This is, by far, the best Sushi I've ever had. Really Fantastic. They even got me to eat the nasty looking Urchin stuff which surprisingly was very good. Also, spotted Clint Eastwood and Fam there. Kinda fun.

Wife and I had a much-anticipated dinner here on a Wednesday evening in February 2017. My stepdaughter had been here before and said "you gotta go", so go we did. This was after having tried the preceding Sunday, when they don't take reservations. We were a bit too far back in the queue and got shut out, just like one... More

Very convenient to Wailea, Japanese/sushi place. Pleasant atmosphere and adequate service. I enjoyed my dinner as did we all, but my sons, who are the sushi mavens, said it was just ok, not special. I would still return.

The food is amazingly-great. Try the dynamite shrimp. The service is impeccable. Just be ready for a wait at times. We come back to this restaurant every year when we visit Maui. Sushi can be pricey, so have a bake sale or car wash to earn some money for this must visit restaurant. 😊

Sansei always comes through. A wide variety of sushi and butterfish to die for. The sauces accompanying the dishes are exquisite. A friendly staff and superb food. Try it

Although it is a Japanese restaurant, it looks a mixture of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai restaurant. It was so crowded that server forgot some items of our order. The taste of the food was okay, but the overcooked noodles and overwhelming soy sure and sesame seed oil overpowered salad were too far from an authentic Japanese restaurant.

We came here after Morimoto, and this is so much better: tastewise, and $$$ wise. The butterfly fish was excellents, and each dish that we order was top!
