“Sushi was just ok”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I love sushi. I will try it at almost any establishment. The sushi was just ok. I told my wife that it was one step better than the sushi bars we have on the mainland where they mass produce sushi and place the plates on a train that snakes through the restaurant. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was not pleased. You could do better

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The early bird special on Sundays and Mondays was a great deal. After our first visit we came back the very next night because we liked it so much and there were so many choices on the menu. They have an amazing selection of sushi rolls, and while not all of them are "authentic" sushi fare, all of the rolls we tried were excellent! One of these days maybe we'll try an entree but so far haven't been able to tear ourselves away from the awesome variety of appetizer rolls. Can't wait for our next trip back to Maui so we can eat at Sansei's again!

“Good experiences at Sensei in Waikoloa Beach on The Big Island”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I enjoyed dinner here twice recently with my spouse. Excellent asian fusion cuisine. Very popular with the locals. They appreciate good value and fine food. Restaurant is low key in decor but provides fine dining. Both our experiences were positive. The menu options are many. We enjoyed every dish we ordered. Sushi was very tasty as were the non-sushi dishes. Service was friendly and attentive. Wine and beer are value priced. Last year we had a good experience at the Sensei in Kapulua on Maui.
