Diner Reviews
  • "First, we have to give the restaurant credit for going out of their way to seat us even though we were late for our reservation. The lateness explains why several menu items weren't available -- a good sign in our opinion since it indicates a commitment to freshness. We found the service to be friendly. The specialty rolls were creative -- we especially liked the lollipop roll -- as delicious as it was beautifully presented."

  • "Found service to be seated super slow and music a bit too loud. Food still good. Had multiple servers who got confused as to who asked what and if order was placed."

  • "Sushi Bushido was a pleasant surprise and brought some great local fish to our plates. I love to see local items on menus and the ahi and hamachi did not disappoint - fresh, firm and flavourful - the three F's of sushi were all in play. We had a table of 7 and our waitress was great - being the last table of the night didn't result in the usual rush you out routine. She was patient with the kids but quick to attend to water, saki, juicenor whatever was needed. 2nd requests for rolls were happily attended to. The rolls had some local twists and were well presented and balanced. Overall a very good restaurant that I would gladly retuen to."

  • "We went to Sushi Bushido for my birthday and I was very much looking forward to it. Prices were steep but for sushi and Kauai it wasn't too terrible. What was really disappointing was the timing of the food. My sushi only dinner came out very quickly but we had to wait at least 1/2 hour for the rest of my family to get their food (teryiaki and a steak dish) which was really annoying, not to mention stressful as we had our two young children with us. We also had to wait a long time for our appetizer, by the time it came we were almost done eating. I would eat there again if the kitchen timing was better, but if not I probably wouldn't bother."

  • "We are in kauai on our honeymoon and we went here from our first dinner on kauai. Food was delicious. Not the best we'd ever had, but still really good. My favorite was the no foiling around. Overall nice meal, nice place. Would come back again."

  • "This was our second visit; the first being July 2013 when we last came to Kauai. The online reservation system was easy and insured a table at the time we wanted. The food was excellent as was our first experience."

  • "The mixed drinks were great. Food was tasty, especially the teriyaki steak and the sushi rolls. Service was great. The live musician and singer were excellent! Bring back Joey Charles; he is very talented! We decided to listen to him sing more, so we ordered more food and another drink--we found ourselves singing along with him from our table! Put this special restaurant on your list when you visit Kauai!"

  • "Waited for over 30 minutes for our table after getting there with a reservation already made. The restaurant was half empty. People came after us and were seated before us. Then when finally seated we waited over 15 minutes and "workers" kept passing us by and never even so much as made eye contact or offered water. They didn't even care one bit as we got up and walked out. They have successfully lost all of my future business. Way to go, lazy worthless staff!"

  • "Six of us ordered sushi and rolls and we enjoyed them all. The waitress recommended some special rolls, which we liked, too. Try the lollipop sushi, it's fun. Our only problem was when she spilled the special brown sauce for the Lollipop sushi on one of us, making quite a mess."

  • "Due to our late reservation (8:15pm, the only restaurant in the area that would take a reservation that late) our sushi was a little delayed because of a full restaurant. Our server Grant greeted us quickly and got our drinks going. He kept coming back and apologizing for the wait but we didn't mind. The music was good and the restaurant atmoshere was festive. Once the food came it came all at once and it was fantastic. The sushi chefs didn't cut any corners because we were the last table. The presentation and quality of the sushi was as if we were the 7:00 table. Again, every person we encountered there were friendly and professional. Grant was the best!"

  • "This was our 2nd time here and I've noticed they are known and well off known for their sushi, I wouldn't count on their regular food entrees (tempura, fish entrees, steak etc.) The sushi was very good and satisfying - The gold karat roll and Muchiko Roll (sp?). However, we ordered a mixed tempura plate and the spicy scallop/fish entrée and they were both ok. The fish entrée was overcooked, very dry. This goes for our 1st and 2nd time. We also got the soba salad and it didn't have enough dressing which was a simply fix. The steak we got the 1st visit also didn't have much seasoning and was not the greatest for over $30. Otherwise the ambiance and service was great! Our server did not mind our infant making a little bit of a mess."

  • "Really enjoyed Sushi Bushido during our stay in Kauai. We returned for a 2nd visit after having delicious sushi and entrees' on our first visit. One of the few locations open late. Live music during the week. We called ahead the first night, Wed, to hold a table for 4 and were seated within 10min after our arrival. Sushi rolls were delicious; spicy items are definitely spicy. Would recommend to anyone looking for sushi on the island."

  • "Went for sashimi and was not disappointed. Fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Kimi, our waitress, was exceptional. Service was far and above what the reviews would have you think. Maki rolls were good but not any better than we have had on the mainland. All in all it was a good meal. Go for the sashimi!!!!!!!!"

  • "I had very good feeling about this place the moment we walked in! It was very clean, the host was friendly and the waitress seemed new but nice enough. The tables were very clean and the menu was very well organized. That however was the end of the nice stuff. The food was very very low quality. The best roll they had was the California roll. My party of four had ordered 5 specialty rolls and well they looked nice, the taste was non existent and they rolls were so large it was near impossible to fit a piece into your mouth. All in all I can comfortably say that it was the worst sushi I ever had in my life."

  • "Beautiful Restraunt. The paintings inside are amazing. There's music and good energy inside. The food is OUTSTANDING. My favorites are the butter me up roll and of course their golden roll. I'm also impressed with opentable for making it easy. I had know idea that I could make reservations just like that!"

  • "We really enjoyed our dining experience here. Me and my husband likes Japanese food and this place did not disappoint. The only part we did not understand was, they made us wait for 15 mins when we have reservation and there were several tables open in front of us. A line has formed within that 15 mins and we were there on time. When the hostess finally decided to seat us, we were seated right on one of the initially open tables. Besides that, we had a great time."

  • "The rainbow roll was superb, subtle and tasty. Didn't care much for the lava roll - I guess I'm not a fan of warm sushi. The tsukamono was singularly disappointing. Though fresh, the dressing was strange and not the simple rice wine vinegar I'm accustomed to. Overall, imaginative, vibrant but pricey."

  • "We were staying at a resort in Lihue and the office personal said the locals love this place so we had to try it. We made a reservation and got in no problem, Service was great and the sushi was fresh and fantastic. We made a reservation for another night as well but were unable to go. If we are in Kauai again we will defiantly get back."

  • "The food was ok I always go to Kintaros n thought I try this place but u can get way more at Kintaros for way cheaper. N the servers arnt rude when givin the check n sayin she will give us her change back but in reality we tipped her big n she gives $5 left in the servin book. It was a good experience overall though the sushi chefs were great. No complaints on the food and drinks overall. Def our eyes were way bigger than our tummy."
