 min to be seated, we were told any food from sushi bar would be another 45 min wait. So we ordered a mixture of food from kitchen and sushi bar. Our kids... More

Great sushi. Freshest I've ever had. Was even more of a bonus that between 5:30 and 6:00 most of the menu was 25% off. Makes an awesome place even better for a deal.

Delicious food! Beautiful presentation, great service! As a former restaurant manager I found no fault with Sansei Restaurant in Kihei? It would be difficult to find anything to criticize here...they do a 1st class job. Menu has some great options...I, for one, don't care too much for seafood..though my husband loves it! I opted for the pork chops...he for the... More

We spent some time researching and quizzing friends before our Maui trip in order to build a great foodie itinerary and Sansei came universally recommended as a must-eat experience. We were not disappointed! Thankfully we had reservations - when we arrived it was jam packed with huge crowds awaiting a table. Our family of four was sat about 10 minutes... More

We came in late from the beach and called for reservations. They said come but we would have to wait an hour probably. My birthday so we decided to make it a night. Got there and received a pager and told may be an hour and a half. Finally got a seat at the bar and were told we had... More
