Great Sushi and more

Sushi was excellent. The place is crowded and hard to get reservations, but worth waiting. Before 6:00 pm most menu items are 20% off. It's a little noisy and tables are close. Service was cordial but not very attentive. Our food started coming before our cocktails, then we waited forever for our... read more

Eat great food at a discount by making your reservation as soon as they open. A special menu is offered and it is delicious.

My only complaint is that success has taken away some of what makes this place great. It is crowded and noisy and takes some time to get your food. The bar is still friendly and the food is still quite good. We actually got our sushi to go and went back to our ocean front, view room. That was perfect.

Make a reservation before you come if possible. We tried to get reservations for the following week after arrival and it was impossible. However, some people don't show up for their reservations, so get in line at 5PM and you can be seated at the bar right away or wait for someone to no show on their reservation (which seems... More

After visiting Sansei on our first trip to Maui, this time we came back, and then came back again! We couldn't resist coming here twice this trip and you won't either! Definitely busy so make a reservation. The service is really good and attentive. Lots of people have said that it seems like they are rushing you, but what it... More

The ambiance is nice, but the prices are extremely high and the food was average. I have definitely had better sushi for less.

Great Sushi among other things. Show up 20 minutes before they open or make a reservation. We sat at the bar-back which wasn't ideal but still turned out great.
