Very good

Excellent Sushi , would recommend the Sansei special roll and the panko shrimp the butter fish is killer too but a small portion.If you go on Sunday or Monday it is 50% off which makes it especially good.

On our arrival, we asked our concierge where to go for sushi. Sansei was the first place suggested. We were not disappointed! Food was good. Service was exceptional. We took advantage of happy hour and the server made sure we got a "last call" to get our order in time to save. We tipped on full price to reward our... More

I'm not a raw seafood lover, but Sansei has the best shrimp and veggie tempura, shrimp tempura rolls, crab mango rolls and California rolls to keep this girl happy.

My wife and I eat sushi once a week on the mainland so I was excited to see what would be available on the island with all the fresh fish available. After looking over the menu for quite a while I realized it was going to cost a small fortune to have my usual spread I ordered a few small... More

This restaurant is located less than 10 minutes walk from our condo. When we arrived at 730 PM we were told there would be a 20 minute wait so we walked across the mall to Foodland. We had picked up a few items when we were called to say a table was ready. Once we settled at our table we... More

By recommendation, we tried this restaurant. We got in line at 4:30 for the early bird half price meals which are from 5:00 to 6:00. So we had a great deal on some of the best Asian food I've ever had. The waitstaff was highly efficient. I had the ramen, which was to die for! Also loved the Dynamite Shrimp... More

Dined at Sansei last Tuesday based on a recommendation from another hotel guest, plus have heard many others rave about the sushi but I take it they meant another location and not this one. We didn't have a reservation but after a 30 minute wait we were seated. Couldn't figure out why we had to wait considering there were empty... More

Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. Some food choices were confusing in description. I thought I was ordering one thing and got totally another. It was good, but get better sushi where I live in Georgia. It was certainly not all that it was advertised to be. Probably my least favorite dinner while in Maui.

A lot of red flags for this place -Asian Fusion -expensive in a tourist town -no locals We eat a lot of sushi, and came here to try it as a splurge on our last night in Kihei. Very pleasantly surprised- all of the sushi was excellent. Prices comparable to a 5 star place like Shiros in Seattle. Sushi maybe... More
