Worth the wait!

We didnt have a reservation so we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. That didnt matter as there was a wine bar next door where we sat and had a couple of cocktails. The service at Sansei was great. We were seated at the sushi bar and ordered directly through the chef. The food was AMAZING... read more

We had reservations for 5:30 PM but we got there at 5:15 PM to seat immediately and order immediately. The 25% ends at 6 PM. The rolls are excellent, I was disappointed in the Nigiri.

Wow~ talk about the hot spot on Maui!!! This...is a spot to make reservations as it is so popular! Dynamite Shrimp* Crab cakes* hate to get started because I want to be there...not doing a review!! It's a bit of a drive up the west Maui coast..about 10 minutes from Kaanapali...and so worth it! Tourists & "local" alike all flock... More

My husband and I love sushi, and they have some of the best and most inventive rolls. It is so incredibly fresh. Be sure to make a reservation as it is busy. I would highly recommend going if you love sushi!

I went here for dinner. There was 5 in our party, we did not have a reservation it was early evening, I would highly recommend a reservation. The place is not very large and the restrooms are not in the restaurant. You have to leave out and go around the side of the place for the restrooms. I had the... More

Wow, the flavors here are amazing. Their Panko appetizer and calamari salad are to die for. Our waitress Lilah had a great sense of humor and treated us very well. I advise going early because it fills up quick!

Sansei was a really good meal of sushi. I've heard friends and other reviews call it "the freshest fish they've ever eaten" but considering that most of the menu is flown in like every other good sushi restaurant I don't know if I agree. That said, we enjoyed a nice meal here and enjoyed the 25% off discounts before 6:00.... More

After starting my trip at Mama's Fish House, where I insist on every trip that we stop (amazing fresh ahi sashimi), I was introduced to Sansei later in the week. While it is in a small strip near Kapalua, it was a pleasant surprise. Based on a random recommendation, I am glad we took the chance. Small, intimate and amazing... More

We have eaten at sansei about five times and always enjoy it. Their sushi is always inventive and great quality and their fois gras sushi is one of the best things my wife and I who often have quite contrasting opinions have ever eaten. Always happy I went

Excellent fish and sushi. I had mahi-mahi sushi for the first time, and it was great. There was something for everyone, and the price was very reasonable.
