Sushi Shiono - Kailua Kona
This is one of our favorite places to eat because everything is delicious and fresh!
Valentines Day dinner
Service was quik. Food preparation was awesome. Flavors was awesome as always. Sherry was extra helpful tho not our waitress. Our waitress was awesome as well. New lady. She did well. Place was busy n a bit of noisy-small space.
Food was outstanding! The dishes were elegant looking and tasty. Service was prompt and very friendly. Highly recommend!
Fresh sushi, all our favorites. We always dine at Shiono's when we're in Kona.
Still upset about what happened - wanted to treat my friend from Maui to some Hamachi Kama so decided to go to SS since that's the only place I knew of in Kona that made this dish. My friend has an allergy to bug bites so we need to eat indoors, but when we arrived we were told we had to sit outside because they had a private party arriving later who needed the ENTIRE INSIDE even the Sushi Bar! We tried to tell the hostess that we needed to sit inside due to health reasons but my friend didn't want to make a scene so we just said to cancel and left. We asked WHY they were even taking reservations if they had a private party and her response was that they were just putting them "outside on the patio" regardless of preference or underlying health conditions. So frustrating and embarrassing after looking forward to a relaxing dinner.
We got there on time, but one of our guests was an hour late. Our server was great and didn't pressure us to order and get us out.....she checked on us as she got the feeling we were hungry and suggested some light faire and drink while we waited for our late guest. Love this place and the food. I only come here for special occasions, becuze it's a little pricey for my budget.....but if you want fresh ingredients it's understandable.
We had a wonderful delicious dinner enjoying the outside dining experience. Will return for sure because it is one of our favorite restaurants.
Great food, fresh fish and numerous options for the non-raw-fish eaters in the group. Fairly loud inside
Really nice sushi restaurant. Casual, great presentation. Our server, Sage, took excellent care of us. Soft shell crab was ex lent as were the spider and rainbow rolls. Maguro, TAKO and sake sashimi were fresh and flavorful, as expected. Prices are a little but aren’t all prices In Hawaii a little high. We visit Sushi Shiono every year when we come to Kona.
Fantastic nigiri and rolls...service could be a bit more attentive.
The food is fresh and flavorful. The service was very good and they have and extensive menu selection
SO DELICIOUS! We arrived from the mainland and came straight here from the airport based on the raving reviews. The salad was on another level. So good, I’ve never had a salad like that before. Also got ton katsu and a volcano roll for the entree and it was amazing. Had the Kona coffee mochi to finish and it was the perfect ending. This place is A MUST GO when you visit Kona. It does not disappoint and the waitress is extremely friendly and likable! 10/10, wish a place like this was available back in Canada!
Best Sushi on Island!! Great service! Everything is fresh. Tasty deserts. Always make me and my family HAPPY!!
Was a little disappointed since it was for my birthday dinner and I had been looking forward to it for several months. My dining partner and I both ordered the miso butter fish which while delicious was more an appetizer size for $35 each. We were still hungry and ordered California rolls that were deep fried but that wasn’t very good. The lobster tempura appetizer was good but small but loses the lobster flavor when it’s in the tempura batter. Next time I will try the sashimi instead.
In Kailua-Kona on vacation, my wife and I got away from the rest of our group for a night out. Sushi Shiono has very good ratings above 4.5. It is very good, nice selection of traditional Japanese dishes. Good selection of sake. Wine selection is poor. No cocktails, which was an unpleasant surprise. Overall, good place for an everyday dinner out.
A must to make reservations and sooooooo worth it.
Fresh food and server was GREAT!!!!!!
My husband and I plan to go often!
Over all a 10++++++++ experience!
The sushi was good (I've had a lot of truly amazing sushi so good for me is relative to that) and the service was very attentive, friendly and kind. The restaurant itself is stuck into a kind of strip mall so it doesn't really have much ambiance there that says "Hawaii". Lots of good options for kids who don't want raw fish too.
This is a local favorite whenever I'm in town. The Sushi was amazing!
This is my favorite place to eat in all of Kona.
We had difficulty finding the place because it’s tucked back in an outdoor mall. We tried calling as we were walking along the main street and had to leave a message because she didn’t answer the phone nor call us back 15 min later. When we arrived, she said, “I was just about to give your reservation away.” I told her we would have arrived 15 min earlier if she had answered the phone. The place is small. We had specified “outdoor seating” before we knew what the place looked like and before knowing it would be raining on the outdoor tables. I asked if there was any chance we could sit inside. Her reply, “No, you requested outdoor seating.” The unfriendly attitude of the employees who seem to hate their jobs taint the decent food that is relatively reasonably priced.
Great food and service. Our favorite place for sushi.
Excellent service and food.
We LOVE going to Sushi Shiono!!! The staff is awesome! The food is super fresh and so tasty. It can get pretty loud inside, but we were fine because we were all talking and laughing pretty loudly.
Great time at the sushi bar. Other guests were engaging along with all 3 chefs. A fun time for all.
The Omakase is the way to go! We always make it a point to dine there when we are in Kona.
Otoro, Ahi skin namasu, kampachi nigiri, lobster miso soup!
A must try when you’re in Kona. Highly recommended
As always, great service, great food and great fun, and great restaurant.
This place is amazing! Food is top notch and the Sushi chef told us all about what he was preparing. We will go there again for sure!
One of the best places to get sushi in Kona. friendly service and great food
The waitress was very nice and the sushi was the best I have ever had. If you you think Sansei is good, you should try Sushi Shiono.
At shionos the food is always great, my favorite is the boat which I usually share with my daughter. The sushi is to die for with a large selection and very tasty.
Great food and Service!!
Best Sushi in town. Very tasty and great staff. A bit noisy unless you sit outside.
Quality is consistent which is why I keep coming back.
We ordered a deep fried roll and it was the texture of toothpaste.
Tuna was fresh which was a plus but all over food was a little bland.
The large variety of sushi and sashimi was impressive and delicious. Authentic food. The butterfish dinner was prepared perfectly. Service was friendly and fast, even when the restaurant’s dining room and outdoor patio filled to capacity.
The sushi is always great
Hands down best sushi in town. Worth the price. You can tell the chefs take pride in their craft and the servers always have Aloha. Quality, value and a great ambience.
We had an amazing meal at this restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food was fresh!
Tempura was incredible
