Overall, I've had better sushi, but I must say that the additional pieces of fresh water and salt water eel I ordered were delicious! My brother ordered the Dragonfly roll, and couldn't stop raving about it!

We found the place rather by accident. When we got there, we were both pretty hungry but the place was full. They offered us to wait for half an hour or to be seated at either the sushi bar or the cocktail bar, each with full service. We chose the sushi bar, which turned out all right. The place is...

Found this on accident. Was in same lot as the grocery store. Actually went back a second date time for late night holy hour. Karaoke, drink specials, and half price sushi!

Went during the half price special on Mondays. They were able to accommodate my large party. Staff was great. The sushi was ok. I've definitely had better and I'm from Illinois. The food also came out staggered for our group so a lot of people were just getting their appetizers as others were getting their meals. The staff was also... More

OK when it comes to black cod and roasted brussel sprouts, they outdo others. Nice ambience and excellent creative sushi. Freshest sashimi and nigiri. Can't go wrong with any of their rolls. Even have a happy hour! Service sometimes is spotty. Sit by the sushi bar for better service. We are on island often and always stop here.

It's been a few years but the last time I ate here it was amazing. Sadly, times (or popularity?) have changed it. I think the "everything" sushi rolls impress most diners due the overwhelming presence of every fish combo possible. But really good Japanese food does the basics well. Not here. The fried calamari was undercooked, oily and terrible. The... More

On our family trip to Maui my husband and I wanted a date night. We were surprised that so many restaurants closed by 9:00, we really wanted some good food without feeling rushed. Looking at the hours we chose Sensei and very glad that we did. The food was nothing short of amazing! I had the duck and my husband... More

We found this gem on Open Table and they were very accommodating for a large group of 13, booked the same day. The ambience is very nice with quite a few tables. The seating is a little cluttered with many tables beside each other, but it was comfortable. The food was very tasty and fresh. It took minimum time and... More

I went here last year for a Mother's Day dinner and let's just say it didn't blow me away. For the price I was expecting something a little bit better and it was just decent but it may be because I am used to having amazing sushi back home in Vancouver Canada. Make reservations tho as they get very busy.... More

Aloha! Coming to Maui over the past 10+ years, Sansei remains a consistent stop for a place to enjoy a great meal and friendly service. We take advantage of the Sunday or Monday 50% off happy hour where most of the menu prices are discounted yet the quality is not. This year's callout is the '69 Roll' - if you... More
