great food and service

probably our best meal - and we did it ala carte and feeding 6 of us - it was the cheapest nice dinner we had. The waiter suggested each order a sushi and then we did 2 for appetizer - it was a lot of food and variety. A little crowded , a little loud but worth it after all.

A very good but expensive selection of sushi. Traditional Japanese favs and new and novel creations! Super busy. Reservations a must! Very friendly staff and servers. Soon coming to Seattle we were told!

Fabulous fresh sushi, and an amazing waiter (from Wisconsin) - we told him our allergies/adventure level and he chose the most amazing dishes for us. If you're not a sushi expert, this is a great way to learn.

We live close by and enjoy the kamaaina discounts they offer. It's appreciated! My husband and son LOVE their sushi! I usually get a veggie roll since fish isn't my thing. The atmosphere is nothing special and waiting in the heat to get a seat is tough, but if the sushi is that good- it's worth it. We sat at... More

We always make reservations for Sansei when we visit Maui. Terrific sushi experience. They tend to get very nice cuts of fish. I definitely fill myself every time and I recommend most of the menu. My favorites are the Panko Crusted Ahi Sashimi, I also love the 69 Roll. All their nigiri is fantastic.

My wife and I enjoy eating local cuisine when we travel. On this trip to Maui we decided to hop over to Sansei for some fresh fare. We sat at the sushi bar and enjoyed a half dozen or so rolls recommended to us by our sushi chef Frankie. Not one was a dud. Overall, the value was fair, the... More

Being from Vancouver we have eaten at an incredible amount of sushi restaurants. Every year we come to Maui we have to visit Sansei in Kapalua. Their specialty rolls are so flavourful and beautifully prepared it is a full on delight to eat here. This place has some of the best sushi anywhere! Since the first visit 6 years ago... More

We ate at the original location 10 years ago and were pleased to see Sansei had continued to grow in popularity. We attempted walking up for the 25% off happy hour, and were first in line arriving at 4:30 - I would suggest 4:45 at the latest to have a good shot at a table, as a decent line formed... More

If you like Sushi this is the place to go. The atmosphere is very casual and family oriented but the food is great as is the attentive service. The place always seems to be packed so you know they are doing something right. We found the sushi to be creative and very fresh.

Sansei is a pretty good Japanese restaurant. The teriyaki beef, ramen, prawn roll, and ice cream dessert are the best! Long wait though, just book a table ahead of time.
