We went to Sansei for dinner to get away from the resort and were very pleased that we did. We should have made reservations but the staff was very accommodating. The small bar seats about 10-12 and turned out for us to be the perfect waiting spot as it gave us an opportunity to talk with some of the locals... More

My husband and I ate an Sansei on our last night in Maui and were disappointed we didn't find it sooner. We were able to get a reservation, which we highly recommend - it gets very busy. It's very hear to the Kapalua Resort and Ritz in Maui (you can walk from there), so it's a great spot if you're... More

This place has the best sushi I've ever had. My wife and I tried 3 different rolls and they were all very fresh and flavorful. I will definitely return. A must is you are a sushi lover. They also offer 25% off from 5:15 (when doors open) till 6 pm. We got there at 5 and there was already a... More

Very average food and service. There is much better food on the island. If you are going for sushi, then head to Koiso instead. Its the real deal.

We come every year. We arrive usually fresh from the mainland (and book early) for the pre 6pm, early bird special: 25% off most food items. The place is packed by then. Whether you enjoy fresh Japanese style fish, sashimi or sushi or more traditional items (grilled pork chops), the food and service here is fabulous. I'm a snob connoisseur... More

This is always a favorite stop for us when on the Island of Maui. It's an adventure getting there early to get a spot in line. We usually take turns standing in line while the family explores. If you line up early - you get a discount - which enables you to try more of their specials. It's a win/win.... More

On the recommendation of a friend, we went to Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar in Kapalua. The restaurant is located in a very expensive neighborhood, in the middle of a golf course. Unbeknown to us, they have a 25% off food early bird special every day. It last from 5:30 to 6 PM. We got there at 5:40 and... More

Dined with the family twice on our recent trip to Maui. Always busy so plan ahead but well worth it. Sushi dishes are tops as are the salads, tempura, and cooked dishes. Kids will easily find many things the will like and kitchen is accommodating for any food allergies. Can't wait to go back.

This place is amazing. Food is unique and delicious but you best make a reservation well in advance. The prices are great value for fresh and unique dishes of Japanese Hawaiian fusion cuisine.
