High prices are to be expected in Hawaii. The quality of the food was excellent. Highly suggest getting a reservation as this is a popular place. We always love to sit at the sushi bar to enjoy talking to the sushi chef and not needing to order everything at once. Not the case here. Chef's were constantly producing large orders. At one point, with a packed restaurant, we were the only ones at the bar. I suggest you get a table and order everything at once.

Saw reviews about poor service but experienced exact opposite. We were the only customers outside (inside was really busy) and the service was phenomenal. Food & drinks very good too. Agree with other reviews that the Golden Sliders area must-try.

Honeymoon! We sat at the bar in the corner. Amazing service, drinks were great, food was delicious and just the right amount. My first time eating raw eal and it was so good. The Udon soup was to die for.

Japan should condemn this restaurant, because the food we ate did not resemble ones served in all other Japanese restaurants we tried, worldwide. I reserve my judgement on only the dishes we ordered - miso soup, gyoza, edamame, teriyaki chicken, and teriyaki beef. The soup was incredibly salty; we could not finish. After mentioning the salty state to the waitress, she asked, "Does that mean you are not going to finish it?" The gyoza should practically melt in your mouth; these were far from that expectation. The edamame were OK, slightly salted with no other flavoring. The chicken pieces were grilled, where ends were slightly burnt. The meat was dry where no amount of teriyaki sauce could have softened it. The beef was dry ad over cooked. The rice served with the meat dishes was soggy; sticky rice should not be soggy. We did not want to make a scene. We asked to take away the remaining meat dishes. Upon departure, we discarded them into a waste bin. We hate wasting food, but that was not edible. Maybe their sushi is better. But if not.....beware, you will not be eating Japanese cooking.

First time we went to Sushi Bushido and it was great! Sat outside on a warm Kauai evening and enjoyed incredibly delicious food. The service was great and our waitress was very friendly. Highly recommend Sushi Bushido in Kapaa!

It was our first time there and we really enjoyed everything we ordered. Sushi was excellent, bushido salad was the bomb. We compared prices with Kintaro and I must say Sushi Bushido topped it. Locals please support Sushi Bushido at the Market Place in Kapaa, you won’t be disappointed. Price, portion, taste and vibe is awesome! Thanks everyone great job👍🏻

Sashimii was good, sushi was good, tempura was so so, service was average the staff didn't pay much attention to the customer after we were served. The fried ice cream was good, a drizzle of chocolate would have put it over the top.

Well, we have learned if you want the LAVA roll , it's oven baked. So order when you get there, and the roll will be on time with the rest of you dinner.

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.

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.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday. Food and drinks were delicious. Servers were wonderful. When booking our reservation, I made a special request to put a birthday candle in whatever it was that we would order for dessert. We were so stuffed from dinner and my husband declined dessert, but our server was so good, she was able to get him to say yes to ice cream. He was so surprised when she brought it out with a birthday candle. Thank you Sushi Bushido!!

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.
