Food and service were great

We agree with recent posters. The food was great--best shrimp tempura roll I have ever had. It is less crowded if you go early, and it helps to make a reservation, but the lines do move quickly. Service was great and the variety of sushi and other offerings is outstanding.

We love sushi and always have trouble finding a place that is as good as the one we go to at home. This place was a good find. Lots of rolls to choose from and they will even customize ones for you. We ate here twice during our two week visit. They pack you in like sardines though.

If you love sushi this is a must on your trip to Maui. The atmosphere is awesome, service fantastic and food delicious. Everything we visit Wailea we go to Sansei for dinner. Amazing Sushi!

Had several sushi rolls. Ask wait person about a roll we had eaten in the restaurant last year but was no longer on the menu. The chef was happy to prepare it for us! It was just as good as we remembered. Good food, good service.

Broad menu, choose carefully or you will duplicate with similar meals. Drinks were good. Service was good and prompt. We'd go back.

We always get whatever's fresh and have never been disappointed. Dishes came quickly, in fact I don't think we were even at our table for an hour. Beer selection was decent, Wine interesting.

My friends and I heard from a local that this was the place to go, but also that it fills up quick so try and get a reservation. We had no problem securing a table in advance.
