“Grate food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

The food here is very good. Must try Calamari and the shrimp dyminte. We live on Maui and we go to sansei on a monthly base.

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

One of the surf instructors had told us to visit Sansei! This is by far one of the best sushi places we had ever been to! Every single dish our waiter (sonny) suggested was incredible. The butterfish was our favorite. We will be back for sure!

“Fresh and Unique Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

We always go to this restaurant at least once during our stays on Maui. Reservations are sometimes difficult to get and even with a reservation, there is still a wait. The food is delicious. Tight restaurant seating-wise but comfortable. Our sons are teenagers but not sure how easy or comfortable it would be with young children. On the loud side which is not an issue for us. I especially like the unique combinations of rolls as well as the fish choice.
Over-all a favorite.

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We have been going to Sansei for years. This was probably the last time. The food was bland and tasteless. The setting and service were excellent, but the food disappointed

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We heard great things about this place but were disappointed. Wait staff is unfriendly, sure they're busy but were unnecessarily rude while we waited for our table to be ready. Even with a reservation we still had a lengthy wait which wouldn't be so bad if they had a waiting area rather than just people standing around. Food was mediocre at best, definitely not coming back.
