Definitely not a place I would go again. Rolls are a bit sloppy and not that great tasting. Better food to be had in Kihei. Coconut's Fish Cafe is a much better place to spend your money!

The food was very very good.They decorated the plates very well.Although some sushi’s taste a bit dry.But other wise this is a very good choice for friends and family.

Nice place. Good food. And very family friendly. We didn't have reservations but if you go around 530 you can walk up and be seated. The dishes were mixed--the miso sea bass a hit. The sashimi mackerel, not so much. The rolls we ordered were...More

Nothing special about this place. It's an okay chain. Sushi was only fair. I am a snob when it comes to sushi since I eat it often. If you're tastes aren't as sophistacted and you are with people who want other choices then it's fine....More

We dined at two Sansei locations in 3 days. I think the one in Kapalua is better than Kihei. The one in Kihei was so loud and you can barely have a conversation. The food is less tasty . I ordered same dishes such as...More

I enjoyed the dinner. Had sushi and great appetizer of dragon prawns. Fried ice cream for dessert was okay. Overpriced in my opinion. But recommended by friends for sushi.

I’m confused about the great reviews for this place as we found it to be extremely generic and a very “BLAH” restaurant. Nothing we had was particularly good or special in any way. If you are someone who eats good Japanese food this place is...More

We’ve been going to Sansei our first night in Maui for years. We have our favorites, upcountry wok fried vegetables, spider roll, ultimate roll. But with few exceptions, everything we’ve ordered has been great and pretty reasonably priced. Last night we spent $200, including tip,...More

I have been to Sansei many times at various location. Each time the food was excellent and the choices almost unlimited. The Dynamite Shrimp should be ordered each time. On Sunday and Monday, all food is half price until 6 p.m....People line up but it...More

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
