We had an amazing meal at this restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food was fresh!
Tempura was incredible
Sushi portions were small, but it was very good food.
The best sushi I have had in years!! We sat at the bar and watched our rolls being expertly prepared. If you are on the big island you must eat here!
As always food and sushi at it's best! One of my favorites for good quality sushi!
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The quality of food was good and fresh. It's our second time there and will be back.
Foods are great!!
I like rainbow rolls ,chicken karaage and volcano rolls. I want to go there again :)
Abbiamo optato per questo locale, carino, personale gentile, cibo buono e prezzi nella media,
A local favorite. The food is always good here. Lots of options and the freshness and quality are bar none.
Maybe my expectations were too high? I love Dragon Rolls. I order it at every sushi restaurant I go to. The Dragon Roll was subpar...not a lot of flavor. I didnt mind it. It was only okay.
Fresh vibrant flavors, luscious fish. Sushi Shiono has been consistently excellent for years and has never let us down.
Too expensive for the quality received. Chicken Katsu dry and flavorless. Toro sashimi was $45. More then dinner. Two people, 3 beers was $150. Miso soup was not good.
Everyone there is so friendly and the food is not only delicious but FRESH!!!!!
I never have given a restaurant a one star but the service I received was appalling. My guest and I were seated at the sushi bar directly in front of the sensei. He completely and totally ignored us, he served the Japanese couple to our right, and immediately served the Japanese couple to our left who sat down 10 minutes after us, but he didn't even acknowledge us. He even filled re-orders for the others pushing our order aside each time. It was so obvious and blatant that the hostess who seated walked over and told the chef. It was not until she went over a second time (without us asking) and me finally calling him out that he started out order. I could not say whether their food was good because at this point I just wanted to eat and leave. While the sensei gave use 3 pieces of nigiri comped, the meal and evening were ruined. The hostess apologized over and over and agreed that we were being intentionally ignored so she gave us a discount. And, no, we weren't loud, rude, obnoxious or disruptive; we were two tourists (actually I am kama'aina) looking and acting as anyone else.
UPDATE: I was contacted by the restaurant the following morning with an unconditional apology; no excuses. I will commend a business which takes the step to apologize. The restaurant reached out to my guest as well and offered their apologies.The apology appears heartfelt, and I have accepted it. I will go back another time and see what transpires
Beautiful setting and the food was magnificent. Definitely worth the price we paid.
We had a great meal here, sushi and rolls were delish and exactly what we were looking for... a nice, casual night out.
over priced for the quality of sushi. Big city prices for small city sushi.
The service here was excellent and the food very flavorful and well presented.
Overall, a wonderful experience.
I really wanted to like this place. But the service was terrible because it was understaffed. Even with a reservation, it took 10 minutes to seat us and another 10 for a server to check in. The wait staff was hustling and it is not their fault, the place was understaffed. The sushi was ok.
We were given a warm greeting even though it was very busy. When we said we had a reservation, we were told the computer wasn’t working and so we had to wait. The hostess informed us that 2 other tables who made reservations that didn’t work in the computer were also waiting as well as one other who didn’t have a reservation. The wait was only around 10 minutes and we were seated right away. Had chefs sashimi, Hawaiian volcano roll, appetizer tempura, spicy tuna roll, and pickled radish roll. All good. Spicy tuna was really good. Chef sashimi has jalapeño and my wife didn’t care for that. It was busy and service was good once seated but felt like they were short one server. Only real issue was the reservation system.
Too many flies and not great food
We ordered the Sushi boat for two, the descriptions on the menu stated 9 pieces of sashimi of chef's choices. By the times the food arrived, we only get 5 pieces. We have to asked the servers about the rest of the sashimi. The service is very slow.
Over all the sashimi and sushi is very fresh and tasty. Very pricy but on par with other restaurants in the area.
Food is very good , fresh , the only complaint is they charge $1 per cup of green tea, that is a bit pricey! Who would just have a cup of tea ONLY for the whole dinner ?? Usually the restaurant charge per person and they gave a tea pot yo refill .
When in Kona, this is THE sushi bar to hit. Great sake selection. Great sushi! Attentive service.
We elected to sit outside and it was extremely pleasant. Great service.
Best sushi we have had in Hawaii. Really fresh and beautifully prepared and presented.
Visiting Kona, our VRBO owner suggested and she is a chef. We loved this place! Service was a bit slow so dont be in a huge hurry. Worth the wait.
The food and service were great. A favorite place to dine in Kailua-Kona. I highly recommend it!
Excellent food and service like always. We love The royal boat .
Good, very helpful service , good sake selection & a good value
OISHI !!!!! Good food, good service n good overall. Love the House salad n furikake chicken is the bomb. OpenTable reservations is a must to eat at Sushi Shiono 👍
Table was not available .
The food is always great. Always fresh with some creative choices on the menu with reasonable pricing. We always make a point to eat here especially when we have visitors. Sometimes the service is a little slow due to short staff but always friendly. The only other drawback is the noise level is too high sometimes if you are looking for a quiet romantic evening. There are outdoor tables that are less noisy but the view isn't great. I would still recommend sitting inside.
Made a reservation through open table. Arrived on time. Waited 20 minutes to be seated. Waited another 15 minutes to be serviced. But food was great.
The best sushi in Kona! extensive menu satisfying every palate. Service is always excellent, food is fresh and your meal is served timely. I’ll miss this restaurant when I go home
Best Japanese restaurant in Kona!
Excellent sushi and sashimi. Some interesting rolls
Restaurant doesn’t honor reservations!!! Don’t book just go! Food is great but they can not handle busy times
Decent. Hreat service
