Great time, great food

At Sensei's the best thing to do is try parts of the entire menu and share with friends and family. There's always some things on the menu or special sheet that are hidden gems. We recently had a meal like that where we tried sushi rolls, entries and a couple other things, and we were not... read more

We went to Merrimans outdoor bar for sunset and small bites and then came to sansei. It's my favorite. The rolls are super delicious and so fresh!! The best sushi I have had in the world. They have great happy hour specials if you arrive before 6 and after 10!! But anytime. Go go.

My husband and I ate here twice in August 2014. Best sushi ever. So fresh. We had three different rolls and all were delicious. Get to the restaurant early (5:30-6) for a discount!

Some of the best sushi I have ever had! We go here multiple times on our trips. It is 5 star food at very fair prices. The ahi carpaccio is amazing along with the ahi sashimi. I haven't had anything here I haven't liked. The service is good but it is so popular you should make a reservation. The napili... More

I liked Sansei because I am not a sushi lover, and they had a lot of other choices on their menu. I particularly liked the teriyaki beef. I would recommend getting a reservation.

This is a fun, vibrant, innovative sushi restaurant. The menu is extensive with endless options and a long list of nightly specials. The specials are often inspired by the best available fresh fish, so try a couple. The rolls are all excellent and the sashimi can't be beat. The apple tart desert is great. Extensive wine, beer and sake list.... More

We go here every time we come, whether it be kapalua side or kihei side and they never disappoint. The sushi iis the best on the island and the rolls are inventive and different. Their signature roll is a MUST have. This time we sat at the sushi bar and really enjoyed it. The place is busy and loud, but... More

I expected to be wowed by this place, since locals and tourists alike rave about it and line up for their reduced-price such I hours. I was not impressed at all. In fact, with the exception of one dish I found the food average, and the atmosphere extremely uncomfortable. We arrived on a Sunday night with no reservation, and were... More

Really, really, really great. Panko crusted ahi roll was my favorite. Calamari was excellent. My husband enjoyed the beef terriyaki immensely. Great service, prices are quite fair, particularly at happy hour. Will return!
