Delicious fresh sushi with a few unique rolls we have never had before! Definitely make reservations if you can as they get very busy for discount times!

Ate here for dinner. By the way if you come early dinner is 20% off. But even with this discount the food was not worth the price. We love the Sansei restaurant on Maui, but this location really disappoint. The fish was so thinly sliced...More

We couldn't get enough of the Sansei in Kapalua, but this location needs to step it up. The decor and the vibe don't have the same upbeat feel, but we could have overlooked that if the food had been as good. It wasn't. We ordered...More

After having a great meal at the Kapalua location, I was extremely disappointed with this experience. Service was abysmal, and I honestly think that our crab and lobster ravioli was first served to another table with its poor presentation. The sushi was average at best...More

Came here based on my client’s recommendation. Service is friendly and efficient. We ordered the following: Crusted ahi sashimi wrapped with spinach and arugula. It’s apparently their award winning dish. I did not like it just because when I get a roll, I really prefer...More

We made a reservation and when we walked in we were seated almost immediately. From there the meal went down hill. First we were told there was no tempura and there was a 30 minute wait on sushi. Not a big deal, we were not...More

The restaurant has a website with the menu. The price for the food is on par with all the other restaurants in Hawaii. They are all pricy.
