Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was the worst sushi place we have never been. It was the polar opposite of the restaurant of the same name in Kapalua. We had three sushi rolls and all three were terrible. The vegetable tempura came late, and it was soggy and tasteless. The waitress was nice enough to take it off of the bill never-the-less we thought... More

My wife and I had dinner last night at Sansei Seafood in Kihei. We got there early - 5:30 when they opened. I was surprised how full the restaurant got by 6:00. We started with a special appetizer - ahi in a fried panko crust with spinach and arugula. It was in a sauce that was so good we kept... More

Fun atmosphere on a Friday night. After 10pm karaoke and 50% off drinks and food. Sushi was good, not amazing. Lots of variety to choose from though. 21+

Ate at the sushi bar. Had a great meal. Efficient friendly staff, big menu. Had them suggest and make a couple items for my lunch the next day once I was done.

I had never eaten Sushi before when we decided to go eat at Sansei. My m9m decided we should have a little bit of everything so I could get the full experience. I have to say that I don't think I will ever be able to find sushi so good again. It was amazing. I'm not an adventurous eater by... More

If you don't have a reservation, you need to arrive at 5:30 PM as soon as the restaurant opens. There is often a line-up waiting at the door for the restaurant to open. There is an advantage to eating early because many items on the menu are 25% off.

I went there after having read quite good amount of reviews hoping to find a good place to eat good sushi but actually I got disappointed. Not only the sushi hasn't much taste but also the service wasn't any better. The waitress went to take the order to another table that arrived after my table before taking my order only... More

We went early (4 ish), took some chairs and played "heads UP" until 5pm when they open the doors. The wait staff was super friendly and made sure that he explained everything that was available...and their suggested selections. He told us to keep a menu at our table so we could order more things if we needed to (which we... More

the Sensei in Kapalua is much better, the fried sweet potatoes were the best thing in Kihei restaurant, the rest of the meal was disappointing It's worth driving to Kapalua if you want good sushi.

Like many others, we waited in line for the 1/2 price meal. We went for the shorter bar seating line and it was a great call. We got direct access to our server and much better advice on both drinks and the food. My picky Asian family loved the sushi. And that doesn't happen often. So while I'm not the... More
