Sushi Bushido Ratings and Reviews
The service was horrible! body language and huge sighs constantly from waiter when Asked for more wasabi and he didn't bother to ask if we wanted to pay together or to split the check, when we responded with split the check please he then let out a huge and obvious sigh of agitation, later proceeded to the cashier, slams check book and pen down and exchanged complaints with other waiters and clerks. Food was not worth what we paid for. Asked for medium rare and got well done steak, was too intimidated to ask for a new one because of the mistreatment my family and I got. We celebrated a birthday and was not happy at all to say the least!
I was in Kauai with my wife and her parents, staying in in Lihue, but wanted to explore outside the hotel a bit. This place was just 15 mins up the road from our hotel so decided to try it. Ordered 3 rolls for 4 of us, two of them baked sushi rolls ... all of them delicious. Not a lot of places do baked sushi, and it's not obvious from the menu, but it was nonetheless a pleasant surprise.
Highly recommend the Lava Roll, and the Golden Roll. Shrimps wrapped in shoestring potatoes are a nice novelty too - there's 6 to an order and they aren't jumbo shrimps, so not too heavy or filling. Read some comments about slow service here, but no complaints for the night we visited. Staff were friendly and attentive and the sushi rolls took an expected amount of time for freshly made sushi!
Definitely recommend this place.
While in Kapa'a on our honeymoon, my husband and I were looking for good sushi. We found Sushi Bushido and decided to wait to have sushi when the restaurant opened. It was well worth the wait. The owner was great with conversation and suggestions for the menu. Our waitress was also great with suggestions. They provided a great atmosphere for great sushi and drinks. This place was such a great find; we can't wait to go back!
Sushi Bushido is a casual Japanese restaurant. Our server was friendly and attentive throughout our meal. The cost of sushi rolls is on the high end in my experience and there are no refills on sodas, only for iced tea. The rolls however were large and not skimpy on fillings.
The sushi was good and the sushi chef great.
However, the ambience and especially the service left something to be desired.
We were initially seated outside on a miniscule table where a cross breeze kept blowing cigarette smoke in our faces... we transferred to the sushi bar as despite making a reservation they didnt have a real table for us.
Once inside the service was not very good. Our server only brought out part of the order and forgot our seaweed salad. She never really checked in with us again to see how the food was (which would have given us an opportunity to rectify the matter- our sushi was handed to us directly by the chef across the counter).
So, ok to go, but better places around for the money...
Food was good but very disappointed that it is not pointed out that a "service charge" is added to check. I assume now that it is a gratuity on larger groups. Unfortunately did not see it on bill and therefore tipped very generously on top of what was added. Feel like it should be verbally stated. There were many opportunities like when you make the reservation or when they called to confirm the res, when you order and certainly should be pointed out when handed the bill. Feel a bit ripped off. Pretty sure our waitress would have known we didn't mean to give her a 50% tip. Tried to discuss by phone but never can reach anyone there by phone. Prob won't be back.
Bland sushi, no seasoning in the rice or any wasabi. A little bit of ginger and wasabi served on the side. You had to pay $1 to get more. Also no traditional irasshaimase greeting when diners arrived. There isn't much else to say. It was marginal sushi and not much in the way of atmosphere
My wife and I have dinned at sushi Bushido a number of times since we moved to Kauai, the food has always been good. Our guest on this visit had the "No Foiling Around" bake containing Crab, Shrimp, Clams etc and really loved it. My wife and I had the Tempura Shrimp (8 pieces each).
Horrible service. Rolls were just ok. Kids meal was completely over fried and unappealing. Server forgot about us while he set up the back room. Never checked on us or refilled waters or asked for drinks or desserts. I had to ask someone else for silverware and plates. The hunt him down for our bill. Sucked.
