Just “ok”. None of the sushi we had was stellar. We eat a lot of sushi- wouldn’t go back.

Really fine food presented nicely at a very reasonable price. It was worth the drive from the Hilton (30 min). Give this place a try. You’ll be glad you did.

Loved the deluxe sushi boat and seafood salad! The teriyaki beef was so tender and sashimi was fresh and sweet. Can’t ask more for a great night to end our vacation in the island.

Worst possible waitress / manager. Fixed up our Nigri Sushi plate. And when asked, gave us a rude look.

Be careful ordering the roll with Serrano chilis - it is super spicy. The tuna tataki was melt in your mouth delicious!

Sushi was really fresh especially abalone and kanpachi were excellent. Our server and other staff were very nice and attentive. We will definitely go back there whenever we have a chance.

Excellent sushi and sashimi, big selection of sakes. The service was quick, efficient and friendly. Inside was crowded and loud and we opted to sit on the patio which was very bare bones. I’d return.

Server was pleasant and helpful with sake selection.

The SUSHI, however, was VERY DISAPPOINTING: unappealing presentation, sushi was very tiny, skimpy - rice & slivers of days old - looking & tasting fish, seafood.

We had three rolls - tuna, lobster tempura and shrimp tempura. The tuna roll was quite possibly the worst we’ve ever had and I could only eat one piece. The other rolls were nothing great, either. Mushy rice, sloppily wrapped pieces that were way too big and fell apart. So we ordered a tempura dish instead and it was not good either. The choice of vegetables was unusual and the dipping sauce had no flavor. Not sure how this place has such high reviews…. The service was very good but we definitely would not recommend the food.

Really high quality nigiri sushi. Highly recommend the hotate and Big Island abalone if they have it, and order any fish they have on special because it will be delicious. Hamachi Yuzu roll was delicious and very refreshing. Also, get their house made yuzu sorbet if they have it.

They were so incredibly considerate of my sister’s dietary restrictions and kept the food separate for us.
Thank you.

Reservation at 7:00pm but did not get seated till 7:45pm. Took another 15 minutes for a server to come to our table for a drink order. Our server never came back for our food order. We ended up giving it to another server who we flagged down. When our food finally arrived, the order was wrong. The three rolls on the plate were taken away, to finally be brought back with only two of the rolls. It took another 20 minutes to get the third roll. The food was only mediocre, the service terrible. I try to be fair as I know many restaurants are facing labor shortages but this was beyond anything we have experienced. Had the food been spectacular we might have overcome the service but to have both poor service and marginal food was why I rated the way I did.
