Fun atmosphere on a Friday night. After 10pm karaoke and 50% off drinks and food. Sushi was good, not amazing. Lots of variety to choose from though. 21+

Ate at the sushi bar. Had a great meal. Efficient friendly staff, big menu. Had them suggest and make a couple items for my lunch the next day once I was done.

I had never eaten Sushi before when we decided to go eat at Sansei. My m9m decided we should have a little bit of everything so I could get the full experience. I have to say that I don't think I will ever be able...More

If you don't have a reservation, you need to arrive at 5:30 PM as soon as the restaurant opens. There is often a line-up waiting at the door for the restaurant to open. There is an advantage to eating early because many items on the...More

We went early (4 ish), took some chairs and played "heads UP" until 5pm when they open the doors. The wait staff was super friendly and made sure that he explained everything that was available...and their suggested selections. He told us to keep a menu...More

the Sensei in Kapalua is much better, the fried sweet potatoes were the best thing in Kihei restaurant, the rest of the meal was disappointing It's worth driving to Kapalua if you want good sushi.

Like many others, we waited in line for the 1/2 price meal. We went for the shorter bar seating line and it was a great call. We got direct access to our server and much better advice on both drinks and the food. My picky...More

Super crowded. Delicious food. Sushi and steak if preferred. Basic serving plates. Not the best for sushi presentations. Chef will make anything you would like in a roll or otherwise. Reservations a must. Nearby hotels will take you there with their house cars. Fabulous tempura...More

Second review over the years for this great restaurant and sushi bar. Their kitchen dishes are very good (we always share a calamari salad) and their sashimi and sushi is excellent. Service is fast and attentive. You won't be disappointed.

No. But they have the typical California rolls that most kids will eat. Their menu has a great selection of food that is suitable. Not just raw fish but other options you can feed your kids. And make sure you leave room for... More
What days of the week or times of day do they offer a discount? I have read that you get 25% off when dining between 5:30pm and 6:00pm but also read 50% off on Sundays and Mondays. Also, does this discount apply to all menu items or only the sushi?
