    One of our favorite restaurants!! Asian fusion cuisine. We like to share lots of appetizers so we can taste many different things.

    Sansei offers excellent Japanese food and specializes in sushi. Normally rated the #1 or #2 sushi restaurant on Maui. For you late-nighters, they have Karaoke on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights starting at 10pm. It's a hoot!

    My favorite sushi place in Maui. They have an early bird special if you are hungry after the beach - 50% off, but you have to be seated by 6:00 pm to get it, and people start lining up more than an hour in advance.

    If you like Sushi, this is the place to go. The menu is huge and includes a plethora of Asian infusion selections. Call ahead and make a reservation though.

    Only some of the best Sushi on Maui, unless you catch and prepare it yourself.

    One of my fave sushi spots on Maui on the strip in Kihei! Literally would recommend most of the menu. Must try's include Panco-crusted seared ahi, tempura veggies including Molokai sweet potatoes, mango crab hand roll, and the kuaui pie for dessert. A little locals secret: Get there around 4/4:30pm On Sundays to get a spot in line for half off EVERYTHING (except alcohol) until 6pm!!!

    The Sansei on the West Side in Kapalua is my favorite, but you can't go wrong with Sansei on either side. :)

    I just ate here again the other night, and was blown away. The food is so fresh and delicious, and after sitting at the sushi bar, I have a new-found appreciation for the chefs working here. The sake was unbelievable, and the sansei shrimp was an excellent appetizer. I can't wait to return.

    Sansei is one of the most popular sushi spots on Maui. They have so many choices and delicious rolls but really, the reason why I go to Sansei is the late night karaoke. If you've ever wanted to get up and sing "Welcome to the Jungle" here's your chance! I love the Kenny G: Thinly sliced fresh sashimi grade shiromi with shiso, minced garlic and masago in a tangy ponzu vinaigrette. Also, on Thurs, Fri, and Saturday from 10pm-1am sushi is 50% off.

    Get your sushi on! Early diners can get discounts daily for orders placed by 6:00pm (and 50% off on Sundays & Mondays). Night owls and karaoke lovers should definitely check this place out on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays – it’s karaoke and 50% off all sushi from10:00pm-1:00am. Come around 9:45 to get a place in line.

    Great restaurant for seafood and sushi. They have early bird specials which are good to go when you first arrive in Maui and have jet lag, and are prepared to have an early dinner.

    Solid Sushi spot. Very popular for a reason. Great speciality rolls, good portions and great service. Get here early. Made a reservation for 5:30 pm right when they open and that got us into the Early Bird special. Got to order before 6 pm for 25% off the menu. Make sure to order the Macadamia Nut fried ice cream.

    Great sushi! Only downside is that you're not the only one that knows about it. Go for a special occasion because the prices are high and the guest list is long, otherwise try to squeeze in during happy hour. Your stomach will thank you! Yum!

    Dragonfly roll (spicy tuna topped with ahi tuna, avocado, eel & special sauce) was excellent. Great selection. Everything has fresh out of ocean taste and texture. Look for the early bird and daily specials.

    This is pricey sushi if you're not here for the 50% off special (Sun/Mon, seated by 5:15pm now.) They opened a new location in Kapalua near the Ritz now. Rolls are terrific, but not a lot of locals. Maybe the secret is out!
