    Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar: Yummy Sushi

    Sansei's is a great place to hang out before and after work. Enjoy the company of friends and coworkers, while dining on some of the best sushi you could ever hope to have! Can be a bit noisy at times, especially if you are there on Karaoke night. Can be rather expensive, but If you go before 5pm, or after 10pm on certain days of the week, You'll receive 50% off. A great way to dine, save some money, and enjoy yourself! The rock shrimp, and miso butterfish is a must while there. and for desert, don't forget to try the friend ice cream. Exceptional! Not only is the food great, the presentation is also pleasing on the eyes. Rather busy during most times, so expect to wait in a long line..unless you make reservations in advance.

    Favorite Dish: 1.Rock Shrimp
    2.Miso butterfish
    3.Caterpillar Roll
    4.Fried Ice Cream. (Mmmm...)
    Basically everything on the menu. Haven't had anything that dissapointed me yet! ;)

    Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar: Best Sushi in Maui

    by yodini Written Feb 24, 2005

    This is one of the best dinners we had in our 10 days on Maui. The food here is terrific !Everything my husband and I tried was a wonderful creation by the chief. You must try their Asian rock-shrimp cakes, amazing. The Restaurant is casual but comforable, and they have a nice wine list. There's is Karaoke every night 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Money-saving tip: Eat early. all food is 25% off between 5:30 and 6:00.

    San-sei: Don't miss sake bombing along with some karaoke!

    by CamellaJ Updated Apr 27, 2004

    This had to have been my top favorite restaurant in Maui... if not my favorite. Their tuna sashimi melts in your mouth! So we were there with a whole wedding party, so we took over the entire stage with the karaoke, which made this one of my favorite nights. You must try to American/Japanese custom of sake bombing! You drop a small shot glass of sake into a cup of beer followed by immediate pounding. You must drink the whole thing, otherwise it just doesn't taste that great. Great way to be social and be messy. Or with a twist... place two chopsticks over the glass about an inch apart... place the shot glass on top of this... on the count of three you bang the table and the shot glass falls into the glass, which you will immediately drink... chug.
    But yeah, this restaurant rocks! Food, entertainment... fun!

    Favorite Dish: I forget what it's called but it's on their specials list and it's tuna sashimi with a miso dressing deep fried... oh my!

    We were taken by locals who swear by the sushi and the prices. Their late nght menu features all sushi off the menu HALF PRICE!

    i believe appitizers were also half price. Everything was just great....BUT...they also have late night Karaoke and it was out of hand!!

    Soooo bad that it was good. do not expect to have a conversation!!!

    Favorite Dish: Everything was crazy fresh!! Marinated calamari cadillc rolls...all specials were great. Spicy tuna rolls were amazing. Really really really good food.
