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

So delish and yum! Seafood and sushi is the best - flavors and preparation are amazing - fantastic sauces! What we eat and LOVE - shrimp cake, shrimp dynamite, teriyaki beef, panko crusted ahi roll

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

Let me get started by saying this was a very nice place. The drinks we had there were awesome. The food tasted and looked good. The trouble came in that two members of our party ate uncooked sushi here, and got sick with diarrhea. The only thing we can blame was the sushi, since the rest of our party ate... More

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.
