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

Very high quality sushi. The service was good, We were there on Saturday night at 10pm and it filled up by 10:30pm. We each had 2 rolls and everything was perfect.

We were in kihei for a week and this restaurant was right down the road from our rental house! Food was delicious! Several options to choose from, not just seafood!

We were told to make sure we got there very early for their Sunday Happy hour and we did stand in line of about 60 people at 4:15 thinking the wait would be worth it. From 5-6, the early bird special its 50% off all food. We get in at 5:15 and immediately place our order. We ordered a sushi... More

We love sushi and we go out for sushi at home every week. We thought the Panko Crusted Ahi roll was excellent. We also got the Dynamite Shrimp because everybody says to order this but neither of us understood why after we ate it - it is simply fried shrimp with a mild sauce on it - we were expecting... More

My wife and I went twice during our 8 day trip to Maui. Great sushi and value (especially during happy hour). Fun environment during karaoke nights. 50% off sushi and apps during happy hour, Thursday to Saturday 10pm-1am. Recommend you go a bit earlier as it gets busy or make reservation. They also have an earlier happy hour, 25% off... More

Going to Sansei is an experience to enjoy a chiefs take on traditional sushi. The Service was excellent and the food was delicious. Our grandson, a sushi lover, made sure his first night in Maui was directly to Sansei for dinner, no matter what! No disappointment for us all, great night!

The sushi was top notch. Service was friendly. Even though it is in a strip mall and the ambiance is nothing to write home about, the food is GREAT!

We travelled as a couple with two adult kids (age 20 and 22). They are not discerning sushi eaters and felt it was very good. We felt it was average. The unagi roll and tataki were bland at best. Certainly not bad, but not flavourful or very interesting. One roll (which is baked) was amazing though! We were told the... More

We had dinner here recently and quite enjoyed it. The service was terrific - fast, and very friendly. The food was delicious. Between the three of us we had a sushi roll (can't remember which one), tempura, the crab ramen (really delish) and ahi salad. All was very fresh, lots to eat and reasonable prices.
