Great restaurant with a great location. Depending on which side of the island you are on their are two locations to choose from. Great sushi and good selection of sake.

We have just finished a horrible meal at Sansei. The following is a short, but incomplete, list of deficiencies: too many tables in our alcove; too high lighting, an extremely loud waiter; tasteless spider roll; and tasteless shrimp rolls and a completely overpriced menu. In fact, I couldn't even find the shrimp roll in the mass of bird nest style... More

The waiter was helpful in choosing plates. Food was really good, but a bit pricey. Quiet atmosphere with tight placement of tables.

Very fresh and creative sushi at reasonable prices. We really enjoyed trying rolls that we had never tried. This is extremely popular, though, so you should make reservations.

The butterfish, I dream about their butterfish. Whenever we come to Maui that is a must. They do a great job on everything! The rolls are so fresh and the staff can answer any question and point you in the right direction. They are always busy so make a reservation.

If you are in the area and love Sushi like we do, this place is amazing. They have a great selection of dishes and all we tried were truly amazing. They melt in your mouth. You must however make a reservation as they are full most nights and your wait could be a long one.

We found this place on TripAdvisor and it is walking distance of our hotel, right next to the Honolua Store, another good stop itself. We didn't have reservations but got there early enough to be let in with the first wave and were seated at the Sushi Bar. We met some locals in line who recommended the 69, the Shrimp... More

We went to Sansei for the sushi - and were not disappointed. The food was fantastic. My family ordered a selection of sushi, including kampachi sashimi which we can't get at home. The maguro was the best I've ever had. the miso glazed butterfish was exceptional. The ramen soup looked delicious, although too large for us to order in addition... More

Don't be one of those people stuck in the long, long line waiting for a table. Make a reservation! Why? Because at 5:15 there is 25% off many items on the menu and holds of hungry folks hoping to get a table and order by 6:00PM. We enjoyed fast, friendly and efficient service when we dined there. The food was... More
