“Some of the best sushi on Maui!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I've been to Sansei many times and I would recommend it to anyone (local or tourist). They have great sushi at reasonable prices, especially if you go on Sunday or Monday between 5 and 6pm (50% off!). They don't take reservations until 6.30pm, so be sure to get there early if you are going for the 50% special. You can go casual or dress up, it's up to you! My husband and I particularly like the shrimp dynamite and spider roll. This is a good place to go on a date or with your family/friends.

“Food was Great!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

This was some of the best Sushi I've ever had. Location and service were great. We will definitely be going back when we visit the island again

“Good”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

The food and service at Sansei were good, but not the best meal on our trip. The sushi was a little slow even compared to other sushi restaurants. I might or might not go back. During peak seasons, it appeared you need a reservation. We did not need on in the Sept low season.

“Great food and location”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This restaurant is consistently good. Make reservations or line- up early. Great fresh fish, shrimp, crab, sushi, teriyaki steak. It's all great. Friendly staff and laid-back feel. Prices very fair.

“Not so great the second time around.”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We first visited the Sansei location in Wailea on the Big Island last Christmas. This time we decided to check it out in Kihei. The food didn't taste is great this time around. The service felt hurried and underwhelming. The food was abundant but wasn't awesome. It is also a bit overpriced. Because of lack of good food in Maui, Sansei is able to maintain its popularity and prices. Not my cup of tea anymore.
