We had a pleasant and tasty meal, sitting at the bar. The restaurant was quite busy and we were happy to get a seat.

Went to dinner at Sansei in Kapulua the first full day on the island at the recommendation of other vacationers and locals. Since we didn't have reservations (highly recommended), we had to wait in line 45 minutes before the restaurant opened with the hopes of getting a table. Since they take the reservations first, as I would expect, we were... More

Our experience was incredible. We went with a cousin who is a Maui local and got into the locals night feed on Monday. We had been to Sansei twice before and every time is a revelation. They pulled out all the stops and the food and service was the best on the island. Our cousin turned us on to some... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Sansei. They have very creative and unusual rolls and the fish is so fresh and sweet. It is very crowded all the time so reservations are best to ensure you won't wait a long time. We had a delightful server who we joked with all evening. A lovely dining experience.

This is, by far, the best Sushi I've ever had. Really Fantastic. They even got me to eat the nasty looking Urchin stuff which surprisingly was very good. Also, spotted Clint Eastwood and Fam there. Kinda fun.

Wife and I had a much-anticipated dinner here on a Wednesday evening in February 2017. My stepdaughter had been here before and said "you gotta go", so go we did. This was after having tried the preceding Sunday, when they don't take reservations. We were a bit too far back in the queue and got shut out, just like one... More

When we oredered she said we had... More
