I'm not kidding. My new favorite Sushi restaurant of all time. The Ahi Tuna melts in your mouth. Talk about fresh fish!!! Great service and a lively atmosphere. A treasured find not to miss.

We have been eating here for years.....every time we visit Maui. Be sure to get the butterfish in a miso sauce...excellent. Always fresh sushi and the bartender we had last night was amazing!!!! She was multitasking like no one we have ever seen.

We enjoy the variety of sashimi and sushi rolls available at discount prices when they first open. Drinking hot sake while sitting at the bar is an entertaining experience.

This was one of our favorite restaurants in Maui. We tried a couple other sushi spots but none provided the level of service, quality and affordability Sansei had. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and attentive. I have a gluten intolerance and she provided me with...More
