Was in Kihei 6 nights and ate here 3 of them always at the sushi bar so I can't speak for the table service. Fish seemed to be super fresh and reasonably priced. Actually, I think the prices were about the same as back home...More

Alright you have to line up at 4:00 pm on Sun or Mon for the 5:00- 6:00 pm. The one hour wait is definitely worth it because the food is prepared to gourmet standards - the service is quick and professional by Brian N., who...More

During our two-week vacation, we attempted to make a reservation at Sansei in Kapalua a couple of times, it was completely booked every night until 9pm. Then one day we were in Kihei, and thought we’d visit the Kihei location without a reservation by sitting...More

Aweful! Maui is on an island so why the outrageous sushi prices? A lineup out the door? This sushi compares to Costco fast takeout and not a sushi restaurant. So bad! Maybe we’re super spoiled in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island with Sushi Nori , John’s...More

My husband and I love to come to their late night happy hour while visiting Maui. You can take advantage of their delicious sushi at 1/2 the regular price and listen to some pretty talented karaoke singers as well! We haven’t been brave enough to...More

The main floor seems a bit crowded, but our group of 6 got a window-side table in a quiet area that was perfect for us. The waitstaff is laid back, but we never wanted for anything. The food was amazing. Our sushi-eaters said it was...More

The Sunday and Monday evening "early bird" special (5 to 6 PM) has to be the best value in the Kihei-Wailea area. Almost all food items, including most sushi, are 50% off. The line starts forming outside well in advance, so arrive early to make...More

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
