An all around fabulous meal. We sat at the sushi bar because those were the only seats available. A bit cramped, but worth it. Fresh, delicious fish with some really original and fun rolls. Considering how expensive everything on Maui is, the price was quite reasonable.

Very casual dining, outstanding food and good value. Extensive menu of sashimi, rolls and fresh fish. Had dinner there last night, LOVED IT. Next door to the Ritz-Carlton, five minute walk.

Loved this place the first time we went, that we went back again two nights later. Great Sushi and great service, but also pretty expensive. Worth the price.

Sansei has a very large menu which is surprising, but the quality of the food (particularly the freshness of the sashimi) was excellent. We knew that this place was highly recommended, and it is definitely a dinner restaurant that I would return to again. We ordered many small plates, the servings are not huge, and we found that this was... More

The menu is extensive, difficult to make a choice if ur new to sushi! We were sat at the sushi bar, asked the chef for advise and he pointed us to the highlighted options. Not a great help! We ordered 2 alcoholic drinks. We received our water, this was topped up but they failed to bring our drinks out. The... More

I definitely wanted to go out for sushi when in Maui so I did some research before we left and this place had such great reviews. Definitely make reservations as it does get crowded. I went with my family of 5 and was lucky enough to be seated right away on the little counter area by the bar. The fish... More

Very good sushi. We went on a Monday which is 25% off most of the food and 50% if you have a Hawaiian ID until 6pm. It opens at 5:15pm but the line starts as early as 4:30pm. It is a small restaurant and fills up immediately because everyone is trying to get their order in for the discount before... More

This seafood restaurant has the best sushi I have ever had. It was recommended by a local, and boy am I happy I have found this place. Because their food is superb, their prices reflect this fact--on the steep side. Fortunately, they offer a couple of deals that my husband and I take advantage of. On Thursday and Friday nights,...

Sansei is a very lively and busy place. Make a reservation or prepare to wait in line. They have many specials on the menu. Our favorites are shrimp dynamite, ahi carpaccio, butter fish and the red dragon roll. You get 25% off till 6 pm on non special items. They have karaoke on Thursday nights at 10 pm. We have... More

Good quality fish. The rolls everyone raved about on Yelp were just ok. We only got nigiri on our second visit and were happier. Both visits we waited at the walk-in line before 5pm and got seated. If Sansei were at home in Seattle and not as crazy packed, I'd go once a month. In Maui and right next to... More
