We went to Sansei for Valentine's Day and the service was great. I would say the quality was good, but about your standard sushi restaurant. Nothing mind-blowing. I would recommend it if you're in the area and looking for a good bite.

Sansei's is our favorite "fancy" restaurant for a family outing to Maui. They are family/kid friendly, very good service, and have the creative variety of sushi to choose from that we wouldn't do at home. Our grandkids 4-9 yrs old get to choose their own meal plus we share our plates with each each other. It's not inexpensive but well worth the enjoyment the cuisine and staff provides with friendly efficient service.
We were happy to see a Sansei's opened in Seattle where we enjoyed a special family event last summer.

We asked some locals for a restaurant suggestion while we were vacationing in Maui. For local flavor and atmosphere they recommended Sansei Seafood. It did not disappoint. All of the food was delicious and looked beautiful. The waitress was attentive and prompt. It was loud because there was a party going on with the owner and friends but it did not change our visit or the delicious food. I would highly recommend this place. It is fine dining and priced accordingly.

We had a good time, were served very well and enjoyed the food a lot. The tempura was crisp, the noodle dish savory and the tempura shrimp cooked perfectly. Obviously a popular place for the locals as well as tourists. Aloha sprit was everywhere.

I love going to Sansei's to get my sushi fix and my wife can enjoy her favorite foods as well if it's not sushi. They have very flavorful appetizers and entrees. We both love Sansei for Japanese style foods. Also another reason we went was because I got my in-laws a $100 gift card so they can enjoy a nice dinner on their own and I received a $15 gift card from the website when I was making the gift cards. Thank you

Hard benches at the table. But the service and food make up for them. Panko ahi roll was amazing. The crab ramen with truffle broth was equally amazing. Calamari salad ditto. Teriyaki beef ditto. They have found the sweet spot of combining all the tastes but especially umami. Highly recommended.

My friends & I really enjoyed eating out at Sansei. Great food & great service went well with many laughs and a friendly environment. Great selection on the menu for food & drinks for everybody and child & family friendly. I strongly would recommend Sansei to a friend.
