Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar Restaurant Review

: Forget any preconceived notions about Sansei being just a traditional Japanese restaurant. The unofficial slogan? Home of the other red meat: ahi. Hip waiters with Spock sideburns chat with customers about unfiltered saké. A fat ceramic cat sits on the counter wearing dark sunglasses. Three sushi chefs roll their gourmet goods behind the bar. We like the seared foie gras nigiri sushi with caramelized Kula onions and unagi demi-glace. You also might find Japanese BLT sushi with crisp salmon skin and tomato or panko-crusted ahi sashimi over soy-wasabi butter. Put these on the table, and customers yell and shout with joy. In fact, owner D.K. Kodama's cutting-edge cuisine and upbeat ambience distinguish Sansei from other Japanese restaurants on Maui. This is the perfect place to graze on a number of appetizers, such as a half lobster tail stuffed with spicy crab and masago.
