“sushi and tempura heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

What a wonderful place for sushi, tempura, sushi rolls and steak/seafood entrees! For someone like me who isn't a true sushi purist, one of the great reasons to go to maui. There is also one in Honolulu, which is equally tasty.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

After several recommendations we ventured to Sansei. My family eats a lot of sushi and my little kid has eaten sashimi since she was three. Service was okay, not terrible, not great. Appetizers came at the end of the dinner, but that happens. Where we were really disappointed was the sushi. It was fine, but not great. It was not innovative and presentation was lacking. Wilted salad greens under warm sushi? Not appetizing. Overpriced and not worth a trip.

“Good food, expensive but not as expensive as most places.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

The food was good. I wouldn't say it was the best food but it was a nice meal. They have a good menu and everything we ordered was good. Waiter was very nice

“Sushi in Kihei . . . why yes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Sansei has many locations throughout the Hawaiian Islands and all of them that we've been to have been excellent. The service is always friendly and efficient and the sushi is artistic and fresh. Make a reservation and enjoy!

“Great happy hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We really enjoy our time at Sansei. Happy hour is popular & crowded. Go early n stand in line for the 5:30 opening or make a reservation. Calamari salad & miso yaki butterfish are my favorites. The steak & pork chop also good.
