Monstera is a hip, casual, moderately priced restaurant providing great food, service, ambiance and value. We are more than a typical sushi restaurant--we have included menu items of Noodle Houses and Izakayas (Japanese Pubs of Japan) to offer you a selection of dishes never seen before on the Big Island. Our philosophy is smile in, smile out. We want you to feel welcome with our gracious local-style hospitality and enjoy great food at a great price in this beautiful location. We hope this will be a stopping point for those traveling along the coast or after visiting a nearby beach.

Named after a non-native, mysterious plant found in Hawaii, Monstera offers a wide selection of items, including sizzling platters and drinks in a casual, yet hip, atmosphere. Here, guests can sit in crocodile print booths under soft lighting and listen to familiar tunes or dine alfresco. Monstera is owned and operated by Big Island residents Norio Yamamoto and Wes Monty.

Their reservation system accepted an 8:15 request from us (8:30 was also available). We were a few minutes late and arrived to find the place empty except for another couple who were just about to leave...then we were informed "The kitchen closes at 9. Anything you want must be ordered by then." Needless to say, this was a very rushed dinner! The food is always good there, but why take reservations at a time when you don't really want people to come? I certainly would not go back for dinner after 7:30!!!

Very nice restaurant. Service was fine. Unfortunately food was just okay. My yaki soba noodles were bland. I put wasabi and ginger in them from my husband's sushi. My husband's kimchi pork was tasty.

Received an email from OpenTable today. Email stated we did not eat there. We did eat there and had a wonderful dinner. For some reason the restaurant did not acknowledge that we ate at the sushi bar and we did not get credit for it. Please let me know how we can remedy this situation. When we got to the restaurant I told the person that we had an open table reservation and they said we could just go sit at the sushi bar.

Service was not good . Everything was so slow . We had ordered drinks before our meal and needed up receiving them well after finishing dinner.

Another wonderful dining experience at Monstera. Last week we went with our family including grandchildren & this week we went with good friends who did the ordering & introduced us to the most amazing seafood that we hadn't tried before . Both occasions were great . We will be back again !

Once again the food was absolutely delicious. Sashimi fresh & tasty. Tempura Shrimp Roll very good as was the California Roll & Spicy Ahi Roll. Good & Spicy! Their wasabi is the so good & super spicy. Service was great. We'll be back. Will ask for outdoor seating as the noise level inside was LOUD.
