The food here was very fresh and very good. We made a reservation for a Sunday night and had no wait. We ordered several dishes and weren't disappointed with anything. That said, we felt very rushed. The waitress would constantly come to the table "anything else??" - we hadn't finished the meal yet. For the quality of food alone, I... More

We waited for almost an hour - you either need to make reservations or be prepared to stand in line for about an hour. Call ahead and get the procedures but we got there around 4:15 and waited until they opened their doors around 5:15. Parking is not an issue. I personally thought the food was just ok but the...

We dined here twice during our four night stay and both dining experiences were outstanding. We preferred the second night when we sat at the sushi bar and had everything prepared by the master sushi chefs right in front of us. The fish is very fresh and the restaurant offers a lot of unique, delicious options. It is not very... More

Unique sushi and good service. I would recommend this restaurant. Make sure you make a reservation. This is the third time at this restaurant.

We ate here twice in 10 days and have eaten here several times over the years. This time in Kapalua. The food is superb, great preparation and friendly service. Seats are packed in tight, but that is because the food is so good. Will not disappoint!

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
