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...

Our table was available right away. We sat for about five minutes before the waitress brought us menus. The apps came out quickly but our food took a while. The food was good but kinda pricey for what we got. Overall it was an ok experience.

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

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.

I've enjoyed everytime I get to dine at sushi bushido. I'm inlove with the sake nigiri and the kikusui junmai ginjo sake! The service has always been excellent super friendly. It's my favorite spot for dinner whether i'm dining with friends or by myself. The lounge is also a great place to relax and wind down too!.

While on the Eastside good sushi can be found at Sushi Bushido. Maguro was melt in your mouth delicious. Lots of different rolls to choose from. We went with crackling shrimp and was not disappointed. Bushido balls (think malasada's) for dessert was a perfect finish. Reasonable prices no view but recommended.

Ive been to sushi Bushido before for karaoke and I had the best time! For my first time dining I enjoyed everything we ordered!! We just had pupus and some great sake. And it was plenty of food for all 5 of us share. I'm still craving the same nigiri!!! Like butter in your mouth! And the sushi rolls!! Couldn't get enough! And I can't wait to back. My boyfriend knows the Head chef and he graciously brought over his favorite bottle of sake for the table to share amongst friends. It was a great night all around. Thank you to all staff and management for this amazing experience!.

Sushi was good and fresh. Service was lousy. They were busy but not crazy busy, I had to flag someone down to get a menu. Took 15 minutes after we sat down before anyone came by. The waitress just took the whole order there. Then took another 15 before the bottle of wine was brought to us. If they had just gotten the drink right away then I probably wouldn't be writing this. If you make people wait and they have something to drink, then it usually goes better. All around crappy service but the sushi was decent.

Sushi Bushido remains one of our favorite restaurants not just in Kapaa, but on all of Kauai. The sushi is always so wonderful and fresh, and the gyoza are so delicious. When in the mood for something other than sushi, the spicy chicken sauté is always terrific.
