Sushi was good, and portions were quite large. Only one free refill on soda though, and so busy that the service was only average from an attentiveness standpoint. Not that it’s the most relevant aspect of a sushi restaurant, but who limits fountain drink refills...More

We went to Sansei the evening we arrived on Maui -- never too soon to savor the great food. Nick was our server -- he is a great guy and host. Friendly, good suggestions, prompt service. We were going to have appetizers and share the...More

We love Sansei sushi. Especially on Sunday evenings. They have an early bird special of 50% off your bill. On Sundays it’s from 5 - 5. We usually get in line by 4 to ensure a table. The earlier you get seated the faster the...More

We’ve been to several Sansei restaurants on Maui the last 4 years and this last visit was ok. Still good food and a good value during happy hour, but no longer great.

We’ve eaten in many fresh fish / sushi bars and whilst this one was ok and had good reviews, I’d say it wasn’t as tasty at other places we’ve been to. Firstly it wasn’t fresh fish. I ordered the tempura crab and it was really...More

We came here looking for some fresh sushi. We sat down at the sushi bar and ordered drinks. Whilst looking at the menu to order our food, baby cockroaches came out right next to the fridge which stored the ‘fresh’ seafood. We left immediately as...More

Sansei Sushi is some of the best I’ve ever eaten. The service is good and very fast. The quality of the fish is amazing, and there’s something for everyone on the menu

We might be spoiled with PNW seafood, but this place was extremely disappointing. Ordered the oyster spoons. They were a bit warm and the oyster itself, lacked sweetness. Ordered the rainbow roll. It was dry, and the fish was sliced so thin, you could barely...More

Very extensive menu that not only includes much Japanese food but some great Seafood choices with a Japanese flair. The salmon was superb and the seafood pasta with Udon noodles was very generous with Shrimp, scallops and fish. The tempura is very light and some...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
