Save up all your pennies for a bite if this blissful sensation. I literally had to take a zen moment and floated in food cloud nine after taking the first bite. Not sure whether it's the foie gras or the sauce... well it doesn't matter, just eat it.

This is another place that you need reservations. We stopped by one night and the wait was 1 and half hours so we left. The start of the meal actually wasn't that great. A simple order of endame was both cold and undercooked. Maybe it's the way they do it there but typically it's warm when it's serviced but it... More

Had delicious, melt in your mouth sushi. The price was very reasonable, especially considering the price of some of the other meals we had in Maui. Our waitress was extremely friendly and the service was quick. 2 of our rolls came out within minutes. The shrimp dynamite took a little longer, but was worth it. Definitely try the Hawaiin Sunset...

While we don't come here every trip, we couldn't pass it up this time as we were staying at the Ritz on my wife's work trip and she loves her tuna sushi!!!! We managed to grab opening-time reservations on a Friday evening and after a short walk over from the hotel we were ready to rock. Not only did we... More

Always a good time. Great service, wonderful food. Can't remember if we have ever left not feeling good about the evening.Be sure to make reservations or there is a good chance you will wait for a table. Early seating offers 25% off on many items. Really good deal. Come hungry.

Such delicious options on the menu.... the basics you expect as well as lots of creative dishes. Get there before 6pm for a discount on the entire menu. Wonderful friendly service. Don't let the line discourage you when you arrive as a lot of people get there early and they have LOTS of seating once you are inside. Reservations are... More

Based on recommendations, I had high expectations for the food at Sansei. Maybe that was the problem. I've eaten at many sushi places both in Hawaii and elsewhere and Sansei is pretty average. First of all - DO NOT order the tempura. OK, OK. This is a sushi place but it is Japanese and they do have tempura sushi so... More

Located in their new location of the beautiful Kapalua resort area, the larger restaurant is casual. It has a very extensive menu but the time we went they were sold out of their specialty sushi rolls by 7:30 pm on Friday evening leaving just rolls we could get anywhere. A disappointment to travel to paradise and eat "ho-hum." The tempura... More
