Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar

Japanese in Kapalua & Northern Beaches

The innovative sushi menu is the draw, but the non-sushi house specials, which often blend Japanese and Pacific Rim flavors, shouldn’t be overlooked. The spicy Dungeness crab ramen with truffle broth is a noteworthy prize. Order before 6pm for an early-bird dinner special. No reservation? Queue up early for one of the seats at the sushi bar.

The wine and cocktail menus are worth a look, too: try the refreshing Kai Lemongrass Vodka with lemon and lime juice and coconut water.
