Easy sitting when they opened at 5:30 pm. We didn’t have any reservation. Waitress was quick to serve you and you get discount if ordered by 6. Sashimi was ok. Sashimi tasted good. But the two award winning dishes: ahi crispy roll and crab soup ramen were so so.

After having visited the Sansei in Kapalua multiple times, we tried the Kihei location b/c we stay in Wailea and did not have a car so it was closer... Bad, bad mistake. Service was slow, but it was the quality of the tuna that really threw us overboard... The tuna sushi was chewy and bright red. Two characteristics tuna isn't supposed to have. I'm talking super chewy. Anyway, For us there are better sushi restaurants on Maui. We won't be returning here.

When san sei opened in the Kihei location my husband and I were the very first customers thru the doors !! We were excited because we didn’t have to drive to Kapalua!! We come to Maui every winter for 2 months and SanSei was our most favourite restaurant !! We ate there regularly!! Most favourite dishes, Panko Ahi and the dynamite shrimp!! Well we went to San Sei tonite , first visit this year, well huge disappointment !!! The dynamite shrimp is no longer the sweet rock shrimp, it was too much batter and hard, the panko ahi was tasteless and falling apart !! The sushi very ordinary, not great !! I was told by the staff that it’s now a corporation and they changed the way food is prepared and they have gone on the cheap !!! Well good for the corporation saving money, the food was bad and we will not be back!! So disappointed !!

We were very impressed with the variety of options for dinner. The drinks were ok but my beer was great. Our server was incredibly attentive and professional. The food quality was good. Overall, a good night out.

Great sushi and my favorite time is.....certain evenings after 10PM. Yes, a great later place for 1/2 off sushi and drinks so you can get really adventurous in ordering! if you don't like it...try something else. There's also Karaoke to keep you amused between servings. I can hear it now...."Sweet caroline, dat dat da...good times never seemed so good"
