Food was very good. Sushi is one of our favorite dinners. We went for our anniversary. We were very happy with the quality, taste and helpful service. Like I said, it was a bit pricey, but that's parr for all things in Maui. We would go back for another special occasion.

Got a recommendation from a local that this was a great place for sushi, it is plus they have so much more. They have tons of rolls and all of them we tried we very good, especially the dragon roll and yellow submarine. The sushi itself was just OK. I've had better but don't get me wrong, it's good and...

This is an extremely popular restaurant especially on Mondays as they have half price Sushi from 5 to 6. There is always a lineup before 5 when they open so get there early. Its all good and the servers give excellent recommendations if Sushi is new to you. We visited the restaurant twice and each time the food was excellent.

Going to this restaurant definitely was good choice. I am really glad the front desk of the hotel I stayed at recommended it to me and my partner. The service was good and the food came out quickly and the flavors blended well together. I would definitely stop by this restaurant again on my next visit.

Sashimi was great but some of our other choices were weird. Octopus sashimi was toughest ever. Ordered one of their specialy rolls, should've stuck to one we know. Good service and not terribly pricey but we're not in a big hurry to go back.

We wanted to go out and really have a fun night so we decided to get a cab..good call. Sansei has Karaoke starting at 10pm. The bar is not really set up... More

Sansei on Maui is so good! My husband and I shared several menu items including the Dungeness Crab Ramen with Asian Truffle Broth.....and I could not get enough of this ramen! It happens to be award winning and from the taste of the broth I know why. My only recommendation is to make a reservation.

People bring beach chairs to line up for an hour before happy hour opening. That's how good this place is. Contender for best Sushi in the US. Not a place to linger except at the bar. There is a fair chance you'll get a seat at the bar to eat at before you get a table. We're regulars and don't... More

The title says it all. As soon as we got there we got seated at the same table as another couple which was very awkward and unexpected. A lot of the tables were set up like this for couples. Couples were also being sat at at the bar. It would probably be best to go here with a larger group.... More

In a shopping center near the Foodland shopping centering Kihie this is the best sushi on the Island. Always busy and packed with locals. Mahola
