Great choice for sushi!

Attentive, accommodating service! Nothing particularly notable about the views/location. Very lively, fun, laid-back atmosphere in the dining room.

Attentive, accommodating service! Nothing particularly notable about the views/location. Very lively, fun, laid-back atmosphere in the dining room. Sushi was fantastic, although I personally would have preferred a bit more spicy kick on the some of the spicier rolls, and a bit more crunchy texture on some. All in all, a great spot to pick when you're having a sushi... More

Arrived early (we thought) for the "Early Bird" special on a week night (Monday). Unbelievably there was a line out the door, to the sidewalk, and down the sidewalk. This was maybe 20 minutes before open time. Decided to be patient and see what happened. Ultimately, we were amongst the last of the first seating to make it in, seated... More

This is a very good sushi place in Kapalua. Very near (walking distance) to the Ritz Carlton. It's also extraordinarily popular and difficult to get reservations. Our concierge advised us to show up and wait in line at the door at 4:45. At 5:15 they open and set those with reservations first, followed by those 'waiting' in the 'no reservations... More

Traditional Japanese style, Sushi, Sashimi, Roll are great, cooked by Japanese Chef. We went there before 6pm and enjoy 25% discount for early bird. Free parking is around and we walked around after the dinner. It's great view and there is a golf course nearby.

My 2nd try at getting this review right. Incredible sushi/sashimi/tempura menu. Llana and I had the butterfish roll, boom boom roll, 3 or 4 crunchy this and that rolls and my favorite the Spider roll. Delicious! Popular place requires reservations a couple days in advance.

Our Time at Sansie was terrific! The sushi was super fresh and the service was great. Our chef was Frankie, not only was he a great chef but he was super out going and friendly. We made reservations but we arrived early and we were seated quickly.

My wife and I live and work on the west side of Maui and we eat at Sansei's about 4 times a month. It is consistently GREAT food and the staff are always super nice and show the Aloha experience. We typically sit at the bar with Nicole and Shane. They keep us feeling like family and are always providing... More

Sansei Waikoloa not like the others. Hours listed as 5:30 but actually opens at 5:00. We arrived at 5:30 and there was one seat left at regular bar. We took the seat and planned on the 30 minute wait. When we received our dinks we were to.d the seat was actually spoken for so we had to stand. We decided... More

We ate here on our last night on Hawaii, and it was the perfect finale to a wonderful vacation. We went early -- 5:30-ish -- and had no problem getting a seat at the sushi bar. We had a hard time making a decision; everything sounded so interesting. Can't remember now exactly what we chose, but I think you could... More

Sit at the sushi bar and go nuts experimenting! They don't take reservations for the sushi bar, so just show up and plan on having a drink at the bar-bar until a seat(s) opens. Very fresh and well prepared sushi!
