This is the absolutely the number one restaurant to visit! And you will want to make sure you plan on going at least twice. Go with friends so you can order different things and try a little off of each plate. The prices are very...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

Food was great, and so was the service. Really enjoyed my creative and tasty sushi. There was a wide variety of food on the menu -- which was great, as my husband doesn't care for sushi, but that's why I was at Sansei. The restaurant...More

Long wait for a to go order. While they tried to make what we wanted they fell short. The miso soup my mother said needs help. The sushi was not up to what she wanted either. They did have a non-seaweed wrap. I would try...More

A must if you're a sushi lover. An unassuming location adjacent to the Foodland grocery in Kihei, Sansei is the best place on Maui for sushi. The fish is always fresh and high grade. Beautifully presented and always delicious. Miso soup is robust. Excellent selection...More

This place serves pasta and sushi, its an odd combo, ravioli appetizers and sashimi main, it works. Food is very good and everything we ate was enjoyed.

Good signature items, but it’s a blah room and with all the foodie options on Maui with an exceptional room, it’s not a must see IMO. If you’re on Maui for over 10 days or a repeat visitor definitely add it to your list, but...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
