Fun night at Sansei

Met up with friends for a late dinner and karaoke. Sansei opens to 1 am on this particular night which is a rare find in Maui. The food was fresh and delicious. The karaoke was an added bonus that will keep us talking for years to come!

We have been to Sansei every time we have visited Maui in the past 15 years, dating back to the original location. While there are many more sushi and asian fusion options today, the food at Sansei has never disappointed. Much of the venue stays the same with some new offerings each season. Coming from California, we simply don't get... More

1/2 price menu from 5-6 pm only and must b in line by 5:45 to get seat. Great sushi at regular price but really a steal at happy hour. Have dynamite shrimp and apple tart for dessert for sure. Great service and did not get that "oh,you're here for the happy hour" attitude. Eyeing actually helped us with the large... More

My hubby is a sushi fanatic and we went there for him. He LOVED their sushi. The chef we had was impeccably attentive to our food and our needs. I liked the udon and chicken dish that I ordered as which made the visit all the more worth it. If you are into sushi go.

My family sat at the sushi bar one evening -- we were lucky enough to get a spot quickly as there is often a line waiting to eat. Frank was our sushi chef -- very friendly and an excellent sushi chef. Couldn't believe how quickly he could put together amazing dishes. He also provided some excellent recommendations and we really... More

On our first visit to Sansei a few years ago we made the mistake of assuming that its proximity to the Ritz Carlton indicated a more formal joint. Wrong. Sansei is a swirl of people, coming and going, waiting, eating and drinking. Service is friendly and familiar in a good way. Because the menu items may be new to some,... More

The manager at our hotel and also the valet guy recommended that we go to Sansei and we are so happy that we listened to them. It was fantastic. We had a party of 9, so we all ordered a variety of sushi. Here are our favorites: Appetizer: Shrimp dynamite and Crispy Fried Calamari Sushi: Crispy Butter fish tempura roll,... More

Based on reviews, my family had dinner at Sansei last night. We were fortunate to get a last minute reservation and although it was early - 5:30 pm, we got a 25% early bird discount. As per other reviews, sushi was a highlight, in particular the house specialty of panko crusted tuna and rainbow roll. I don't eat sushi so... More

Excellent fish with creative rolls. Easy walking distance from the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. It has a fun lively ambiance and a good change of pace from the normal Hawaiian fish house restaurant
