Monstera Noodles & Sushi
Monstera @ MaunaLani CentreGreat place! We'll be back... Again & again, and with friends.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food; restaurantFantastic food; restaurant is among the very best of the very best Japanese restaurants in the USA. Norio is a master sushi chef and the quality of the food and presentation are outstanding! The restaurant noise level inside can be very noisy, however, eating on the
terrace is very quiet. Sitting at the sushi bar is a special treat when Norio is presiding. Also, you can order omakase at the sushi bar or at the table. You might want to set a price level if you are budget conscious. In addition to sushi there are many other dishes on the menu which are also very tasty. If the specially prepared sea bass is available it is truly wonderful.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific place. Loved everythingTerrific place. Loved everything we had. Service excellent. Best sushi on the Big Island or anywhere outside of Tokyo we think. Eating at Monstera Noodles & Sushi is a must on your next trip.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the trip to Big IslandYour Review:
Ate here twice this visit. Fantastic food; Norio is an exceptional sushi chef. Eating on the terrace is quietest place. Diverse menu with every dish outstanding.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food - but kids want moreWe dined on a recommendation from friends. Our kids love sushi and they eat plenty when we dine at our favorite places closer to home which have very good food at reasonable prices. However, Monsterra sushi pricing was in a different league, and it was tough to restrain the kids from running up a giant tab. Frankly, the "kids meals" were not of interest to our girls as they want sushi. The food and service was good, but it wasn't as much fun saying no when the kids want more but we've already racked up a decent sized bill. They left a little hungry, but we were saved by a big dessert elsewhere.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent! Very inexpected.Excellent sushi and sashimi. We will definitely return as it is a find! So unexpected. We put ourselves in the hands of the chef and we are so glad we did. we had an excellent waiter-very knowledgeable.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the food! The bestI love the food! The best Sushi on the island of Hawaii. Have the 'Original' MaiTai, not the Monstera MaiTai.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMChuck Norris Roll is a Must-Have!Monstera is always on my "must-do" list when on the Big Island! The Chuck Norris roll is amazing and keeps me coming back. The outdoor dining is lovely and the service is always wonderful.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic FoodThe food at this restaurant is fantastic! Try the Chuck Norris roll, the California roll, the sugar snap peas, and the Yaki Soba. The original Mai Tai is better than the Monstera Mai Tai.
We came two nights in a row because the food was so good.
We will definitely return to this restaurant.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMonstera never disappoints.Monstera never disappoints. The food and service are always beautifully prepared. The sushi bar is fun.
The service right down to reception is flawless.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and consistentlyDelicious food and consistently fresh and novel presentation. Generally good service although one of our entrees was brought out about 5 minutes before the other. The staff should have waited to bring both entrees at the same time. Aside from that, we have told our friends to eat at Monstera and we will definitely return many times.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite on the Kohala Coast!We ate at this restaurant three times in our two weeks on the Kohala Coast!
The menu is wonderful with lots of tasty choices. We sampled widely and were pleased with all.
The wait staff was very helpful with our selection process and gave excellent, enthusiastic
service. One evening the weather was warm enough to allow us to eat outside.
Highly recommend.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch food with top notchTop notch food with top notch service. Only reason I am at 4 stars is because they were out of sea urchin due to the night before parties. You are right next to the ocean, go get some more! Poor planning on their part2/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
