love this place
Really fine and well priced sushi. Large and varied menu. Can be noisy, so we often choose to eat outside on the patio.

Having eaten here many times
Having eaten here many times I can truly say they have the best freshest sashimi of any Japanese restaurant in the ares. Excellent prices on lunch specials too.

Fantastic sushi at reasonable prices (for the Big Island!). Not fancy but if you love fresh fish, this hit the right notes.

Go for the sashimi
Shiono has the best quality, freshest fish on the island. I haven't had sushi/sashimi this good since I was last at a Nozawa restaurant.

Great Sushi close to the Ocean!
Enjoy sunset first ouside, then go for Sushi at Sushi Shiono. Make sure you have a reservation! This place is crowded in the evening. Great Sushi on Big Island! True recommendation. Everything super fresh and delicious. Will come back tonight :-)

Good rolls, patio area needs help
We opted to sit outside on their small patio since the interior was way too cold. The patio offers (almost) a glimpse to the ocean across the road but they could do more with the atmosphere of the patio. However, our focus was on the food which was delicious. We like to ask for our rolls to be "double-cut" meaning the pieces are smaller and the chef complied. Between the 2 of us, we had 3 rolls and that was enough to satisfy. The only other place we have tried for sushi on the island is Kenichi which is good but unless you go at happy hour, their prices are much higher. We felt we got a better value for the money at Shiono. Next time, I will take a wrap and we will sit at the sushi bar to watch the chefs.

Sushi was great and very fresh. Prices were a bit expensive. Service was fair at best -- they did not refill water glasses or check in very often to see if we needed anything.

Great but Loud
You'll love Sushi Shiono. Service is friendly, efficient, and very accommodating. Presentation was great. Portions were ample. Every dish we ate or saw appeared to be very fresh. The wine list was okay, pricey, but not as high as we had seen elsewhere. We did not try the sake, but the list was ample. The restaurant was loud and friendly. every table full on Saturday night. We made a reservation, and were seated immediately at the only available table. Take out is available. We saw many diners that looked to be local, a good sign. Food at other tables looked great, too. It made me want to order past my appetite. I would put this on my must-try list for Japanese food lovers. I'll return next time I visit Kailua, Kona.

No better sashimi anywhere.
The freshness and quality of Shiono's fish is top notch. If you are an ahi fan, don't miss the garlic ahi nigiri or sashimi. Dinner prices are reasonable and lunch prices are a steal by Kona standards.

Volcano Roll was INSANELY good!! We came to the island for our Honeymoon, and this was one of the most memorable meals we had from Hilo to South Point to Kona to Kohala to Waimea and back again.
