    We decided on the 2pm omakase because we anticipated less of a crowd, with the same service and quality - and were not disappointed. Each dish was very, very good. I especially liked how the ingredients (fish, uni, etc.) were fresh from around the world. And I highly recommend the sake sampler. It was well worth it!

    The place is hard to find, but once you get there, the intimate venue is the perfect place for Chef Ray's creations. Using a blend of the freshest seafood from Japan and homemade accents including different infusions of salt, the tastes here are unique. Great place to expand one's experience in omakase dining. The sushi here includes the usual seafood suspects, but only fresher, but with Chef Ray's innovative creations, it makes for new discoveries in taste.

    We had a wonderful omakase at Hihimanu. By far one of the most filling omakase dinner I’ve had with 18 courses plus dessert! Their fish was fresh and each dish was meticulously prepared. This made my husband’s 50th birthday celebration so memorable. Many thanks to the wonderful sushi chef and sous chef for a wonderful meal. We will definitely be back!

    Hihimanu was wonderful. From start to finish every piece of sushi was prepared and executed with the finest quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail. This may be the best Omakase I have ever experienced. The service exceeded all our expectations.

    I loved the Omakase and I loved the chef. Every time we’re back in Oahu we make sure we make a stop off to get Omakase with him. We always have amazing food and a hilarious interaction with the chef. Have recommended it to all of our friends!

    Had a wonderful anniversary celebration at Hihimanu sushi. Intimate dinner setting at the sushi counter, allowing us to meet and interact with other diners. Chef Ray was interactive and entertaining, and the staff was professional and attentive. They offer a variety of sake and beer. We brought our own sake (paid the corkage fee), and ordered a few beers as well. We dined for about 2.5 hours, but the time flew quickly! Thank you for a lovely evening!

    The 10 seater restaurant is nothing to shy away from...it definitely can put out some great sushi. Chef Ray and his team made you feel welcome and the service was outstanding. Chef Ray is very creative in his dishes that he presents, appealing to the eyes and yet very tasty. The 18 courses was plenty for us, but if you feel you didn't have enough there were optional choices presented for an additional charge, but believe me you won't need it. Walked out of there very satisfied. Live in Maui but when back on Oahu will definitely visit Chef Ray and his team again!

    Really beautiful 18 course meal - not your typical sushi resto, very caviar forward and uni forward — great service, sake, a wonderful sensation for your taste buds but not for everyone if you are more on the sushi rolls and sashimi side of Japanese / a sushi eater . It was a delightful surprise, 2 people = $500 so again not for everyone, The space is very quaint and non chalant you would never think of what is going to be on your plate. Highlights were homemade sauces, watching the chefs make everything in front of us and talking us through the dishes, and the amazing flavors. Textures were varied! Would recommend :)

    One of the worst omakase experience I’ve ever had in my life. Walked in with the restaurant live streaming the kitchen on Twitch. The courses are extremely priced for the bad quality of food, service, and uncanny atmosphere. The chef was so unprofessional that in one of the courses, the uni fell off multiple times from the rice underneath and he spent 2 minutes trying to keep it on top but instead of making it stay, the uni was crushed and melted around the rice. IT WAS SO FREAKING DISGUSTING!! His hands kept smearing and assembling the uni but it didn’t work and the whole piece looked like a 💩. In the end I HAD TO TELL HIM to make another piece for me ( it was mine that he screwed up). He also messed up my boyfriend’s piece later but didn’t even apologize. I was shocked along with two other customers who watched the entire process. Please spend your money elsewhere if you want real omakase experience. I highly regret going to this restaurant like even a ramen place is much much better!!!

    Can’t say enough about the incredible experience that my wife and I had here. Ray and his staff show the passion and dedication to their craft in every stage of the experience. If you’re able to find an open reservation, don’t hesitate to book it. If it was up to me, I’d give the restaurant 3 Michelin stars, that’s how blown away we were. Mahalo and continued success, Ray!

    I was so disappointed when walked in the restaurant. It looks dirty everywhere, and very messy. The kitchen counter tops, the fridge, the floors, storage place, cotton blinds from bar to inner kitchen, .. all look so dirty😂. I don’t wanna look anywhere during the whole meal, just look at my dishes. Food was ok. Last dish the mussels are not fresh.

    Overall foods are good. Two negative things here is: 1. They serve most sushi for two persons in the same plate. I don't think it is normally for Omakase places at this price. 2. Some foods like Uni, Mirugai, and Mussel has a bit strong smell than normal.
