Had a very good meal at Sansei. Dinner could have started the wrong way due to an unruly customer who was looking for trouble but waitstaff and Asst Mgr Brie handled it well even when he returned to the restaurant. Lots of gluten free choices...More

We dined at Sansei after checking in to our hotel. We were warned it might be a bit of a wait but got lucky and walked right in since we were eating a bit on the early side. Shortly after us there was a bit...More

We have seen this mentioned so many times and have ignored it on previous visits to Maui. A big mistake! We have access to amazing sushi restaurants in Vancouver so we tend to shy away from sushi restaurants when traveling. We visited this evening with...More

The sushi here is really good but the value comes at happy hour since you get 25% off on all entrees you need to have reservations or get there before they open the line forms early. If you love sushi you will leave happy.

Very nice sushi bar near the Ritz. Good fresh food and fair prices. Was busy at 8PM on a weeknight so recommend reservations

If you like sushi or at least willing to give it a try, this is the place to go. For me, this is one of the very best restaurants I have ever eaten in (and that includes some very well known, pricey, Michelin star places)....More

Had dinner here. Their menu offers all kinds of new twists for maki, plus the usual sushi and sashimi. Everything is really fresh and tasty. Excellent service. A tad on the pricey side, but that was expected.

Awhile back Sansei did not take reservations, but they do now. We were there a few months ago & they took our reservation. I highly recommend a reservation so you ensure that you will get a table at the time you want... More
