The sushi here was amazing. Some of the best I've ever had and I am a very picky sushi eater. The atmosphere was upscale Japanese yet still casual if that makes sense. Service was excellent. The quality of the sushi was truly outstanding. Highly recommend making reservations. Considering the quality of the food and the atmosphere and especially considering the... More

Awesome Food and great service; it's always a 10. Recommend having reservations, but not always necessary.

I don't write reviews. But I sure look at them. So for me to say anything about this place speaks volumes. By far the best sushi I've ever had! Butter fish?! Insane! Loved it!

Again, we had a great dinner at Sansei in Kapalua. The food is great, taste is always awesome and the various kinds of Sushi or Sashimi are the best and authentic japanese. Do not forget to make a reservation the day before!

Sansei is a very busy restaurant in Kapalua. You can go early and wait for open spots but I would recommend reservations. The physical layout of Sanaei is a bit odd and we assumed that it was converted from another format. Tables were close in our area and it was a bit noisy. They have a very nice and large... More

This is all about the food - and sushi is the star. Great selection - always reliable. Very popular - make a reservation or expect to wait as there is often a wait list for dinner on any night. Ambience nothing special - tucked as it is on Ritz Carlton grounds - next to the Honoloa General store. But the... More

After all the good reviews about this restaurant, I was expecting to have a great meal and a great time. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. On a single positive note, the fish was fresh and tasty. On the other side of the coin, we found the restaurant decor to be very tired and worn out. We found the service "average"... More

I eat a fair amount of sushi in the Pacific NW. I eat a lot of same day sushi (tuna and salmon), as I own/operate a tuna boat and we eat a lot of sushi and poke from fish straight from our boat. I had high hopes for this place based on the hype. We had a few, good, drinks... More

Sansei Sushi opens at 5:30 but as we pulled into the parking lot at around 5:20, there was already a line forming. From 5:30 to 6:00 most of the menu is discounted about 25% so if you can, arrive early and get your order in. We had a variety of items, but the Shrimp Dynamite and the Crab Ramen were... More
