Opens only from monday - thursday and you have to make a reservation before at the concierge. The prices are high but the sushi is really on a top level. If you're a Sushi gourmet it's worth to go

We sat at the sushi bar and ordered specialty sushi rolls and we even asked the sushi chef to create a unique roll, which he did!!! Had a bottle of wine and all was reasonably priced! Service was excellent

When you are at Kapalua and want sushi you have two excellent, contrasting choices. One choice is Sansei Kapalua which is excellent and very much westernized. Sansei is casual, free wheeling fun with an active (and often noisy bar). Great food and fun Another choice...More
