My husband and I are here on our honeymoon and wanted to go somewhere outside our resort. We found this place due to reviews on open table. We were not disappointed. The shopping center was nice to walk around in and had a lot of tourist souvenir places. We had four sushi rolls miso soup sparkling sake and a Mai Thai. They had live music and indoor / outdoor seating.
We were seated outside, so we were easily forgotten. They forgot one of our sushi platters, and didn’t know till a sever came to check on us 10-15min later. The sushi was “okay”, tempura ice cream “meh”. Would not recommend.
No bathroom in the restaurant but food and service was good
The freshness of the fish was outstanding. We ordered the special ono three ways and it was perfect. The rolls, salad and drinks were excellent. We always come here when on Kauai
Wonderful service! We ended up trying all three of their specials and boy did they not disappoint us. The moi with black bean sauce was so delicious and same with our ahi trio and blue fin tuna nigiri. Totally hit the spot.
This is a casual "bar like" space but the food was good. We had the ono three-ways special and some sushi, which were both tasty.
Our waitress was nice but other than that this was a poor experience. Food was mediocre at best. The staff was more interested in entertaining each other and
Naea was amazing as our server and the food was great! Thank you for the great experience! 😊
Great food, fantastic service and vibrant atmosphere. Delicious delicacies that exploded with taste and were artistically plated.
Overall it’s a 2 star service and food quality for a $$$ menu. Not impressed with the sushi or sashimi.
Not Nobu for Nobu prices.... But hey, you're on Kauai... Get used to it.
Delicious rolls! We had Bushido Rainbow Roll and Lava Roll, Both very good but especially the Lava Roll. Definitely will return next time we are in Kauai (and come more hungry), and recommend to friends. Thank you.
This family owned spot gives all of the feels. They are short staffed (thanks Covid) so make a reservation and be patient. It’s worth it.
Service was excellent, food was excellent!!
Was excited for sushi while on vacation in Kauai, however the sushi was disappointing. Had the calamari as an appetizer which was good, the wasabi sauce it came with was delicious. The sushi on the other hand tasted old, ordered 5 rolls, the best of which was just okay. Didn’t taste fresh and had a distinctly fishy odor.
Too expensive for the food quality.
Noisy inside. I liked my roll, husband liked his dish. Service very good.
Food was great. Staff was friendly, but it took over 35 min. to get our first sushi order
Great food as usual
I’m an avid sushi eater and the fish was fresh but the rice was not quite there for me. The prices were high. A miso soup was $4.50.
Great staff, great sushi. Highly recommend.
Really excellent sushi!!
We’re visiting on vacation and tried Sushi Bushido for the first time. Wonderful, attentive service, fun atmosphere (live music), and fantastic sushi. In addition to Nigiri, we had 3 different rolls and loved them all. If you’re looking for a really fun experience with delicious food, go to Sushi Bushido.
From the time that we arrived until we left, the service could not have been better. The hostess was friendly, the sushi chef engaging a d knowledgeable and we appreciated the various employees asking us if we were enjoying ourselves.
The fresh fish was beautiful and plentiful in appearance and the multiple different pieces of nigiri were just as good as any other place that I’ve been to over the years. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed some of the best sushi we have ever had.
Good sushi!! However they allowed for us to book a table 45 min before the kitchen closed, so this altered our experience. We drove 35 minutes to be there and then service was hurried. They really should not allow for reservations to be made less than an hour to closing.
Top notch sushi. Definitely would come again.
Very fresh food - was great to sit at the bar and watch the chefs work! Service was slow, had a hard time getting drinks even after ordered.
Service was maybe a little slow, but the place was busy so it was understandable. I thought the sushi was original and delicious, and very fair prices considering the location. The four of us had two bottles of wine, five specialty rolls, and two regular sushi rolls. All in all the bill came to just under $200. Definitely recommend this spot and the lava roll!
Hadn’t been to SB since they moved location, but it’s still the same great food and super friendly service. We even received a little lesson in the Hawaiian language table-side. Great experience.
We had the chef choose or courses. The “sandwich” was amazing. Lots of wonderful sushi ingredients sandwiched between two Panko coated rice and seaweed patties. Very friendly and attentive staff. Respected our space. Will return.
Good fresh food. The service was excellent and quick. Salmon skin roll my favorite.
The service was great, but the fish quality was poor
Rude and condescending hostess. They don’t seem to value the business from tourists. Our server wasn’t very nice either. A simple question about the menu gets you defensive answers. Won’t be back. Sushi was not great either..
Seemed like there wasn’t an adequate number of servers to handle a full dining room. After receiving food, we weren’t checked on until almost the end of the meal. Lagging water refills. Daughters order was incorrect but didn’t get a chance to let server know because we didn’t get checked on. Also $13 for maybe 1/2 dozen small pork wontons seems overpriced…a few dollars less would have been more appropriate but doesn’t justify that price tag. Usually we have had an over the top wonderful experience here. Maybe just an off night. We have a future reservation for an upcoming birthday here but rethinking of still celebrating here. Wouldn’t want the same experience if we are counting on a good experience for a celebration.
17 dollar appetizer was two bacon wrapped scallops, sushi rolls were either dry or too salty. Very loud band making it impossible to eat indoors and very inattentive service.
Nice night out with attentive staff and good food
Awesome restaurant and great staff. Best sushi! Highly recommended!
Great food good service obviously a place the locals
Like as on a Thursday evening it was mostly local
Folks. The live music was way to loud. It had been raining on and off so we couldn’t sit outside which would have made it a 5 star place
Food is average, for the price. We are coming from California, and were expecting good fresh selection of fish. Disappointed
