Great food

A little on the pricey side but worth it. Wait time was crazy long I suggest making reservations. The place is very small inside. There is also no bathroom facility inside due to its size but are located outside behind restraunt.

We've been to Maui twice, and Sansei four times! If you like sushi, you gotta eat here. Everything is fresh, with some nice twists on conventional. Shrimp dynamite, ahi carpaccio, miso butterfish...the list goes on. Definitely recommended.

We sat at the bar and the bartender took very good care of us, along with giving selections on what to choose from. Great selection of sushi with tight rolls. Try to make a reservation if possible

Very good fresh sushi! The peppercorn ny strip was cooked and presented to perfection! Highly recommended. The short wait for a table is worth every minute of it! Would love to come back again!!😎

I have eaten here on 6 occasions in the past several years. and i can tell you it is good, but not great like it use to be. I was here 2 times on this trip thinking i just missed something.
