Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar - KIHEI, Maui
Absolutely delicious sushi rolls!!! Definitely recommend the Panko crusted seared Ahi roll. This place is on our “favorites” list for next time.
The sushi was delicious and fresh. We arrived around 5:45pm and our waitress got our order in quickly in order to get the 25% off for happy hour, which ended at 6pm. Great sushi and great service!
Great staff that made it a great evening! Food and chefs were fabulous!
Always enjoy Sansei in Kihei.
Great Food, Great Service.
Reservations very convenient too.
Will definitely be back.
Our server was awesome. Very professional. The food was excellent.
Great birthday dinner and the staff was very accommodating. Every single dish was outstanding.
Unique and flavorful food with an extensive sushi and roll menu. The flank steak was a delightful surprise at how good it was too. Casual atmosphere with elegant food.
The server didn't even offer if we wanted to order from the entree menu, my drink was wrong and he dissapeared. He was kind a irritated.
the best at what they do, can not go wrong with their fish dishes and sake!- We always dine there at least 2 to 3 times when we visit Maui, great restaurant and only on Maui!
Food is ‘mass produced’, not prepared.
Whenever we visit Maui, we always schedule a dinner date at Sansei
The first time we were dining in this restaurant was 2002, the year it was established at the present location. That is now 17 years ago, and the food is as excellent as it was then. That's the secret for a successful restaurant, continuity and consistency in preparing and serving excellent food. Highly recommended, but as the Latin proverb goes "de gustibus non est disputandum", taste is in the eye (or should I say mouth?) of the taster.
Still an amazing place for sushi on Maui - you cant go wrong.
I was a bit disappointed, having had an outstanding meal once before. The crab and lobster ravioli was great but the fish was over cooked, a cardinal sin for a seafood restaurant. Think I’ll stick to the sushi next time.
4/28 great food
The food, service was fabulous every time we come and eat there! 5-stars all the way
As always Sansei did not disappoint, we go here the night before we leave every year! Outstanding!!
We had a wonderful dinner at Sansei. The waitress was very friendly and the food was excellent.
Absolutely great food. A MUST dinner experience when in Maui
We had an amazing dinner at the Kapalua location a couple of days prior, so the Kihei experience was a HUGE disappointment!
The ahi was poorly cut and had gristle running through it, which was actually kind of gross. In general the quality and presentation of the food was much poorer :(
The lobster risotto that my wife ordered was not very good. The lobster taste frozen. She only took a few bites. Should have send it back.
The service was really lacking, 20 minutes to get our drink order, wasabi/ginger after rolls were already consumed, never cleared dirty plates that we finally stacked and set at the end of the table to get them out of our way. Food was ok, seems that maybe there isn’t as much attention to detail as in the past. Maybe just an off night, will give it another try.
We have been here a few times over the years but after our last dining experience, won’t go back. Our sushi tasted like the sea and not fresh as it has in the past, the seaweed was chewy, and none of our items were worth ordering again. I think Sansei needs a refresh before we will go back. We frequent a lot of sushi restaurants but this is one we are not recommending to others. If there is any consolation it is that our waiter Andy was attentive, personable, and had an upbeat personality. He made our experience a more pleasant one.
The food here is wonderful but the service is lacking. Our server was not happy to serve and there were many others who seemed put out including the hostess. We had reservations, you will wait an hour without them.
A bit disappointing. Food was OK, not outstanding, prices pretty steep for size of portions. Was recommended to us by someone. Hostess was curt, but server was nice. Pretty tight table spacing! Food tasted OK, tempura was late and perhaps that's why it was a bit underdone. Had read some really good reviews, perhaps something has changed? Was very busy, so maybe what we ordered was not the top of the choices. For our last dinner in Kihei, in hindsight we would have chosen somewhere different.
We never come to Maui without a couple visits to Sansei. Reasonably priced very fresh well made sushi. Try it and you’ll want to return like we have time after time.
Consistently good food and experience! Sansei is always busy but accommodated us in a reasonable time, the food is good, and waitstaff always very kind and friendly. We continue to return over the years knowing that we’ll enjoy it!
As always we LOVE Sansei!!! Impeccable EVERY SINGLE TIME. Service, food, ambiance is on point
It is beneficial to arrive early as the restaurant fills up fast. Reservations are highly recommended.
Overall I love their food!
Our server was amazing! We go there often for date night and the server gave us a dessert on the house! The food was excellent!
Have been going here for years,excellent food,we are always seated quickly and in the area
we request when booking(along the long wall beneath the windows,table for two)
Food comes quickly so don't expect to be here a long time.
Reservations a must.We are from Vancouver,so used to excellent quality suishi ,
we were not disappointed.
Reasonably priced sushi (especially during happy hour), fresh and delicious.
Not great by a long shot. Way overpriced, not accommodating of food allergies, super packed, lots of loud kids. Save your money and go elsewhere.
We hit the 5:30 25% off main menu deal. Still pricey but very good.
The freshness of the food was remarkable. The presentation was a real bonus but the quality and taste of the food is likely why people return to this restaurant. I believe the food prices were reflective of the quality. The dinner I had (Japanese jerked chicken) was more than I could eat. I would absolutely return here, and will recommend to all.
Best sushi on Maui, great service, wonderful presentation. Recommend this to everyone. Only
Place I eat sushi because is good and fresh. Wonderful staff.
Food here is always amazing. This time was no different. We were seated right away. The service was great. The food was delicious. The ambiance was comfortable and the noise level was moderate. We keep coming back here time and time again.
Great sushi and sashimi, wait staff were very friendly and helpful in making our selections. Prices were very reasonable for Hawaii, and significantly lower than our hotel. Very enjoyable evening and we look forward to dinner there next trip to Hawaii. Definitely recommend the Panko-crusted fresh Ahi sashimi.
