Much more casual restaurant than I expected. Nevertheless the sushi was very good and I would recommend eating here. But, there are better sushi restaurants on the mainland.

If you're lucky enough to enjoy this beautiful island don't miss this gem! The reverse happy hour and karaoke made this place unforgettable. Trust me, you'll like it here.

We (me and my wife) are not generally Sushi fans. This place could turn us around. We shared the Panko-crusted Seared Ahi Sashimi. Oh MY God! So fresh and delicious. One of our friends had this as their entree. Since I'm not a Sushi pro, I tried the Spider Roll. Great choice! Tempura fried soft shell crab with rice and... More

So, we were here twice on our recent trip. There are very few places, only two, in fact that we've ever visited twice in two weeks while on the islands. Even without a view of the Pacific, Sansei has it all. Ambiance, service and food that all come with a very reasonable cost, especially considering it's Maui. We so pigged... More

A great option if you are staying at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua. A short walk up the hill from the hotel. The sushi was delicious and very fresh!

This is our second visit. Great sushi and other dishes. Full bar with nice wines. Service was terrific. We had Ramen noodles with crab and truffle. WOW! Also sliced filet and onion rings, which were light. It is worth the drive while you are on Maui.

We loved the sushi at Sansei. We tried Sweet Potatoe Tempura, Super Red roll, Spicy tuna, and one other. All were top on our Sushi list.

I see this place has a lot of good reviews so maybe I was just there on a bad day, but they were out of two of the rolls I ordered (which confused me because the other rolls we got had the same fish) so I can only assume they don't make every roll fresh? For the cost of the... More

On or second trip to Maui, we had to plan to come back to Sansei, and they definitely did not disappoint. All of the food is delicious and we really loved the miso butterfish, Ahi carpaccio, and their Friday specialty roll. The service was great as well. We are going back before we head home! A MUST DO when in... More
