A must if you're a sushi lover. An unassuming location adjacent to the Foodland grocery in Kihei, Sansei is the best place on Maui for sushi. The fish is always fresh and high grade. Beautifully presented and always delicious. Miso soup is robust. Excellent selection...More

This place serves pasta and sushi, its an odd combo, ravioli appetizers and sashimi main, it works. Food is very good and everything we ate was enjoyed.

Good signature items, but it’s a blah room and with all the foodie options on Maui with an exceptional room, it’s not a must see IMO. If you’re on Maui for over 10 days or a repeat visitor definitely add it to your list, but...More

My husband and I ate here twice during our 9-day visit to Maui. There are great happy hour deals on drinks and sushi (half off rolls!). Also, when I ordered the Grilled Hawaiian Ahi and Sansei's Award Winning Shrimp Cake entree, I think I was...More

The food left something to be desired! Do not get any of the deep fried items- they are overly fried, heavy, and greasy. The sushi was just ok. I think this place is popular because most people who frequent it are tourists who don’t eat...More

Wonderful food! Of course the sushi and sashimi were perfectly fresh! Wonderful staff couldn’t be more accommodating! We were seated without a reservation on a very busy night!

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

I can only speak for Sunday and Monday when I was there (late April). If you were seated by 6:00, you got 50% off all menu items (not drinks). There was some kind of discount in the late evening. 50% off all appetizers... More
