    There are much better sushi places in Maui (better knife skills, correct sushi rice, etc). This one is good for the half off early bird special.

    Check out specialty rolls - spider roll is a personal fave and foie gras sushi a luxury. Early bird discounts. Make reservations or be prepared for a wait!

    Just okay, not great :/ Panko crusted ahi and brussels sprouts *are* good. Most rolls are too large and unwieldy for one bite, but too small for two. FYI: vegetarian options are very limited.

    This place is consistently awesome. Melt in your mouth sushi. Panko crusted tuna is a must. Many unique rolls and the freshest sushi eve.

    We arrived at 4:55 on a Monday and were the last party seated for the 50% off special. The food was great and even the pre-discount prices were not bad - about normal for our home of Dallas. A++

    If you're not eating with a group, I suggest sitting at the bar. The guys there are helpful, nice, and we seem to get our food faster. But I've only been here twice. What do I know?

    My husband and I showed up here at 7 on a Friday night and sat at the bar. It was better than waiting 30 min, and we got our sushi a lot faster.

    If you're going on Sunday, go early to wait for the 5ish seating - 50 percent off almost everything (not alcohol). About 30 plus people in front of us, 40 minutes before they let us in .

    Ask for the Dragonfly roll (which isn't on the menu). It's worth it! Also enjoyed the tuna carpaccio.

    Overrated and mediocre sushi. Better off ordering the hot dishes. Lobster ravioli and miso butterfish were really yummy, but nothing super special.

    The Sansei Special Roll was pretty much the best maki roll I ever had - a creative original with crabmeat salad and a touch of Thai sweet chili sauce...

    Fantastic sushi. The Matsuhisa Miso Butterfish is divine, and so is the Panko crusted Ahi and the Mango Crab roll from the Lahaina awards.

    At the sushi bar, let the chef choose for you and ask for a sashimi sampler trio of locally caught fish. You won't regret it.
